Apple Crumble

Print Share

Our version of a classic – we like to cut back on refined sugars in this iconic dish, so we recommend using coconut sugar which has a lower GI, packed full of minerals and well as imparting a wonderfully sweet caramel flavour. The Maple roasted Pecan Granola crumble topping pairs so wonderfully with this apple crumble, and you may like to experiment with some variations like swapping apple for pear or 1/2 apple 1/2 peaches to make something unique and amazing.

  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste

  • 1 1/2 cups maple roasted pecan granola
  • 120 grams butter chopped and softened (if needed you can use oil or a vegan butter substitute)
