barefoot farm byron pecan apple crumble recipe

Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

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.

Apple Mix

  • 4 cups tinned apples
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1/4 cup water

Crumble

  • 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))
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional, but we think it's worth it)
  • 1/3 cup flour of your choice (we use a gluten free or spelt flour)
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced
  2. Combine tinned apples, lemon juice, vanilla paste and water in small saucepan over low-medium heat. Cook, stirring for 3 minutes or until apple is slightly softened.
  3. To make the crumble, combine flour of your choice and coconut sugar, maple roasted pecan granola and butter in a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Transfer apples into a ovenproof baking dish, draining off most of the liquid
  5. Sprinkle crumble mixture over the apples
  6. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden
  7. Serve warm with ice-cream, vanilla yoghurt or whipped cream

Chocolate Pecan Crunch Raw Vegan Gluten free Keto Paleo

Chocolate Pecan Crunch

Chocolate Pecan Crunch

This little slice is packed full of protein and healthy fats. It will keep you going all day as a mid morning snack, pre gym work out boost or as a healthy indulgence. Difficulty 3/4.

  • 2 cups pecan kernal (Purchase <a href="https://www.barefootfarmbyron.com/shop/natural-raw-pecans-1kg/" target="_blank"> here)
  • 2 cups water kefir optional for soaking (Soaking pecans for 12 hours in water kefir will activate the pecans, making nutrient uptake easier for the body. It also releases the natural sweetness of the pecan removing any need for any kind of sweetness.)
  • 1 cup nut butter (I use almond or macadamia butter)
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup coconut shredded or desiccated
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1 tsp salt (I use Himalayan rock salt, Murry River pink salt is a good alternative)
  • 1/2 vanilla bean pod (Split open and run a knife down the bean to extract the sticky seeds. Use the seeds not pod. Vanilla powder is a good alternative.)
  • 5 drops wild orange essential oil, food grade (Or to taste)

Chocolate topping

  • 1/3 cup raw cocoa powder
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut cream (Tip: Open can of coconut cream and set in the fridge for 1 hour, spoon out set cream off the top. Allow to warm to room temperature before using)
  • 2 tsp sweetener of your choice (Can leave out if you wish)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Drain pecans if soaked in water kefir.
  2. Place pecans in food processor and process until a meal is formed, add nut butter, cocao powder, coconut oil and process until combined.
  3. Add all other remaining ingredients and process until combined.
  4. Taste, If you would like it a little sweeter add 2tsp of honey or maple syrup.
  5. If following a Keto eating plan add 1 tsp of monk fruit extract.
  6. Line a slice tray with a silicon baking parchment.
  7. Place mix into slice tray and press out evenly.
    TIP: Place a layer of cling wrap over the mix and flatten the cling wrap with your hands. This will stop your hands from getting sticky.
  8. Place in the fridge for 2 hours to set.

Chocolate topping

  1. Combine ingredients in food processor and drizzle onto set slice or pour on for a top layer.
    Tip: Sandwich bag filled with topping makes a great piping bag for latticing.

  2. Return to fridge to set.

Cut, serve and best of all share.

Will keep stored in the fridge for 3 weeks.
