Grain Free Apple Crumble
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 3 apples
  • ¾ cup almond meal
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 level tsp cinnamon
  • 55g butter (you can also use cold pressed coconut oil) room temp
  • ¼ cup flaked almods
  • 1 TBL currants
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 2 T sugar ( I used rapadura sugar)
  1. Heat the oven to 160C
  2. Peel the apples and core them. ( If you don't have an apple corer you can just cut of the core when slicing the apples). Slice the apples into pieces. You should get roughly 8 pieces per apple
  3. Heat the apples in a saucepan with 25g butter and saute for a few minutes on medium heat. Add the water and 1T of sugar and cook for a further 20 minutes on low until they are soft and all the liquid has reduced. Add the cinnamon and currants and mix through
  4. In a bowl rub 30 g of butter through the almond meal and coconut. Sprinkle 1T of sugar over the mixture and mix in.
  5. Place the apple mixture in a baking dish and pour the crumble mixture over the top. Let some of it settle down in amongst the apples. Sprinkle with flaked almonds
  6. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes taking care not to let the top brown too much
  7. Serve with organic whole cream or custard
