Yummy Gluten Free Apple Crumble


Apple crumble was always a staple at our house growing up. My mum made dessert quite a bit, but it was always homemade and usually fruit based. I don't tend to make dessert often but I find apple crumble is usually a winner when we have visitors and need to make something quick and easy. This is my mum's simple recipe:

  • 4 heaped tbsps of coconut (desiccated or shredded - whatever you have)
  • 4 heaped tbsps of flour (my mum used plain flour but you can use anything here - I use ground almonds)
  • 2 heaped tbsps of sugar (I use rapadura)
  • Rub in enough butter to make it crumbly

If you need more topping just use any measure and keep the quantities ratio the same.

I thought I'd have a fiddle around with this recipe and see what I can do to make it dairy free. As I mentioned above, I use ground almonds instead of flour but you can use whatever flour suits you and your families diet. I've also weighed it for those of you that like to follow a recipe.

You'll also need some stewed apples - I just do mine plain with no added sugar or spices and I don't cook them too much - just until they're soft. I often stir through some frozen or fresh raspberries too.
