Apple Crumble Recipe To Impress a Non-Vegan

August 19, 2019

August is the season when there are so many apples that fall off my garden apple tree. Me and Mum look forward to this every year because of all the apple crumbles we will make and can eat breakfast lunch and dinner :P 

 

 

This year was such a fantastic season for them! I bet you we've had over 200 fall so far already! Most of them are really good quality too. Just a few bruises or a little nibbled but generally very good. Flavour wise too it so incredible, imagine sweet and juicey like a pink lady apple but with a hint of cider and fizzy sweets. 

 

They also have this delicious pink tint to them when you slice them up and when juiced in the juicer, wow the juice is pink! Pink apple juice, yes! Here's a pic for you: 

 

 

We've also had so many that we couldn't keep up so put a box out the front with a sign saying help yourself :) gotta love a bit of sharing <3 I might even put them on Olio a food sharing app that prevents waste as you can list your leftovers or spare food. 

 

 

I've included two recipes here for you, one involves an unhealthy, but very delicious vegan style apple crumble that every non vegan will love. The second is a healthy version made without refined sugar and with a better more natural oil and gluten free flour. So for those who want the epic crumble but with healthful benefits then no.2 is for you. 

 

R E C I P E    N O.   1:       C L A S S I C    V E G A N     A P P L E      C R U M B L E 

 

 

Ingredients: 

600g - 1kg roughly sliced cored apples 

130g vegan margarine

110g granulated sugar

240g flour  

 

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius. Chop up enough apples to fill a pan, pop a few splashes of water in the pan (not too much or the sauce will be too liquidy) and pop on a lid, bring to the boil and simmer until mushy about 15mins. 

 

2. Meanwhile, in a bowl add the margarine, sugar and flour. Using clean hands rub the mixture together between your fingers to form crumbs. 

 

3. Once the apples have cooked down pour them into a medium dish, make sure to fill the dish only half up. 

 

4. Pour the crumble mixture on top and bake in the oven for 45minutes until golden.

 

5. Serve hot with vegan custard or yogurt. Enjoy! 

 

 

 

R E C I P E    NO.  2:    H E A L T H Y     V E G A N   &  G F    A P P L E    C R U M B L E 

 

Ingredients:

600g - 1kg roughly sliced cored apples

150g coconut oil

100g sultanas

240g gf flour 

 

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius. Chop up enough apples to fill a pan, pop a few splashes of water in the pan (not too much or the sauce will be too liquidy) and pop on a lid, bring to the boil and simmer until mushy about 15mins. 

 

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl add the sultanas and pour over boiling water. Allow to soak for as long as possible, or at least 3 minutes, add to a blender or food processor and blend into a chunky paste.

 

3. Pour the paste into a large bowl, add the coconut oil and flour. Using clean hands rub the mixture together between your fingers to form crumbs. 

 

4. Once the apples have cooked down pour them into a medium dish, make sure to fill the dish only half up. 

 

5. Pour the crumble mixture on top and bake in the oven for 45minutes until golden.

 

6. Serve hot with vegan custard or yogurt. Enjoy! 

 

I hope you enjoyed reading these recipes and a little chat about my apple tree, feel free to use gluten free flour in the top recipe too if you want an indulgent gf crumble. I would say for healthful benefits if you enjoy larger portions to go for the 2nd healthier crumble but if you like a smaller quantity treat or need to gain weight then 1st option is good. 

 

I always want to promote healthful eating, and this includes having a sweet treat. What's great is that having a sweet treat similar to your old favourites is very healthful both mentally, socially and physically.
