This vegan apple crumble is a wonderful balance of flavours and textures. It is gluten-free, however, doesn’t compromise on taste. A perfect family favourite!



  • 6 large / 1 kilo / 2.2 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and chopped into cubes
  • ½ cup / 80g coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup / 30g arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1 cup / 100g almond meal
  • 1 cup / 140g all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • 1 cup / 120g gluten-free rolled oats
  • ½ cup / 60g walnuts, roughly chopped
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup / 120g coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup / 100g + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (measured while solid)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius (355 degrees Fahrenheit).
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the filling ingredients plus two tablespoons of water, ensuring that all the apples are coated well.
  3. Spread the apples evenly in an approximately 31cm x 21cm (12.2 inches x 8.27 inches) baking dish and set aside.
  4. For the crumble topping, reusing the bowl from the apples, combine all the topping ingredients plus two tablespoons of water, mixing well with a spatula. If you feel like it isn’t mixed in well enough evenly, I like to get in with my hands.
  5. Crumb the topping over the apples evenly and put in the oven to bake for around 45-50 minutes.
  6. Serve warm with some vegan ice cream, coconut cream, or yoghurt.
