Apple Pie Crumble

Today was another rainy day. And I’ve been craving for a warm apple dessert for AGES!!! So today is the perfect day for it, yes?

I ran a few errands and went grocery shopping, getting stuff for tomorrow (Mother’s Day). We’ll be cooking dinner for my fiance’s mom (a.k.a. mother-in-law-to-be). She loooooooooooooves lamb. So that’s what we’ll be cooking tomorrow! I love lamb too. But I don’t eat it often. Pretty high fat content. And Chinese say that lamb meat will rise  your inner body temperature. So you gotta be careful.

Oh! And like I’ve mentioned before, I’m not confident enough to make my own pie crust. So the crust is a wholewheat pie crust from Whole Foods.

Ingredients
Pie Filling
3 large granny smith apples
1 1/2 tbs lemon juice
2 heaping tbs coconut sugar
2 tbs almond flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Crumble
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tbs coconut sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ginger

serves 6-8
1. Prepare filling: Peel, core and thinly slice apples. Toss with juice, then with dry ingredients. Set aside 30 mins so apples can soften and create juice.

2. Prepare crumble: Place all ingredients except oats into a bowl. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut coconut oil into flour mixture until crumbly/like breadcrumbs. Add oats and cut to combine.

3.Preheat oven to 350°. Fill pre-made pie crust (bought from stores or homemade) with apple mixture – making sure to spread fruit evenly and fill any gaps, top with crumble. Place on a baking tray/cookie sheet to catch any juice.

4. Bake for 40 minutes on a middle rack or until crust golden.

5. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Serve with whipped cream, or ice cream, or creamy dessert stuff of your preference. Or even a cup of coffee!

Bon appétit!

  1. rin, i’ve got a question. i heard that drinking coffee regularly is not actually part of healthy eating. is that true? it’s really hard to survive the day w/o coffee :p and also i usually drink instant coffee (150-200ml) thank you!

  2. On step number 2 it says to cut the coconut oil..is the coconut water under ingredients supposed to be oil not water? If not, how much oil do I use? Thank you!
