Vegan | Homemade Apple Crumble

Tonight I made an apple crumble that was so good I wanted to post about it straight away... I even sent it round to our friends to make sure Dave wasn't just being very polite and biased, haha.

With the colder weather making its way in I have been craving something warm, sweet and full of winter spice.After realising I already had most of the ingredients, I managed to persuade Dave to get some apples from the shop and then I was ready to get started.

Ingredients List:
4 apples (peeled & sliced)
3 tsps lemon juice
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 cup oat flour & ground almond mix**
1/2 jumbo oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/3 coconut oil (solid)

** this was something I experimented with and it tasted delicious. Just blend up some oats, fill a 1/2 cup with the oat flour then top up the other half up with some ground almonds. Or you could just use 1/2 cup of oat flour/any other flour you have on hand.
Before you get started preheat your oven to 190°c.
First, you want to peel and slice the apples then placed them straight into a roasting dish and cover them in the lemon juice (this is so they don't go brown whilst they wait). Then you just want to add the rest of the filling ingredients to the dish and mix everything together. It's definitely best just to use your hands as you can make sure all the spices coat the apples.
Next, you want to set aside the filling dish and make a start on the crumble...
Gather all your ingredients and then you simply need to mix everything together (in a separate bowl ) until you have a crumble like consistency. Once that is done, crumble the mixture all over the apples making sure most of it is covered.
Then you want to cook them in the oven for 30 minutes (it may take a bit longer if you don't have a fan assisted oven).

This isn't necessary but about half way through I poured some of the liquid out of the dish and then re-poured it over the topping just to get the flavours through again and make sure the very top didn't dry out.

Once your timer is done and it is looking/smelling delicious, serve straight away and enjoy. You could even add some ice cream on top if you wanted to.

Let me know if you try this recipe, or if you have any other 'winter warmer' suggestions..
