Clean eating Apple Crumble
Coconut and Oat crumble on top of sweet juicy apple filling. Agh! SO Good!
This recipe is based on a Masterchef episode I watched a couple years ago. Since then, its been a regular addition to our meal plan. 3 out of 4 of my kids love it. I’m still working on No. 4. But not too much as it means there is more for me. It makes a good mid morning snack too after dropping kids at school.
It’s actually so simple to make and you probably have most of the ingredients already in your pantry. You can use fresh apples, but I used canned apple so I always keep a couple cans in my pantry for an easy dessert. It’s ingredients are: Apple and apple juice, so that’s OK with me. If I don’t go out of my way to make Clean Eating easy, then it just wouldn’t happen.
This apple crumble (the actual one featuring in this post) was made last minute because I felt like a hot dessert so I had to take a picture of it outside to try and chase the last bit of light for the evening. I don’t think the photo does this dessert justice. Don’t let it put you off. IT’S DELICIOUS!
I make it in two stages: The filling and the crust.
Then sprinkle the crumble on top of the apple filling and pop it in the oven. If you are making the apple crumble earlier in the day, you can cover and refrigerate at this stage so it’s ready to go in the oven later that evening.
