VEGAN APPLE AND BERRY CRUMBLE

Ingredients:

  • 4 apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons cornflour
  • a handful of berries, can be fresh, frozen and thawed or sundried, they all taste good (bonus nachos if you foraged them yourself!)

For the crumble topping:

  • 120grs of gluten free flour
  • 80grs rough rolled oats
  • Pinch of cinnamon (or your favourite sweet spice, some suggestions: cardamom, cloves, allspice, nutmeg and star anise all work incredibly well)
  • 200ml of solidified coconut oil

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 / gas 4
  2. mix all ingredients for the filling in an ovenproof dish and set aside
  3. mix topping ingredients in a bowl together, use your fingers to mix until you get a crumbly dough, do not overmix as we don't want the coconut oil to melt or the flour to release any more gluten than necessary.
  4. Spread topping over the filling and bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

Tip: it you are gluten intolerant you can replace the wheat flour with gluten free mix. Make sure the oats are free from too. Works just as well!
