Easy apple crumble

For a 17x14 cm baking dish – serves 6 approximately

 

 

5 apples

Ground Vanilla

Ground cinnamon

¼ cup maple syrup

1 tablespoon coconut oil

¼ cup water

1 cup oats

1 cup buckwheat flakes (or any other flakes)

½ cup flaked almonds

½ cup walnuts

 

 

Peel the apples, dice them and then cook them in a pot with water, ½ teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of vanilla, until they are soft (but not too soft otherwise they’ll become a puree).

Lay them on a small baking dish (mine was 14x17 cm)

Put oats, flakes, almonds and walnuts in a food processor and process just for a couple of seconds. In a pot melt the coconut oil, add the above mix, the maple syrup and a pinch of vanilla. Cook for a few minutes stirring well. Lay the mix over the apples, spreading it all over. I did not do it, but if you wish, you can bake the crumble for 5-10 minutes. Serve lukewarm with vegan vanilla ice-cream or custard cream (see here for the recipe).

As an alternative you could serve the crumble in small glasses alternating the layers of apples and oats/flakes mix.
