Easy Gluten Free Apple Crumble w/Berries

Here's a wonderful Apple Crumble that can do double duty as a luscious dessert or as part of a warm weekend brunch! Or anyway and anytime you like. Gluten and Dairy -free, it is a welcome addition to any table.

Other berries or pitted cherries maybe used instead of the blueberries. Finely chopped or coarsely ground almonds, walnuts etc maybe added to the topping. 

Serves: 6


6 medium Apples
1 pinch Salt
Juice & grated zest of 1 lime or lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup Dates, chopped
1-2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
½ cup Blueberries

Crumble Topping:
1 cup Oatmeal
1/2 cup nuts, finely chopped
2 tablespoon Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp ground Flax seeds

To Serve:
1/2 cup Cashew or Coconut Cream
Blueberries for garnish


Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

Peel and core the apples. Cut them in thin slices, put them in a bowl and sprinkle with a pinch of salt,  vanilla, dates, lime or lemon juice and zest and cinnamon and stir to combine.

Tip the apple slices into a greased 9 inch baking pan. Sprinkle the blueberries over the apples.

In another bowl add brown sugar, oats, and flax. Combine thoroughly and pour evenly over the apples.

Bake for 55 minutes or until golden. Let cool for about 10 - 15 minutes.

Serve warm or at room temperature with the cream and blueberries.
