Welcome to fall/autumn… 🍂🍁
I’ve recently discovered how to make a healthy vegan apple crumble, and it couldn’t be simpler!
This is the perfect autumn snack that will fulfil your sweet cravings, but in a healthy way.
Ingredients for making the apple crumble
*** I used a pink lady apple
2 slabs of butter (melted)
Clear runny honey
Method for making the apple crumble
Cut your apple in half, removing the core.
Place it face down in a baking tray (lined with parchment paper) and score the apple (like a Hasselback potato).
Melt a slab of butter on a low heat, before basting the Hasselback apple.
Pop the now buttery apple into the oven to cook on a 150 degree (or 200) heat for 25 minutes (depending on the strength of your oven)
Once cooked, get your buttered apple out to cool for 10 minutes.
While your cooked buttered apple is cooling, heat up another slab of butter, this time adding the honey and muesli into the saucepan while it melts.
Stir the muesli into the honey & butter mixture until coated – you’ll start to see the muesli turn golden brown.
Once your buttered apple has cooled, drizzle the honey-roasted muesli over the top of the apple before popping back into the oven for 5-10 minutes (depending on the strength of your oven).
There you have it, a quick, healthy apple crumble with a difference.
Optional: serve with ice cream
Transforming the apple crumble into a ‘pumpkin spice’ version
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
The above ingredients are all you need to make pumpkin spice mix from scratch. Theoretically, all pumpkin spice is, is pumpkin pulp (purée) left to ‘marinade’ in cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg.
