Summer is fading, but fall is sneaking up quite quickly. Did we even have a summer? It didn’t feel like it. That’s okay though. I like fall. Cozy sweaters, warm cups of soup, apple picking, and best of all? Comfort food.
When chillier days hit I like more comforting, hearty dishes. And when I’m craving something sweet and super easy to do, I choose crumbles. Plus, they are great for getting rid of any left over fruit you have kicking around in the fridge.
Apple and Blackberry Crumble (Vegan & Gluten-free)
For the fruit:
2-3 apples, peeled and diced
2 cups blackberries
2 tbsp coconut palm sugar or maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the topping:
1 1/4 cups ground almond
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional)
2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil
Preheat the oven to 350°
In a bowl combine the apples, blackberries, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Mix to combine, then place in an ovenproof dish of choice. I choose a 10″ pie dish.
For the topping combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the maple syrup and coconut oil and gently work through with your fingers until it starts to crumble together. Spoon the crumble mixture on to the fruit to cover. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until its cooked through and golden on top. Serve warm and top with your favourite ice cream.
