How to Make the Best Vegan Apple Crumble

Start by getting some freshly picked apples. Store-bought also works but there is nothing like getting the whole Fall experience with apple picking! Many people like to use Honeycrisp apples, Granny Smith, OR a combination of both! When it comes to slicing the apples everyone likes the thickness different, this is completely up to you! I personally don’t like a lot of give to my apples once they are baked so I cut them extra thin.

Next, toss the apple slices with some lemon juice, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and a dash of nutmeg. Mix until every slice is coated. Layer the apple mixture in a baking dish, then start on the crumble.

For the crumble, combine oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted coconut oil. Mix well until pea-sized crumbles are formed. Then, top the apples with the prepared crumble and bake in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let cool for 15 minutes, serve warm topped with vegan vanilla ice cream!

Can you Make it Ahead of Time?

Yes!, Make your apple crumble, let cool and store in the fridge covered. When ready, remove from the fridge, uncover and heat it back up in the oven at 375 for 15-20 minutes!
