Overview

This apple crumble mixture requires a food processor to make, but with only 4 ingredients (coconut, dates, walnuts and sea salt) it's super quick to make and very versatile. Combine with sliced apples. Let marinate with lemon juice and maple syrup for best results.

Directions

  • 1. To make the crumble, briefly process coconut, nuts and salt until pecans are reduced in size.
  • 2. Add dates and continue to process until mixture is coarse meal that still looks fluffy. Do not over-process. (You may still see small dark chunks of dates, but that’s okay.) Your "crumble" is now ready.
  • 3. Slice your apples. (If you have a food processor, you can pulse chopped apples BRIEFLY if you are in a rush.) Set aside.
  • 4. Throw your crumble loosely into a BIG bowl. Add your sliced apples on top of the crumble (and add your optional raisins/cranberries). Pour the lemon juice and the maple syrup into the bowl. Add cinnamon.
  • 5. Gently stir everything together until the crumble, apples and moisture from the lemon juice/syrup are equally distributed.
  • 6. Your crumble is now ready!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Fruit lovers, you're going to love this simple but beautifully flavored crumble recipe. This has a surprisingly buttery taste when assembled. With no butter, of course!

The lemon juice and the maple syrup add important "moistness" to this recipe (so that the crumble will stick to the sliced fruit).

GENIUS TIP:  Store a batch of your dry "crumble" in a ziploc bag in your pantry for a few days. Then, when you want something sweet, just chop up an apple, add approx. 1/2 cup of crumble, then 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon maple syrup. Stir and you're got a personal sized- crumble!

Woo hoo, what a delight this crumble is, so good I made a plum crumble that same day, it was gorgeous and will no doubt become a good too recipe. I too keep the crumble separate, ready to mix and match as the fruit! Thank you so much.

I love this crumble. I took your suggestion to mix the dry ingredients and them to the apple mix for individual servings. What a wonderful idea as I am sure I would have polished off the entire recipe in a couple of days it was so good. Now someone mentioned the raw apple pie. Got to go find that one right now.
Thank you again for sharing your wonderful recipes.
