1 cup nut meal from almond milk
1 cup gluten-free all purpose baking flour or oat flour
3/4 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
4 tablespoons of grass-fed butter or coconut oil (firm)
1 tablespoon Grass-fed butter or coconut oil to grease the pan
5 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
Pinch of sea salt
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla
Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
For the crumble topping: In a medium bowl, mix the nut meal, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Cut the butter or coconut oil into small pieces and gradually add it to the flour mixture until evenly mixed. Doesn’t have to be perfectly mixed in. The small chunks of butter or oil will melt evenly while baking.
For the apple filling: In an 8-inch cast-iron skillet or creuset baking dish, grease with butter or oil. Add the apple slices. Add syrup, vanilla and lemon juice/zest and coat evenly with your hands.
Cover the apple filling evenly with the crumb topping. Bake for 1 hour until crisp and brown on top.
Serve with almond milk or VG! 😉
