Vegan Apple Crumble Dessert

Vegan Apple Crumble Dessert

Jump to Recipe

Apple desserts are my favorite to make and, of course, eat. I love making apple pie, but if you’re feeling lazy and want to eat your apple dessert even quicker, you’ll love this apple crumble recipe. It is vegan and, although I did make mine with whole wheat flour, you can easily substitute for a gluten free flour and make yours gluten free as well.

What you will need:

For this recipe, you will need 1.5 pounds of apples. For me, that was 5 small/medium sized apples. This time, I just used the extra apples that I had in my house that were going bad, but I highly recommend honey crisp apples because they are so crispy and sweet.

For the filling, you will also need the juice and zest of half of a lemon, juice and zest of half of an orange, 1 tbsp flour, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup sugar.

For the crumble topping, you will need 1/2 cup flour, 1/3 cup oats, 1/4 cup vegan butter, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 3 tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

Filling:

Start by washing and peeling your apples. Then chop them up in small pieces (about 1 inch in length). Add them to a large bowl and then add all of the filling ingredients. Mix well. Then transfer to a baking dish. I used a round glass Pyrex dish. You can use any dish that is shallow.

Crumble Topping:

Add all of the topping ingredients and mix them well. Make sure all the chunks of butter are incorporated in.

Use your hands to distribute the crumble topping all over the apple filling.

Place your apple crumble in the oven and bake at 375*F for 45-60 minutes. I like when the top of the crumble is crispy, so I baked mine for a full hour.

Definitely top it with some whipped cream or vegan ice cream!

I also made a little video to show the whole process so I hope that makes it easy to follow 🙂
