Healthy apple crumble

As we are going through apple season, I couldn’t skip an apple recipe! So today I'm sharing, a healthy apple crumble, which is perfect for dessert, breakfast or snack!

Vegan, soy free, gluten free, refined sugar free | Serves 2 | DESSERT


For the apples:

  • 2 apples
  • 20g plant-based butter/margarine
  • 1/2teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 30ml water

For the crumble:

  • 3 tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons of oats
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I used amino animo)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1.2 teaspoon cinnamon

Serve with:

  • Plant based yogurt
  • Maple syrup
  • Cinnamon



1.Cut the apples in small pieces and place them in a pan on a medium heat with the butter.

2.Saute for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3.In the meantime, prepare your crumble. In a bowl, add the peanut butter and maple syrup, cover and place in the microwave for 1 minute.

4.Alternatively, add your bowl it over a pot with simmering water, creating a bain-marie (the bowl shouldn't be touching the hot water!). Wait for the mixture has melted and remove from the heat.

5.Remove the bowl over the bain-marie or microwave carefully (it's going to be hot!) and add the rest of the crumble ingredients. Mix well, I found that a fork worked better.

6.Back to the apples, add the cinnamon and water and cook until the water has been absorbed.

7.Place the apples in a small oven safe Pyrex, then sprinkle the crumble on top.


8.Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 10 minutes.


9.Serve with plant-based yogurt, maple syrup and a pinch of cinnamon.




  • I used pink lady apples, but you can use any apple you have/like.

  • I used crunchy peanut butter, but feel free to use smooth if you prefer.

  • You can substitute the maple syrup with any other sweetener of your preference.
