This Spiralized Apple Crumble is a gluten-free, Paleo, and vegan dessert made with spiralized apples!
I mentioned pet peeves in Monday’s post, and I’m going to mention them again . . . because autocorrect is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves! For some reason, it keeps changing “spiralized” to “spiraled.” Not cool. The spiralizing is a pretty integral part of this recipe, so I’d like to spell it correctly.
Anyway, these yummy little crumbles are the perfect way to transition into fall. If you’re like me, you have a half dozen apples sitting in your fridge right now, and you’re wondering what to do with them. I have an answer for you: make these crumbles! Just spiralize a few apples and toss together a super-simple crumb topping! This recipe is super-simple and delicious, and it’s perfect for early fall. I don’t want to bombard you with pumpkin recipes (yet!), so I’m easing into autumn with spiralized apple crumble . . . which bridges the gap between summer and fall.
Personally, I think that crumbles are somewhat of a year-round dessert, but the fruit you fill them with depends on the season. Berries are great for winter and spring, but apples are great for fall.
The topping is so easy to put together, and it tastes like a sugar cookie! I’d actually eat it by itself, but it’s even better on top of apples. The crumble is simple: almonds, almond flour or meal, salt, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla! I didn’t find eggs to be necessary in this recipe, so the crumbles are naturally egg-free! If you’re vegan or allergic to eggs, this recipe is for you! Also, one of the best things about crumbles is they generally don’t need to rise. When I tested this recipe, it was so nice not to worry about adding too much or too little leavener. Another pet peeve of mine is accidentally adding too much baking soda to the bake, which ruins its flavor. );
This crumble is absolutely divine by itself, but you can take it to the next level by adding a scoop of vanilla coconut milk ice cream . . . Mmm!
