Apple Crumble

While I would personally classify apple and pear crumble as a fall treat, it's just too good to not eat it right now. So basically we had to make this post even though it's going to be summer soon. That being said, this crumble is tender, flaky, and wonderfully filled with a sweet and sour apple-pear filling. We combined almond, whole wheat and oat flour to give it richness, lightness, and crunchiness all together. So, if you have for some reason (like we do right now) a large surplus on pears or apples you really need to try this crumble. But be ready for this, as soon as you put this crumble into the oven your whole house will smell like heaven…

Apple Pear Crumble Ingredients

  • Apples + Pears - Because the pears tend to soften as they cook and the apples tend not to, they make the perfect mix for a crumble.

  • Almond, Whole Wheat and Oat Flour - This combination gives the crumble moisture, softness and some extra crunch.

  • Margarine - We used margarine but you could also use coconut oil or any other vegan fat.

  • Coconut Sugar - For this recipe we use organic coconut sugar, however, we have tried using organic cane sugar as well.

  • Cinnamon - Cinnamon gives this whole dessert a sweet and spicy wooden taste.

Apple Pear Crumble Tips

  • Sweetness - Depending on how sweet you want the crumble to be we recommend using either 80 g or 100 g of sugar.

  • Cutting the Apples/Pears - If you cut the pears/apples into pieces that are too small, you will most likely end up with a juicy crumble, so try cutting them into larger pieces.


Easy - 6-8 servings - 40 minutes

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F and prepare a large baking dish and lightly grease it with additional margarine.
