Simple apple crumble

Sometimes (most of the time) simple is best. Especially when it comes to cooking.

Using less ingredients allows the ingredients that are included to shine - can you tell I've been watching Masterchef this season?


This recipe calls for only 7 ingredients and it is always a crowd pleaser. Healthy enough to have for breakfast (just make sure you include a protein source on the side!), yummy enough to have for dessert.


Ingredients

6 small granny smith apples

5 Tbsp organic salted butter

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup almond meal

1 cup oats

pinch of salt


Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C

  2. Peel and core the apples and cut into 1-2cm cubes

  3. Add 2 Tbsp of butter to a large pot along with the apples, cinnamon and 2 Tbsp maple syrup

  4. Cook apples uncovered on low heat for 20 minutes

  5. Pour the apples into an unlined slice tin and spread out evenly on the bottom

  6. To make the crumble - add the remaining 3 Tbsp of butter (warmed to room temperature) with the almond meal, oats, salt and 1/4 cup maple syrup in a medium bowl. Use your hands to mix the softened butter evenly through the the rest of the ingredients until a crumbly mixture forms
