Apple & Pecan Crumble (GF)

gluten free apple and pecan crumble

Crumble is the absolute It is the gem of autumn and I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t like it.

On my autumn lust list I said I was gonna whip one up, so that’s what I did. A sexy apple and pecan number with a glorious gluten free topping.

OH MUMMA, I wish had a steamy bowl of the stuff in front of me right now. If you fancied some crumbly goodness this weekend, I thought I would pop the recipe up on ‘ere, as ya do…

gluten free apple and pecan crumble

Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/gas 4.

You will need the following…

4 Brambley apples

1 1/2 cups soft brown sugar

1tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

a sprinkle of ground nutmeg

Handful of pecans

200g ground almonds

125g rolled oats

a lil pinch of sea salt

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup maple syrup

What you do…

Peel your apples, chop ’em into chunks. Chuck the chunks into a medium saucepan over a medium heat and at just enough water to cover the base of the pan. Cover with a lid.

Leave the apples to simmer for 7 mins until softened and just about getting a little smooshy (but not too much). Stir them up and remove from heat.

Stir in 1 cup of brown sugar and your spices, and pop to one side.

Now onto your caramel. Take a small saucepan and heat the remaining 1/2 cup of brown sugar with 1/4 cup of water over a medium heat. Keep stirring (it gets a bit crazy) and once you have your beaut caramel, sticky sauce, remove from heat.

Whiz up your almonds and oats in your food processor until fine. Then at a handful of pecans and whiz again so they are nice ‘n’ chunky.

Tip all into a large bowl and combine with the caramel, maple syrup and sprinkle of salt. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan and combine into the mixture.

Pour your apple into a square ovenproof baking dish, spoon the crumble over the top, scatter over some more pecans and bake in the oven for around 30 mins…

Once bubbling and ooozing and looking golden and delicious, ya gal is ready.

I searched for that DREAMY Oatly cream alas, I couldn’t find it anywhere, so regular custard it was (oh sweet lawdy, I LOVE custard, I could drink it).

My family devoured the entire crumble after roast, and I think it went down pretty well. Tastes just as comforting as your regular crumble, but totally gluten free and I reckon pretty good for ya as well? Would it make any difference if it wasn’t? Probs not. ?
