For the Apple Filling:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (or arrowroot starch for a gluten-free option)

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • Zest of 1 lemon

For the Crumble Topping:

  • 1 cup rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (gluten-free if needed)

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (or coconut sugar)

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup dairy-free butter or margarine, melted (such as coconut oil or a dairy-free spread)


1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

2. Prepare the Apple Filling:

  • In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, cornstarch (or arrowroot starch), ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Toss until the apples are evenly coated.

3. Transfer to Baking Dish:

  • Transfer the apple mixture to a greased 9x13-inch baking dish or a similar-sized ovenproof dish.

4. Prepare the Crumble Topping:

  • In a separate bowl, combine the rolled oats, all-purpose flour, brown sugar (or coconut sugar), ground cinnamon, and salt.

  • Add the melted dairy-free butter or margarine and mix until the mixture forms coarse crumbs.

5. Add the Topping:

  • Evenly sprinkle the crumble topping over the apple mixture in the baking dish.

6. Bake:

  • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown, and the apple filling is bubbling.

7. Cool Slightly:

  • Remove the apple crumble from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before serving.

8. Serve:

  • Serve the warm dairy-free apple crumble on its own or with a scoop of dairy-free vanilla ice cream or whipped coconut cream.
