Amazing Apple Crumble

An apple a day keeps the doctor away… and there’s lots of apples in this amazing apple crumble. 😆 Enjoy this healthier apple crumble. It is without a doubt, the most amazing classic vegan apple crumble! Sweet and tender apples topped with cinnamon flavoured oat crumble/streusel. 🍎 This apple crumble recipe is super fall cozy, comforting, and totally irresistible… AND it’s super simple to make! 🍏

Nothing gives me more fall vibes than some varm and delicious vegan apple crumble preferably with vegan whipped cream or some vegan vanilla icecream on top. YUM!

Since the Danish apple season started in September, I’ve had a bowl of apples lying around constantly, which is a little dangerous when you have this amazing apple crumble recipe on hand. 😋 Apple crumble all day every day! 🍎 Yeah, that’s probably going to happen all fall and winter long.

This is a little healthier version of an apple crumble but it still have some pretty delicious flavours going for it. It’s more naturally sweetened with agave syrup and coconut sugar. It’s can also be made vegan butter-free, by using coconut oil instead which is stated in the recipe below. It’s of course also gluten-free as are all my recipes!

Author Cecilie Bresson


  • 750-800 grams apples (approx. 6-7 apples depending on size)
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar or vanilla extract (or ½ tsp vanilla powder)
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom


  • 130 grams rolled oats (certified gluten free if necessary) (1⅓ cups)
  • 75 grams brown rice flour or almond flour (⅓ cup)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar or vanilla extract (or ½ tsp vanilla powder)
  • 65 grams slivered almonds (⅓ cup)
  • 5-6 tbsp coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 3 tbsp agave or maple syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C°/350F° convection.

  2. Peel the apples and cut them into small cubes or, as I prefer, super thin wedges.

  3. Add the sliced apples to a large bowl. Add coconut sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and cardamom and mix well.

  4. Lightly grease a pan with a little oil or vegan butter (I used a 27×18 cm/10x3inch baking pan). Add the apples to the pan, spread them out and lightly press down on the apples.

  5. In a bowl, add rolled oats, brown rice flour, cinnamon, vanilla and slivered almonds and mix well. Then add the coconut oil (or vegan butter) and the syrup and "kneed" it into the oats using your hands until it's ditrubuted evenly.

  6. Pour the crumble on top of the apples (you might not need all the crumble, it depends on the sixe of your pan and how thick a crumble layer you prefer).

  7. Bake it in the oven for 40-45 minutes.

  8. Serve with vegan whipped cream or vegan vanilla icecream.
