Healthy Coconut and Apple Crumble  

This month we tasked the wonderful Vicki over at to craft a delicious recipe for October’s #Againspiredrecipes using the seasonal ingredient - Apples.

Although the Sun is drifting away for another year, Vicki is still looking after our waistline with this divine yet healthy Apple and Coconut Crumble! We think she’s done a superb job, what do you think?

  • 3 large Cox apples, cored, thinly sliced length-ways

Grease a medium ovenproof dish with 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Set aside.

In a medium pan place the apples in water or apple juice with the honey, 30g butter and cinnamon. Cook for 6 minutes until caramelized.

Place in the greased dish. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, honey, coconut, remaining coconut oil, 30g butter and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and form a crumble mixing the butter evenly into the ingredients to create small clumps.
