I may or may not have eaten apple crumble for breakfast.  OK I did and here’s why.  This delicious, gluten free, dairy free and free from refined sugar apple crumble is so healthy that I thought why not eat it for breakfast.  Equally as good as a dessert though.  From the Wholefood Simply website, easy to bake, this is fast becoming one of my favourites.



  • 4 apples cored and quartered ( I used pink lady and granny smith)
  • 4 medjool dates seeds removed

Crumble Ingrediens

  • 1 heaped cup of walnuts ( I used pecans and almonds too)
  • 50 grams of chopped coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt (optional)



  • Preheat the over 180 degrees
  • Pulse the crumble ingredients in your blender/food processor and then put aside, just to a crumbly mix, not breadcrumbs.
  • Then put apples and dates into the food processor and blend till chopped and mixed together.
  • Pour apple mixture into ramekins ( mind made 4) Top with the crumble mixture.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 mins


I served mine with coconut yogurt and fresh strawberries and of course a coffee.
