5 from 4 reviews

This healthy apple crumble with oats recipe can be prepared all year round, but I think it can easily be added to the list of best Fall recipes. It can be enjoyed as a warm breakfast, snack or even as a dessert. It’s sweetened with just a little bit of honey and you simply need the right oatmeal to prepare a gluten-free version.


3 apples
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon of honey
1 teaspoon of water *

¾ cup of oat flour (gluten-free, if necessary)
⅓ cup of almond flour
⅓ cup of rolled whole oats (gluten-free, if necessary)
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla
¼ teaspoon of baking powder
⅛ teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil
2 tablespoons of raw honey
2 small eggs
Some butter to grease the pan
Some flour to flour the pan

1/2 cup rolled whole oats (gluten-free, if necessary)
1 tablespoon of tahini
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of honey

Chocolate topping (optional):
4 or 5 squares of chocolate, depending on the size
1 teaspoon of coconut oil


  1. Grease and flour a 13x19cm (5×7 inches) pan.
  2. Preheat the oven at 180ºC (350ºF).

For the filling:

Cut the apples into cubes and pour them into a pot. Add the honey, water and cinnamon. Cook them on low heat for about 20 minutes or until they are soft.

For the crust:

  1. In a bowl, pour the oat flour**, almond flour, oats, vanilla, baking powder and salt. Mix all of these dry ingredients together.
  2. In the same bowl, add the coconut oil, honey, and eggs.
  3. Mix all ingredients well until they are blended together.
  4. Pour the dough into the previously greased and floured pan.
  5. Bake the crust for 8 minutes.
  6. With the help of a fork, make holes in the dough.
  7. Pour the apples on top with all of their juice.
  8. For the crumble, mix all of the ingredients in a bowl.
  9. Pour the crumble on top of the layer of apples.
  10. Bake for 10 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown.

For the chocolate topping:

Melt the chocolate with the coconut oil. You can use the microwave or a pot. Once it’s liquid, use a teaspoon to pour it on top of the crumble.


* If you use pure organic honey, it’s probably hard. In that case, use hot water to mix it.
** If you don’t have oat flour, you can simply process the oatmeal with a food processor.
