Ingredients

For the Apple Filling

  • 8 cups sliced Granny Smith apples (approx. 7 apples)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar plus more to taste if needed
  • 1/2 fresh lemon zest and juice plus more to taste if needed
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt

For the Crumble Topping

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans can also use walnuts or almonds or a mixture of all 3
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil plus more to lightly grease baking dish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and lightly grease an 8x13-inch baking pan with coconut oil.  Set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the apple filling, including the apples, coconut sugar, lemon zest and juice, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and sea salt.  Stir to combine.

  3. Pour the apple mixture into the baking dish, and place into the oven.  Cook for 10 minutes, or until the apples begin to soften. While the apples are cooking, prepare the crumble topping.

  4. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the crumble, which include the almond flour, chopped nuts, pepitas, cinnamon, sea salt, and melted coconut oil.

  5. Carefully remove the apples from the oven and top with the crumble topping.  Return the crumble to the oven, and bake, uncovered, for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and apple mixture is bubbly.

  6. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
