Autumnal Apple Crumble

As I'm writing this blog post it's currently 90 degrees in Atlanta; and we're officially 3 days away from the autumn equinox. *Inhales deeply*.... We don't have an actual autumn here, but that's not going to stop me from going completely spooky! October is my absolute favorite time of year. Harvest season makes me feel so alive and joyous. Let's get in the spirit together and make some apple crumble.

This is a 15 minute recipe +  25 minute bake time. Minimal ingredients and takes minimal effort. Just the way I like it. 

Tip: Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F so you won't have to wait for it to heat up!

First off, you'll obviously need some apples. I used 5 medium size apples I got myself from an apple orchard in Ellijay, GA; you don't have to be THAT extra. Where ever you buy your apples will work just fine. You may need more or less depending on the size baking dish you use. I used an 8 x 12 glass pyrex dish.

Feel free to peel yours if you choose, but ya girl doesn't have time for that! I also cut mine into cubes. Feel free to cut yours as you please.


For the filling you will need:

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

1/3 cup raw cane sugar (fyi, white sugar is NOT vegan!)

Pinch of sea salt

Evenly incorporate all ingredients in a bowl & set aside.

Moving on, let's get crumbly! For the crumble top you will need:

Dry Ingredients -

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/3 cup flour

1/4 cup coconut sugar

2 tablespoons raw cane sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 tablespoons cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt


Evenly mix all of the dry ingredients before adding in the wet.


Wet ingredients -

1 tablespoon semi melted coconut oil

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

and for the star of the show, (seriously this is THE ingredient)....

1 tablespoon ground tahini


Use your hands to mix wet and dry ingredients together in the same bowl. You will be looking for a clumpy consistency; similar to a granola. Don't worry if there is more dry mixture that won't incorporate you will want this to help absorb some of the juices the apples release when they bake.

Time to assemble.

Remember how I mentioned there should be a bit of dry mixture that wouldn't crumble? Sprinkle some of that lightly to the bottom of your dish. Then add your apple mixture on top of it. Make sure that it's evenly spread throughout the dish. You don't want some parts to cook faster than the others!

Once you've done that use your hands to crumble the mixture over the top of the apples. There's really no specific method to this. Just try to make it as uniform as you can. 

NOTE: If you like a thicker crumble top I suggest doubling the recipe.

Place uncovered dish in to your preheated oven (350 degrees F). It should take about 25 min to bake; depending on your oven yours may bake slower or faster - just keep an eye on it.

I like to turn the dish at around 12 min. Sometimes the side at the back of the oven will over bake.

Leave the dish to cool for at least 10 min before serving.

It's ooey, gooey, and full of apple spice.

I hope you guys try this festive recipe. Let me know what you think and if you make it I'd love to see it! Tag us on instagram @anxiouspotatoesco.
