It’s a challenge when my gluten-free, dairy-free friend comes for dinner, but I always manage to rustle up something tasty.
Everyone loves apple crumble, so if you can’t eat gluten or dairy, this one’s for you.
1 kg apples, peeled and sliced (I used cooking apples)
2 Tbs fruity olive oil
2-3 Tbs maple syrup (or honey, or sugar to taste)
1 cup almonds, blanched or with skin on, whatever you have
1 cup desiccated coconut
¼ to ½ cup sugar, maple syrup or honey, to taste
1/3 cup fruity olive oil
Coconut yoghurt, cream or ice cream
Preheat oven to 180°C. Arrange apple slices in a large shallow baking dish. Mix in the olive oil and maple syrup.
Place topping ingredients in food processor and process until you have coarse crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over the apples. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until apples are tender and crumbs are golden.
Serve with coconut yoghurt (photo shows cream which the rest of us had!)
