Apple Crumble (E)

Nothing wrong with the real thing, right? Here’s how to make an E-style apple crumble using regular old apples and regular old oats. This is a delish breakfast or afternoon snack with either unsweetened almond or unsweetened cashew milk poured on top. Drive Thru Sue’s may want to use a squirt of fat-free Reddi-wip, and we’ll just hide Serene’s eyes. This crumble doesn’t boast a lot of protein so if using alone as a meal or snack, pair it with a Collagen Tea, a Healing Trimmy, or some 0% Greek yogurt. This is so easy!

Serving Size: Multiple-serve


For the Apple Base…
– Coconut oil spray (optional)
– 5 large apples, peeled, cored, and diced
– 1/2 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk
– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1 Tablespoon THM Gentle Sweet

For the Crumble…
– 1 & 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
– 1 Tablespoon butter or coconut oil
– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 2 pinches Mineral Salt
– 2 & 1/2 tablespoons THM Gentle Sweet
– Coconut oil cooking spray


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly coat an 8-inch square pan or 7 × 9-inch rectangular baking pan with coconut oil spray.

2. Make the apple base. Place the diced apples in the prepared pan. Pour the almond milk over the apples, then sprinkle on the cinnamon and Gentle Sweet. Stir together, then set aside.

3. Make the crumble. Place ½ cup of the oats in a food processor with the butter and process until the oats break down into small particles (not a smooth, finely ground flour but a very coarse flour). Add the rest of the oats, then add the cinnamon, salt, and Gentle Sweet, and pulse to combine. You can pulse enough so the rest of the oats get chopped just a little, but you still want them pretty chunky and almost whole.

4. Pour the crumble over the apples, then spray the top with a little coconut oil spray and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the top is browned and a little crisp (you can broil at the end for a few minutes if desired for extra crispness, but watch out it doesn’t burn).
