Apple Crumble with Almond Flour & No sugar added Muesli Topping | Cooking with Fruits...

Fruits are fibre rich and most of them are high in Sugar themselves. While I mentioned that we prefer eating the fruits whole, here’s the last in the Fruit Cooking Series  - a simple , no brainer yet yummy recipe that’s great for potlucks and also for those who crave for a dessert, but are watching their weight (no! Not me L )

Apple Crumble with Almond Flour & No-sugar-added Muesli ToppingPerfect,light and very mild sugar : just what the doctor ordered after an appetizing meal. I made this single serve as we prefer it that way. You can make this in a large baking tray as well. And for those in love with Apple and Cinnamon (me , me , me :-)) this is like heaven calling out to you… 

If you prefer to make it totally grain free as the original version did, skip the muesli / Oats entirely and use just almond flour. This also goes to Harini’s Fruits Theme – Kids Delight, event by Valli, and also to Blogging Marathon.

Adapted from here and here, I made my own little variations. Serving this with Vanilla Ice Cream is totally optional, although the kids loved it that way :-)

Prep time : 10 mins, Cooking + baking time : 25 mins , Serves : 3

You would need :
  • Apples (Ripe and red variety) – 1 large – sliced with skin off
  • Brown Sugar - 2 TBSP
  • Honey - 1 TBSP
  • Lemon juice – 1 tsp
  • Butter – 1 tbsp (I used vegan)
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Cinnamon sticks – 1 inch (or use ½ tsp cinnamon powder)
For the Topping:
  • Oats / Muesli (I used sugar free Muesli) – 2 TBSP
  • Almonds - 1/2 cup
  • Honey - 1 TBSP
  • Chopped almonds – for topping

  1. Stew the apples on a low flame with 1/2 cup of water, butter, honey, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks till the apples become mushy and most of the water evaporates.
  2. Take out the cinnamon sticks if using, add lemon juice,cinnamon powder,stir and keep aside.
  3. Dry roast muesli and nuts for 1-2 mins till they turn warm, lightly powder them in a spice grinder and keep aside. Add Honey and make a crumbly slightly sticky topping mixture
  4. Grease the ramekins, add the stewed apples at the base, spread the almond-muesli on top. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200C / 400 F for 8-10 mins or till the muesli turns golden brown.
  5. Slightly cool. Serve as it is or with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
