Apple Crumble (Vegan)

Apple Crumble is one of my favourite desserts. It’s such a comfort on cold evenings and really easy to make.

I’m not a huge fan of apples but cook them in syrup and top them with a crisp and sweet crumb and I’m on board! ¬†Apple Crumble warms my heart as well as my tummy and every time I serve it, my family feels warm and cosy too. It’s such a lovely way to round off a meal and bring everyone together which, I believe, is what family meals are all about.

This recipe is pretty easy. You stew the apples, then blitz the crumble ingredients together in a food processor, then assemble it all in a baking dish. Pop it in the oven and you’re done.

Here’s how I do it.




  • 4 x Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 2 cups of water
  • 3/4 cup of caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Handful of sultanas (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup of oats
  • 170g vegan butter/margarine (I used Olivani)


  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F.
  2. Place apples, water, sugar, cornflour, cinnamon, sultanas in a pot and bring to the boil.
  3. Lower the heat, add the vanilla and simmer until soft.
  4. In a food processor mix the flour, sugar, oats and butter until crumbly.
  5. Pour the apples into a baking dish and sprinkle with the crumble topping.
  6. Bake the crumble in the oven at 200C/400F until golden brown (approximately 10 minutes).
  7. Serve with vegan yoghurt or whipped coconut cream.

Hi, I'm Ana. Welcome to my blog. I live in Wellington, New Zealand with my partner in a little cottage on a hill. We are working to build a life free from the rat-race, where we get to design our days around spending time together, enjoying good food and hunting for treasures for our home. We are both homebodies and prefer homemaking and cooking to outdoor pursuits and sport. This is where I share stories of our experiences as we set our course for a life full of warmth, comfort and beauty. I hope you enjoy it.
