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.
