Recipe: Dairy and Gluten Free Apple Crumble

Last week I was in need of a treat and since I don't eat dairy (because it doesn't agree with Little Snicker when the cow's milk protein reaches him via my milk) and I try not to eat gluten (because it 'binds' me up) I was a little stuck.

I took a look in the cupboard and found that I had an abundance of apples. So I decided to make my own dairy and gluten free apple crumble.

Here is the recipe:


10 apples (I used medium sized apples) stewed.
1/2 a cup of sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup of gluten free flour
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of gluten free oats
3/4 cup of coconut
2/3 cup of dairy free butter (I used Nuttelex)
A dash of vanilla essence

  1. Place stewed apples into the bottom of a suitable dish.
  2. Combine gluten free flour, brown sugar, gluten free rolled oats, coconut and cinnamon in a large bowl and mix.
  3. Melt dairy free butter and add vanilla essence. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix well using a fork until it has a crumbly texture.
  4. Spread crumble over the top of the stewed apple.
  5. Bake the crumble at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 30-40minutes, or until the topping is slightly browned.
While Matty got to enjoy his with cream, I had to miss out. The crumble was still pretty sensational though, and Matty said it tasted damn good for being dairy and gluten free!
