Nutty Apple Crumble Bake

afile_005

There are many apple varieties, and they come with different combinations of crunchiness, juiciness, sweetness, and tartness. I’m a fan of many different kinds, but there’s something special about the combination of crunchy, juicy, and sweet in a Fuji apple that makes it perfect for a savory combination with slightly salty nuts and less added sugar. The result is a healthy dish that gives you long lasting energy for your busy day. And it’s fast and easy to make, and guilt-free because it is so good for you!

Ingredients
4-6 medium sized Fuji apples (Gala, Ambrosia, Honeycrisp, and even crunchy red delicious apples are good alternatives)
¼ cup salted, roasted almonds, or sliced almonds (pecans and walnuts can be used too; use your favorites!)
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup cut or rolled oats of your choice
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ cup melted coconut oil
Optional: 1/2 tsp of one or more from allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg (your choice!)
Optional: shredded coconut as topping

Aroma DoveWare 2.5 Quart Dutch Oven (or double the recipe for use in an Aroma Doveware Casserole)

Serves 3-6
About 40 minutes total time (about 15 min prep time)

Directions
Wash, core and cube apples into bite sized chunks. Place as a single layer in Dutch Oven. Preheat oven to 350° F

Roughly chop almonds into large pieces and place in a medium bowl. Add flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda and then mix with a large spoon. Continue stirring while drizzling in the coconut oil to form crumble. (Use a little extra oil if needed.) Cover apples with the crumble.

Transfer uncovered to oven for 20-25 minutes (longer if you prefer the apples to be softer). Remove from oven, toss apples and crumble together and serve warm in bowls.
