No-Added-Sugar Apple Crumble

Method

Vegetarian // Egg-Free // Nut-Free

Preheat the oven to 180℃


Peel all the apples to start


Add 50mls of orange juice to a pan and bring it to the boil


Chop the apples into small chunks (roughly around 1 inch) and add them to the boiling juice as you go (this allows you to get a good mix of well cooked and harder, more chunky apples in your final dish).


Once all the apples are in the pan, add the cinnamon and the raisins and turn the heat down slightly. Add a lid to the pan and cook for another 10 minutes or so (you can add a little water to the pan if necessary).


Once some of the apples are nice and soft, turn the heat to a simmer and remove the lid. Allow any remaining juice to evaporate out of the pan and then remove the apple mixture from the heat and add to the bottom of a crumble dish (roughly 20 cm by 20 cm in size, but any will do).


For the crumble:


Add the butter, oats and flour into a bowl with the orange zest and mix together using your fingers (or pulse the ingredients together in a food processor).


Once the mixture is a similar texture to breadcrumbs and is mixed all the way through, pour on top of the apples and give the container a little shake to make sure it fills in the gaps.


Pop the crumble in the oven for around 20 minutes or until it goes a nice golden brown on top.


Once cooked, serve warm with a dollop of natural yogurt and a little orange zest to top.
