Yield: 1 Large

Gluten-free Apple Crumble

Gluten Grain Wheat and Sugar Free Apple Crumble with whipped cream and nuts

Apple crumble is a traditional family favorite and it's hard to tell that this version is gluten-free, grain-free, wheat-free as well as sugar-free!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup almonds
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup macadamia flour or flour of choice
  • 1 cup gluten-free oats or add more coconut flour
  • ¼ cup sweetener of choice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ cup butter


  • 8 apples peeled and cut into chunks
  • ¼ cup sweetener of choice to taste
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice (optional)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 large lemons - Juice


Combine the apples, sweetener, and spices.

Mix till well blended.

Pour over the lemon juice and stir through.

Pour mixture into a greased baking dish (grease it with butter for an added great taste).

For the topping, combine the almonds and oats in a food processor.

Pulse till the nuts are roughly chopped.

Combine with the coconut, flour, and spices.

Rub in the butter until crumbly.

Sprinkle over the apple mixture.

Bake at 180C for 45-50 minutes until the apple is tender and the crumble golden brown.

Serve warm with whipped cream or ice-cream.

This makes a very large serving size which I portioned in 2.

The ideal sweet indulgence without the guilt.

  1. And coconut! Yesssss! This sounds so yummy (and timely, as I’ve been making different crumbles over the past two weeks and was looking for another recipe – so thank you!)
