Clean Eating Apple Crumble Slices

Apple crumble is a seasonal UK favourite. These healthier, clean eating apple crumble slices have all of the autumnal flavour but in a portable slice. This clean-eating crumble uses wholemeal spelt flour, ground almonds, oats and coconut sugar, for a more natural, nutritious treat.


  1. Peel the apples and then grate them into a small saucepan. Add the zest and juice of the lemon, and the maple syrup and then cook over a low heat for 20-30 minutes until lovely and soft. Spoon the apple mix into a wide bowl and allow to cool.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  3. Add your oats, flour, sugar, almonds, salt, baking powder and ginger to a large bowl and mix well.
  4. Pour your dry ingredients into a food processor bowl. Add the egg and butter and pulse mix until the mixture comes together in fairly large clumps. If you don’t have a food processor then rub the butter into the dry ingredients to form breadcrumbs. Then add your egg and stir with a spoon to bring the mix into large clumps.
  5. Line a 7 inch brownie tin with parchment paper, so that along the bottom and up 2 of the sides is lined with one continuous sheet of paper (to help you lift the slices out after cooking).
  6. Spoon just over half of the crumble mixture into the base of the tray. Press down the mix reasonably firmly to form a bottom layer of pastry.
  7. Spoon your cooled apple mix over the pastry base, in an even layer that covers all of the pastry bottom.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining crumble mixture over the top of the apple layer. You can gently press this layer down into the apples but don’t be too firm.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top of the crumble is golden brown.
  10. You can either serve the crumble immediately as a hot dessert, or allow the crumble to cool completely. Then lift the crumble out of the tin and cut into slices.
