Sweet meets tart in this recipe for my Vegan Apple Crumble with Pear and Cranberry. Not only is it delicious, but it's also versatile. Don't like cranberries? Substitute raisins or cherries. Don't have vegan butter? Try using coconut oil. Old fashioned oats a bit crunchy for your liking? Try quick cooking oats. Mix in a cup of chopped nuts for added crunch and protein if you'd like. It's the perfect dessert for autumn or upcoming holiday gatherings! For an added treat, top it off with some Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Ice Cream from So Delicious (as shown above).
Vegan Apple Crumble with Pear & Cranberry
Makes 8 Servings
For the filling:
4 apples - peeled, cored, and sliced (I had Macintosh)
2 pears - peeled, cored, and sliced (I used Bartlett)
1 ½ cup frozen cranberries (raisins or dried cranberries would also work great here)
1 tablespoon flour
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
For the crumble:
1 ½ cup old fashioned oats
½ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup vegan butter, melted (I used Earth Balance)
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 325°F, and spray or grease a 2 quart baking dish . In a large bowl, add the ingredients for the filling and mix well. Add to your prepared baking dish.
In the same bowl you used for the filling, add the ingredients for the crumble and mix well. Sprinkle evenly over the filling ingredients.
Bake your crumble for about an hour, or until it's bubbly and the apples are soft.
