Sugar-Free Apple Oatmeal Crumble (also vegan & gluten-free)
makes 8 servings
10-12 red apples, peeled and cut into bite sized chunks (I used organic gala apples which were on the smaller side)
½ cup raisins
1 tablespoon milled flax seed
¼ cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
juice from ½ lemon
1 ½ cup old fashioned oats
½ cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons salt
⅓ cup vegan butter (I used Earth Balance), melted
Preheat your oven to 325°F.
In a large bowl, combine your apples, flax, agave, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Stir until well combined and fold in your raisins. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish.
In the same bowl, combine your oats, maple syrup, salt, and vegan butter. Sprinkle over your apple mixture evenly.
Bake in your preheated oven for about 45 minutes to one hour, until the apples are soft and the mixture starts to bubble. Serve hot or cold, and store in the refrigerator.
