Contains nuts and dairy

This apple crumble is gluten-free and without added sugar, but doesn’t lack in flavour (I promise!). Traditionally a tart apple variety such as Granny Smiths are used in pies and crumbles, but since the only other sweetness here is three dates, try for a slightly sweeter variety such as Gala or Red Delicious. I don’t bother peeling the apples either, there’s good stuff in the skins and it softens during cooking. Better still, it saves you a little extra time!

Oh and just because it’s called apple crumble it doesn’t mean to say you can’t throw in some other fruits like berries or rhubarb. This also makes a delicious breakfast treat the following day, topped with creamy Greek yoghurt.


  • 4 - medium size apples such as Fuji, Gala, or Red Delicious
  • 1tsp - ground ginger
  • 70 g - butter
  • 3 - medjool dates
  • 100g - mixed natural whole nuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Core and cut the apples into a fine dice- don’t bother about peeling them.
  3. Add them to a saucepan with the ginger and a splash of water.
  4. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring a couple of times until the apples have just started to soften. Set aside to cool.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles tiny pebbles. Make sure you keep an eye on it and don’t over-process!
  6. Put the apples in a 1 litre ovenproof dish.
  7. Cover with the crumble topping, taking care not to press down too firmly.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes.
  9. Leave to rest for 5-10 minutes then serve warm with cream, unsweetened Greek yoghurt.
