Cinnamon fried winter apples with nutty crumble

6 portions

 

Ingredients

700 g winter apples

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 pinch himalayan salt

2 tbsp cold pressed coconut oil

 

Crumble

3 dl rolled oats

1 dl almond flour

1/2 dl almonds

1/2 tsk cardamom 

1/2 tsk pure vanilla powder

10 fresh dates, pitted

1/2 cold pressed coconut oil

 

For serving

2 dl plant based yoghurt, unsweetened 

fresh lemon balm or fresh mint 

 

How to

Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. 

Core and cut the apples in smaller pieces. Fry in coconut oil, cinnamon and salt on medium heat until soft, sweet and fragrant.  

Pitt the dates. Mix all the ingredients for the crumble until crumbly in a food processor. Add the whole almonds in the end to get bigger nutty bites. 

Divide the apples in 6 small cake tins (or in one big cake tin). sprinkle over the crumble. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the crumble is golden and crisp. 

Let cool for a couple of minutes. Serve with lemon balm. 

 

Tips and tricks! Make ahead. Fry the apples, mix the crumble and put everything together. Then just bake the tartlets before serving!
