Total Time1 hr 5 mins
- 3 medium apples, chopped into rough 1-inch cubes.
- 3 large stalks rhubarb, chopped into inch-long pieces (about 6 cups)
- ¼ cup maple syrup or coconut nectar
- 1½ cups ground almonds
- ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats
- ⅓ cup coconut sugar
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ cup coconut oil
Preheat your oven to 150°C/300°F.
Gently heat the rhubarb and apples on a medium-low heat in a saucepan, adding 1-2 tbsp water and stirring frequently until the mixture begins to bubble.
Continue to cook until the fruits have softened and disintegrate when touched with a spoon (about 15-20 minutes).
Remove from the heat and stir in maple syrup or coconut nectar. Set aside.
Mix the ground almonds, oats, coconut sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl until all ingredients are combined.
Rub the coconut oil into the mixture with your hands until it resembles a breadcrumb-like texture.
Spoon the fruit mixture into an oven-proof baking dish, and sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.
Bake for 20 minutes, until the top is lightly browned and the fruit bubbling.
Serve immediately with ice cream. Enjoy!
If you’d prefer not to use oats, simply substitute them for ½ cup brown rice flour instead.
For a nut-free option, simply omit the ground almonds and replace with an extra 1½ cups oats.
