  • 4 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or almonds work well)
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


First, in a large bowl, combine the diced apples, lemon juice, maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well until the apples are evenly coated with the mixture. Set aside and let the flavors meld together while you prepare the crumble topping.

In another bowl, mix the rolled oats, chopped nuts, almond butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined and form a crumbly texture.

Next, in serving dishes or a large dish, layer the apple mixture at the bottom and evenly spread the crumble mixture on top. Press the crumble gently to ensure it adheres to the apples.

Refrigerate the assembled crumble for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to develop and the topping to firm up.

Serve the no-bake apple crumble chilled or at room temperature. For an extra treat, add a dollop of Greek yogurt or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Enjoy this healthy, delicious dessert!
