This healthy apple crumble is the healthy apple pie replacement you never knew you needed. Made with wholesome, clean ingredients and super simple to make. This might be on repeat into the winter when all of those apples from apple picking are still sitting around in your kitchen.


Fall is my favorite season for many reasons. The crisp fresh air and the transition into leather jackets, boots and sweaters. But we also can’t forget about the amazing seasonal fruits and veggies like apples, pumpkins and squash, and the outdoor activities that accompany those, encouraging us to immerse ourselves in nature and pick our own food.



Fall is the season of grounding and transition. According to Ayurveda (the sister science to yoga), eating with the seasons is essential when it comes to optimal health. Fall is especially important to eat with the seasons because during the fall, we have the opportunity to prepare our bodies for the big changes that are to come with winter. Taking care of our immune systems so they are strong and healthy before we move into the drier, colder months aka flu season.


One way to detox our bodies and prime ourselves for winter wellness is through food, and of course that does not mean crash dieting. It pertains to purposeful and intentional eating to bolster our immune systems, increase our energy and productivity, and clear our minds. And what better way to gently detox our systems than with seasonal, nutritional food? Nada.



A good guideline is sticking to whole, unprocessed foods, fruits and seeds, and staying away from refined sugar/carbs, dairy, and alcohol. Some might even say meat and caffeine, but you decide what works best in your body.


This healthy apple crumble is the perfect fall recipe to still satisfy that sweet tooth without getting too sugared up (yes, that’s now a thing). It is super low sugar and contains tahini because ’tis the season for fruits and seeds, and it also tastes unreaaal.



Get ready for love at first bite.

Apple Filling
  1. Preheat oven to 350*. Coat 8x8 baking dish with coconut oil.
  2. Peel apples and slice into even slices.
  3. Place sliced and peeled apples to a mixing bowl. Add lemon juice, coconut oil, arrowroot and vanilla.
  4. Mix well so all of the apples are coated. Let sit and "marinate" while preparing the crumble topping.
Crumble Topping
  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together wet ingredients: tahini, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  2. Once whisked together, add chia seeds and whisk again or mix with a spoon.
  3. Add dry ingredients: oats, almond flour, flax meal and baking powder.
  4. Mix together with a spoon until dough forms.
  5. Add apples into baking dish and use a spatula to make sure they are evenly spread out.
  6. When the apples are spread evenly as the bottom layer in the baking dish, add crumble on top and use a spatula or your hands (I like to use my hands) to spread the dough evenly across the top. It is ok if there are some parts of exposed apples, but do your best to spread the dough over the entire top. It helps to do a little of the dough at a time.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes until crumble is slightly browned. Use a toothpick or cake tester to poke into the bottom to make sure the apples are soft.
  8. Serve by itself or with vanilla ice cream on top!
  9. Store in fridge.
