Oaty Apple Crumble

Oaty Apple Crumble

This is a great way of using up leftover apples in your fruit bowl. I’ve added oats for that extra crunchiness and a little roughage. I’ve also used less sugar for the topping as is traditionally used.

Serves 6

For the crumble:

150g plain flour

70g rolled oats

80g brown sugar

130g vegan margarine or butter


For the filling:

350g apples, some peeled, cored and cut into 1cm pieces

30g brown sugar

1 tbsp plain flour

A generous pinch of ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.


Place the flour, oats and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Taking a few cubes of margarine or butter at a time rub into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. 

Place the fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle over the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Stir well being careful not to break up the fruit. 

Butter a 24cm/9in ovenproof dish. Spoon the fruit mixture into the bottom, then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top. 

Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture bubbling. 

Serve with custard.
