2 Grated apples (I used Macintosh)

3 Chopped apples about 1/2″ or 2 cm (I used 2 Macintosh and 1 Granny Smith apple)

3/4 Cup Blueberries (Fresh or frozen)

Juice of 1 Lemon

1/4 Cup Sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon



  1. In a medium frying pan, combine grated apple, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon and cook on medium-high heat; stirring constantly until mixture is reduced to a jam-like consistency (approximately 7-10 minutes).
  2. Once the mixture is thickened, add chopped apples and cook over a medium-high heat until tender (approximately 5 minutes).
  3. Once the apples are tender, add in the blueberries and continue to cook over medium-high heat just until they begin to break down (approximately 2-5 minutes).
  4. Remove from heat and transfer your filling into four small oven safe dishes or one 8″ round oven safe dish.




1/2 Cup Gluten-Free flour (I used Bobs Red Mill 1 To 1 Flour)

1/2 Cup Gluten-Free Oats (You can you regular oats if you’d like)

1/3 Cup Brown sugar

1/4 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

1 Tbsp Maple Syrup

1/3 Cup Coconut Oil



  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg.
  2. Add coconut oil and maple syrup to dry ingredients and lightly combine, using your hands, until mixture becomes a crumbly consistency.
  3. Sprinkle your crumble over your filling leaving some filling showing around the edges of the dish so you can see all the beautiful colours.
  4. Bake in the oven until the crumble becomes a golden-brown colour (approximately 15 minutes).

Disclaimer: All oven temperatures may vary therefore cooking times may need to be adjusted.

5. Let dessert set for approximately 1/2 hour to 1 hour before serving.

*This dish can be stored in the fridge for up to 3-4 days and 1-2 months if stored properly in the freezer.
