Healthy Coconut and Apple Crumble

Updated Post.

I love a crumble but don’t always want a wheat-heavy one and this makes a wonderful, delicious alternative.

These offer slow releasing carbs with the oats and I sometimes eat this for breakfast as well as for a dessert after dinner!

This recipe for my healthy coconut and apple crumble is a delicious treat, full of goodness without compromising on flavour!… I think you might just LOVE it!

healthy crumble-Honest Mum


  • 2 tbsp raw, virgin coconut oil
  • 3 large Cox apples, cored, thinly sliced length-ways
  • 5 tbsp water/ apple juice
  • 128g rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 20g desiccated coconut
  • 60g cholesterol lowering margarine/ vegan butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • coconut yogurt to serve


Preheat oven to 180°C.

Grease a medium ovenproof dish with 1 tbsp coconut oil. Set aside.

In a medium pan place the apples in water or apple juice with the syrup, 30g vegan butter and cinnamon. Cook for 6 minutes until caramelised.

Place in the greased dish. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, honey, coconut, remaining coconut oil, 30g butter and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and form a crumble mixing the butter evenly into the ingredients to create small clumps.

Scatter mixture over apple base covering fully.

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown or crispy.

Dust with remaining cinnamon.

Set aside to cool for 5 minutes then serve with a dollop of coconut yogurt.

    I really like the sound of that! I am on the same ‘diet’ as you…but not to loose weight, just to be more healthy after reading a book called Grain Brain! Being a big fan of coconut oil I would probably use that instead of the margarine but that is because I don’t have cholestorol problems. Lovely recipe. Thanks!

      Ooh I must get that book, I think this is a ‘diet’ I will always live by for good health. I want to lose some weight but I want to feel at my fittest. Yes coconut oil works well, I just found I needed some margarine for the texture too x
