Trickster Apple Crumble

  The name of this in no way implies that the crumble is tricky to make. Rather, it tricks you into thinking it’s a sinful dessert. 😉
There’s no butter involved, and I use only whole wheat flour (none of that bleached stuff). Tonight I used not only apple, but also peach and blueberries to give it a twist. The blueberries give it a nice little something extra, while adding amazing nutrition to this dessert. I’ll give you the basic recipe I’ve tossed together, and put the variation in brackets.

Trickster Apple Crumble


  • 2 apples (for a “fruit crumble” you can use 1 apple and 1 peach, and 1/2 a cup of blueberries)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • Dash nutmeg
  • Sprinkling of vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1 tsp maple extract


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Peel and slice apples into thin slices and place in bottom of glass baking dish. (peel the peach also, and place in the dish with blueberries at this point too if making a fruit crumble)
  • Pour lemon juice over fruit.
  • Drizzle vanilla/maple extract over fruit.
  • Whisk oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle this mixture over the fruit.
  • Drizzle the orange juice over the entire mixture.
  • Sprinkle less than 1ml of vanilla sugar over the entire mixture.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, until golden and bubbly.
  • Serve warm, and for a more indulgent treat add a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt!
Fruit Crumble, mmm :)
