This healthy and delicious recipe for an apple blueberry crumble is simple to make, naturally gluten-free and vegan, with very little sugar.



  • 4 organic apples peeled and sliced
  • 2 pints local blueberries organic or wild, washed
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp organic corn starch
  • 1 organic lemon zested


  • 1.5 cups rolled oats for celiacs, look for GF certified
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or unbleached organic sugar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted


  1. Put 1 cup of the rolled oats through your food processor or blender until coarsely chopped.

  2. In a large baking tray (mine was 11" x 9"), add the apple slices and the blueberries, then mix in the maple syrup and cornstarch. 

    Sprinkle the organic lemon zest on top.

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, mix all of the topping ingredients. Pour the mixture evenly over the fruits in the baking tray.

  4. Bake in a 350F oven, for about 40-45 minutes, or until lightly golden on top.

    Remove from oven and let cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
