Ohhh yep we went there. We have been waiting for this moment for a loooong time. When we were planning out our July winter recipes, a humble apple crumble shot straight to #1 on our to-create list. There is nothing that screams winter comfort more than a nourishing apple crumble. I mean seriously, curling up on the couch, flicking through your favourite book, with a hot cup of tea in hand. Does it really get any better than that?
There are a bunch of apple crumble recipes on the market, so we wanted to present you with something a little bit different. This Apple Strawberry Macadamia Crumble (yes it’s a mouthful…literally) really put’s a fresh spin on the traditional apple crumble variety. It’s healthy, super sweet with the perfect amount of munch and crunch. Trust us when we say, this is a crumble that could rival grandma’s.
Sprinkle the metabolism boosting cinnamon over the top of the steaming apples. This really gives the crumble a beautiful flavour.
Mmm we could eat this crumble by the bucketload. Serious self-control must be maintained at all times when making this recipe…or else you just might be left with a whole lot of apple and strawberries – with no crumble, and THAT would not be a good situation.
Apple Strawberry Macadamia Crumble
Total Time: 35 minutes

- 1/4 cup pepitas
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut oil or organic butter
