I created this recipe when I first got my thermomix, and have since made it multiple times.
Everyone loves my apple crumble.
I’ve even made it in bulk for a Soupa Sundays at my church! So, to say it’s been taste tested is an understatement, as it’s been extensively taste tested!
It’s a great recipe when you have excess apples. I don’t understand why towards the end of the week the kids don’t eat the apples. Surely, it’s not just my household. Lately, we have had quite a few apple crumble desserts, as over the school holidays we received so many pink lady apples in our Box Divvy orders and we just couldn’t eat them enough.
I usually serve it with a yummy vanilla homemade ice cream, fruity dream (banana is my pick) or with homemade custard.

*We love using Almond Meal that I buy in bulk from Costco. You can weigh out 110g almonds and blitz in the thermomix on a high speed to make your own almond meal. I have also made it with a blend of both whole almonds and almond meal to add a more texture to the crumble.
**An alternative to my flour mix is any shop brought gluten free plain flour.
If you don’t own a thermomix then use a food processor to roughly chop your apples, then cook them in a saucepan on the stove top. For the crumble, blitz it together in the food processor.
