Hot Apple Crumble with Coconut Milk Ice Cream

I just had to make this Gluten Free Hot Apple Crumble today! The other day I tried Enjoy Life’s granola and it just made me happy! My only complaint is that it made me want all sorts of things with it like ice cream, yogurt and just the whole bag! I thought about what else it would be really good with and hot apples just seemed to be the perfect match. So today I decided to make 2 versions of this Hot Apple Crumble with Coconut Ice Cream. This one is Gluten Free and Non-Dairy also no sugar added. Although I used sweetened coconut flakes, which I really prefer you could use non-sweetened. I have never made anything like this or really ever ate anything like this before. You see, I am not really an apple pie kind of gal. I don’t really like “cooked fruit” but I have to say that I have been converted to the happy medium of not quite pie – “Apple Crumble”! I must say that if you have to cut out the dairy and are trying to watch your sugar intake, this is a very good dessert that will fool most!

I made this in one of the All Clad Oval bake pans which will serve 2 to 4 people.
Crust –
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, coarse
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/8 tsp. sea salt
2 Tbs. grapeseed oil

Mix with a fork and pour 3/4 of mixture into the baking pan. The left over 1/4 will be used for the topping.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Take it out and cool it on a rack.

Filling –
2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and chopped
2 Tbs. grapeseed oil
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. agave
1 Tbs. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. vanilla paste – I use Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Paste.
1/3 cup Gluten Free cinnamon crunch granola with raisins by Enjoy Life.
Mix with a fork and add to the pan with the crust and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes covered with foil. Take the foil off and bake 5 minutes.
Topping –
Use the left over crust mixture and add about 1/3 cup of Enjoy Life Cinnamon Crunch Granola. Mix it together with a fork and add to the top of the baked apples. Drizzle some honey on the top to just cover it in a zig-zag motion. This will help the topping brown a bit. Bake for 5 minutes then take it out and let cool slightly on a rack.
Scoop out to fill the bottom of a dish big or small, add a big scoop of So Delicious Coconut Milk Coconut Ice Cream or your favorite flavor….dive in!
P.S. I will also post the Gluten Free with Dairy (i.e. with butter) recipe later… if you really want it….
