MCLV Mange: Healthy Apple Crumble

When Stemilt – A family run fruit farm – Reached out and asked if I was interested in trying their new apple variety, all I could picture was baking a health apple crumble.

The SweeTango is the successor to Honeycrisp apples, and man did they live up to the hype!! Sweet, but tangy, and super crunchy. I had trouble saving enough to play around with some new recipes!

First up, I made a Fall favorite – A healthy twist on a traditional apple crumble.

Healthy Apple Crumble

Apple Ingredients:

  • 4-5 Apples
  • 1 Tsp of Lemon juice
  • 2 Tsp of Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tsp of Cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp of Water

Crumble Ingredients:

  • 1.5 Cups of almond meal {Any gluten-free flour could work or a combo}
  • 1 Tsp of Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp of Salt
  • 1/4 Cup of Coconut oil
  • 1/4 Cup of Maple Syrup
  • Optional: Add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts for an added crunch

Note: I made two versions of this, one with flour and one with oats, the latter being my usual go-to. And, to my surprise, the boyfriend’s favorite was hands down the one with flour. If you’d prefer to try oats, use 1 cup of oats and 1/2 cup of gluten-free flour.


  • Pre-heat oven to 350
  • In a large mixing bowl toss the chopped apples with lemon juice, maple syrup, cinnamon, and water. Then pour into a greased 9×9 baking pan.
  • Use the now empty cinnamon-y bowl to mix together the flour/oats, cinnamon, salt, coconut oil, maple syrup, and nuts if desired. Mix until the liquids are absorbed and you’ll get a sticky dough-like substance. Pour over the apples, or use your fingers to crumble and drop the topping onto the apples.
  • Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes until the apples reach your desired texture. If the top of the crumble starts to look too brown, you can cover the pan loosely with a piece of aluminum foil for the final ~10 minutes.
