Apple, pear and peanut butter crumble

Pudding & Cake Serves 8 1h
A recipe by Niki Webster, aka Rebel Recipes: “This is an extra special type of crumble. The gooey base is made from seasonal apples and pears with sticky dates and spices, then topped with a lovely nutty peanut butter topping. Absolutely perfect for this time of year when you want something super cosy and delicious. I love to serve it warm with cold and creamy coconut yogurt or some warm cardamom custard.”


For the vegan crumble topping:

  • 100g ground almonds
  • 6 tbsp oats
  • 3 tbsp wholewheat flour
  • 3 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp all spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 5 tbsp peanut butter
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

For the fruit:

  • 2 small apples peeled, cored & chopped into small cubes
  • 2 medium pears peeled, cored & chopped into small cubes
  • 4 tbsp water - more if needed
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
