Clean Eating Chai Apple Crumble


INGREDIENTS FOR THE STREUSEL

¾ cup old-fashioned oats (gluten-free if necessary)

¼ cup whole wheat flour or millet* flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tbsp pure maple syrup, room temperature

1 ½ tbsp unsalted butter, melted

FOR THE FILLING

6 cups diced red apple

2 tbsp tapioca starch

¾ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground cardamom

⅛ tsp ground cloves



INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and coat an 8”-square pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. To prepare the streusel topping, whisk together the oats, flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Make a well in the center. Pour in the maple syrup and melted butter. Stir until fully incorporated.

  3. To prepare the filling, toss the apples with the cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and cloves in a large bowl until completely coated.

  4. Transfer the filling to the prepared pan, and gently press down with a spatula. Sprinkle evenly with the topping. (The topping tends to clump a lot, so break it up into really small pieces.) Bake at 350°F for 50-60 minutes or until the apples are fork tender. Cool completely to room temperature; then refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving to allow the juices to fully thicken.
