This healthy apple crumble with maple pecan topping is a wonderful pudding. My kids adore it - especially when served with ice cream. It's hearty, delicious and filling. Suitable for vegans.

  • 4 large Bramley apples

For the maple pecan topping

  • 100 g pecan nuts roughly chopped
  • 180 g oats
  • 50 g coconut oil
  • 100 ml maple syrup
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C(fan)/200°C/gas mark 6.
  • Peel and chop apples. Place in a saucepan with a tablespoon of water (to stop them sticking) and gently heat with the lid on until starting to soften. Stir often.

To make the crumble topping

  • Place 100g pecan nuts into your food processor and pulse until broken down. Add 180g oats and pulse again until you have a coarse flour. Stir through 2 tsp ground cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Place 50g coconut oil into a small saucepan and melt over a low heat. Pour in 100ml maple syrup and mix well.
  • Pour the maple syrup mixture over the pecan and oat mixture and stir well.

For the crumble

  • Place the softened apples in a medium ovenproof dish. Cover with the crumble topping and spread out evenly. Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes or until crispy and golden brown on top.
