We are so excited to have Kathrine from Passion for Plants share this recipe with us! Read more to find out about Kathrine’s passion for veganism and living a holistically, healthy lifestyle. We hope you love this recipe and please share with us in the comments how you like it!
As the creator of Passion for Plants, I believe living a healthy life is so much more than what we eat: what we think, how we feel about ourselves, our relationships, and how we treat our bodies all impact our health as well.
One way that I have found to increase my energy is to treat myself well by feeding my body nourishing, plant-based foods! I love to create recipes that are delicious, simple, and incredibly nutritious. I believe we can make healthy food taste amazing. Healthy food doesn’t mean eating only salads or skipping dessert all the time!
I recently released my first cookbook, which I am so excited about! If you’re looking for more simple, easy and delicious plant based recipes, check it out here. Readers of Sassy Healthy Fit get an extra 10% off! Use code ‘SASSY10’ at checkout.
Many people think veganism is restrictive or limiting, but I see the opposite: a diet and lifestyle focused on (suggested edit: eating) healing plant foods. Most of the recipes in my cookbook and on my blog are made without refined sugars, because I prefer using whole food sweeteners (like dates and bananas) over syrup and white sugar. I also use minimal oil when possible. I created this delicious Apple Crisp for Sassy Healthy Fit without any added sugars (only sweetened with dates and apples) and zero oil.
This Crisply Apple Crumble makes a perfect breakfast or snack! Make it a little more indulgent for dessert by having it with coconut whip or nondairy vanilla ice cream. For breakfast, try it with almond milk or coconut yogurt (my favorite!). I hope you love this crumble as much as I do!
Crispy Apple Crumble
- 4 medium or 6 small apples, washed and sliced thinly (pink lady, honeycrisp, or green apples are best)
- 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ¾ cup chopped date pieces
- ½ cup canned coconut milk
- 1 tsp salt
- Layer the apple slices into a deep baking dish (I used 8” by 12”). Set aside while you prepare the other ingredients.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- In a mixing bowl, place the rolled oats, cinnamon, salt and vanilla.
- Chop the date pieces and add a few at a time to the mixing bowl so they don’t all clump together at once. Stir the date pieces through.
- Add the ½ cup coconut milk to the oat and date mixture and stir well to combine.
- Pour the oat mixture on top of the apple slices in the baking dishes, distributing evenly.
- Cover your baking pan and bake at 350°F for 40 minutes. Remove the cover and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes.
- Let the apple crisp cool a bit before serving. Serve with almond milk, coconut yogurt or coconut whipped cream for an extra creamy and healthy dessert. Enjoy!
