RAWnola Apple Crumble

Ever had to cater for that friend or relative who is allergic to LIKE THE WORLD?! Well, I am that friend and relative and I exaggerate slightly - it’s only a few food groups….

So, if you’ve ever been in that situation and all the alarm bells are ringing. “What on earth can I make?”. Well, this recipe is the one. It’s….wait for it…..gluten free, grain free, dairy free, egg free and soy free. Sorry, if they’re also nut free. That would be one hell of a combo.

Furthermore, when you’re craving that dessert but want to be healthy, it can be hard to fill in that sweet tooth. Again, it ticks all the boxes. I’ve managed to make this recipe in under 15 minutes plus the apples are natural (dur…), the nuts in the RAWnola have been sourced from the best supplier and only coated in natural spices. Bingo.

The portion below is fairly large, as I always freeze some for an “emergency”. Remember to label too so that you don’t have to play freezer roulette.


  • Bag of RAWnola (don’t worry, you don’t use it all)
  • 1kg Cooking Apples
  • Touch of water
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Touch of Honey


  1. Fill the kettle with water and boil. Yes, this recipe is as simple as this.
  2. Grab a large crockpot out of the cupboard.
  3. Next, get your large juicy apples (I wouldn’t recommend eating them at this stage) peel them with a peeler and remove the core with a sharp knife.
  4. Next, chop your apples into large chunks and throw them into the pot.
  5. Once you have chopped all the apple, add a touch of boiled water to the pot. Ideally, you want about a quarter of the pot filled.
  6. Switch on the hob and turn onto a high heat until the water begins to boil and then turn down to a low/medium heat.
  7. Leave for 15 - 20 minutes, constantly checking and stirring the pot with a wooden spoon.
  8. When the apples have been soft and turn into a mushy paste, bring the pot off the heat and leave to cool for 30 minutes.
  9. Once slightly cooled, add the honey (or an alternative sweetener) and the cinnamon, give the pot a good stir.
  10. Next, choose the container you wish to serve your RAWnola Apple Crumble in, and add the apple mixture until it fill ½ of the dish.
  11. To finish, sprinkle a good layer of RAWnola on top, ideally until it reaches ¾ up the dish.
  12. And dah ah! Finished! Feel free to serve with a yoghurt, ice cream of your choice.
  13. To warm, preheat the oven to 180 C and put it in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
