This easy vegan apple crisp is one of my go-to entertaining dishes. I like to make the crumble ahead of time and assemble and bake the crisps just before serving!

Recipe type: Dessert
3 medium apples, chopped, plus a few slices reserved to go on top
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
⅓ cup whole rolled oats*
⅓ cup walnuts
¼ cup flour (whole wheat, spelt or oat flour*)
⅓ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom, nutmeg, or ginger
3 tablespoons hardened coconut oil, plus more for brushing
Pinch of sea salt
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Combine the oats, walnuts, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, spice (cardamom, nutmeg or ginger), coconut oil, and salt in a food processor and pulse until just combined. The mixture should be crumbly. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
In a large bowl, toss the chopped apples with the apple cider vinegar.
Brush a bit of coconut oil onto the bottom of 4 ramekins, and add the apples. Sprinkle with the crumble mixture. Top each with the remaining apple slices
Bake covered for 20 minutes, then uncover and bake 15 minutes more, or until the apples are soft and the crumble is golden brown.
Let sit for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with scoops of (vegan) ice cream.
This can also be made in a single baking dish, 8x8 or equivalent.
