Apple and cinnamon crumble (GF, V+)

Ready the spoons for crumbly apple and cinnamon

You will need:
4 large-enough juicy apples
1 scant tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground vanilla
1 tbsp xylitol (birch)
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut palm sugar
250 g ground almond
3 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp almond flakes

1. Wash the apples and peel. Discard the core, then dice. Put apple into a pan, add a splash of water, the ground vanilla, and the coconut palm sugar. Bring to boil. Reduce to simmer, cover with a lid and gently cook for 8 to 10 mins. The water evaporates, the apple softens.
2. Fold in maple syrup and cinnamon.
3. Put ground almond into a bowl and rub in the coconut oil, until it forms a crumbly-like texture. Add xylitol. Mix thoroughly.

4. Place 8 ramekins on a baking tray. Fill each ramekin up to 2/3 with the apple and cinnamon mix.
5. Top each with 1 heaped tbsp of almond crumble, divide the rest evenly. Sprinkle with almond flakes and a hint of cinnamon.
6. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for about 25 mins. Serve hot with coconut whipped cream. Enjoy!
