Heavenly Vegan Baked Apples with Sweet Oat Crumble











Indulge in the cozy warmth of our Vegan Baked Apples with Oat Crumble, a dessert that combines tender, spiced apples with a toasty, crisp topping. Perfect for a chilly evening or a festive gathering, this dairy-free delight is not just a treat for the taste buds but also a feast for the eyes.


Step 1: Preparation of Apples

Start your dessert by preheating the oven to 350°F. Meanwhile, grab a corer and hollow out your apples, being careful not to puncture the bottom. This creates a perfect little 'bowl' for our delicious filling. If you don't have an apple corer, a small knife can work in a pinch—just be sure to carve out a good amount of space for the crumble.
Pro Tip: Choosing apples with a bit of tartness helps balance the sweetness of the crumble.

Step 2: Mixing the Crumble

In a medium-sized bowl, mix the rolled oats, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. Stir in the canola oil until the mixture is thoroughly combined and crumbly. It should clump together slightly when squeezed, which is exactly the texture we're going for. This crumble is what's going to give our baked apples that delicious, textural contrast.
Pro Tip: Feel free to throw in some chopped nuts for an extra crunch.

Step 3: Filling and Baking

Spoon the oat mixture into each hollowed-out apple, packing it tightly. Any leftover crumble can be sprinkled on top or around the apples. Place the apples in a baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the crumble is golden brown and crispy. The aroma that fills your kitchen will be absolutely divine, a mix of sweet spices and apple.
Pro Tip: For an extra treat, serve warm with a scoop of vegan ice cream on top.
