Apple Filling:

3 big organic apples and 1 pear  (or be creative and use apples and plums!)

2 tbsp coconut blossom sugar

3 tsp cinnamon

3 tbsp water (more when needed)



120 g / 1 cup rolled oats

80 g / 1/2 cup coconut flour

50 g / 1/2 cup ground almonds

50 g/ 1/4 cup coconut blossom sugar

170 g / 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil



150 g/ 1 cup  ground almonds

Liquid from the cooked apples/pear/plums



  1. Start with the apple/pear filling. Chop the fruits in small pieces and add all the ingredients for the filling in a small pan. Let it boil for about 15-20 minutes, until the fruits are soft. Add some more water (1/2 cup) if  it´s not juicy enough. You should have some liquid with the fruits. Set aside.
  2. Mix the ground almonds for the crumble with 3 tbsp of the fruit filling cinnamon-liquid and set aside.
  3. Mix all the dry ingredients for the base in a large bowl or in a food processor. Than add the coconut oil (not melted coconuit oil). You can use your hands to mix the coconut oil with the dry ingdredients. Be sure it sticks together very well.
  4. Put 1/3 of the dough aside.
  5. Press out the dough for the base over a parchment paper. (20x15 cm). You can use a small pan or a cake mold for this.
  6. Spread the apple/pear filling and 2-3 tbsp of the cinnamon liquid over the base.
  7. Prepare the crumble. Mix the crumple (step 2) and the batter that you have set aside (step 4) together. Be sure it sticks together well and add some maple syrup or rice syrup if its doesn´t.
  8. Spread the crumble mixture over the filling and press it down carefully to make the surface evenly.
  9.  Heat the oven to 180 C and bake the cake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown! 
  10. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or vanilla sauce.
  11. Enjoy with good company and some tea!
