Chai Spiced Apple Crumble
This Chai Spiced Apple Crumble is the perfect fall dessert. It’s incredibly delicious, super simple, and packed with the natural nootropic benefits of Chai Bliss!
1 cup rolled oats
⅔ cup almond flour
⅔ cup coconut sugar
½ cup pecans, roughly chopped
½ teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 ½ pounds apples, peeled, cored, and roughly chopped
¼ cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons bourbon or water
1 tablespoon Chai Bliss
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ tablespoon cornstarch
For The Topping
For The Filling
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish with butter or coconut oil. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, add the oats, almond flour, coconut sugar, pecans, and salt. Stir to combine.
Add the softened butter to the oat mixture and, using a fork, cut in the butter until you get an evenly moist crumb texture.
In a large bowl, combine the chopped apples, maple syrup, bourbon or water, Chai Bliss, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Stir to combine completely.
Carefully pour the apple mixture into the prepared baking dish, spreading it into an even layer. The dish should be quite full.
Scatter the oat mixture evenly over the top of the apples.
Bake the crisp for 45-55 minutes, until the apples are tender and the crumb topping is crisp and golden brown. Turn the baking dish as needed to prevent one side from browning too quickly. If the top is browning too quickly, tent it with foil and continue baking until the apples are tender.
Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream or a bit of whipped coconut cream. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
