Gluten Free Apple Crumble


Today, I sharing with you my Gluten Free Apple Crumble recipe from my eCookbook "BecomingSweet - Say Yes To Dessert Again", which I released last year.

This is the perfect winter dessert, so I thought it was fitting that I share it with you today, as it has been quite cold in many parts of Australia. As well as it being gluten free, it is also dairy and refined sugar free. This easy to make dessert is also suitable for vegan and paleo lifestyles. If you wanted to make it nut free, then I would simply omit the almonds and add some shredded coconut or even some coconut flakes. It goes really well with some whipped coconut cream.

You can purchase a copy of my eBook "BecomingSweet" here on my website, which is available for immediate download. There are heaps more healthy dessert recipes that you will not find on my website including chocolate, raw, baked, easy to make and special occasion dessert. I really do have you covered for all situations. Go and check it out HERE.
