Dallas keeps bringing home boxes of apples _ oranges from work on the weekends, which obviously makes me super happy. The fruit typically gets thrown out, but Dallas told everyone he was going to “feed his vegan girlfriend” and brought it home. So there have been a lot of oranges and apples in my tummy lately blank Mini Vegan Hot Apple Crumble

As much as I love eating fruit as is, I was wanting to do something creative with it. I remembered my new little ramekins and decided dessert had to be made: Mini Vegan Hot Apple Crumble sounded perfect <3

I peeled the apples, cored them, and diced them.

Into the ramekins they went! One for me, one for Dallas blank Mini Vegan Hot Apple Crumble

I stirred the maple syrup, arrowroot, stevia, and cinnamon in with the apples {though I think this would have been easier to do in a bowl}.

Next, I mixed together the dry ingredients for the crumble topping.

The applesauce and vegan butter were cut into the dry ingredients with a fork and mixed well.

The crumble mix was spread evenly on top of the apples in the ramekins, and then put in the oven for about 22 minutes.

  1. These look so cute and delicious! I have ramekins but have never used them because I never know what to put in them. I am so going to make this. It sounds perfect for a cold SF day like today. And great tip about using the toaster oven! Thank you!

    I love apples! I have about three EVERY day (we have an itty-bitty apple orchard, so there are four full boxes of medium-sized apples in the garage).
    My favorite winter dessert? Anything with root veggies (squash and pumpkin, yams, you know), Christmas/fall cookies, and brownies!!!! I don’t know about you, but warm individual brownie lava cakes really hit the spot on a cold winter evening!

    • Oh my gosh…genuis!! You’ve just given me THREE new ideas for mini desserts!! Thank you!! :D :D

      Kiiiinda jealous that you have an apple orchard, because I’d be climbing all over those trees. Apples are one of my favourite fruits, especially the Pink Lady variety!

      • Kit-Kat says:

        Oh my gosh, Pink Lady apples are one of my favorites, too! I love their skin color (the pretty green/pinky red/ yellow orange marble effect) and how the flesh has a pleasent, sweet tang, and it’s not overly juicy with water. Oh, I wish they were in season here in Washington, but right now it’s Fuji, Gravenstine, Honey Crisp, Cameo, and Gala apple season.
        Do you like Red Delicious apples? I don’t. They have no flavor at all, in my opinion. I think they’ve been “over bred” (haha, funny term, I know :-) ).

        • yesss, you just described all the reasons I love Pink Lady apples! They’re not in season here anymore, either :( I don’t like Red Delicious apples, either, and I only know ONE person who does! I don’t understand why they’re still being produced if no one likes them. They’re grainy and icky and blah :P

    Definitely rhubarb crisp with rhubarb from our garden. so good :D

  4. Oh man, those look ridiculous. I have such a soft spot for any sort of apple crisp or crumble – one of my fave desserts for sure!

  5. Oh these look so delicious! I love the miniature servings, way to keep yourself on portion control! Delish!

    These look so good. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

  7. Hubba Hubba!!!! Girlfriend, you kill me with all this FAB food you’ve been posting this blog! This looks so healthy and divine, thank you for another thing I have to try ;)

    xxoo
