Paleo sweetener free apple crumble

Sweetener Free Paleo Apple Crumble.

Paleo apple crumble is usually smothered in honey, maple, coconut sugar, dates (or all of the above). Yes, way healthier than the usual sugar-y suspects BUT do we really need that extra sweet factor? Aren’t the apples sweet enough…?

We got our Granny Smith apples from our local SupaBarn (as part of our SupaMerry collab!) and in this paleo apple crumble’s case. YES! They are definitely sweet enough. We think you’ll agree. Tasty, sweet goodness minus the sweetener!

  2. hi guys, sounds delish but we have a cinnamon allergy πŸ™ any ideas for a delicious substitute? xt

  3. Got this in the oven now! I’m guessing total time is 1hr 15min? As in your instructions it says to ooh for 15min, then further 45 mins? Either way, I bet it’s going to be delicious!

    You could use a little bit of nutmeg, cardamom and cloves (but these are really strong so don’t add too much!). Or you could just leave it out! πŸ™‚ YUM! xx

  7. Can you sub the butter with coconut oil? Would love to try this but am strictly dairy free, thanks! P.s keep up the good work ?

  17. Going to try this tomorrow! Looked for a sweetener free version, as trying to curb all sweet cravings ha without just substituting with a sweetener, and as you said; Apple is sweet enough! It’s annoying how many ‘paleo’ recipes I find that imply they’re healthy alternatives yet there’s two cups of maple/agave etc.

    I’m a month off sugar and sweeteners and stewed apple with either yoghurt or oat cream has been my go to, but tonight I really craved a good crumble. Thanks for the recipe πŸ™‚
