Raw Vegan Apple Crumble By Shani Mohfat
Easy ✔ Gluten-Free ✔ Vegan ✔

Vegan no-bake apple crumbles have a soft and sweet crust and a crunchy crumble topping. They’re gluten free and fruit sweetened, and made with just 10 healthy ingredients, no oven required! They are a wonderful way to finish off a warm fall night while thinking of Christmas. 

This dessert is easier and faster to make than an apple pie or crisp, and requires no baking. Instead of refined sugars, this recipe uses dates for sweetness, and lemon juice for that extra zing. So if you’re trying to stay off sugar but are suffering from a unstoppable sweettooth, this dessert is very satisfying!

If you have people coming over and you have to make this dessert in advance, you can use a can of full fat coconut milk. Put it in the fridge overnight. After the top is frozen, tip it out and beat it so it turns into whipped cream to add as a topping.
