It's so easy to make this tasty vegan apple crumble. Simply stew the fruit with sugar, crumble together the other ingredients and add chopped walnuts for a nuttier taste. Enjoy!

This easy vegan apple crumble takes less than ten minutes to prepare and only 25 minutes to bake. It is a delicious and warming dessert and can be served with vegan cream, vegan nice cream or custard. Replacing regular margarine with margarine (or vegan butter) makes this recipe 100% vegan. The crumble is extra crispy due to the oats and chopped walnuts, and a teaspoon of mixed spice gives it a flavorful kick that combines well with the sweet fruit base. 

The rhubarb gives a slightly tart taste to the sweet filling, making it a perfect combination. It is worth considering when these fruits are in season in the US. For example, apples and rhubarb are in season at the end of the summer. Alternatively, a summer crumble could be made using any berries such as raspberries, blackberries, strawberries or blueberries. Peaches would make another sweet summer crumble filling and they would taste delicious served with vegan cream. Remember to try to source locally-grown, organic fruit to reduce your carbon footprint.
