  • 2 medium Fuji apples, peeled, cored and sliced into ½-inch-thick slices
  • 1 cup chopped raw walnuts, unsalted (or pecans)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar (or honey/ low-carb sweetener*)


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F. Layer the apple slices in a square 9-inch baking dish, in one or two layers. You can also use four individual baking dishes.
  • In a medium bowl, using a fork, mix together the chopped walnuts, melted butter, cinnamon, vanilla, and sweetener.
  • Using a rubber spatula, pour the mixture over the apples, spreading it evenly.
  • Bake the coated apples until the walnut topping is golden and the apples are tender, 25-30 minutes.
  • Divide the apple crumble among four plates. Drizzle with the pan juices and serve.
