Apple, Macadamia & Coconut Crumble

Apple coconut crumble

Apple crumble is my absolute favourite dessert to make during the colder months. It’s so comforting, easy to make and it’s a great way to get an extra dose of nutrients after dinner. Serve it with a dollop of Greek yoghurt or a scoop of coconut ice-cream for an extra treat. It’s guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser. Enjoy!


Apple, macadamia & coconut crumble

Serves: 4


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup macadamias
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 apples, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup organic orange or apple juice
  • Greek yoghurt or coconut ice-cream, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  2. To make the crumble topping add rolled oats, shredded coconut, half of the macadamias, cinnamon, maple syrup and coconut oil to a food processor. Process until combined, it should stick together.
  3. Roughly chop the remaining macadamias and add to the crumble mix.
  4. Place chopped apple in a medium-sized ovenproof dish and pour orange or apple juice over apples.
  5. Spoon the crumble mixture over the apple and place the dish on a large baking tray. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the crumble topping is golden and apples are soft.
  6. Serve with Greek yoghurt or coconut ice-cream.

  • Why do you use apple juice/ orange juice I thought it was full of sugar?

    • Using a high-quality, organic and ideally, fresh, apple or orange juice is fine in small amounts. Feel free to omit it from the recipe if it causes you trouble!

  • Averill

    I have stumbled across your blog via Instagram and I cannot wait to try soo many of your recipes, amazing!!
    This one looks delicious!!
    Just wondering if you could recommend a substitute for orange/apple juice?


    • Hi Averill! You can just omit the orange/apple juice if you prefer – the apples may just be a little more crunchy.

  • Kelly Shannon

    This looks delicious! I am wanting to take advantage of the more seasonal fruits available in Southern California at the moment. Do you think the apples could easily be subbed for berries or stonefruit?

    • Beautiful! Crumbles are great for using up any seasonal fruit available – stonefruit and berries are perfect!

  • Lana

    Hi Jess,
    Massive fan of your recipes & blog!
    Really keen to make this!! Just wondering if you could omit the apple/orange juice or suggest an alternative without the sugar?
    Thanks, Averill x

    • Hey Averill!
      You can definitely omit the apple/orange juice, it just may not be as moist as a result. You could also try cooking the apples in a medium-sized pot with 1/2 cup of water, some orange zest and a teaspoon of vanilla extract until they are softened, and then continuing the recipe with the crumble etc. Good luck!

      • Averill

        Thanks so much for getting back to me. I made this dish on the weekend and just omitted the juice and it was delicious!! Will definitely be making it again! I will try your suggestion of boiling the apples in water first next time. Might make them even tastier! Thanks again 🙂
