Apple, Macadamia & 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 or 360°F.
  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!

    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.

    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!

    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!

        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 🙂
