Try This Delicious Tea-Infused Apple Crumble Recipe

November 07, 2020

baked apple crumble

 

Nothing says autumn like the flavors and aromas of apple and cinnamon. So we came up with a tea-infused twist on a classic fall favorite - apple crumble! If you've been following this blog for a while, you will know that I am obsessed with creating food and drinks that not only tastes great, but are also ultra-healthy for you. Because you only get one body, it's so important to nourish it and treat it well, even during the holiday season.

Healthy kitchen tip: Even if you don't normally buy organic, you should always buy organic apples, because conventionally grown apples are heavily sprayed with pesticides. 

We wanted to add tea to this recipe, so we chose Cranberry Apple Tart to add an extra boost of antioxidants and vitamin C, as well as a kick of tartness to complement the sweetness of the apples.

This ingredients in the recipe are loaded with health benefits: it's high in fiber, and supports brain health, heart health, sugar balance, and healthy cholesterol levels. This yummy recipe is vegan, paleo, and gluten-free, with zero refined sugar or flour. It tastes great, and you can feel good about serving it to your family.

 

 

Let's get started!

For the apple filling, you will need:

  • 6 medium organic honeycrisp apples 
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons freshly brewed strong Cranberry Apple Tart tea  
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (my favorite kind of culinary cinnamon is Vietnamese cinnamon, which is more aromatic, sweet and flavorful than other types of cinnamon)

For the crumble, you will need:

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (I always use "good" salt - Himalayan pink salt, or Celtic sea salt is the best)
  • 1/4 cup melted virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup

To prepare:

Preheat your oven to 350F. 

Brew a strong cup of Cranberry Apple Tart by steeping four teaspoons of the tea in one cup of hot water for five minutes. Strain, and set aside.

Peel, core, and dice the apples, and place into a large mixing bowl. Mix in the tea, cinnamon, and maple syrup, and stir well. Pour apples into an 8x8 baking pan that's been greased with coconut oil, or you can pour the apples into individual greased pie molds. 

In a clean mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, pecans, cinnamon, salt, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil. Pour the crumble mixture over the apples, and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, cover loosely with foil, and bake for another 20 minutes. 

Try it and let us know what you think.

Enjoy!

Hey Tea Lover: If You're Drinking Tea From A Teabag, You Might Be Consuming Thousands Of Plastic Particles With Every Cup

Did you know... Many tea companies sell their tea in teabags that are made with plastic? I hate to say it, but it's true. A recent study conducted in 2019 showed that many of the teabags made by some of the most popular brands contain plastic. The study showed that one teabag of tea steeped at 95C (203F) released “approximately 11.6 billion microplastics and 3.1 billion nanoplastics into a single cup of the beverage.” This is a much higher level of plastic being ingested than what you are exposed to in other foods.
