Autumnal Apple Crumble
I decided to fly through the air and live in the sunlight and enjoy life as much as I could. - Evel Knievel
The house is quiet. A heavy, slow and calm breathing breaks the silence. Zu is tired from its morning stroll and sleeps nearby, while Darwin, at the window, stares the sky pretty much like a philosopher.
The fragrance in the air hints to the lavender flowers that I gathered earlier. Time rolls by in its silent and slowly endless way. November has always this absolute stillness.
There is nothing like the comforts of a warm crumble in these crispy autumn days; curl up in the sofa with a blanket and watch a good movie; catching up some reading and take long walks with cold & soft breeze and crunchy underfoot.
1 cup of Walnuts
½ cup Raisins
½ Lemon juice
6 tbsp Cinnamon
3 tbsp Maple Syrup
2 cup Old Fashioned Oats
½ cup Muscovado Sugar
5-6 tbsp Coconut Oil
Preheat oven to 180⁰C. In a medium bowl, combine all oats, sugar and coconut oil (melted) and stir well. Set aside.
Peel and cut the apple in little chunks. Add the lemon juice and cinnamon. Mix the apple, walnuts (chopped) and the raisins with maple syrup. Spread the oat mixture on the top and cover loosely with a piece of tin foil.
Bake for about 35-40 minutes until the topping golden brown.
