Vegan Breakfast Apple Crumble

Hi friends!

We recently visited an apple orchard so naturally I had to make my apple crumble! The smell of cinnamon and apples is something that just makes me so happy.

When I stopped having dairy, I thought that was the end of my baking days…but then I discovered Earth Balance spreads.  They taste SO good and literally taste like butter in baking, on popcorn, on toast etc.  I’d still use it even if I wasn’t dairy free.  You can also substitute coconut oil or regular unsalted butter in this recipe.

I had this for breakfast one day and it was such a nice treat! Lightly sweetened with maple syrup so no refined sugar in this recipe and no flour either! In my opinion, it just makes the crumble goopy so I like to just put my topping on the top.  Crunchy and nutty – So tasty!

I’d love for you to try my recipe! Please tag me on Facebook and Instagram @Balancingandie so I can see your lovely creations! Also, don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss notifications of new posts! Pinky promise no spam 🙂 ever!




Vegan Breakfast Apple Crumble

Yield: 1 nine inch pie plate

Vegan Breakfast Apple Crumble


  • 2 large apples quartered and peeled and sliced finely (I used ambrosia)
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats (gf)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut shreds (opt.)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter melted (earth balance)
  • 1/4 tsp all spice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (sub pecans or almonds)
    Toppings (optional):
  • Goji berries
  • coconut yogurt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Peel and slice apples thinly then layer apples in your pie dish or other glass pan. If using a metal pan, lightly grease with some extra vegan butter.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl and sprinkle on top.
  4. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes until apples are slightly soft or to your preference.
  5. Top with a few goji berries and some coconut yogurt and enjoy immediately


Use gluten free oats if this is necessary for you. Coconut oil or regular unsalted butter can be substituted for earth balance, which is a brand of vegan butter.
