1 tbsp of dairy free butter

3 tbsp of coconut sugar (Use erythritol, stevia or sucralose for a low carb option)

  5. Reduce the heat and gently simmer the apples for 10 minutes, stirring thoroughout so nothing sticks to the bottom.
  6. Once cooked down drain off any excess liquid in a colander
  7. Toss the apples into a heat proof pyrex or pie dish
  8. Prepare the topping by adding all of the listed ingredients into a medium sized bowl

  10. Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly all over the stewed apples
  11. Baking in the oven for about 10 minutes or until slightly golden brown
