Suitable for beginners and accommodating various dietary preferences including vegan and gluten-free.


- 4-5 medium-sized apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats (gluten-free if needed)
- 1/2 cup almond flour (or all-purpose flour for non-gluten-free version)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup vegan butter (or regular butter if not vegan), softened
- Pinch of salt


1. Preheat your wood-fired oven to around 375°F (190°C).
2. In a mixing bowl, toss the sliced apples with lemon juice, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg until well coated. Transfer the apple mixture to a greased baking dish.
3. In another mixing bowl, combine the old-fashioned oats, almond flour, brown sugar, softened vegan butter, and a pinch of salt. Use your fingers or a fork to mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
4. Spread the oat mixture evenly over the apples in the baking dish, covering them completely.
5. Place the baking dish in the preheated wood-fired oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender.
6. Once cooked, remove the apple crumble from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
