Best with Organic Cooked Beets

Apple-Beet Crumble

Prep Time: 20 min // Cook Time: 40 min Servings: 4 to 6

What to do

  1. Add the sliced apples, butter, lemon juice, pure maple syrup, ground cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of sea salt to a saucepan and heat to medium-high. Cook covered, stirring occasionally, until juices are seeping out of the apples – about 8-10 minutes.
  2. Add the flour, vanilla extract, and chopped beets. Stir until everything is well combined and flour has dissolved.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly oil a 9-inch square or round baking dish (I used a 9 1/2 inch cast iron oval baking dish).
  4. Combine all of the ingredients for the crumble topping in a mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
  5. Transfer the apple-beet filling to the oiled baking dish, then evenly spread the crumble topping on top.
  6. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 40-50 minutes or until topping is golden-brown and crispy.
  7. Allow crumble to cool for 15 minutes before serving with your favorite ice cream!
