Spiced Crumble Stuffed Apples

The perfect comforting dessert for a winter's day, this apple crumble is made directly in the apples and deliciously spiced with mixed spices and ground ginger.


  • No ground almonds? Use finely chopped pumpkin seeds instead. Just add them to a blender and pulse blend until finely chopped. 
  • Vegan? Use vegan butter instead. 
  • Other spices? Try ground nutmeg and/or ground cinnamon.
