“My way of showing love to loved one’s is by filling their tummies with good food and it’s always a great way to show my mother she did a great job raising me, because I’ll be able to nourish and treat my own family one day with only the best ingredients from Faithful to Nature.
I baked her favourite dessert, apple crumble pie, with a twist of vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar-free. If you want to trim on the calories even more half the base and crumble ingredients and only top the apples with a crumble with no base.”

Crumble & base

- Press half of the dough into a sprayed tart tin and put in the oven for 15 minutes or until dry.
- Roll the other half of the dough into a ball and wrap in cling wrap or put in a container with a lit in the freezer while the base is baking.
- Start with the filling.
- In a saucepan, heat up the apple pieces together with everything else and a little bit of hot water so the apples don’t stick or burn to the surface. Cook until soft.
- After the base has baked brush the surface with a little syrup or apricot jam.
- Put the filling onto the base. Grate the half-frozen dough on top until apples are covered.
- Put the pie back into oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
