Method (for the crumble):
Combine the oats, hazelnuts and cinnamon in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and pour in the syrup and melted butter. Using a wooden spoon, combine together.

Method (for the filling):

Combine all the filling ingredients together in a bowl until the apples are completely covered.

Place the covered apple in a pre-greased baking dish. Cover with the topping and place in an oven pre-heated to 180C for one hour.

Once cooked, serve with a dollop of your favourite dairy-free yoghurt or cashew cream.

It is composed of fructo-oligosaccharides, inulin and a small amount of glucose and fructose. It’s a much better alternative to granulated white sugar, without effecting the flavour. You can read more about sugar substitutes on my blog here.

Sugar Safe Tips:
Remember that maple syrup has a high fructose content so keep an eye on your sugar/fructose intake for the day and try to limit it to less than 30g (added sugar/fructose).
