Apple Crumble Slice

My spark of inspriation for this DELICIOUS recipe comes from three individuals…

Brenda Janschek - Apple Crumble Slice

1) Mamacino who posted a recipe for Apricot, Almond and Oat Slice on her gorgeous blog, which itself was inspired by…

2) Jude Blereau’s recipe from Wholefoods for the Family, and…

3) My son who 9yrs old at the time, suggested that using apple instead of apricot just might actually make it taste like apple crumble AND that if I left out the nuts we could put it in the school lunchboxes.

When you are open to it, inspiration is everywhere!

I would also like to recommend this recipe, to take to picnics, or to have for dessert with a lovely helping of thick, rich cream!

    Hi Brenda, I’ve made this apple crumble slice a couple of times and really enjoy it. I wondered what apples you use when you make it?
    I’ve used pink ladies as we always have them at home but thought there could be a better variety you could recommend.
    Many thanks,
    Pru

      Hi Pru, I always use Granny Smith when cooking apples. So glad you are enjoying it!

    I’m looking forward to trying this Brenda! Is the sugar integral to the structure or could I omit/reduce it?

    Hi just wondering if this recipe works with wholemeal flour and raw sugar instead? Thanks
