Healthy, Vegan-Friendly Spiced Cinnamon Chai Apple Crumble Recipe

Apple picking season is in full swing, and fall baking has officially begun! We’re already craving our favorite fall apple orchard goodies -- apple pie, apple crumble, apple tarts, apple crisp, baked apples, mulled apple cider… the list goes on, but we decided to kick things off with this warm chai-spiced apple crumble recipe. That’s right -- we put together a healthy version of your favorite fall dessert, topped with a coconut sugar streusel made with our very own Cinnamon Chai gr8nola and spiced with a delicious blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cardamom.

This recipe is free of dairy, soy and refined sugars, and made only with clean, all-natural ingredients. We topped ours with a generous scoop of dairy-free vanilla coconut milk yogurt to make this a plant-based, vegan-friendly bowl of fall goodness.
