  • 1 ½ cups white spelt flour
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup


  • 2 pounds Granny Smith (about 5 medium, peeled, cored, and sliced)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon spelt flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Pinch sea salt

Oat Crumble

  • ¾ cup white spelt flour
  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Caramel Sauce


For the Crust

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with a circle of parchment paper and lightly grease the sides.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork to stir together the spelt flour and sea salt. Then, stir/mash in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup until thoroughly combined.
  • Transfer the dough to the lined pan and use your fingers to press it evenly into the base. Use a fork to poke holes in the surface to allow the crust to vent.
  • Bake for 12 to 16 minutes, or until very light golden in color. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Leave the oven on.

For the Filling

  • Add the apples, maple syrup, spelt flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt to a large mixing bowl and toss to coat.
  • Spoon the apple filling over the slightly cooled crust, drizzling any residual liquid over top.

For the Oat Crumble

  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the spelt flour, rolled oats, coconut oil, maple syrup, and sea salt until combined.
  • Glob (I know, very proper term) the "crumble" over the apple layer.
  • Place the springform pan on a large baking tray (this will catch any drippings from the pan). Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, or until the crumble topping is light golden brown and feels crisp to the touch, and the apple filling is bubbling.
  • Let cool slightly.
  • Slice and serve with generous drizzles of the caramel.
