This gluten free and vegan apple and blueberry crumble is perfect for the lazy baker.

What could be better than three decadent layers of shortbread, warm apple pie filling and crunchy streusel topping? I took components from my favorite apple crumble bars to bring you this unbelievably delicious apple blueberry crumble.

  • cornstarch – or tapioca flour
  • cinnamon
  • all purpose flour – gluten-free 1:1 or measure for measure if needed
  • cold vegan butter – I used Earth Balance

commonly asked questions

How do you keep crumble topping crunchy?

Correctly measuring your ingredients like the butter will help to ensure the crumble is crunchy rather than soggy. Add too much butter will result in a greasy and soggy topping.

What is the difference between streusel and crumb topping?

They are essentially the same thing. For me, I like to call it streusel when I add oats to the topping.
