The dessert features homemade apple compote, served in layers with whipped cream and a crunchy homemade granola topping.
It's simple, made with real ingredients, and the perfect after-dinner treat for the holidays.

What you'll need

Makes 6-8 serves.
Ingredients for the compote:
  • 1 kg red apples
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 50g sugar (or more to taste)
  • optional: a dash of vanilla extract
Ingredients for the granola:
  • 100g hazelnuts or almonds
  • 100g rolled oats
  • 50g maple syrup
  • 50g salted butter (or coconut oil for a vegan option)
Ingredients for serving:
  • 1 cup whipping cream (alternatively, coconut yoghurt for a vegan option)

How to make it

Method:
  1. Peel and dice apples. Add to a saucepan with the water, cinnamon and sugar. Simmer for 20 minutes, semi-covered, until apples are tender.
  2. Mash the apples using a potato masher. Place in the fridge to cool.
  3. Roughly chop hazelnuts. Add to a frypan with butter, syrup, oats and a pinch of salt. Toast on low-medium heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden. Remove to a shallow tray to cool.
  4. Whip cream (or use coconut yoghurt for a vegan version).
  5. Assemble the dessert; add a layer of apple sauce, then hazelnut crumble, and top with cream/yoghurt.
