Fuji Apple Streusel
With a large Fuji apple orchard next door, we have an abundance of Fuji's available each fall. Their natural 'water core' defines them as one of the best! Great flavor, great texture, and perfect sweetness when picked ripe off the tree. Here's a recipe that I've developed for a sweet and delicious vegan and gluten-free apple streusel.
6 - 8 Fuji apples, peeled and sliced
1/3 - 1/2 cup sugar (or sweetener of choice)
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
4 Tbsp. flour (gluten-free if necessary)
6 Tbsp. oil
2 tsp. ground cloves
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 cup walnuts, chopped
Peel and dice apples. Mix with sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Place in a baking dish.
In another bowl, mix together brown sugar, gluten-free flour, oil, cloves, cinnamon, and walnuts. Then sprinkle over apple mixture and gently press into place.
Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees F.
