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.

Filling:

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

Topping:

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.

  5. LOL! I'm up at an early hour with a puppy who needed to go outside! In my not-quite-awakeness I read the title to this post and thought, 'Hmm, apple streusel from Fiji? Didn't know they had apples there!' Then I suddenly realized I should read it again and it all made sense. Maybe I should go back to bed! Sounds delicious - and if I ever go to Fiji maybe I'll take some along. ~Adrienne~
