Gluten Free: Peanut Butter, Apple & Blackberry Crumble
Gluten free: Peanut Butter, Apple and Blackberry Crumble. A cold weather dish of sweet soft apples and blackberries with a crunchy oaty topping flavoured with peanut butter
And just like that summer is over. The leaves on the trees are changing their colour scheme and suddenly the nighttime darkness is with us before we’ve even changed into our pyjamas and worked out our Netflix viewing schedule.
Although I love sunny summertime lazy days at our beach hut which can start from sunrise and finish at sunset, autumn evenings at our seaside home snuggled up the sofa with fire lit and TV on are a delicious treat. I can ramp this up by having a bowl of a warming pudding such as this crumble on my knee and I feel all is good with the world.
There is something about crumbles that make us feel cosy and settled; perhaps it’s a locked away childhood memory or the need to eat warm foods to keep the cold outside at bay. Either way the only question in my mind is cream or custard? Which are you?
A deliciously autumnal dessert flavoured with sweet soft apples and juicy blackberries and topped with a crunchy topping enhanced with peanut butter.
Peanut Butter Apple and Blackberry Crumble
100g gluten free flour
50g butter, chilled and chopped very small
2 tablespoons peanut butter
100g granulated sugar
1kg cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
2 tablespoons Demerara sugar – to finish#
Preheat oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4/350°F.
Make the crumble topping by placing everything together in a large bowl and rub together with your fingers until clumps start to form. You want the mix lumpy and not fine.
Place the prepared fruit in a baking dish and cover with the topping. Sprinkle over the last 2 tablespoons of Demerara sugar over the final dish for an extra crunchy finish and bake for 45 minutes.
Note: Should you wish to make without gluten free flour simply reduce the cooking time by 10 minutes to 30 minutes and turn down heat to 180 degrees.

Linking up with these great round ups:
Oh yum!! Ive been gluten free for two years now and miss so many puddings, this looks amazing!
Thanks, I have only recently gone GF and it’s been a lot easier than I thought. Luckily I am not so intolerant that I have to be super careful but I have found it’s been great for my health. Also, seriously some GF products are just so awful aren’t they!!!
Yummy! I adore crumble – perfect treat for when the weather is cold and wet outside 🙂 x
Oh yes indeed Yvonne, I agree. I love it for breakfast the next day! Weekend goals!
That looks scrumptious! Yummy food indeed!
Thanks Mary xx
Ooh yum, my son would love this, I might have to try and be creative in the kitchen and give it a go.
Whoo this looks so yummy. My Daughter has to eat gluten-free and I bet she would love this too 🙂
Thanks Claire. I hope your daughter does like it. Since I’ve been gf I’ve tried out recipes that taste good so we all can have them as I’ve found gf products are not always tasty!!
My kids would love this, what a great idea.
This looks delicious! Although every time I hear the word gluten-free, Scott disick comes to mind, screaming does ANYBODY know what gluten is haha! – my son loves pies! Have to try it out for him!
You made it look so easy to prepare. Thanks for sharing, I will be tweaking because I don’t use butter and processed sugar but overall, I think it will taste good because of the fruits you have chosen to use.
This looks fantastic, I would not have thought of adding peanut butter to a traditional desert but it makes it sound even more appealing! I may have to try this one in the future! 🙂
This is something not only I would like but that my children would thoroughly enjoy.
Thanks for the gluten free recipe. We love cobblers and crumbles. Berries make me feel like I’m eating very healthy. Thanks for sharing.
I never cook apple crumble before. I will give it a try, I bet the taste is so yummy.
I love crumbles! We have an apple tree in our garden so have eaten so much apple crumble over the last month!
Never thought to add peanut butter to apple and blackberry crumble – sounds yummy
Oh this sounds so yummy, and look very tasty! I am off to pin it
I am a huge lover of Crumble – this is my go-to dessert all year round for family reunion ^^ Never thought of adding PB to it. Now the next one will definitely have some 🙂
Yes it’s a real winner with peanut butter added Bea. Mind you even without, it’s always a gread family feeder x
This recipe sounds delicious.
Would it be bad to have apple crumble for breakfast? All the fruit in it, makes it seem so healthy and a breakfast option.
Odette, not at all! Crumble for breakfast is pure joy x
Apple crumble, especially home made, brings back a lot of childhood memories for me of making the crumble with my Gran, one of the few memories I have, but add Peanut butter and I am wanting to try your way instead x
Oh yes Rachel, the best memories x
Wow, I’d never think to put peanut butter with a crumble. This sounds so delicious! We’re going to pick some blackberries and try it with apples and peanut butter. 🙂 x
Chloe, it adds such a rich flavour that you must try. We love it!
I’ve never thought of adding peanut butter to crumble, what a great way to get extra crunch!
This looks like an easy recipe – I must try it! I’m not totally gluten-free but when i can I chose gluten free items. Makes my life easier, lol
Great recipe. Something that I would love to try with my kids.
So yummy! and healthy too. I guess my daughter would surely love it. I’ll try for sure. Thanks for sharing!
This looks so cosy and delicious. I’d not thought of putting peanut butter in a crumble topping, but in my opion peanut butter makes everything better!x
I agree, peanut butter everything. I love it straight out of the jar! Elinor x
Crumble is there anyone who doesn’t love it? Blackberry and apple is one of my favourite too preferably smothered with lots of custard. I like the idea of adding peanut butter to the crumble.
I also love autumn by the seaside on a good day it has such wonderful light.
Thank you for linking to #CookBlogShare
Yes Jacqui, autumn by the sea is lovely. The rain and throw it down or the sun can shine – all are good!
Yum! Never thought of adding peanut butter. Pinning for when my blackberries are ripe!
Is there something else you can replace the peanut butter with? My bf is allergic to peanut butter, hence I will need to find something else to change to ~ 🙁
There is almond butter if you can have it. Also you could add extra butter instead of the peanut butter and drizzle over maple syrup? Oh I best stop as I’m getting hungry!! Elinor x
You put peanut butter in a crumble?!?!?! 😮😮😮😮 You are my hero! lol I am so making this as soon as I pop down to the pick your own!
Those flavoured peanut butters would also work. Can you imagine maple peanut butter! Elinor x
Woah! This looks and sounds incredible…I love apple crumble, but the addition of peanut butter must take it to a whole other level – must try that!! Eb x
This looks totally delicious. I will have to make this for my family soon, they would love this.
Oh, Elinor, this combination of Peanut Butter, Apple and Blackberry in a crumble sounds amazing!
Thanks Emma. Our boys have requested this again so it’s got to be good!
I love apple crumble but I adore the addition of peanut butter in this recipe x #CookBlogShare
What a great idea to include peanut butter in the crumble mix Elinor that’s something I’ll be trying! We just love crumble – and for us it has to be served with custard 😀 #CookBlogShare
This sounds like a great combination. I am hoping we get a beach hut very soon – would love just sitting there, drinking cold cocktails and eating some simple food.
This looks bloody lovely!!!!! Peanut butter in a crumble is a master stroke! Thanks so much for hooking up with Simple and in Season this month 🙂
This Gluten-free Peanut Butter Apple and Blackberry Crumble looks so tasty and delicious. Wanna try this recipe soon. This is really perfect for autumn.
I love Fall. It’s probably because I start seeing (AND EATING )more comfort food like this. My officemate brings a cinnamon-y crumble in and it is delicious. But peanut butter in a crumble, I have never had that! This looks yummy!
Elinor, your photos are absolutely beautiful! I love the atmosphere in them and the autumn tones you went for. I am not a fan of autumn, simply because it means summer has gone (nooooooo). On the other hand, I love autumnal food, crumbles, warming dishes and fluffy blankets 🙂 Your crumble looks and sounds absolutely delicious, and I am a big fan of Pip & Nut (I carry sachets of the nut butters around!). xxx Thanks for joining in with #FreeFromFridays.
Thank you Mel. That made me swoon. I love thinking about making images that make you want to jump in the picture and dig in! X
