Healthy Vegan Apple Crumble

It’s autumn and who doesn’t love an apple crumble?! This recipe replaces butter with coconut oil so that is vegan and uses Xylitol instead of sugar. I’m not a fan of sweeteners, however, in this recipe I’ve used xylitol as it is very sweet so you need far less of it than sugar. However,I would not recommend consuming large amounts of it.
