Over the course of the past week or so I have shown my absolute adoration of everything pumpkin, but I thought that it was about time that I swapped over to another seasonal favorite, the apple! Nothing else can evoke the warm and fuzzy at home feeling that a perfectly baked apple crumble can offer.
Last year, I found a really delicious version of apple crumble from Epicurious, the only problem for me was the apple to crumble ratio and the fact that I have a slight obsession with the pairing of apples and ginger that their version didn't satisfy.
Combining apple and ginger in this crumble takes it to another level.
A few days ago Trader Joe's was selling every variety of apple imaginable by the peck and I just had to get my hands on a bag of Rome apples!I couldn't wait to try to gingerfy (yes I know that isn't a real word) last year's apple crumble. The results were pretty amazing if I do say so myself. I paired these with a heaping scoop of dairy free vanilla bean coconut ice cream, and they really were drool worthy. My only suggestion for these is to make a double batch so that everyone has seconds.

What are the health benefits of apples?
The apple, especially with the skin left on, is packed with necessary nutrients that reduce risks of heart disease and diabetes and improve gut heath. The high fiber and water content in apples can also help with weight loss because they are so filling.
