Hey Sweet Friend:

Do you have an adorable little pumpkin (or 7) decorating your kitchen table? Same! They’re just so cute, I can’t help but display them all over this time of year.

But did you know that those pie pumpkins make for more than gorgeous fall décor? They happen to be DELISH! And there are tons of ways to enjoy them

Like in a Pumpkin Apple Crumble!

That’s right, apples don’t deserve to hog the stage. Pumpkin adds a delightful twist to this wonderful dessert.

Ready to give it a go? Heck yes! Let’s get cooking…

Why Add Pumpkin To Your Apple Crumble?

Jack-O-Lanterns are super fun, but pumpkins have so much more to offer! These delicious fruits are stock full of fiber, supporting your magnificent digestive system. They’re rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, including manganese, copper, potassium, and vitamins A, C, B6, E and K. Basically, a beautiful, nutritionally dense squash that deserves a spot on your plate. (source)

First impressions should be sweet, so we’re starting with dessert. Trust me, I’m full of good ideas 😉

Pumpkin Apple Crumble

Serving Size:
Approximately 10 Servings
1.25 Hours


  • 2 Cups of Baked Sugar Pumpkin (Also Known as Pie Pumpkins)
  • 2 Large Golden Delicious Apples (Red Delicious and Honeycrisp Work As Well)
  • Juice of Half a Lemon
  • 2 tsp of Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup of Maple Syrup
  • 2 Cups of Rolled, Gluten Free Oats
  • 1/2 Cup of Oat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup of Buckwheat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F
  2. Wash the pumpkin, cut around the stem, slice the pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds (save those for future treats!)
  3. Lay your pumpkin slices face down on a baking sheet greased with coconut oil
  4. Place it in the oven for approximately 20 minutes, depending on the size of your pumpkin. You’ll know it’s ready when you can easily pierce through it with a fork
  5. Once the pumpkin is ready, remove the skin and chop the flesh into cubes. I made them about an inch in size
  6. Keep the oven ready at 350°F
  7. In a medium sized bowl, combine the oats, oat flour, buckwheat flour and 1 tsp cinnamon and mix well
  8. Add the coconut oil and 3/4 cups of maple syrup (save the remaining 1/4 cup for later)
  9. Mix together until you have a crumbly blend
  10. Set the crumble aside
  11. Core and cube the apples
  12. In a separate, medium sized bowl mix the apples, pumpkin and 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  13. Add the cinnamon and lemon juice and mix well, until the fruits are well covered in syrup, lemon juice and spice
  14. Grease a large baking sheet with coconut oil
  15. Transfer the pumpkin, apple mix to the baking sheet and sprinkle the crumble on top
  16. Make sure it’s well mixed, so that you have a marvelous crumble to apple/pumpkin ratio
  17. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the top looks crispy
  18. Serve as is, with coconut whipped cream or homemade whipped cream (I used 1 Cup of Silk whipping cream with 3 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp of icing sugar and 1 tbsp of maple syrup. Whip until stiff peaks form)

Keep your pumpkin apple crumble and caramel refrigerated between eatings! I don’t imagine it will last very long.

Enjoy the goodness that pumpkin has to offer in this delicious twist on an old favourite.

    You know, it’s funny, but pumpkins are used so frequently as a decoration this time of year that people often forget they can eat them! They place them on the front porch or counter, then toss them in the trash once Halloween is over. A dessert like this is an excellent way to get more value from those pumpkins. It’s a habit I need to develop, as I tend to just throw them in the trash.
