For the Apple Filling

  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • In a saucepan, coat the apples in the arrowroot starch.
  • Place on stovetop and set to medium heat.
  • After one minute, mix in cinnamon and sugar. Toss again until evenly coated. Let cook for another minute.
  • Pour water over the entire thing. Mix and let it simmer WITH a lid on.
  • After cooking for 5 minutes, take off the heat. Mix in lemon juice and set aside while preparing the dough.

For the Crumbs

  • Combine oil, cashew butter and syrup in a small bowl with the back of a fork.
  • Add in flours and cinnamon and continue to combine with back of fork.
  • This will be dry and crumbly but will form together if squeezed in the palm of your hand.

For the Cake

  • Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk together all wet ingredients in a separate small bowl and pour into the dry ingredients.
  • Whisk everything together until all lumps are gone and a smooth batter is achieved.


  • Grease the bottom and sides of an 8” skillet (an 8” cake pan will work too) with coconut oil.
  • Pour half the cake batter into skillet and spread it so it fills the pan to its sides.
  • Pour all of the apple mixture on top of that, making an even layer that covers the cake batter.
  • Pour the rest of the cake batter over the apple layer, filling the skillet to the top.
  • Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the whole top, breaking the pieces up with your fingers as you sprinkle.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • *Optional* Drizzle with roasted coconut butter for an extra boost of flavor!
  • Serve warm and enjoy!
