How was it created and who loves it?
Like many of us, Eileen is always looking for something sweet to satisfy her cravings. She loves apples, cinnamon & nuts. Playing around with those ingredients gave her Eileen’s Spiced Vegan Apple Compote Crumble recipe

To use Eileen’s Spiced Vegan Apple Compote Crumble recipesimply follow steps 1-6 in the recipe. Rather than removing the apples from the oven after 30 minutes, bake for a total of 45 minutes. Then, simply turn off the oven and cover the baked compote mixture with a lid or a piece of foil. Leave the compote in the cooling oven, to allow all the flavors to become even richer.
This compote can be enjoyed with crushed pecans as a snack. Mix it with your choice of plant-based yoghurt, or splodge on top of warm oatmeal for a filling breakfast.
If you don’t have apples on hand, Eileen also recommends using pears for this Spiced Compote Crumble. The texture is likely to be more juicy and the flavour will have a different, less earthy tone. You can even mix through whatever berries you have, whether fresh or frozen. Blueberries, blackberries and even raspberries would all work well here.
Steel cut oats
Dried, unsweetened cranberries
