We've put a high protein spin on a winter classic

Are you a big dessert fan? We sure are at Bulk HQ!

Come winter time one of our all-time favourites is the classic Apple Crumble. This treat, however, tends to be high carb, high fat and low protein.

So we've put a bit of a spin on the classic to make it every bulkers high protein dream!

Featuring tender, spiced apples and a crunchy granola nut topping, this is sure to become one of your go-to winter desserts.


For the apple filling:

  • 8 peels and sliced apples – we used granny smiths
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or essence
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon or 1 cinnamon quill

For the crumble:

  • 1 scoop (30g) Bulk Nutrients WPI, WPC, Protein Matrix+ or Thermowhey in Salted Caramel or Vanilla
  • 2 cups whole oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup almond slivers
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil – melted


  1. Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees celsius.
  2. Place apples in a pot with water and spices and stew until cooked through. Remove any pieces of spice like clove and cinnamon once cooked.
  3. While stewing the apples, make the crumble topping.
  4. Combine all crumble ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden, stirring on occasion.
  5. Place warm apple mix in a bowl and top with toasted crumble mix.
  6. This is delicious served with some lightly sweetened yogurt.
  7. Note: You can swap in other fruits, like berries, pears and stone fruits to suit.
