Healthy apple crumble, no added sugar, no gluten

My toddler is always asking for cookies. No idea why, because we never have any. On those occasions when she gets really pushy, I try to make something yummy and healthy like this apple crumble.
The apples are obviously just apples. The crumble is a bunch of raw super food (at least that is what they are calling it here) tied together with real butter.
It's really good and leftovers are great for breakfast, mixed with some yoghurt.

(Be sure to buy products that are truly gluten free if this is important. Products like oatmeal are of themselves gluten free but the machines they are processed on are often not. Check the package to be sure!)

Healthy apple crumble

Makes 4 to 6 servings


8 or more sweet apples
2 tablespoons cocoa nibs
2 tablespoons hemp seed
2 tablespoons flax seed
5 tablespoons oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 gooey dates 
2 to 3 tablespoons butter

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius (375 fahrenheit)
Take a small baking dish and butter the inside.
Cut the apples into cubes and distribute them over the dish.

Mix the dry ingredients (no dates) in a food processor until it turns into a flour like substance.
Put the dates in and mix well.
Add the butter until it just starts to clump.

Mix the crumble by hand until you have nice size clumps.
Distribute the crumble over the apples.
Bake for 20 minutes then add a loosely tented foil over the top.
Bake for another 40 minutes or until apples are soft and just a bit mushy.
