Apple Crumb Cake in a Jar

a quick and delicious dessert with a protein kick

By: Anne-Sophie Hoffman
What do you get when you put apples and cinnamon together? A warming wintry classic, that’s what. Whether it’s an apple crumble cake or a freshly baked apple cake with streusel and gobs of whipped cream on top. But who says this treat should be confined to the winter? We’ve taken a family recipe and turned it into an airy-light, high-protein spoonful of goodness. The best part? You can keep the oven switched off! This apple crumble is sure to be your new no-bake favorite. We’ve used our Vegan Protein Cookies for the base and refined them with a fresh and zingy lemon cream, plus a heavenly-sweet apple compote. Our apple crumble cake recipe is quick to make and super moist, for a whiff of comfort any time of year.


  • Ingredients:
    40 g apples (cubed), 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp water, 1 tsp , 0.5 tsp cinnamon, 1 pinch salt
    First, make the filling for the apple crumble cake. Put all the ingredients except the apples into a pot and bring to a boil. Then add the cubed apples. Simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside the apple filling in a bowl to cool.
  • Ingredients:
    50 g
    Now it's time to make the crust and the topping. Crumble the Protein Cookie with your hands and put ¾ of it into the glass you'll be using.
  • Ingredients:
    50 g quark or yogurt, 0.5 tsp lemon juice, 0.5 tsp , 1 tsp Vegan Protein Vanilla, lemon zest
    Put all the ingredients for the lemon cream into a bowl and stir well.
  • Once the apple-cinnamon filling has cooled, spoon 2/3 of it onto the crumble base. Then spread 2/3 of the lemon cream over it.
  • Repeat again to make layers.
  • Garnish the vegan apple crumble cake with the rest of the protein crumble, a dash of lemon zest and a dusting of cinnamon.
  • Enjoy!
