It's likely you have some version of this in your wheelhouse, but as the Natural Maker Mom I've tried to optimize the efficiency with which you'll have a delicious treat ready to serve and delight. Time Specs: 14 minute prep time, 35 minute bake time My Aunt K shared this recipe with me that I've converted for the gluten-free, vegan among us. I've also cut the sugar and jam load by half. The flavor stays, but the higher sugar content goes. You should also feel free to substitute with regular flour and fat as you wish. Here's the ingredient list and time breakdown for the time-strapped

chef. You'll need these ingredients:gluten free vegan razzle apple streusel ingredients

  5. From bowl, spoon approximately 1/3 streusel (dough) into bottom of pan and press into corners. (.5 min)

  7. While the streusel crust is baking, peel and thinly slice apples. Place in bowl. Spoon in jam, sprinkle in cinnamon and nutmeg and combine. (15 min. It won't really take you this long so while you're waiting clean your prep area and drink a glass of water to hydrate.)
  8. When the timer rings, remove the streusel crust from oven carefully (so you don't burn yourself) and spoon the fruit mixture into the pan. Top fruit with remaining streusel and sprinkle with a little more cinnamon if you like. (1 min)
