- When selecting apples for the filling, choose ones that are sweet and crisp for better flavor.
- If you prefer a nut-free topping, you can leave out the pecans or substitute them with other nuts or seeds.
- For the apple filling, substitute honey for the brown sugar. Honey is a natural sweetener and can provide a richer flavor.
- For the crumble topping, substitute almond flour for all-purpose flour. Almond flour is gluten-free and provides a nutty flavor, which can bring an extra layer of flavor to the dish.
