  1. In a large saucepan or frying pan, add 4 tablespoons of coconut oil, your sliced apples, sliced fennel, chopped ginger, and salt.
  2. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until the apples and fennel start to soften, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Add coconut milk, apple pie spice, vanilla, and sweetener (if you're using any), and stir to combine.
  4. Reduce heat to low. Gently simmer until the apples and fennel are completely soft, about another 10 minutes or so.
  5. If your apples have cooked out a lot of pectin, you may not need to add any arrowroot. If the filling is still rather thin, sprinkle the arrowroot powder over the apple mixture and stir in. Remove from heat.
  6. Pour the apple mixture into a glass pie pan, casserole dish, or your pie crust and top with your crumble topping.
  7. Bake at 325 for 30 minutes, or until the pie is bubbling. If the top of the crumble starts to get too dark, place a piece of parchment paper over the top to keep it from getting too brown.
  8. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!
