Apple Oat Crumble

Fruit crumbles are like the epitome of any season. You take what is sweet, ripe, and locally grown, add a buttery sugary topping and bake the fruit until it’s warmed through and soft. Then you eat it straight up by the spoonful! Whoa! Oh sure, you can get wild and throw a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce on top. Who am I to crush your creativity? The point is, there is a lot of good to be had… and by golly let’s have it!

As organic as possible:

1 pat of butter for greasing (about 1/2 Tbsp)

5 tart Apples, such as Granny Smith

1 Tbsp Flour

2 Tbsp Brown sugar

2 Tbsp rolled Oats

1/4 tsp Cinnamon

Pinch of salt

 

Topping:

3/4 cup Flour

1/2 cup rolled Oats

1/2 cup Sugar

1/2 cup Brown sugar

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 cup cold Butter (1 stick), cut into cubes.

 

Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a med-small baking dish (about 9×9) with a thin layer of butter, set aside.

  1. Apple crumble was the very first thing I ever learned to make as a child in my mother’s kitchen. The version I normally make (the usual in England) is flour, butter and sugar BUT I am a slave to oats (in fact its quite possible I was a horse in a previous life) and I love the sound and look of this so I am certainly going to make it – thank you so much!

    1. My mother does a flour, sugar, and butter topping on her version of apple pie. I love it too! I also appreciate oats, so I’ve added them! No regrets! I’m thinking raisins might be a fun addition as well… thanks Fiona! 😊
