Apple Crumble

The fall brings brisk weather, beautiful leaves and crunchy APPLES.  We made this last night as a quick dessert for dinner with friends and had the leftovers today with some oatmeal for breakfast.

This got thrown together at the last minute, so please bear with the haphazard directions.  You can’t go wrong with a crumble!

Preheat your oven to 350F.  Chop up two apples (if you have 3, go for it), sprinkle lemon juice over the pieces and throw in a pie dish.  Mix together about a 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour, a pinch of salt, a generous handful of brown sugar, a teaspoon or two of honey (or sugar) and a whole bunch of oats – probably 3/4 cup.  Take 4 (or more) tablespoons of butter and massage into the flour mixture until everything is crumbly.  Put on top of apples, add some maple syrup or other syrup on top of the whole mess and bake at 350F for about 40-45 minutes.  Serve warm!

    I make an apple crisp for one by mixing a little melted margarine with oats, sugar, and cinnamon, then topping it onto a diced apple and baking in a small Pyrex bowl for about 1/2 hour at 350. It also works deliciously with other fruits, like pears, cherries, and berries, though bananas turned out to be a mushy, overly sweet mess. A packet of instant oatmeal works, though I usually have plain rolled oats. It can even be microwaved if you’re desperate. 😉

  2. […] a little vanilla ice cream wouldn’t fix.  I used a modification of this recipe I found on  They have some pretty good vegetarian recipes on that site.  Not always “healthy” […]
