Apple Crunch Crumble

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Elise and family

I love this dish for dessert, fresh and hot, topped with vanilla soymilk or ice cream (alone it is only medium sweet). Or for breakfast. Or for a snack after a long walk. Mmmmmm!

Served with plain rice milk for a good snack. I used gala apples and enjoyed how the apples were chopped not just sliced. I used freshly squeezed lemon juice, canola oil in replacement of butter though I know butter would be better. I made this gluten free using gluten free oats and Recipe #256259 using all white rice flour and tapioca starch. I replaced the pecans with walnuts and used a demerara dark brown sugar & sea salt. I think it would have been better a little less dark golden brown.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Place butter in dish at room temperature to soften.
  3. Chop apples. Place bite-size pieces in 8 inch square or round baking dish, stirring in the lemon juice as you go, to keep them from browning.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix flour, oatmeal, sugar, salt and spices. Smush in the butter until everything is well-mixed. Add nuts and mix some more.
  5. Sprinkle topping evenly over apples (do not mix them together - the flour mixture goes on top of the apple pieces).
  6. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes, or until topping is dark golden brown.
  7. Let cool somewhat before serving, as the juices get bubbly hot in the oven. Enjoy!
