An easy apple crumble with minimal ingredients, a crispy top and gooey apple bottom. Perfect dessert or fun breakfast option for those that need a change up.



For apples

  • 4 apples
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder

For crumble topping

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp almond flour or all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp corn starch


  1. Set oven to 350F. Chop all apples into bite size pieces, making sure to discard cores. In a bowl combine apples, corn starch, lemon juice, pinch of salt and pumpkin pie spice.
  2. Toss together with clean hands and place apples at the bottom of a baking dish.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine all oat crumble ingredients and stir to combine using a fork. It's okay to see it clump, just make sure peanut butter is spread out as much between the oats as you can.
  4. With hands, evenly spread oat mixture over apples.
  5. Take baking tray and place in the oven for 45-5- minutes to allow apples to release moisture and fully soften. Remove from oven and allow to slightly cool before digging in.


  • You can replace the almond flour with regular flour. 
  • Peanut butter can be subbed with other nut butters, or made allergy friendly by replacing nut butter with seed butters like sunflower seed butter or tahini. 
  • You can under bake this to get a cereal consistency which is really yummy. Just bake for 30 minutes instead of the full time recommended above.
