Apple Crumble

I bought about 5 pounds of apples from the market last weekend and a few days into the week I realized as much as I loooove apples, I wasn’t going to be able to get through them before they over-ripened… thus – apple crumble idea was born!

Step 1: Wash & peel your apples; doesn’t have to be perfect šŸ™‚

Step 2: Cut the apples into cubes and place them in a pot to cook for about 30 min. To the pot, add 2 tablespoons of butter, nutmeg, cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract

Step 3: After about 25 min of cooking, add a few tablespoons of honey to the apples. Stir and take off the heat after a few min

Step 4: Spoon the apples into ceramics OR you can place them all in one baking dish Ā Ā Ā

Step 5: Next is your crumble topping. Cut up frozen (or very cold) butter. It’s very important the butter is cold otherwise it won’t mix properly to form the crumble. Side note — I always keep my butter in the freezer because I buy it in bulk and use it only when baking, which is rarely. The freezer keeps the butter fresh and prevents it from getting that fridge burn taste

Step 6: To the butter add two packets of instantĀ oatmeal (I used a strawberry flavor which added even more flavor) but you can use whatever flavor you have or regular rolled oats. Also add chopped almonds, dash of vanilla extract, & drizzle of honey

Step 7: Add a few tablespoons of the crumble to each cup of apples. Place in the oven to bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. The butter belts, the oats will cook, and the almonds toast up.. Mmm mm! The top tastes just like a crunchy oatmeal cookie while the applesĀ develop a sweet yet semi tart, fruity flavor! Bon appetite!
