Apple Crumble topping recipe:

The Apple Crumble topping recipe was made with oats as it’s base instead of flour to keep it healthy and nutritious. Technically some will call this an apple crisp!

3⁄4 cup old-fashioned oats
1⁄4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 Tbsp maple syrup
1 1⁄2 Tbsp coconut oil

Combine together the oats, walnuts, cinnamon, maple syrup, and coconut oil in a bowl and mix well.

DO YOU COOK APPLES BEFORE YOU BAKE

No. Cooking the apples before baking is not necessary. They will bake in the oven and become just tender

WHAT APPLES ARE GOOD FOR APPLE CRUMBLE

Choose an apple with a sweet-tart flavor like Granny Smith, Jonagold, or Honeycrisp.

CAN YOU REFRIGERATE APPLE CRUMBLE

Leftover Apple crumble can be refrigerated. Store in an airtight container or wrap firmly using cling wrap. Expect the topping to not be crunchy afterward because the oats do get soaked and become softer. If you are making apple crisp ahead, do not add the topping over the filling. Store the topping separately in a ziplock bag and pour over the filling before you place it in the oven to bake.

CAN YOU REHEAT APPLE CRUMBLE

Apple can be stored for later use and reheated at any time. Either reheat using the microwave or pop it back into the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. If reheating frozen apple crumble, allow it to thaw in the fridge a day before or overnight before baking or reheating.

CAN I FREEZE APPLE CRUMBLE BEFORE BAKING

Apple crumble can be frozen for 3-4 months whether they are baked or unbaked.

CAN APPLE CRUMBLE BE SERVED COLD

YES.  It is more of what your personal preference is. Some may like it cold so it can be enjoyed either hot or cold.

    This is the first time I made a crumble using oats and I’m a wheat intolerant so they were gluten free oats. I didn’t measure the ingredients because I was making a small amount for myself but wow!! This was sooo delicious and no sugar or butter!!!Amazing!! Will make this more often as it starts getting colder. Thanks for the recipe

    Wow, this is one of the healthiest recipes I have ever tried, with a bit off apple flavor we can definitely call it a healthy dessert. I have kept some for later and ate it cold and it was even better thanks for this.
