This recipe is my go-to fall dessert! It is so easy to make, and is delicious! I have so many memories of picking apples with my family and then making them into fresh apple crumbles or pies, so this recipe is straight from my home in Ohio. The best part about this recipe is the versatility of it. You can also substitute different fruits into the recipe depending on the season, your preferences, or food allergies.
*Top 9 Allergy Friendly - Serves 4
For the Apples:
2 T sugar
2 teaspoons all purpose flour, gluten free flour, or cornstarch
3 apples peeled and sliced
¼ teaspoons cinnamon
2 ½ teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
The zest of ½ lemon
For the Crumble:
⅓ cup dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
¼ cup oats
2 T Earth Balance Dairy Free Butter (any butter works)
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, or gluten free flour
Optional: Serve with dairy free vanilla ice cream. My favorites are from So Delicious or Oatly.
Add the sugar, flour, apples, cinnamon, lemon juice, and lemon zest into a bowl and mix together until the fruit is completely coated with everything else. Set aside.
Combine the brown sugar, sugar, oats, flour, dairy free butter, and cinnamon in a bowl using either a fork or a pastry cutter. Combine until the mixture is medium-fine crumbles. Set this aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Take 4 mini ramekins and separate the apple mixture evenly between each dish. Take the crumble topping and pour it over the fruit. Roughly spread it out into an even layer. Bake at 350 for 15-20 min until they are bubbling and golden brown.
Serve with dairy free vanilla ice cream (optional).
I hope you enjoy!! Happy Thanksgiving.
