  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter unsalted, melted

    2 pounds green apples, ⅓ cup sugar, 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon apple pie spice, 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Combine and Sprinkle with Topping: In another large bowl, add all the topping ingredients and mix until clumps form. Spread over the apples evenly, crumbling with fingers.
    1 cup rolled oats, 1 cup all-purpose flour, ½ cup sugar, ⅓ cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon apple pie spice, ¼ teaspoon salt, ½ cup butter
  • Bake and Serve: Transfer the dish to the preheated oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden and the apples are soft. Serve warm with a good vanilla ice cream.



  1. Make sure your apples are at room temperature before baking with them, so if you’re one of those types to keep their apples in the fridge be sure to remove them well ahead of time!
  2. Keeping the peel of the apple on or not is totally up to you! I like to remove it from my apples for both visual appeal and to assure that my texture is spot on.
  3. Be sure to cut your apples up thin enough and and equal cubes to ensure they bake to tender perfection, we don’t want any hard or raw bits in our filling.
  4. Make sure to let your apple crumble cool completely before storing in the fridge. Seal completely or transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge for 3-5 days.
