Simple Oatmeal Apple Crumble

apple crumble

I was in the mood for simple oatmeal apple crumble, but I tried to be good.

They finally got to me. Every time I opened the refrigerator door, the apples called out to me.

When I looked in the cabinet, the oatmeal and cinnamon whispered my name.

I was able to bypass the huge pumpkin craze, but the flavors of fall finally succeeded in seducing me, and I had no choice but to make Apple Crumble.

Since baking is better with a friend, I enlisted Ayva’s help to make our sweet apple treat.

Simple Apple Crumble


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup Quaker Oats
  • 1/2 cup sugar + 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon + 2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 5 to 6 cups apples (peeled and cored)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place chopped apples in a 13x9 inch baking dish.
  3. Mix 1/4 sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon together in a small dish. Spoon over apples.
  4. Beat the remaining ingredients (except for butter) together with a hand mixer until the mixture is crumbly.
  5. Pour the crumb mixture over the apples.
  6. Pour the melted butter over the crumb mixture.
  7. Place the baking dish in the oven and let bake for 35 minutes.
  8. Enjoy delicious apple crumble with milk.

I’m a lazy baker. I don’t have the patience to bake the types of pies and cakes that require you wait for things to rise or for the perfect conditions. I’m always looking for ways to make my favorite desserts faster and easier. 

This is dessert, y’all.

I’m telling you, it’s so sweet, and parts of the crust and super crunchy and remind me of praline.

The next time we make this, I’m going to add walnuts and see how it tastes.

Oh, and trust me, you’ll definitely want to pair this crumble with a nice big glass of milk!

This Oatmeal Apple Crumble was made to be devoured with milk.

I really want to learn how to make low-cost gluten free breakfasts that I can bring with me to work, and the teenagers can bring with them and eat on the bus. Right now the convenience options are expensive!!

BTW: Kroger is one of my favorite grocery stores! Did you know they have Kroger giftcards that you can get through your church or school, and if you use the giftcard 4% of your purchase goes towards the organization? Loading the giftcard and shopping at Kroger last year paid for 2 kids to go to summer camp! :)
