Nothing feels more like Fall and beats a good, classic apple crumble. With the smells of cinnamon and apple spices infusing the home when you bake (and how forgiving this recipe is – it’s guaranteed to taste great), it’s a wonderful dessert for this time of year.

  • For the Apples:
  • 3 Ontario apples
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • zest of 1 lemon or 1/2 an orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or apple pie spice if you prefer)
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar (use 5 tablespoons for tart apples)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • Oat Crumble Topping:
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar (use 1/4 cup for tart apples)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (or apple pie spice)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds (or your favorite nuts chopped)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Peel, core and dice the apple into 1/2 inch pieces.
  3. In a large bowl, toss all the apple ingredients together and mix well.
  4. Divide the apple mixture between 4 baking dishes or 1 large one.
  5. In another bowl, add the oat crumb mixture and mix well until it's crumbly.
  6. Top the apple mixture with the oat crumble and press down slightly. Make sure to cover the entire surface.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes (individual size) and up to 40 minutes (large size) until the apples are bubbly and the oat crumb mixture is golden brown.
  8. Let the apple crumble cool down for 10 minutes (the filling is very hot out of the oven) and serve with vanilla ice cream.
