Caramel Apple Crumble

Jul 27, 2018

We came home from vacation to a pile of apples I had forgotten we bought before we left. Their skin was getting wrinkly and I was wondering how we’d eat ~7 apples over the next day or so. That’s how this Caramel Apple Crumble recipe was born! Use up a million apples & get a little chubby doing it 😉

A crispy oat crumble over cinnamon baked apples in a caramel sauce. Perfect for fall. Perfect for dessert. Delicious anytime really.

 Every time I make this it somehow ends up gone within two days. Photos don’t do it justice, I swear!

Ingredients:

Caramel Apple Mixture:

  • ~9 c. chopped apples (I prefer Jazz or Pink Lady)

  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 c. melted vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
Directions:

  1.  Wash and slice/chop apples into whatever shape you wish. I prefer bite-size pieces so I chopped mine pretty small
  2. Pour the chopped apples into a non-stick 9×13 in. pan.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. Mix together the white sugar, 1 tbsp of flour, and 1 tbsp of cinnamon. Sprinkle over the apples and mix together.
  5. Pour the 1/2 c. of water over the apples as evenly as possible.
  6. Mix together the 3/4 c. flour, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 3/4 c. oats, 3/4 c. brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.
  7. Pour the melted butter over the oat mixture and stir to combine.
