Healthy Apple Crumble!

Secretly healthy apple crumble, with a rich and buttery crumble that literally melts in your mouth.

A little-known fact about me:

I love apple crumble so much that I sometimes choose it over chocolate.

I’ve been known to choose it over dinner, too. It all started during my freshman year of high school, one night before the prom, when my group of friends ate at a place called at Tony Roma’s. Naturally, all of the boys ordered steaks or ribs. And naturally, all of the girls ordered salads. Apparently that’s the stereotypical ladylike thing to do when you go out on a date.

Uninterested in the prospect of lettuce as dinner, I scoured the menu for something more substantial. For vegetarians, the offerings were pretty slim.

However, I noticed they had apple crumble on the dessert menu. Topped with ice cream, of course. So that became my dinner—and it was awesome. From then on, every time we went out to a not-so-vegetarian-friendly place like Tony Roma’s or Hard Rock or TGI Friday’s, I didn’t worry what to get for lunch or dinner… I just ordered apple crumble!

single-serving apple crumble!

This healthy apple crumble reminds me of the one from Tony Roma’s–sweet cinnamon apples mixed with buttery crumbles…  it is perfect for any time of the year (but especially Fall).  It also makes a generous serving, not some little half-cup thing.

Try topping it with this recipe: Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

And eat it for dinner!

Print This Recipe No ratings yet.


  • 1 medium-sized apple, diced small
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp apple pie spice (you can probably sub cinnamon)
  • 1 stevia packet or 1-2 tbsp sugar or sucanat
  • optional add-ins: walnuts, raisins, etc.
  • 3 tbsp quick oats (15g) (For substitution notes, see nutrition link below.)
  • 2 tsp oat flour (or another flour of choice) (4g)
  • 1 tbsp oil or butter-type spread (such as Smart Balance Light or Earth Balance) (15g) (For a fat-free substitution, see "nutrition facts" link below.)


Healthy Apple Crumble Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 F and grease an oven-safe 2-cup dish. In a small mixing bowl, combine first five ingredients (and optional add-ins, if desired). Stir well. In a separate mixing bowl, combine remaining three ingredients and stir well. Now mix everything together and pour into the greased dish. (If you like a more-crumbly crumble, increase the amounts of the last three ingredients.) Bake 40 minutes (in the middle of the oven, not the very top), then turn the oven to high-broil for 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat, but let sit in oven 15 more minutes.

  1. Bring on the dessert for dinner! Just load on the veggies at lunch and you’re good to go! 😉

    1. Brenda says:

      I’d like more microwave recipes. Can’t wait to try chocolate cake.will be checking. It out really soon.

  2. Liz says:

    I think that as long as you eat healthy most of the time, you are good to go to eat dessert for dinner every now and then!

    I’ve definitely had your cookie dough dip for dinner before ;).

    1. Liz says:

      Also, those photos are GORGEOUS!

      I must go see about this vanilla bean ice cream. It looks really really good.

  3. lisa fine says:

    Acceptable, but I don’t think it always agrees with me.

    Back in college my roommate and I decided to each eat a pint of Ben and Jerry’s before dinner…and never ended up eating anything else for the evening. So ice cream was my dinner, but I felt kind of lethargic and blah.

    I think some apple crumble would have given me the extra oomph that I needed!

  4. Ashley says:

    Dessert for dinner is most definitely acceptable!! especially if it’s your healthier desserts x) I am guilty of this on more than one occasion. As long as i have my veggies in,(as I crave them if I don’t get enough in a day) I don’t see why not! x)

  5. Kelly says:

    On birthdays, it’s a tradition that I always eat chocolate birthday cake for dinner. No veggies, but who cares? It’s my birthday!

    1. anonymous says:

      you should try this one:

      its chocolate cake with veggies, so its ok for dinner :).

  6. I cannot wait to try this! I’ve never had any sort of ‘crumble’ dessert and I eat an apple a day with lunch so I’m pretty fanatical about the delicious fruit :)

  7. I’ve never had dessert for dinner. For breakfast, yes! I’m always in the mood for sweets at breakfast time and it’s so easy to disguise what’s really dessert as an acceptable breakfast. :-)

  8. Haha I’ve only eaten dessert for dinner in my own apartment (joys of living alone), but I LOVE apple crumble and apple pie, definitely my favorite dessert!

  9. Lauren says:

    Dessert for dinner….hmmm, I’d say not for me. If it’s in the form of a smoothie, and I can throw some chard or a green veggie in, then I feel better! This is great! I just made an apple crisp the other night and have been craving it again. I like to do a combo of apples and blueberries, but the oat topping is what I really love. :-)

  10. lil deli says:

    Dessert for dinner is the best idea

  11. I think that dessert for dinner totally depends on two things: Whether or not it is healthy, and whether or not it is a frequent thing or just a special occasion. If it’s healthy, why not? Eat it for every meal! :) If it’s not, just enjoy it once in a while.

    I love the idea of a single-serving version. I think I’ll try topping this with banana ice cream. Have you ever mixed banana and apple together? I wonder how it will taste.

  12. when I was a poor university student, me and my housemates used to cook up a main meal at home first (to save £) and then go out to eat dessert only at a restaurant! We took our time and made an evening of it with a little bit of alcohol alongside…those were the days! :-)

  13. Shelby says:

    I think I’m going to have to make that for lunch!

  14. Ed says:

    Apple anything is by far my favorite dessert, my grandma use to make these same type recipes, all personal size for the grandchildren…brings me back to those day lol

  15. Yum! I don’t usually feel so well if I eat dessert for dinner (whether it’s in my head or not), but this looks delicious for after the main course!

  16. Lea says:

    I love that you ordered desserts as dinner! It’s true though, when you’re a vegetarian your better off finding something on the dessert menu that the dinner menu!
    Your apple crumble looks delicious! I made something like this a couple weeks ago but I will definitely have to give your version a try!

  17. Thanks for the single serving recipe! I’m always looking for these because it’s dangerous to have too much of a good thing lying around the house. :)

  18. I love the dessert for one! Anytime is a good time for dessert! This looks great! I made a pear crumble the other night and hope to put it on my blog tomorrow!

  19. Hannah says:

    Hi Katie, I was wondering if you (or anyone else reading this) can help me – I want to make vegan ice cream for a family thing (as my cousin is vegan) and would like it to resemble regular (full fat) ice cream as much as possible, but without having to use coconut cream as the base (I’m making rum & raisin ice cream so don’t want the coconut flavour). I realise that the point of your recipes is that they’re low calorie (and usually very low fat), but I was wondering if you might have some ideas that you haven’t posted on the blog (like a non-diet ice cream you make for yourself)? I would be so grateful for any tips! (Please don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t want to try the ice cream recipes you already have up, I’m sure they’re a great substitute if you’re watching your calorie intake, but I’ve tried making ice cream with milk in the past and find it too thin, and lacking that creamy ice cream texture.) Anyway, thanks in advance!

    1. Have you tried creamer? I recommend Silk creamer. I think all my recipes–the ones that call for an ice cream maker–have a creamer option. And it’d work in the vita recipes as well. The only thing is that it’s best to serve homemade ice creams when you make them (or within a few hours). Otherwise, you’ll have to thaw a little, as homemade ice creams lack the stabilizers present in commercial ice creams.

      I am actually working on a cashew-based ice cream recipe, as well as a pistachio one for the cookbook. But neither is completely perfected yet.

  20. Greg says:

    Where can you find apple pie spice? Thanks

    1. Grocery store spice section, with all the other spices and extracts. Most normal grocery stores (in the US, at least) will sell it.

  21. Eating dessert for dinner….totally acceptable! How about dessert for breakfast?

  22. Leslie says:

    Let me just say, I LOVE ME SOME CHOCOLATE-COVERED KATIE! I sing your praises on pinterest and FB and your recipes are delish!
    I am a low-carber, but not necessarily GF, vegan, or vegetarian. Your recipes have offered me great options to the traditional low carb/ southbeach desserts and I have been able to substitute and “play with them” to great result.
    Thought I would tell you too!

  23. I love apple pie/ crumble/ cobbler but hardly have it because I don’t want to make a whole dish… Love the single serve option! I’ve made a baked apple before with oats that’s similar 😛

  24. urbanvegan says:

    Lookin’ good, CCKatie!

  25. IC says:

    I had dessert for breakfast this morning… healthy ice cream (using some soy milk and vegan raw protein powder) and a slightly improvised single lady pumpkin cake.

    When I was training for a marathon I would eat 2 – 3 tubs of Edy’s ice cream (yes, those 10-12 servings big tubs) in a weekend easily. Unfortunately I have a soft spot for ice cream so if I buy it, I eat it.. all of it… as quickly as humany possible.

  26. Stephanie says:

    I made this as soon as I saw you post it! It’s almost done, I just tried a bite…and it is SOO good!!

    I eat a dessert like dinner every once in awhile. But I always end up wanting more dessert afterward, which can turn into a bad thing.

  27. I’m all about dessert for dinner, not so much recently but I would also have to have dessert! This looks delicious!

  28. You would be the most fun date ever! You’re dance partner was a lucky man :-)
    I love all of your single-serving desserts. As the lone sweet tooth at home, I can still get my fix without going totally overboard. Apple crumble is perfect for fall too. Thanks Katie!

  29. Nikki says:

    I live by the 80/20 rule . . . 80 percent of the time I eat very healthfully, lots of fruits and veggies, nuts, grains, and water. And 20 percent of the time I splurge!

    So, if you are (for the most part) following a balanced diet, a few nights of dessert for dinner never hurt anyone. 😉

  30. This has nothing to do with the post (although apple crumble sounds awesome right now) but in health class today, we were talking about drugs and in the book it says that cocaine comes from the leaves of the cocoa plant…. Is that why chocolate is so addictive? 😉

    1. RL says:

      I believe it’s the coca plant, not cocoa.

  31. Yay! I’m all about the single-serving desserts and this one is just so appropriate for this season!

  32. kimthevegan says:

    “And naturally, all of the girls ordered salads. Apparently that’s the stereotypical ladylike thing to do when you go out on a date.


    Ok, that actually made me laugh out loud ;p
    I was also one of those girls that never cared what other people thought when eating in restaurants =)
    Can’t wait to try this – looks super tasty!
    I actually could never stand something like this in my pre-vegan days, but then I realised I just didn’t like the fake crazy sugared stuff, I like actual flavours (like real cinnamon etc).

  33. Depends on the dessert. I have made vegan cannolis that had sweet potato, whole wheat, tofu, and banana (amongst other goodies). With no added sugars and baked shells…easily a healthy meal with all the food groups.

  34. Robin says:

    Hmmm….I have one apple sitting on my counter. No husband or baby tonight either. I think I might just have this for dinner myself! Thank you Katie!

  35. Milise says:

    Actually, dessert or even breakfast for dinner have been more and moer common since I started college! 😀 That and soups. Lots of soups. ^^

  36. Wow-looks like great! Your pictures are beautiful too! : ) Can’t wait to try this-love your recipes!

  37. apple crisp is one of my absolute favorite desserts so I’m definitely going to try this soon!

  38. Anonymous says:

    Not if it’s that one – 220 calories isn’t dinner!

  39. Dahlia says:

    Katie…you are a legend!

  40. Katarina says:

    This looks yummy! Have a great weekend!

  41. Dessert for dinner? No hesitation there- totally acceptable! Dessert for any meal is acceptable, really. And this apple crumble for dinner? 100% yes! 😉

  42. Lia says:

    Sooo acceptable! I’ve had dessert dates where that’s what we did! Apple Crumble is my second favorite dessert next to pumpkin pie!

  43. Sarah says:

    Oh my goodness, my mom will love this one! I just recently discovered your blog, and I have to say, I love it!

    I’ve made your single serving chocolate cake several times, and also your brownie batter pancakes! :)

  44. Sunnie says:

    KATIE! Seriosly, I had apple crumble for dinner about a month ago . . . my mom made apple crisp for the family, and she made a vegan version for me! When I got home from work, I saw it . . . and decided that it looked better than whatever else was hanging around . . . and ate it. 😀 It was goooooood. You’re looks super yummy. I’m an apple fanatic, so I will DEFINITELY try this!

  45. Kina says:

    I made it for dessert and it was delicious. It didn’t even need ice cream on top at all! I wonder if I could make a bigger version and serve it for Thanksgiving. I might have to try.

    The crumble part was my favorite :).

  46. Yummy, I love apple crumble!
    I also always chose something from the desserts menue… 😉

  47. Laura says:

    OH. MY. GOSH. I tried to make something like this just a few days ago! I was craving apple crisp so I tried createing my own single serving recipe! Needless to say it didn’t work; chocolate covered genius I am not :(
    But now you’ve made the recipe for me! This will go to good use! 😀

  48. YUM!! Katie that looks so good! I love anything with apples! And single serve recipes are the best 😉

  49. Rachel says:

    I made this last night and it was so good! I noticed that the cooking time seemed a bit high (after the 3 minutes broiling mine was almost burned, but it was still delicious). I made it using evaporated milk, 1 tablespoon of white sugar, and 2 teaspoons of whole-wheat flour (because I was too lazy to grind up oats for that amount of oat flour) and 1 tablespoon of butter and got 291 calories for the whole recipe. Split it with the husband and topped with ice cream for a perfect post-dinner snack. Yum!

    1. I just tried it again to be sure, after reading your comment, and it still worked for me… but I know ovens can vary in temperature, and I’ve never actually calibrated mine. One of ours could quite possibly be incorrectly calibrated (it’s very common). That’s a project for me this weekend. But in the meantime I lowered the temperature in the recipe, as it won’t hurt it to cook a little less, regardless. Thanks for the feedback!

      1. Rachel says:

        I would be pretty willing to bet that my oven isn’t calibrated correctly, so that could be the problem. Our house was built in 1971, and while I’m pretty sure the oven isn’t original to the house I bet it’s at least 10 years old. We’ve also noticed that the back of the oven cooks food more quickly than the front. So it could be my oven is wonky, not yours. :) I also cooked mine in a cereal bowl that is oven-safe, so it probably cooked slightly different than it would have in a ramiken that has straight sides (if that made sense).

        P.S. Do you have more than one oven? I’m jealous. My oven is fairly small, and during the holidays it would be really nice to have two!

        1. Oh lol no, I meant “one of ours” as in yours or mine ;).

  50. I love crumbles and crisps and aplpe is my favorite! I love the recipe! Going to check out your vanilal bean ice cream!

  51. Jo-anne says:

    I always check out the dessert menu first when we get to a restaurant – I don’t know why it is always at the back, it should be on the first page!

  52. I say it is, course I’ve done that myself so I would agree lol :)

    And thanks for the recipe! This year I’m having to accommodate my dairy-free self at our family’s Thanksgiving and will be making my own dessert (and a few other dishes) while the rest of the family eats pumpkin pie…so now it’s between this (one serving), the crust-less pumpkin pie, or the chocolate-pecan. You give me too many choices! Maybe I’ll have a Thanksgiving eve dessert, and a black Friday dessert and just try them all lol

  53. Anonymous says:

    How about dinner AND dessert?

  54. Shayla B. says:

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for this recipe! I have had to go off of processed sugar because of a sugar sensitivity and Apple Crisp is one of the desserts I have missed the very most. I made this last night for my family after dinner and we all loved it. I thought it was perfectly sweet enough and delicious. I will be making this one again and again. I actually doubled the “crust” ingredients and loved the amount of chewiness.

  55. Paige Flamm says:

    This looks awesome and delicious!

  56. Michele says:

    Dessert for dinner? When my husband has been away at work, I will often turn to one of your recipes for a treat for myself and that is my supper! Chocolate is ALWAYS appropriate!

  57. I love making fruit crumbles! I usually go with a mix of strawberries and bananas, and add some nuts on top for more crunchiness:

  58. AnnR says:

    I’m so excited to try this recipe. I just tried a similar recipe that ended up more like oatmeal…it was good, but just not what I was looking for. This looks like the apple crisp I’ve been dreaming of all Fall. Now, about dessert for dinner? Why wait til dinner – this is going to be breakfast!

  59. i love apple crumble and thankfully have some apples laying around, going to make this right now lol

  60. AJ says:

    Hi, I’m wondering how you got less than 10 grams of fat for the entire serbing, when one tablespoon of butter has fifteen grams of fat. Did I do my calculations incorrectly or should you spilt the recipe into two servings?

    1. Anonymous says:

      I’d imagine she went by the Smart Balance Light listed first, which has 5 grams of fat per tablespoon according to their website.

  61. Granger says:

    I made this a few minutes ago, and it’s delicious! I actually microwaved it for 2 1/2 minutes since I was too impatient to wait for 40 minutes, but it turned out great!

  62. Bek @ Crave says:

    I think it’s acceptable but I’m always one to have my dinner before dessert 😉

  63. Silver says:

    Omgggg!!! I’ve vbeen looking all over for a healthy but still actually looks like apple crumble recipe!

    Of course, Katie saves the day again!

    I just checked your home page and saw this and made a little “EEEEPP!” Sound, and the looks I got… Hehe can’t wait to try x

  64. Silver says:

    Could I sub the oil with peanut or almond butter? Mmm peanut butter apple crumble….

  65. OH muy GAWD! Perfect. I can’t wait to try all of these goodies from this week. Your are so talented Katie! Thank you.

  66. Hi, new reader here. Your crumble looks lovely. I love apple crumble, it’s so good at this time of year.

  67. Michelle says:

    i just made this! it makes so much i split it with my brother who loves apple pie, but is not vegan! like you suggested, i doubled the crumble ingredients and added some walnuts. i only used 1 tbsp of sugar in the mix, but after i put everything in the dish, i sprinkled some sugar on top so it would make a nice caramelized crust. i also used cinnamon cause i didnt have apple pie spice and it still tasted wonderful!

    1. Jenna says:

      I used cinnamon too, and it came out really well! I like your idea to use less sugar and then put some on top. Apple Crumble Creme Brulee anyone?

  68. I would so eat that for breakfast with some fat free Greek yogurt!

  69. Meagan says:

    Absolutely acceptable!! I just had gluten free, dairy free healthy apple crisp!! My mom and I made it together!

  70. Jenna says:

    This was DELICIOUS!!! :)
    Thanks for the perfect dessert for a cold night. Your blog is the best!

  71. Sheilly says:

    This is a brilliant recipe! Apple Crumble is my one of my favorite foods. :)

  72. Annie says:

    Totally acceptable if it’s healthy.

    And if it’s not . . . well, then it’s acceptable for special occassions. (Although I know a lot of people who’d disagree w/me on that.)

  73. Annie says:

    This is probably one of my favorite desserts of all time, baked apples + ice cream = heaven! I really love your photography skills as well :)

  74. Tom Moore says:

    Hi Chocolate Covered Katie, I have to say that this is my first visit to your blog and as read all the post people write – I get the over bearing feeling that people are overjoyed to be involved in making desserts especially ones that have low calories. ps I think I keep this blog in my favourites list.

  75. Gabrielle says:


    “Not some half cup thing”

    Love this.
    Exactly how I feel after reading the nutrition stats on every single recipe ever.

  76. I absolutely LOVE Single Lady Recipes!!!! Katie, you are the BEST!!! 😀

  77. S says:

    Katie, I tried this out and it was delicious! My only problem was, after I broiled it for 2 minutes, some of the top bits were burned. Should I not use the high broil in that case? Thanks!

  78. DJ says:

    Hi!! I just want to complement you!!! So far everything of yours we have tried has been great. I am a mother of 5 with number 6 due in a few weeks- so we had to triple the recipe. My 11 year old and 14 year old made these for lunch today:-) they are fantastic. We used coconut oil and it was great. Thank you!!!!!
    We usually eat a hi raw diet- finding your site has given us some fun- keep up the great work, you really have a gift!
    Blessing- DJ

  79. Pamelia says:

    I have made this 4 times in the last two weeks. It is completely awesome and versatile. Be creative people! :)

  80. Christine says:

    Could I substitute the stevia with honey? I don’t have stevia right now and I don’t want to use pure white sugar. What do you recommend?

    1. Erin says:

      I know this is really late, but I did mine with just a little squeeze of agave and it turned out perfectly. Honey should work the same.

  81. Erin says:

    This is so good that I have made it two nights in a row! Delicious! We are eating it for dessert, not dinner, so it is enough for my husband and I to share. It’s a household fav for sure!

  82. This would make a great breakfast!

  83. Queen says:

    Don’t eat butter. don’t eat flour but it looks great

  84. Anonymous says:

    Don’t you have dessert as well as dinner?

  85. Allison says:

    What a great idea! I’d eat this anytime of day :)

  86. MC says:

    I just made this and it was so good. I didn’t want too much, so I split it into two ramakins and it was perfect for a desert for the two of us. Thanks!

  87. Am says:

    Totally Awesome! I just made this! Gluten free, and I also made it clean eating by using honey instead. Delicious! Thanks 😀

  88. Colleen says:

    Yowza! I had some peaches and apricots that I had to use up. Made this crumble with them. To die for. Thanks!

  89. Makayla says:

    I would like to see more apple recipes in the future especially with apple season coming up!!! :) Will definitely make this one though. Looks delicious :)

    1. Definitely planning more apple recipes, hopefully starting in September with enchiladas :)

  90. Noa says:

    Could this be baked in a toaster oven or microwaved? I have a feeling that it can’t just because it has to be beaked for 40 minutes at 350 F, but I thought I should ask anyway. I don’t like using the oven a lot because it can make my kitchen way to hot 😛

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      I’d try a toaster oven. It might work!

  91. Christine Moore says:

    I just made this using apples from my neighbor’s tree and it was delicious! I also topped it with this flavor of ice cream: After trying this combination, I understand what’s so special about cheddar cheese and apple baked goods.

  92. CutePi says:

    I’m going apple and peach picking this upcoming weekend. You can bet I will be trying this with apples AND peaches! Maybe not mixed together in one bowl, though. :)

  93. Robin says:

    SO PERFECT. I made this for myself and my parents tonight in ramekins and we loved it! We used 3 organic apples (honey crisp, golden delicious, and Granny Smith) from the Farmers’ Market, rolled oats, WW pastry flour, lots of cinnamon, and coconut oil. I used stevia in mine and raw turbinado sugar for my parents’. We also didn’t use any milk. It was a wonderfully satisfying fall dessert. Thanks!

  94. Rachel says:

    Hi Katie! -waves- I’m pretty sure I’m your biggest fan… I make your recipes every day, and tell all of my friends/clients about your blog. You’re amazing!
    Now…I’ve never altered your recipes, but I’m guilty here, and I had to share. I doubled the last ingredients, and -dun dun dun duuuuun!- MOLASSES! 1 tbs. I split it in half and shared with my fiance….Almost ate his share. The molasses gives it that “brown sugar” taste. I use this in recipes that call for brown sugar. Ill do xylitol and molasses usually, totally works! Just wanted to share because I’ve noticed brown sugar in some of your recipes and I know how you like to include substitutions! In this recipe no need for xylitol but the molasses made it that much better! Hope you try and like!

  95. cookie says:

    not exeptable

  96. Grace D says:

    What temperature do you bake at?

  97. Anna says:

    Hi Katie! I just wanted to say that I absolutely loved this recipe! I’m not that good at cooking, but I wanted to try and it is so delicious (I’m eating it right now with a cup of coffee) Thanks for sharing it!

  98. Kathy says:

    This is sooooo yummy!
    I doubled the recipe, and it makes more than enough for 2. I used coconut oil, added some chia bran, and made extra crumble-using almond flour.
    Unbelievably delish

  99. Kathy says:

    Yummy. I’ve been playing with this recipe for the last week or so and so far haven’t managed to mess it up. I like it as written, but doubled for two of us. And I’ve used strawberries (on sale this week and I was dying for berries), with cinnamon instead of apple pie spice.
    I’m curious about the last step of broiling and then leaving in oven. How does this help the recipe?

  100. Melody says:

    This is my all-time favorite CCK recipe!!!

  101. Rayca says:

    I love this new flakes and nut cluster cereal I found. As soon as I tasted it, I knew it would make a great replacement for a crumb or crisp topping. I’m going to add that in when I make this. Will post results.

  102. Lydia says:

    Has anyone tried doing this in the microwave? I did it a while ago, microwaved it for three minutes(with plastic wrap on it), and put it under the broiler for 2-3 minutes. It worked really well

  103. Ashley says:

    Apple crumble is amazing! We live close to this amazing group of orchards called Apple Hill (in California; I’m in Nevada) and each year for my sister’s birthday we go over there and go apple picking, and then I always make an apple crumble when we get home. I think I’ll try making individual ones with this recipe this year! :)

  104. Lori Gooch says:

    I love your blog! I’m making this recipe for breakfast tomorrow morning! :)

  105. Abigail says:

    Hello, Katie! I’ve been following your blog for months and I just love it. It’s my first time leaving a comment, but this was my first time trying one of your recipes and I felt the urge to share the outcome. This crumble was mind-blowing!

    Is there a way you could microwave this instead of putting it in the oven for so long and still get the cooked apples and desired “crisp”?


    1. I’ve not tried, but you can definitely experiment!

    My husband gave me ramekins for Christmas, specifically so I could make some of Katie’s single-serving recipes. Oh man…apples, pecans, and I tried molasses instead of sugar as somebody suggested…I am in a la mode heaven right now!

    Tried this recipe and it was amazing! Added chopped walnuts, extra cinnamon, and some chocolate chips. Thanks Katie!
