Effortless Apple Crumble

Effortless Apple Crumble

Last night, despite still having leftover homework from the weekend, I decided to make some apple crumble! The recipe is super simple and easy to follow. I was inspired by a recipe by lifestyle blogger Kalyn Nicholson and I decided to recreate it with my own twist! All in all, it took around 1 hour — including baking time.

The finished product! 


  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1 cup granola or oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 small apples (or 3 regular-sized apples), diced
  • 2 tsp cinnamon 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. First, mix together the flour, sugar, granola, melted butter, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl. I used a wooden spoon to do this in order to keep the crumbly consistency. Next, dice the apples into small cubes — around 1/2 inch in size. 

In a 2 quart size casserole dish, layer 2/3 of the crumble mixture on the bottom of the dish. Next, place the apples on top of the crumble later, sprinkling 2 tsp of cinnamon on the apples. Finally, layer the final 1/3 of the crumble on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

This dish is so delicious, especially when eaten warm. My roommate, Lizzy, and my boyfriend, Chris, both said they loved it! for my first time baking apple crumble, I definitely think it was successful!
