Easy Cinnamon Apple Crumble (Crisp) is foolproof! A juicy and jammy apple pie filling is covered with a crispy cookie-like topping, this crumble with become your favourite dessert!
Apple Crumble is a dessert you wouldn’t care if you ate for every meal of every day! The easy answer to apple pie with all of the flavour and minimal effort!
Most apple crumbles we’ve had in the past (or apple crumble depending on where you are in the world), are either too dry on the inside, OR too watery creating a super soggy crumb top instead of a CRISPY crisp topping. With Melbourne’s bipolar weather lately, all I’ve been wanting is pie. This was the next best thing, because who doesn’t love an oatmeal cookie smothering an apple pie style filling?
Apple Pie Filling
First, you’re going to slice them apples. I always use red apples because we prefer the taste. HowEVER, for a more tart crisp, use green or granny smith apples. Also, here’s a not-so-pro but home cook tip! For a soft, tender apple filling, slice your apples thinly to ensure they cook right through. They will be so soft, falling apart deliciously surrounded by so.much.naturally.occuring.syrup For a slightly crunchier filling, slice them thicker.
Prepare your crisp / crumble topping with ingredients I KNOW you have in your kitchen cupboards, then mix your crumble until the butter soaks through your dry ingredients. Top your filling.
Celebrate and give three cheers to no dough making/chilling/rolling and kinda cheating on apple pie with this easy apple crisp. There’s SO MUCH delicious THICK SYRUP on the INSIDE!
Best Apple Crumble Recipe
I do have a final warning. Start eating by yourself before anyone realises what you’re doing, because the whole pan WILL be gone in seconds. Just watch your portion. Save it. Hide it. Pretend there’s none left. Listennnnnn to meeee. A desperate woman that misses out on this crisp every.damn.time.

Easy Cinnamon Apple Crumble is foolproof! A juicy apple pie filling is covered with a crispy oatmeal cookie-like topping makes this the BEST apple crumble!
- 8 medium apples (or 10 small apples), peeled, cored and sliced*
- 1/3 cup white granulated sugar (or a natural granulated sweetener) measuring 1:1 with sugar)*
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats (or rolled oats for a chewier crumb)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/3 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter, melted (I use light or reduced fat)
Preheat oven to 175°C | 350°F.
Arrange the sliced apples into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Add the sugar, flour and cinnamon over the apple slices. Pour in the water and mix everything through until apples are evenly coated.
In a bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and melted butter. Mix well using a metal spoon or your fingertips, until the butter has soaked through the dry ingredients (about one minute of mixing or less). Sprinkle evenly over the apple filling.
Bake in preheated oven for 40 - 45 minutes, or until he crumb is golden and crisp and the apples are cooked to your liking.
*I used red apples as we prefer the taste. For a more tart crisp, use green or granny smith apples with 1/2 cup sugar instead of 1/3 cup in the filling.
*For a soft, tender apple filling, slice your apples thinly to ensure they cook right through. For a slightly crunchier filling, slice them thicker.
