Homemade Apple Crumble

Homemade Apple Crumble

I love eating apple crumble, but I hate biting into a big chunk of an apple. Since I make my own apple crumble at home in a unique way, I decided to share the recipe with you.

You will need the following items to make your apple crumble:
  • 5 Granny Smith apples
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup softened butter
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup salted pecans

Follow these steps to make the apple crumble:

Step 1:
Peel the skin off of the Granny Smith apples and then core them. Dice the rest of the apples up into small bite-sized pieces. Most people leave them in full slices, but I prefer they are diced up.

Step 2:
In a large bowl combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and flour.

Step 3:
Add your softened butter to the mixing bowl and toss together.

Step 4:
Add the rolled oats and combine one final time.

Step 5:
Lay the apple pieces in a greased baking dish and cover with the apple crumble mixture.

Step 6:
Crush the salted pecans by placing them in a plastic zipper bag and hitting them with a meat tenderizer. Sprinkle over the top of the apple crumble mixture.

Step 7:
Bake for 30 minutes in an oven that has been preheated to 375 degrees F.


  • If you don’t want to use rolled oats, you can crush up a corn flake cereal and use that instead.
  • Almonds can be used instead of pecans if that is what you have on hand.
