Fabulous Fall Fridays: Apple Crumble Pie for One
Happy Veterans’ Day, everyone! Thanks to all the service men and women who have bravely served for our country.
What dish is more American than apple pie? Don’t answer that. I’m sure this must be the most quintessential dish to represent our country.
It is also super appropriate for the autumn season.
So make it.
You probably have all the stuff in your house.
Just do it.
Apple Crumble Pie for One
1 medium apple (or two small apples)
Squirt of lemon juice
4 tbsp brown sugar, divided
2 tbsp whole wheat flour
2 tbsp quick or old fashioned oats
2 tbsp Smart Balance butter, cut into tiny pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 8 oz oven safe ramekin with non-stick cooking spray.
Peel and cut your apple. Toss it in a bowl with 2 tbsp of brown sugar, squirt of lemon juice and sprinkle of cinnamon. Place the apple slices in the ramekin.
Stir together the flour, 2 remaining tbsp of brown sugar, oats and butter and top the apples with this mixture.
Bake for 30-45 minutes until the top is golden and apples are bubbly.
Serve with ice cream and a drizzle of caramel syrup if desired.
This pie is perfect for people trying to eat healthier, because it is single serve and really good for you. But it is also really satisfying with a cruncy, oat-y topping and warm, gooey baked apples.
