Apple crumble with walnuts

    1 hour 15 min

    This apple crumble has all the traditional ingredients but I've tried to make it slightly healthier by using less sugar, wholemeal flour instead of white flour and with the addition of oats and walnuts.

    I never review recipes but I couldn't let this one go without. I had a crazy amount of apples from my nanas trees and was apple buttered right to death so I decided to switch it up for this apple crisp. I made a pan for both my mother and mother in law (who is an amazing cook) and my mother in law lost her mind when she tasted it. Its all she could talk about all day. I used brown sugar instead of white and doubled the cinnamon. Hands down best apple crisp ever!  -  27 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Oh wow! Best apple crisp ever! I made it as written first time and it was good, but the second time, it was even better when I made these changes: I omitted the white sugar and subbed in brown sugar, doubled the cinnamon, added some ginger (a healthy dash) and some nutmeg (a regular dash). I also omitted the water, it was not necessary and my second batch without the water was a much, much better consistency. (The apples are juicy and release that juice when baked, so go ahead and skip adding that water.) Oh, and in both batches, I used old-fashioned oats, not the quick cooking kind and I subbed corn starch for the flour in the filling, something I always do for fruit pies, cobblers, etc... :-)  -  06 Nov 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought this applecrisp was delicious, can't even tell it's healthier. I even substituted two tablespoons of the butter with water and it was still really good.  -  16 Oct 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
