I love apple crumble especially in winter !  It is my go to dessert when I have people over or just for the family.   This time, I tried to make it healthy by adding walnuts and using rolled oats instead of only flour.  Walnuts add a nice dimension to this classic dessert.    It tastes heavenly with a dollop of vanilla ice cream on the top.

What you need:

4 apples peeled and cubed

1 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup flour (maida)

3/4 cup sugar

100 gm butter chilled

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Juice of half a lemon

How to make:

  1.  Preheat oven to 180 degrees.  In a bowl combine the flour, sugar, oats, cinnamon  and butter.
  2.  Use your fingertips to add mix the butter into the flour mixture till it becomes crumbly.  Throw in the chopped walnuts.img_7827
  3.   In an ovenproof dish, add the cubed apples.  Toss the apples with lemon juice, a tablespoon of sugar and a tablespoon of the flour mixture.
  4.  Spread the walnut flour mixture evenly over the apples and dot with butter on top.
