Apples are one of my favorite drupes. Nothing beats chewing a cold, chewy sweet apple. Except for the crunchy steamed apple crumble with creamy frozen vanilla ice cream on top.
The aroma of cinnamon and apples baked in the kitchen is one of the best and most beneficial there. This easy Pioneer Woman apple crumble recipe is like a warm hug on a winter day.
This easy Pioneer Woman apple crumble recipe is not your daily recipe. It is much healthier than regular Pioneer Woman apple crumbles because it uses a combination of oat flour and almond flour instead of medium-strength flour. You don’t have to sacrifice taste to eat healthily.
In this easy Pioneer Woman, apple crumble recipe, apples are baked to perfection with stickiness and topped with a mixture of butter, brown sugar, oats, and almond flour to make a perfectly crispy rind.
INGREDIENTS OF PIONEER WOMAN APPLE CRUMBLE RECIPE
- Melted butter: Do not use margarine in this recipe. Margarine is just hydrogenated oil. Use unsalted butter.
- Oatmeal 4: If you can’t find oatmeal at your local grocery store, it’s easy to make. Add oatmeal to the blender and pulse until the oatmeal becomes powdered sugar.
- Almond flour: I like to use extra-fine flour made from whole blanched almonds.
- Brown sugar: for the top layer, brown sugar is a must. Brown sugar gives apple crumble a caramel-like flavor that can`t be achieved using white sugar.
- White sugar: if your apples are a bit tart, or you want the bottom part of your crumble to be gooey, caramelized, and sweet, add ½ cup white sugar to your apple wedges. When the crumble bakes and the sugar dissolves, it will mix with the juices from the apples to create the most delicious syrup. If you are counting calories, you can bake the apples without this added sugar. Apples: There is much debate about the best apples for streusel.
- Cinnamon: This is a must for me. Without it, the taste would definitely not be the same. Cinnamon is for apple crumble, just as syrup is for pancakes.
- Ginger: Gives an apple crumble an additional layer of flavor. It has a little kick and adds a very interesting flavor combination when used with cinnamon.
- Lemon juice: This is a very sweet dessert. A small amount of lemon juice gives it a slightly sour taste that enhances its sweetness and gives the taste a perfect flavored symphony.
