Sans Meal Plan: What to do with your excess apples

Unable to keep up with your market share? Partook in the obligatory fall activity that is taking pictures on a farm apple-picking? Chances are, you have a surplus of Macouns and Galas. Here’s an easy and yummy solution way to put them all to good use: baked apples with oat crumble.


The apple part…..

  • Apples (duh)
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cups apple juice

The crumble part….

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Peel and cut your apples.



Toss the apples with the butter, sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and apple juice. Place the apples into into a baking dish and cover with foil. Bake the apples for about 40 minutes/until soft.


While the apples are baking, make the crumble. Combine the butter, cinnamon, vanilla, whole-wheat flour, oats, salt, honey, and brown sugar in a bowl.



Once the apples are ready, remove the foil and top with the crumble.


Bake until the topping is nice and crispy. Not only have you remedied your apple situation, but you’ve got the perfect recipe up your sleeve for Friendsgiving (which is in just over 2 weeks)!
