Easy Apple Crumble Recipe
(or at least, this is supposed to be easy to make if you don't get carried away with the flour and cinnamon.)

This apple crumble dessert is silly good and makes your house smell absolutely delicious.  Here's what you need:

6-8 Apples
2 cups Oatmeal
1/4 cup Flour
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Maple Syrup (only the real stuff please!)
3/4 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup raw or roasted/unsalted Almonds, chopped (optional)
2 Tbsp Cinnamon
Pinch of salt

First, let's get the hard stuff out of the way.  Core, peel and chop your apples.  Since we can all agree this an arduous task, pour yourself a yummy glass of Chardonnay to keep you company.  I recommend J. Lohr or Ontario's Jackson Triggs.

Next, add 1 Tbsp of the cinnamon.  If you decide to free hand it rather than measure, your apples may end up looking like sweet potato fries (pictured).  This is too much cinnamon. This is way too much cinnamon. But to start from scratch with a new batch of apples would be horrible, wouldn't it? And besides you don't have any left.  Remain calm, take another swig of your wine and add your sugar. 

Hint: If you overdose on cinnamon, you need to add more sugar.  Eat a slice or two until you get the taste you want.

Pour the apples into your baking dish and prep the crumble.  I highly recommend a food processor if you are going to incorporate the almonds because you'll be done in a jiffy.  If you're wondering, this is a KitchenAid 13-Cup and it's my new best friend in the kitchen.  Add the almonds and chop on a medium setting until they look like this:

Add your oatmeal, brown sugar, flour, butter, syrup, remaining cinnamon and pinch of salt and blend on medium for about 30 seconds or until it looks like this:

Top your apples with the crumble and pop the whole thing in your oven at about 350 for 30 minutes.  The crisp will be slightly golden when finished.  Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or just a spoon.

Great recipe I tried to make mine a little healthier so went with whole wheat flour, half the nuts used pecans
and lite margarine sticks. I also used splenda brown sugar, sugar free pancake syrup and mine came out great too! You can never have too much cinnamon in my book. :) I normally make this with honey and use
coconut flakes for my sweeteners it's good too try it. This would be good too to add a diced up orange too when it's finished baking and stir in gives it a cirtus tart with the sweet.

@Bren: sometimes I put chopped (frozen or fresh) cranberries in my crumble with the apples - so good! I wouldn't use craisins though. Blueberries is a great idea, and I would definitely try this with peaches or pears mixed with the apples.
