This Easy Apple Strawberry Crumble Recipe with oatmeal and nuts makes a delicious, healthy dessert idea using apples!
If you have different types of berries on hand, for example raspberries or blueberries, you can easily substitute them for the strawberries - or make a mixed berries and apple dessert crumble!
FOR THE TOPPING
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup *chopped walnuts or pecans
7 tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
FOR THE FRUIT FILLING
5 large apples (or equivalent) about 3 1/2 cup cored, peeled, chopped
2 cups sliced strawberries
3 tbsp. granulated sugar
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
FOR THE TOPPING
In a bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, brown sugar and the chopped walnuts.
Using a pastry cutter, a fork, or your fingers(!), cut in the butter and mix together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Core, peel and slice the apples, and chop into chunks.
Add the 3 tbsp. sugar, the 2 tbsp. flour and the 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon into a bowl.
Add the sliced strawberries and the apple chunks to the bowl and toss to coat.
Transfer the fruit to a greased 9" square baking dish.
Sprinkle the crumble topping over top of the fruit.
Bake at 375° F for about 25 minutes.
Reduce heat to 325° and bake for another 10 minutes, or until topping is golden and fruit is tender.
Serve warm or cool, plain, or topping with a dollop of ice cream, whipped cream, whipped dessert topping, or Greek yogurt.
If your walnuts or pecans are not already chopped, simply place them between a folded piece of waxed paper, or inside a plastic bag, and roll over them with a pastry rolling pin!
This is a picture of the biggest strawberry I have ever seen!
I found this huge strawberry in the bottom of the container of berries when I was preparing the ingredients for this Fruit Crumble.
