Whole Grain Apple Crumble
Dessert is awesome. It can make the end of any meal whether it is a special occasion with lots of guests or just regular Tuesday when everyone actually got to sit around the table together despite busy schedules.
I love any dessert that includes apples, especially this Whole Grain Apple Crumble. Thankfully, you can get apples in every single grocery in every single season. So even if you are in a pinch for a quick dessert in the middle of winter, you can make an apple crumble. You can also make the filling ahead and the topping just takes a quick whir in the food processor before popping the whole business in the oven.
Apple Crumble is a Healthy Dessert Choice!
Serving in ramekins is a handy little hack for a few reasons. I always plan for everyone to have 1 dessert. Seems reasonable, right? I use the large ramekins and it takes about an apple and a half to fill each ramekin with apple filling. So the recipe for Apple Crumble is easy to scale. Even the topping can be eyeballed for increasing or decreasing the number of portions. The recipe is very forgiving.
Ramekins also eliminate any abundance of leftover dessert. I’m not going to lie – if there is leftover dessert in the fridge, I am probably going to eat it if I can beat my kids to it. Lastly, the ramekins fit in my dishwasher. No handwashing of large baking dishes that don’t fit. That means we can actually have dessert on a weeknight without creating a lot of extra work. (It also prevents my kids from arguing about who got the bigger serving!)
