Still using up our apples from our trip to the apple orchard earlier this month. This recipe isn’t particularly low in calories, nor it is a super-duper health food, but wow is it delicious! I’ve even been known to enjoy it for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee. It’s really a perfect once in a while treat . . .
3/4 c. flour
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. oatmeal (not quick cooking)
1 stick cold butter, diced
5 or 6 apples, peeled and sliced
zest of half an orange
zest of half a lemon
2 T orange juice
1/4 cup sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
Step one: Preheat oven to 325. Make the crumble – mix the dry ingredients in a mixer and add the butter. Mix until it starts to ball up – I use my stand mixer which makes it quick and easy.
Do you have any “once in a while” recipes? Ones that aren’t super healthy, but that you make for your family on occasion just because they love it? What are they and why are they special?
