Apple Crumble for One (Printable Page)
4 Cups of Oatmeal (Quick-cooking Rolled Oats)
1 Cup Flour (Regular, Barley or Whole Wheat... I use the Barley Flour all the time, now.)
1 Cup Bran Flakes
1/2 - 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar (Start with 3/4 cup of Brown Sugar, and gradually use less...)
1 - 2 tbsp. Cinnamon
3/4 to 1 Cup Butter, melted or soft (I always pop it into the microwave for about 30 seconds to melt it.)
2 tsp. Vanilla
Apple Sauce Just keep a jar of Unsweetened Apple Sauce in the Fridge -- the 'Fruit Base' goes in a regular Bowl right before you add the Crumble Topping, don't add it into the Apple Crumble Mix(!)...
Optional: You can add any other fruit -- peaches, stawberries, blueberries, raspberries or any other Fruit Mix are delicious. This Dish uses a Full Serving of Fruit, so it's very good for you, too!
I like to put some chopped Pecans or Walnuts sprinkled on the Apple Crumble, and that's really tasty.
You can mix 'n match so you always have 'new' treats!
Directions for the Crumble Mix:
Blend the Dry Ingredients, then mix in the Butter and Vanilla... I use a Pastry Cutter to mix up a big batch of the Crumble Mixture, but you can use a Spoon and Fork just as well.
Put it in an Air-Tight Container or a Large 'Zip-up' Freezer Bag and pop it in the Fridge.
I put in a 1/4 or 1/2 cup measuring cup -- those plastic ones -- right in the container so I can easily measure out a 1/4 cup for a small serving of the Apple Crumble Treat, or 1/2 cup of the Crumble mix if it's for your Breakfast or Lunch.
(Add a wee bit more Cinnamon if you are dealing with Diabetes, since there have been some studies to indicate that Cinnamon may help in managing your Blood Sugars.)
How to Make Apple Crumble for One :
Pour about a 1/2 Cup of Applesauce into a Bowl (or Peel and Cut 1 Apple into little pieces and put on a plate)
Sprinkle 1/2 a Cup of the Oatmeal Topping over the Fruit.
Pop it in the Microwave for 1 Minute on High
The Cut Fruit will probably require between 2-5 minutes, depending on how soft the apple is, so the Apple Sauce is much faster and easier.
Voila! You're done and now you have Apple Crumble for One! Good luck with the 'One' bit, though, since it often seems that someone comes into the kitchen just as this comes out of the Microwave who 'just wants a wee bite', then they take at least half of it! ha,ha,ha! But at least they're all eating something tasty and healthy! Now, that's a real treat!
