Quick and Healthy Apple Crumble

My lil A loves sweet. She becomes very happy when her snack time is perked up with something sweet. And given the high amount of sugar present in store bought cakes and candies, I try to make/bake something sweet and simple for her. This crumble is super easy to make, nothing can be easier than this! And it is healthy, so its a complete win-win.

Also, this time of the year is my favourite. The air is crisp, sun is sweeter and apples are bounty. Best time to make apple crumble.

(2 servings)

Apple - 1 skinned and chopped to bite size pieces 
Raisins - 8 - 10, brown/golden ( soaked in water for few minutes)
Lime juice - 1 tablespoon
All purpose flour - 4 tablespoon
Rolled Oats - 4 tablespoon (I used quick oats)
Sugar - 2 tablespoon (optional)
Salt - 1 pinch
Butter (softened) - 4 tablespoon
Vanilla essence - 1/4 teaspoon

Preheat oven at 200C. Coat the apple pieces with lime juice.

Grease the cake bowl with a little butter and and add the chopped apple pieces and raisins mixed with butter and 1 tablespoon sugar. Microwave for 2 minutes.

In a seperate bowl, mix flour, oats, remaining sugar, salt together. Add butter and mix it with hand. It will be crumbly. Do not knead. Add the vanilla essence and mix once more.

Add the crumbly crumble on top of the apple pieces and press it evenly on all sides. Bake it at 200C /375F for 10 - 12 minutes till the top starts to become golden brown.

Your apple and raisins crumble is ready. Yes, seriously!!!

I had great difficulty in keeping a little hand out of the way!

Enjoy it with whipped cream or a scoop of ice-cream of your choice. I served with a dollop of greek yogurt.

There goes the little finger!
