Frozen raspberries, harvested and flash-frozen at their tangy-sweet peak, are great to have on hand in the depths of winter and year-round. Here they’re baked with chopped apples into a cozy, crowd-pleasing crumble-topped treat. Tip: To make your own oat flour for the crumble topping, pulse rolled oats in a food processor until they reach a flour-like consistency. You’ll need 2½ cups rolled oats to make 2 cups flour.

RASPBERRY-Apple crumble

Ingredients

  • 8 medium sweet apples, such as Gala or Fuji, chopped (48 ounces)
  • 1 pound frozen raspberries, thawed (4 cups)
  • 2 cups oat flour (see tip, above)
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, cook chopped apples, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Add a bit of water if needed to keep apples from sticking. Transfer apples to an 11-inch square or 13x9-inch rectangular baking dish; top with raspberries.
  3. In a bowl, combine oat flour, rolled oats, maple syrup, almond butter, baking powder, and salt; rub in with fingertips until mixture comes together in small clumps. Spread the crumble over the fruit. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  4. Serve warm.

Made a half recipe for the hubbie and I. Really good! Love that it isn’t overly sweet. But still seems decadent.

I made this recipe using fresh peaches that needed to be used and frozen blueberries. From previous comments I read….I covered an 8×8 Silicone pan with peaches and then topped those with frozen blueberries. I like the crumble to cover the entire portion so I used the same amount of crumble in this recipe to completely cover all the fruit…generously. I also used more maple as FOK recipes seem to be on the lesser end of spices and everything nice…it was DELICIOUS! Thank you!

Of course you can…use maybe some unsweetened applesauce…you want to bind the ingredients to form a moist “crumble” . If you can use legumes…I used cashew butter.

I was missing my mother’s traditional apple crisp with a butter, sugar and flour topping so I was excited to find this recipe. I have made this three times now, adjusting recipe to 2/3 the amount for the topping as I was using a smaller baking dish. I added frozen strawberries instead of raspberries into the apples in the saucepan along with a teaspoon of cinnamon before transferring to the baking dish. It tastes even better cold (if you have any leftovers that is!).

This was very easy to make and what’s great is that you can switch the berries to what you have on hand…we used blueberries. My husband loves apple crumbles and normally apple crumbles have a lot of sugar, but this version is not overly sweet and the almond butter gives a subtle nutty flavour that just brings this all together very nicely. It was a win for us!

Debbie M….you could substitute pears for the apples, or any firm fruit…fruit crisps are all about using what’s in season and what suits your taste (okay, maybe not bananas in a fruit crisp!). Use any nut butter you’d like, or even sunflower seed butter.

This looks really good. Others had the same questions I had. Is it okay to use peanut butter instead of almond butter. Sadly, almonds no longer agree with me. And how about a substitute for the apples? Can’t have that either.

Can you tell me what non-sweetener I can use in place of maple syrup. Maple syrup will raise my blood sugar level so I need to substitute something else?

Monk fruit! Stevia… either or❤️ I’d add a tsp or so of maple extract though so you don’t lose that flavor.

I just tasted the crumble and and using the Applesauce and monk sweetener worked fine. The only thing I would recommend is to either not use frozen raspberries or adds something to make them sweeter as well. I used apples blueberries and raspberries.

I used a 1/2 a cup of applesauce and a 1/2 a cup of monk fruit blend ( The bag says to use just like sugar and a 1:1 ratio.) I’ll comment back after it’s done to let you know how it worked.

the baking powder seems unnecessary. No need for rising. What is it supposed to do in this recipe?

Joseph Thiebes12 months ago

The baking powder makes the topping more tender.

So easy and delicious, and it looks so pretty at the table! I added sliced almonds halfway through along with the drizzle of maple syrup recommended by a reviewer. Thanks for another healthful recipe that satisfies my sweet tooth.

I made something similar but it was too much crumble and I can only eat soft foods so I put the topping on the bottom – used apples blackberries and raspberries over the crumble on the bottom then put a little bit of crumble on the top so it turned into an oatmeal berry cake with oozy fruit in the middle. delish!

Great recipe. It’s a goto. I generally use a mix of raspberry & blueberry over the apples. My extra tip is to add an extra drizzle of maple syrup mid way through cooking. Delish

Best fruit crumble ever! I’ve made it three times. Once with raspberries, once with Saskatoon berries and once with cherries. All variations are delicious. Thank you for this recipe.
