This crunchy crumble is the perfect topping for an ice cream sundae, easy apple crumble, or our Build-Your-Own Thanksgiving Pie Bar. Pro tip: Keep a batch of the unbaked mixture in the freezer in case of dessert emergencies.

Yield Makes about 3 cups

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temperature, cut into pieces


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Add butter and work into dry mixture with your fingertips until pea-sized lumps form. Add oats and mix with your fingertips until clumps form; it should look like crumb topping. Chill 15 minutes.
  • Transfer mixture to a parchment-lined sheet tray and bake 8 minutes. Using a metal spatula, stir and toss crumble. Rotate tray and continue to bake until crumble is dark golden brown, about 8 minutes more. Let cool.

The crumble topping didn't brown as much as I expected. I think I should have cooked it for a little longer.

This crumble topping is a bit too sweet for my taste. I would reduce the amount of sugar next time.

I'm allergic to gluten, so I used gluten-free oats in the crumble topping. It turned out great!

This crumble topping is the perfect way to use up leftover oats. It's a great way to reduce food waste.

I added some chopped walnuts to the crumble topping and it gave it a nice nutty flavor.

I'm not a huge fan of cinnamon, so I reduced the amount in the recipe. It was still delicious!
