  • Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl. Work in oil and apple juice concentrate with your fingers until coarse crumbs form.

  • Firmly press 2 cups of the oat mixture into the prepared pan. Arrange apples over the crust in three rows. Mix walnuts into the remaining oat mixture. Sprinkle the walnut mixture evenly over the apples and pat firmly into an even layer.

  • Bake until the top is golden brown and the apples are tender when pierced with a sharp knife, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.

I've made these four times in as many weeks. They are great! (The lemon zest is what makes them.) Everyone I've made them for has asked for the recipe and been thrilled and surprised to learn they are semi-virtuous. Read More

This crumble recipe is great but I tripled the apples to give it more moisture. (I added a layer to the bottom of the pan then another layer on top of the last of the crumble.) My boyfriend can't get enough of it! Read More

Simple to make! This is an easy apple dessert for those (like me) who are intimidated by baking. Easy to make and low calorie. Read More
