Use whatever fresh or frozen fruit you have on hand to make this old-fashioned crumble. Typical crumble topping has as much as a half cup of butter--ours has just a bit of canola oil and, for richness, chopped almonds, which are full of healthy monounsaturated fats.

Directions

Instructions Checklist

  • Combine fruit with granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and orange juice. Divide among four 6-ounce ovenproof ramekins. Combine oats, nuts, brown sugar, the remaining 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Drizzle with oil and stir to combine. Sprinkle over the fruit mixture. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet.

  • Bake until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Tips

Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

This was fabulous and will be made again and again. I did some substitutes. Truvia Sugar and Truvia Brown Sugar instead of regular. 1/4 tsp of Orange Extract instead of OJ. Added 1/4 tsp of Vanilla extract just because. Used Veg Oil instead of Canola. Turned out fantastic. Next time will use more fruit because this only filled my Ramekins about 1/2 way. Read More

Been making this every week for about 2 months just for me. Love it. I make it in a small casserole dish. I like it hot or cold. Fresh blueberries are best but I have also used frozen mixed fruit which needs to be thawed and drained. Read More

Simple yet Elegant Made this with mixed blackberries blueberries and raspberries and it was delicious. Followed the recipe except used sugar/stevia blend instead of granulated sugar used 2 Tbl butter instead of canola oil and walnuts because that is what I had on hand. Will definitely make this again but next time I will have vanilla ice cream on hand! Pros: Easy Read More

Perfect for Summer! I made this for company with fresh raspberries blueberries and 1 gigantic plum. My ramekin cups are standard size but it took exactly 4 cups of fruit instead of the 2-1/2 cups posted to fill all 4 cups just right. I used Splenda and Splenda Brown Sugar lemon juice instead of orange juice and melted butter instead of canola oil (more flavor!). Company loved it! Read More

Yummy! Yum! The perfect dessert for a cold winter's night! As other reviewers have said this is a very versatile dessert because you can just use whatever combination of fruit and nuts you have on hand. Although next time I will double the crumble mixture - not quite enough for us because we like it thick and crunchy. But overall a great - and quick! - dessert option. Pros: Tasty versatile perfect comfort dessert quick Read More

A very versatile dessert and quick. I also use Splenda and Splenda brown sugar and whole wheat flour. Any fruit will do including raisins or dried berries mixed with fresh or frozen fruits. I have even made it with grapes that were getting soft (delicious). I make the larger recipe of topping and store it in the freezer for easy quick usage when I want to use up fresh fruit. Lemon juice or 1 teaspoon lemon zest works just as well as the oj. Read More

Good Staple Recipe I like this recipe except for the fact that it touts canola oil as healthy (it is not!!). Cultured butter is really good for you so that is what we always use. Also I substituted spelt for the flour. Now that's eating well!! Pros: Uses nuts. Cons: Uses flour and canola oil. Read More

Yum. I love this recipe and have made it several times. It is a great way to use up a bag of frozen fruit that doesn't have much flavor. Once it is cooked it tastes great! Read More

I made this using some fresh blueberries that were getting dried out in the fridge. Made a great crumble! My husband asked if it was actually good for us. I might cut back on the sugar used next time since it was slightly too sweet. The recipe is very quick to put together and doesn't require a special shopping trip for lots of ingredients you won't use again. I want to try it with apples next! Read More

Can't stop making this recipe!! Without a doubt one of the easiest and most delicious baked desserts ever. I use all brown sugar and double the nuts (I've used pecans and walnuts whatever happens to be around). Also I make it in a single large baking dish. I've used each of these a number of times: peaches; pears and fresh figs; half frozen and half fresh blueberries; apples. I've served it to guests and also "just us." It's perfect with vanilla ice cream. Read More

Delicious and Easy I made this for dessert for my husband and I last night and we absolutely loved it. Instead of ramekins I used a small casserole dish. We ate ours with butter pecan ice cream but a vanilla bean ice cream would be just as good. You could really put any type of nuts in this. We will be serving this at our next family gathering and can't wait to experiment with different fruits. Read More
