Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Toss apples, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon together in a medium bowl. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.

  • Stir flour, oats, pecans, the remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and salt together in the medium bowl. Cut in butter with your fingers or a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Spread evenly over the apples. Bake until the topping is golden and the filling is bubbling, 45 to 55 minutes. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.


Ingredient Note: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free" as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
