  • First, preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a muffin tin with paper muffin cups and then spray the paper cups with non-stick cooking spray.

  • In a separate large bowl, mix together crumble topping. Place rolled oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Then, add in a stick of softened butter and use a fork (or your hands) to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it forms little crumbles.

  • Add 2 tablespoons of the crumble mixture to each muffin cup and use the back of a tablespoon to press the crumble into the bottom of the muffin cup to create a well with the crumble. Once each muffin tin has a crumble well, place the muffin tin into the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

  • Remove the muffin tin from the oven and let the crumble crust cool for 10 minutes.
  • Next, scoop 1.5-2 tablespoons of the diced apples into each crust well and then cover the diced apples with 1-2 tablespoons of the remaining crumble. Try to pour the crumble over the top and sides of the apples gently pressing the crumble into the apples and connecting the crumble with the bottom crust.
  • Place the muffin tin back into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top of each mini apple crisp is golden brown.
  • Remove the muffin tin from the oven and let the apple crisps rest for 10-15 minutes.

Tips & Notes

  • When adding the diced apples and crumble to the crust, be sure that you press the crumble into the crust. This step is important if you want to have mini apple crisps that don’t fall apart.
  • We suggest refrigerating these mini apple crisps after baking to keep them firm.
    Feel free to use a gala apple or fuji apple.
