Easy Thanksgiving Apple Crumble

Looking for a super easy dish to make from scratch for your next gathering? Try this super easy apple crumble! I found this recipe online and just had to try it as a simpler alternative to my usual apple pie. The kiddo was able to help mix everything up and it requires so much less prep work and cleanup, too. All you need is a medium bowl and your pie dish! Simply mix the first ingredients in the pie dish and the second batch in the medium bowl, then pour it over top. Because there’s no crust to make there’s also less mess and things that are hand wash only (yay!) at the end of baking time. Give this recipe a try with your family —You’ll love it!

Savannah really enjoyed mixing the ingredients with me for this recipe, and my husband’s co-workers enjoyed getting to eat it all! Follow the recipe below to make it yourself at home with your kiddos, or click the Print button at the bottom of the recipe to print it out and save for later. My recipe source is also listed at the bottom of the recipe, near the print option, if you’d like to see the original (they’re fairly close).
