Apple Crumble in a jar

As much as I love summer; long sunny days, barbecues by the lake and denim cut offs, I do really like fall time as well. Gimme fluffy scarves, fresh apples and pumpkin spiced everything and I’m one happy bunny. Fall food is my absolute favourite, and apple crumble being pretty high up on the list (possibly only behind pumpkin pie). My only issue with desserts is that I love them too much…honestly if I bake a pumpkin pie I will most probably have it all in one sitting (which is all fun and games until you can’t button up your jeans anymore) so when I get the chance, I try make individual portion desserts. This apple crumble in a jar is the perfect thing to bake up for a dinner party, or to meal prep as a little sweet treat, keep in the fridge and eat later. You can even tie a little bow around the top of the jar and offer it as a cute lil homemade prezie.

Apple Filling

  • 1 big apple (or 2 small/medium apples)

  4. Let the apple stuffing set in the fridge while you prepare the crumble
  5. Mix all the ingredients for the crumble in a separate bowl
  6. Fill your 3 glass jars with 1/3 of the apple stuffing each, and top with 1/3 of the crumble each
  7. Place the jars in the oven for about 20 minutes until the crumble is golden and the apple mix is bubbling underneath
