Apple Crumble For One

If there’s one food item that just screams “autumn” to me, it’s apples. Not pumpkins, which are a thing for about 2 weeks around Halloween, not cinnamon (which does go well with apples though), but apples themselves. Today’s recipe is an idea for healthy, autumnal dessert for one. Living alone, I can’t always justify baking a whole cake and recipes that make a small portion are incredibly useful.

This apple crumble for one is quick and simple to make, pretty healthy (I used wholemeal flour for the crumble), and perfectly autumnal thanks to the cinnamon and vanilla.

For 1 serving you’ll need:

  • 1/2 apple
  • 1 teaspoon of raisins
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • a sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of soft butter
  • 1 teaspoon of rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of whole wheat flour (for gluten-free version replace wheat flour with certified gluten-free flour, e.g. oat)

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Peel and dice the apple and place it in a small ovenproof dish.
