This is the first crumble this autumn and it is made of apples from the shop! Apples were of abundance last autumn and now the trees on my garden are bearing no fruit at all. This is because of the very early blooming followed with cold nights and snow. There were no bees to carry the pollen.
We love crumble pie and I try to vary it. Last week I experimented with peanut butter and cinnamon rolls. I filled the rolls with peanut butter and apple syrup (applestroop) instead of butter, sugar and cinnamon. The taste was new but not a bad one. This week I thought about replacing some of the butter with peanut butter in a crumble.this combination works even better.
This is what you need: olive oil to grease the pie form, 5 small apples (sliced), 2 tbsp brown sugar, 3 dl (a full cup) of oat meal, a handful of mixed nuts, 50 g butter and 3 tbsp of unsalted peanut butter.
Turn the oven to 175C. Place the apple slices in a greased pie form. Sprinkle on the sugar and then the oatmeal. Chop the nuts and sprinkle on. Melt the butter. Turn off the heat and add the peanut butter. Pour evenly on the pie. Bake for 20 minutes.
Serve with creamy joghurt or vanilla ice cream and enjoy! We certainly did and half the crumble was gone!
