- 1 Pie Crust dough disk (click for recipe)
- 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
- 3 pounds Pippin apples or Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, cut into scant 1/4-inch-thick slices
- 2 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
- 3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 7 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 400°F. Place rimmed baking sheet in bottom of oven to catch spills. Place sheet of parchment paper on work surface; lightly flour parchment. Place dough disk on parchment; sprinkle very lightly with flour. Cover with another sheet of parchment; roll to 9-inch round. Remove top parchment; sprinkle oats evenly over crust. Cover again with top parchment; roll to 12-inch round, rolling oats into crust. Remove top parchment. Using bottom parchment as aid, invert crust, oat side down, into 9-inch-diameter glass pie dish. Remove parchment. Press crust gently into pie dish. Turn dough overhang under, forming high-standing rim 1/2 inch above sides of dish. Crimp edges.
Toss all ingredients in large bowl. Let stand while preparing topping.
Blend first 6 ingredients in processor. Add butter; using on/off turns, blend until moist dough forms (mixture will resemble wet sand). Add oats; using on/off turns, mix briefly, leaving half of oats whole. Stir filling; transfer to crust, mounding in center. Sprinkle topping evenly over.
Bake pie until topping is golden, about 40 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Bake until apples are tender when pierced with small sharp knife, covering pie loosely with foil if topping and crust are browning too quickly, about 1 hour longer. Cool pie on rack until slightly warm, at least 1 hour. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Apple Pie is hands down, my most favorite pie to eat. Well and that Chocolate Cream Pie… But for fall, this pie is where it’s at! I love that it’s got some tart to it but sweet enough to balance it all out. What makes this apple pie for me, though, is the crunchy, crumbly oatmeal streusel on top!
Also known as a Dutch Apple Pie, this apple pie with oatmeal streusel topping is a fun way to add some texture and more spice to your apple pie. And the best thing is that this oatmeal streusel topping can be used in other recipes as well!
My recipe for an amazing apple pie calls for:
What is a Dutch Apple Pie
Often, when we think of apple pie, we think of an apple pie that is topped with pie crust (whether it be a whole sheet of pie crust or latticework or what have you). Another way to top an apple pie is with a gorgeous crumble. That’s a Dutch Apple Pie.
Typically, the crumb topping on a Dutch Apple Pie doesn’t include oatmeal. I like adding oatmeal to my crumble because it adds another layer of texture and oats go so well with apples!

My Savta (Hebrew for grandmother) and I had an unusually close relationship growing up that was forged through the time we spent together in her kitchen cooking and baking. I have such fond memories of baking desserts with her, particularly for the holidays as she prepared bountiful feasts. One of her staples was a table full of desserts, whose centerpiece on Rosh Hashanah would always be the most delicious apple pie. As I learned more and more about baking as a professional chef, I constantly sought out the perfect, most delicious apple pie, tart and cake recipes. Many exist! But this recipe combines my favorite elements of all three: the crisp tart shell, the rich flavor of caramelized apples found in pies and the crisp streusel topping that often garnishes cakes. This tart is a frequent dessert special at Osteria Morini in the fall, was served at the White House this past winter to the West Wing staff and has been enjoyed again and again by my friends and family. Every time I make this tart, and particularly around Rosh Hashanah, memories and the love of my grandmother pour into my mind, making the experience of baking this dessert even grander.
Apple Cinnamon Oat Streusel Muffins
As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
Moist and tender muffins full of tart, chunky apples and topped with a melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon and oat streusel. A great staple muffin recipe for fall!
Move over, pumpkin! There&rsquos a new sheriff in town, and it&rsquos come bearing cinnamon and nutmeg and cloves and all the best spices fall has to offer. I love you, pumpkin, but before we become all things peppermint, we have to give a shoutout to the next best flavor this season has to offer.
Apples in my granola, apples in my pie, apples in my crisp (with ice cream!), and even in my smoothie&hellip There is no bad time for apple treats, but the fall is especially great in the Northeast part of the country, because orchards are overflowing with apples and many people I know are filling their freezers with homemade applesauce and apple butter.
So why not bring November&rsquos Muffin of The Month to the breakfast table bearing fall&rsquos greatest produce: apples doused in cinnamon and spices, and, of course, a streusel topping.
But not just any streusel topping. An oat streusel topping. OH, yes. We will get to that!
Remember last month when I said reinventing the wheel is one of my very favorite things to do when it comes to recipes? I said that my classic cinnamon streusel coffee cake from several years ago yielded some amazing coffee cake muffins, so I jazzed the recipe up a bit to make October&rsquos chai streusel muffins.
One recipe (essentially), three different outcomes. It just works. Why mess with it?
We&rsquore doing the same thing again for these apple cinnamon oat streusel muffins, thanks to my tried and true apple cinnamon streusel bread recipe. That recipe is OLD.
But that doesn&rsquot make it any less awesome, because to be perfectly honest, that&rsquos a bread I&rsquove gone to time and time again this time of year to give to a friend who just had a baby, gift to someone who could use a little treat, or as a way to use up some apples that are taking up space on the kitchen counter.
It&rsquos quick, it&rsquos easy, and it tastes aaaaamazing.
So I turned it into muffins! And added a little something extra to the streusel because who doesn&rsquot love a little oat action up in their breakfast?
These apple cinnamon muffins are sweetened with deep notes of brown sugar and their moisture comes completely from oil. We&rsquore not using butter in the actual muffin batter, so the buttery flavor will come from all of that oat streusel topping.
In my original quick bread recipe, I used apple butter, which I had made homemade. I opted for applesauce in these muffins because I didn&rsquot have any apple butter on hand, and the swap worked beautifully.
So feel free to use applesauce or apple butter in your muffins. Bonus points if you make homemade applesauce in your InstantPot!
We&rsquore also going with the Granny Smith variety of apples because they lend the best texture and flavor to apple baked goods. If you&rsquore feeling something else apple-y, by all means, go for it.
You&rsquoll need about 2 cups of chopped apples, so adjust accordingly if you&rsquore using a smaller apple.
We loooooooved these muffins, and the toddler, especially, kept asking for more. He&rsquos become accustomed to trying new muffin flavors on the regular this year, and I think he might wonder where all the muffins went once 2019 rolls around and we have a new monthly recipe!
But until then, let&rsquos savor the last bites of November&rsquos muffin because before you know it, things will be all jolly and jingly up in here and apples will be long gone. Tuck this one away when you&rsquore feeling apples could use some love!
Apple Pie Oatmeal Muffins
Baked oatmeal in muffin form filled with warm fall spices, wholesome ingredients and all of the lovely flavors of apple pie. These Apple Pie Oatmeal Muffins are made healthy, dairy-free, gluten-free and low-calorie, so you can get your apple pie fix first thing in the morning!
If you couldn&rsquot tell, I have a bit of a muffin obsession. I love coming up with different creations almost as much as I love gobbling them up&hellip almost. This apple pie oatmeal muffin recipe is an adaptation from my Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Muffins. You guys love that recipe so much (it&rsquos even one of the most popular posts on the blog) that I decided to change things up slightly and bring you another variation you would enjoy.
There&rsquos no denying the pumpkin pie muffins are scrumptious, but these apple pie muffins definitely give them a run for their money. Chewy baked oatmeal texture and delightful fruity apple cinnamony flavor give these muffins a super comforting feel. They are wonderful served warm, but just as lovely enjoyed straight from the fridge. I&rsquove been grabbing them up before my workouts and as a sweet treat in the evenings. I really like them cold and they&rsquore even more flavorful after a day or two.
This recipe calls for apple pie spice. You can buy this at most grocery stores, make your own or just use cinnamon. To make apple pie spice, simply combine 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon allspice and 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves. I suggest using the apple pie spice because that signature apple pie flavor really shines!
Caramel Apple Crisp Pie
Do you ever have a problem deciding which dessert to make? I definitely do. There are far too many delicious dessert recipes out there waiting to be made so sometimes it&rsquos hard to choose.
We should probably just start having dessert every night of the week so I can try all those recipes calling my name! Or&hellip.maybe not. That could be a bad plan.
I think pie is probably my favourite dessert though. Even though I have a hard time choosing, if there&rsquos pie available that&rsquos likely the dessert I&rsquom going for. Pie beats cake every time in my opinion. Even chocolate cake, which is saying something coming from me.
And now I feel like going and making chocolate pie &ndash the best of both worlds.
Not now though, there&rsquos still half of this caramel apple crisp pie sitting in the kitchen and we definitely don&rsquot need more pie available!
This caramel apple crisp pie was absolutely fantastic. I had a bunch of apples in the fridge that needed to be used up, and this pie was the perfect way to use them. I couldn&rsquot decide between apple pie and apple crisp &ndash so I just made both. The best of both worlds &ndash that&rsquos what this dessert is. Flaky pastry, tender spiced apples, crunchy oat streusel topping, and salted caramel sauce &ndash it&rsquos a fantastic way to finish off a meal.
Top a slice with vanilla ice cream and drizzle it with a bit more caramel sauce for the perfect dessert.
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if your blend already contains it)
1/3 cup (73 g) packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup (50 g) granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
8 tablespoons (112 g) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 recipe gluten-free pie crust, chilled
2 1/2 pounds (about 5 large apples) Granny Smith apples (or other tart and firm apple), peeled, cored and sliced thin
1/2 cup (100 g) granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Gluten Free Apple Pie &ndash Crumble Topping
The thing with Dutch Apple Pie that sets it apart is the crumb / streusel topping. There are tons of variations on this recipe out there, but today I&rsquom sharing my method.
Start working on your crumble topping after you placed your crust in the oven.
In the same food processor you used for the pie crust combine all topping ingredients and pulse a few times until the mixture is well combined and looks crumbly.
And you&rsquore done! Place the container in the freezer until is ready to use.
Apple Crisp Recipe
This is one of those basic desserts everyone should try, because it’s such a delicious recipe that will receive rave reviews from guests every single time you serve it.
The traditional apple crisp recipe below was originally my grandmother’s, and it’s been one of our favorites that we’ve been making every year since as long as I can remember.

Apple Crumble Or Crisp?
Fruit crisps or crumbles both include a layer of fruit on the bottom topped with a crumbly streusel made from flour, sugar, and butter.
Originally crisps would contain oats while crumbles would not however in modern times the two words can pretty much be used interchangeably.
In contrast, an apple cobbler has a thicker batter resembling drop biscuits, dumplings, scones, or pie crust, with no oats.
Apple Oatmeal Crisp Ingredients
What type of apples work best? Tart and crisp varieties of apple are generally best for baking, such as Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Braeburn, Pink Lady, or Fuji. These will stay firm instead of becoming mushy when baked.
Other crisp ingredients: Along with the apples, you will also need cinnamon, rolled or quick oats, flour, butter or oil, and sugar (unrefined if desired). See below for special diet and allergy-friendly variations of the recipe.
Optional additions: Feel free to add a half cup of chopped walnuts, raisins or dried cranberries, almonds, pecans, or shredded coconut before baking. It’s also nice with a little orange or lemon zest.
For Vegan Apple Crisp
Use either the oil option or one of the many vegan butter spreads available in health food stores and regular grocery stores in the US.
Whole Foods, Target, and Walmart, should also carry at least one or two vegan butter spreads such as Melt, Earth Balance, Miyoko’s Creamery, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, Country Crock, or Smart Balance Light. While shortening isn’t as healthy but will work if it’s all you have on hand, and Crisco and Spectrum are both vegan.
Top vegan fruit crisps with dairy free ice cream or Coconut Whipped Cream.
For A Gluten Free Fruit Crisp
Oat flour, almond flour, or gluten free all purpose can be used instead of wheat flour. I haven’t tried sorghum or rice flour yet. If you experiment before we do, be sure to report back.
Certified gluten free oats can be used in this healthy apple crisp for those with Celiac disease or if you’re unsure and want to be on the safe side. We haven’t tried but think quinoa flakes should also work.
