Apple Crumble for Two

Like apple pie? Try these instead for a warm, hearty treat that’s much lower in fat and calories.

2 medium apples-rome, fuji, gala all work well
4 tablespoons rolled oats (*use gluten-free oats such as Bob's Red Mill if you are on a gluten-free diet)
2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour(OMIT the flour if you are on a gluten-free diet)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, chilled
ICB spray or cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Core and peel the apples and cut into half inch chunks. Spray a medium sized pan with ICB, or cooking spray (or nothing if you are using a non-stick), put in the apples and sauté on high heat for about 5 minutes. While the apples are cooking put the oats, (flour), one of the tablespoons of brown sugar and half a teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl and mix together. Cut the chilled butter into small cubes and work into the four mixture by hand until a crumbled texture is reached. Once the apples are slightly tender add the other tablespoon of brown sugar and half teaspoon of cinnamon to them and stir well until they are uniformly coated and the sugar has melted. Add the apples to two small ramikens or small oven safe mugs/dishes and sprinkle the crumble on top. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until crumble is very lightly browned/crispy.
