Whole weath flour (or AP, or whatever you fancy)
Light brown sugar (or white…)
Flax seeds (very optional but I like to use it)
Apples (or pears, or a mixture of the 2…)
Light brown sugar
Prepare the crust: in a food processor place flour, spices (to your tasting), salt (a pinch), oats (about 1/3 of the amount of flour) and a little each of flax seeds and walnuts (omit or use other nuts). Pulse until combined. Add the sugar, again to your tasting (if you have no clue add about half the quantity you have in your food processor by now) Now get the butter and add little by little (1 tablespoon more or less), pulse and add more butter until you’re happy with the texture (some like it crispier- add less butter, some prefer it more consistent- add more butter and let the dough bond a little).
For the filling: Peel and dice the apples in small chunks. Toss with a bit of cinnamon and sugar to taste.
Assemble: Get about 1/3-1/2 of the mixture and pat down on a baking dish. Cover with the apples and top them with the remaining crumble mixture. Sprinkle with more rolled oats for extra crispiness. Bake at 180ºC (350ºF) until it’s golden brown.
