Recipe: Super Easy Apple Blueberry Crisp Crumble without Crust

We were supposed to head out for dinner when the girls came back but because they were tired from flying, I decided to bake something simple and easy so we could just pig out in front of the telly and enjoy :) Okay maybe it was not that easy because I did not have an apple corer so I had to do everything with just a knife. Hmmm Im not attempting this again without an apple corer the next time and I ran out of butter so I substituted with olive oil for some parts of the crumble. Glad it still turned out alright. Hope the girls liked it :)


1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces/olive oil
1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

5 Granny Smith Apples (peeled, cored, and cut into 1 inch chunks)
1 cup fresh blackberries or raspberries
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon lemon zest
3 tablespoons white granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 190 degrees. Place all the topping ingredients (flour, sugars, spices, butter, oats and nuts) in a large bowl and whisk until the mixture is crumbly and there are no large pieces of butter visible.  Set aside while you prepare the filling.

Place the apple chunks in a large bowl, along with the berries (if using) and lemon zest. Toss with the lemon juice and sugar.

Transfer to your prepared baking dish Spread the topping evenly over the apples.

Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes until the topping is golden brown.

Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 30 minutes before serving or eat straight from the dish like we did! :D
