Apple Crumble

When I saw Ann's post of this easy, healthy and delicious apple crumble, I love it. Thanks to Ann for sharing this.

For past few months,  my girl has been hinting "mom, pls don't put too much butter in your bakes ... I wanna cut down my weight ... few pounds". Or "mom, can make some low-fat fruity light snacks?".
Mom : "but you're not fat ... it's good to eat well anyway, that's why I used skimmed milk, low fat spread for most desserts ... I hardly bake rich butter cake or rich chocolate cakes or your favourite brownies lately ... "

 I made this crumble for our breakfast and glad that she liked it together with a glass of skimmed milk for a healthy breakfast meal to start the day.

Apple Crumble
4 Green apples (I used normal red apples cos my girl doesn't like green apples)
3 tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon powder
1/4tsp Salt
2 tbsp Light Muscovado sugar or brown sugar
4 tbsp Oatmeal
1/3 cup Flour
30g Butter, cut to cubes (I used low-fat spread)

Peel, core and slice apple to wedges. (I cut into small cubes).

Mix sugar, cinnamon powder and salt on to apples and mix well with your hand. Pour apples into foil cups. (I used 4 ramekins).

Rub light muscovado sugar, oatmeal, flour and butter together to crumble with your finger tips and place on top of apples.

Bake at preheated oven at 170C for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
