Sticky Apple & Crunchy Oat Cinnamon Crumble Recipe

Is there anything quite like the smell of apple and cinnamon in Autumn?!

There is no fancy or modern twist to this recipe - just a wholesome, familiar celebration of our amazing UK apples baked into a comforting crumble. We’ve used good old fashioned Bramley apples for thick fluffy base, a couple of eating apples to add texture to the filling and added oats to the topping for extra extra crunch!

Make it gluten free by swapping the plain flour for gluten free plain flour.
