Crust/Crumble Topping

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • pinch of salt

Apple Filling

  • 2 large apples (i used one gala, one granny smith)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

Cinnamon Spice Glaze

  • 3 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1-2 splashes whole milk
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and a pinch of salt until well combined. 

  2. Butter an oven safe baking dish. Add 3/4 of the crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan and press down gently with your fingers, spreading it out evenly. Save 1/4 of the mixture and set aside. 

  3. Bake for 5 or so minutes to let the crust set. Meanwhile, dice your apples into very small pieces. Mix in a bowl with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves. 

  4. Once the crust has set, add your apples to the middle and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture on top of the apples. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until your apples are juicy and cooked through. 

For the Cinnamon Spice Glaze

  1. Mix together your powdered sugar, cinnamon with a splash of milk until you reach your desired consistency. 

  2. Let the apple crumb bars cool completely. Drizzle with the cinnamon spice glaze and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I used a 9x13 baking dish for this recipe. I would highly recommend using a smaller dish if you desire thicker crust. 

Make sure you dice your apples into very small pieces or they will make the bars fall apart!
