- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

- Preheat oven to 350 F and grease 5-6 small ramekins (or 1 regular size pie dish) with nonstick baking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt, then stir to combine. Divide evenly between ramekins (or pour into single pie dish).
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Pour in melted butter, then stir until a crumbly mixture forms.
- Cover as much of the apples as you’d like with topping, then bake at 350 F for 40-45 minutes. Apples should be tender and crumb topping should be crisp. Serve with ice cream!
