Ingredients: 

FILLING
2 large or 4 medium apples, peeled and diced (about 4 cups)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fair trade organic powdered sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch

CRUMBLE
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup rolled oats (not instant)
½ cup whole wheat flour
½ cup organic raw sugar
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon slivered almonds

Directions: 

1. Preheat oven to 375˚F and brush six 4-ounce ramekins with canola oil.

2. In a bowl, toss apples with lemon juice, organic powdered sugar, and cornstarch. Distribute fruit mixture evenly among ramekins.

3. Make the topping: Combine oil, butter, rolled oats, flour, sugar, spices, salt, and almonds in a medium bowl and work together with a fork or your fingertips until the ingredients become crumblike. Distribute the crumbs evenly over the fruit ramekins.

4. Bake until the topping is a golden brown, about 40 minutes. Let the crumble cool for about 15 minutes before serving.
