This Apple Crumble Dessert in a Jar is an easy apple dessert, made right inside of mason jars.


  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter (12 tablespoons, chilled and cut into pieces)
  • 3 lbs Granny Smith apples (about 7 apples, peeled, cored)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 8 pint wide-mouth half- canning jars
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional, caramel sauce, and/or whipped cream)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Using a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingers, work the butter pieces into the mixture. Set aside.
  3. Cut each cored and peeled apple in half. Cut each half into thin slices (no larger than 1/4″ thickness). Place apple slices in a bowl and toss apples with lemon juice. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup brown sugar and toss to combine.
  4. Place canning jars on a large baking sheet. Divide apple slices among each jar. Top each jar of apples with about 1/3 cup of streusel. Divide any remaining streusel among all the jars. With the handle end of a spoon, press some of the streusel down into the apples.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until top is golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Serve slightly warm, if desired. Top with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and/or caramel syrup, if you wish.
  6. Canning jar bands and lids can be placed on cooled Apple Crumbles to save them in a refrigerator.
