Peanut Butter Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble is a typical fall dessert, made from baked apples, covered in buttery crumbles. This version of apple crumble is even more delicious and tempting for every nut lover. If you want to prepare a quick, but special fall treat, Peanut Butter Apple Crumble is a great idea. Add a scoop of vanilla or caramel ice cream and get the best fall dessert ever. 

Total preparation time is 1 hour and 15 minutes, with 45 minutes baking time included. I suggest you make the apple crumble in a ceramic or glass baking tray so the apples don’t stick to the tray. 

My favourite apples for apple desserts are granny smith, but you can use others as well. Usually, I don’t peel the apples since peels don’t bother us. 

Peanut Butter Apple Crumble is made of apples, covered in peanut butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar, and crispy crumbles from peanut butter, regular butter, flour, and also brown sugar. Brown sugar is known for its special aroma in desserts, and therefore I prefer it from plain white sugar. 

Ingredients (8 servings)

Apple Filling

  • 8 apples
  • Tablespoon brown sugar
  • Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter

The Crumbles

  • 200 g flour
  • 80 g unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 120 g brown sugar


Wash and clean the apples and cut them into thin slices. Cover them in brown sugar, cinnamon, and peanut butter. Gently knead the mixture so every apple gets covered in some peanut butter and to avoid the lumps of peanut butter.

Mix the crumble ingredients. Knead it with hands until you get fine crumbles. 

Cover the ceramic or glass baking tray with butter. Arrange the apple mixture on the bottom and the crumbles on the top. Use forks to slowly press the crumbles so they stick together. 

Bake for 45 minutes on 180° C. 

Serve warm and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 

Enjoy the dessert!

If you don’t use the peanut butter apple crumble fresh, store it in fridge and use in 4 days.
