Weekends are all about taking a break from the regular hustle and bustle of life and spending some quality time with your family, over food obviously. If you are one of the people who want to try and make something unique every weekend, you might run out of options pretty soon. But if you like fruit-based desserts, you can try making an apple crumble bar. 

To add some twist to the nostalgic apple crumble bars, you can add some spices and flavours and make the most out of your weekend. So, why don’t you can try adding a surprise element to the tarty apples and a buttery oat crumble? Read on and explore some of the best spices you can add to apple crumbles and get cooking.

Classic Apple Crumble Bar

One of the most loved flavours of the traditional dessert is the classic apple crumble bar. If you make it over the weekend for your friends or family, you can surely bring in the Christmas vibes on a regular day. To make the classic, you can make a buttery crust of oats and then top it with apples mixed with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. You can serve the bars warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to balance the flavours.

Chocolate Apple Crumble Bar

Another loved version of the apple crumble bar is the chocolate one. People who are die-hard chocoholics should try making the filling with sliced apples, powdered sugar, and cinnamon. For the crunchy crumble, you can mix oats, flour, cocoa powder, some sugar as per taste, butter, and chopped pieces of dark chocolate. You can then bake it till the apples are tender and enjoy the surprising chocolate flavour in every bite.

Caramel Apple Crumble Bars

The addition of caramel to any dessert can make it indulgent. To make caramel apple crumble bars, you just need to add homemade or store-bought caramel sauce to the filling before adding the crumbly oats layer. You cannot even imagine the magic that the layer of mouth-melting caramel wrapped around the apples would create.

Ginger Apple Crumble Bars

Adding a warm touch of ginger to the apple crumble bars is another way of adding some twist to the classic dessert. While making the sweet apple filling, grate some ginger and mix it well. After mixing the ingredients for the crumble topping like oats, sugar, butter, dry fruits and nuts, you can bake the crumble bars to perfection. To balance the warm flavour of ginger, you can add some whipped cream and relish the dessert.

Bourbon Pecan Apple Crumble Bars

To add a crunchy twist to the classic apple crumble bars, add lots of chopped pecans. If you are making these crumble bars for adults, you can also add a hint of bourbon to give them a boozy addition. The rich filling will balance the crunchy crumble layer and give you a sumptuous and boozy dessert to help you unwind on the weekend.
