1-Hour Vegan Apple Crumble

I was craving something sweet (which is like, all the time) and I had no idea what I really wanted to make but I knew I wanted something...warm & gooey.

Looked in the fridge and I saw I had a few apples and I instantly started craving apple pie. In high school my friends and I had off campus lunch and we would go to Micky D's like...every...single...day (OMG) and I would always get one of their apple pies and a vanilla ice cream cone (they were like 2 for $1...HOW SWAY?) but it was perfect for my high school budget and the perfect unhealthy dessert.

I definetly didn't feel like making an apple pie, but I thought about making a crumble.

My Auntie Jackie used to make this peach dump cake when I was growing up, which is basically fruit in some sort of liquid on the bottom & cake mixture on top of that, so I thought I can use this same sort of method to create a "crumble".

My first time making this was an instant HIT. It was just, SO GOOD. We demolished the entire crumble in like, 2 hours. Sad, but true.

This crumble satisfied my sweet tooth, it is: sweet with a little tartness, crunchy and gooey at the same time, and perfect for the fall and winter nights when you want something warm.
