When I think of fall, I think of pumpkin spice and warm apple pie fresh out of the oven. With cinnamon, brown sugar, and juicy apples, these wonderful treats will get you ready for fall. I’m always on the lookout for simple recipes, and when I saw these fall snacks, I was immediately hooked. These quick and easy recipes are great for warming up on a crisp autumn day!

Recipe #1: Apple Crumble
4 Granny Smith apples (cut in half)
¼ cup olive or canola oil
1 stick unsalted cold butter (melted)
8 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup granola
1 pint vanilla ice cream

1. Heat the grill to medium (an oven may also be used).
2. Place apples in a medium bowl and toss with the oil.
3. Then place the apples on the grill, cut-side down and grill until browned.
4. Flip the apples over and continue to grill until nicely browned. Remove from grill and allow to cool.
5. Once they are cool enough, core and cut the apples into wedges. Place the apple wedges into a bowl and toss with ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, 4 tablespoons light brown sugar, and ½ stick of melted butter.
6. In another bowl, toss the remaining butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar with the granola.
7. Place one large scoop of ice cream into 4 bowls and top with the apple mixture. Finish by sprinkling the granola mixture over the top.
