Individual Apple Streusel

Do you ever want a good dessert but don’t want to make an entire sheet of brownies or a full batch of cookies? Well, good news! Today I am sharing a recipe for individual apple streusel that is ready in just about 30 minutes. Technically, 1 apple serves 2 people but you can easily half the recipe or, if you’re really ambitious, (and hungry) have it all yourself! Don’t skip on the vertical slices in the apple halves- they ensure that the coating and streusel permeate throughout the apple!

Total Time Required: 30 minutes

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yields: 2 servings


  • 1 apple (Fuji, Pink Lady, Honeycrisp)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Sprinkle of sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Peel the apple and remove the core
  3. Lay the apple cut-side down and carefully make 4-5 shallow vertical slices (about halfway through the apple- don’t cut all the way through!) on each apple half and place on a greased baking sheet
  4. Melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter and add 1 teaspoon of brown sugar. Drizzle or use a pastry brush to coat the outside of the apples
  5. Bake for 20 minutes
  6. Prepare the streusel by combining remaining butter and brown sugar, oats, almond butter, maple syrup, cinnamon and sea salt in a bowl
  7. Spoon streusel over top of apple halves (it is okay if some falls onto the pan) and bake for 5-8 minutes or until golden brown
  8. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or by itself!
