Yield :
4 servings



  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced thin
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup apple juice


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup granola
  • 1/4 cup Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided into four
  • 4 tablespoons store-bought caramel sauce, divided


  1. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl combine apples, half of lemon juice and flour. Toss to coat evenly. Add 1 tablespoon unsalted butter to skillet. Pour in apple mixture and sauté apples about 5 minutes stirring frequently for even cooking.
  3. To the skillet, add cinnamon, nutmeg, and apple juice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly spray four 5-ounce oven-proof ramekins. Scoop apple mixture evenly into each ramekin.
  5. In a medium bowl combine oats, granola, brown sugar and salt and mix thoroughly. Distribute topping (4 tablespoons each) the ramekins. Place one half-tablespoon butter on top of each ramekin. Place all ramekins on a baking sheet. Bake 25 minutes, until golden and bubbly.
  6. Drizzle store-bought caramel sauce on top of each ramekin and enjoy.
