Crumble Topping (For Oatmeal)
In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar and softened butter.
- 1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup salted butter - softened
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Add all other ingredients and mix with clean hands until well combined and clumpy.
Spread mixture onto a baking sheet and bake at 325 for 30 minutes, stirring once mid-way through cooking. Break apart any clusters that are too large.
Mixture will become crisp after it's cooled for several minutes.
Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
Sprinkle over hot oatmeal.
* If using unsalted butter, add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the dry ingredients.
A great way to add pizzazz to a bowl of oatmeal. Just a little adds a nice crunch and an oatmeal cookie-like flavor.
