Banana Filling

  • 2 tbsp Butter Unsalted
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 cup Apple juice Or any other fruit juice of your choice
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 5 Bananas Cut into big chunks

Crumble Topping

  • 3/4 cup Old-fashioned oats Cannot be replaced with quick oats
  • 1/2 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Butter Cold, Unsalted, Cut into cubes
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Pecans Or walnuts, Roughly chopped



  • Prepare the banana filling by heating butter in a nonstick saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add brown sugar, cinnamon powder and mix until sugar dissolves completely.
  • Add apple juice, vanilla extract and cook for 1-2 minutes or until mixture thickens a bit.
  • Remove from heat and pour this sugar mixture in an oven-safe rectangle baking dish (Dimensions: 7x11 or 8x12).
  • Add banana chunks and mix them gently so they are coated in the sugar mixture.
  • Spread them out evenly in the dish. Keep aside.
  • Prepare the topping by mixing together oats, flour, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon powder, vanilla extract in a large bowl. Use a pastry cutter or a large fork to cut the butter into the flour/oat mixture until you have a crumbly mixture. Do not add milk or water to thin it out.
  • Stir in chopped pecans.
  • Spread this mixture on top of the banana filling evenly.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let it cool for about 15 minutes.
  • Then, serve with whipped cream.


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
