This scrumptious and effortless Swedish apple pie is made with tender apple slices sweetened with molasses and baked under a crunchy oatmeal topping.


  • 4 cups apple, peeled, cored and sliced ¼” thick (about 45 apples)
  • 3 tbsp Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup (170g) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¾ cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (85g) rolled oats
  • ½ cup (65g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (60g) chopped walnuts
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9 or 10” deep dish pie plate. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the apple slices, molasses and cinnamon until evenly coated. Transfer the mixture into the prepared pie plate.
  3. In the same bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients until combined. Spoon the batter evenly over the apple mixture.
  4. Bake for 45 – 60 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the top is golden brown.


Serve warm, room temperature, or cold with a dollop of whipped cream, warm vanilla cream sauce, or a scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.

Leftovers can be tightly cover with saran wrap or transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days.

To make in advance – Prepare the whole pie, cover, and refrigerate up to one day in advance. When ready to bake, bring the pie to room temperature by placing it on the counter for 1 hour, then bake as instructed.
