Cut apples into thin wedges, keeping the skin on. Place into a large steamer basket over a pot of simmering water, sprinkle the cinnamon over the top and cover. Simmer for approximately 10 minutes or until apples are tender. Slice strawberries into quarters. Place steamed apple and strawberries into 3cm deep, 18 x 24cm (base measurement) baking dish and spread the fruit across the base surface. Make the crumble. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.
