This apple crisp makes 6 servings of yum! Granny Smith or Empire apples are a good choice with this recipe.

Serve it warm out of the oven, and add a dollop of coconut whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if you feel like making it extra special.

Gluten-free Apple Crisp Recipe

Gluten-free Apple Crisp
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
  • 4 cups sliced pared tart apples
  • ⅔ to ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup gluten-free flour
  • ½ cup gluten-free oats
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon, or to taste (I use more)
  • ¾ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅓ cup butter softened or melted
  • Pumpkin pie spice (optional)
  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Lightly oil a square 8x8 pan.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients thoroughly.
  4. Sprinkle over apples and top with pumpkin pie spice powder if desired.
  5. Bake 30 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.
This is excellent served with our recipe for Coconut Whipped Cream or Vanilla Ice Cream.
*Dessert Bar Option - You can also double the topping. Press half into the bottom and use the other half as directed above if you like more of a dessert bar.

    I did not think white flour was good for you gluten free also.I SEE YOU USE IT ALOT WHY NOT ALMOND FLOUR OR COCONUT FLOUR??

      Hi Gigi, we never recommend white, processed, bleached flour.

      If the gluten-free flours happen to be lighter in color than others you may be used to that’s because it’s made from tapioca / potato starch.

      You can use almond or coconut flour, but they are really tricky to bake with and usually have to be included as one of several flours, not a standalone solution. 🙂

    Could I use stevia instead of coconut sugar?

      Yep! It will change the consistency a little so you’ll have to experiment by adding a little more flour or something with a little “substance.”

      Stevia – you’ll just need to increase the flour for more volume. 🙂
