Description

Healthy Apple Crisp – a delicious apple crisp recipe that gluten-free, dairy-free and made with simple, real ingredients!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 large honey crisp apples (see notes)
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Oats
  • 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour
  • 3/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, room temp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Peel apples, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices (removing core).
  3. Spray a 9×9 baking pan with olive oil and layer apples inside.
  4. Add oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, kosher salt and butter to small food processor or medium-sized mixing bowl.

  9. Serve with dairy-free ice cream or dairy-free whipped cream.

Notes

  • Apples: this turns out great using only honeycrisp apples, but sometimes apple crisp tastes ever better if you use 3-4 different types of apples so you have a mix of flavors. You would still use a total of 4 large apples, but feel free to use up to 4 different kinds if you want!
  • Peeling Apples: If you don’t like peeling apples (who does?) then I love recommending this apple peeling attachment for a Kitchen Aid stand mixer!  So nice to have!
  • Baking Length: Recommended time is 30-35 minutes. If you prefer a more crisp apple in your apple crisp I would do 25 minutes or so – if you prefer a very soft apple in your apple crisp then I would do 35+ minutes!
  • Vegan Butter: For vegan butter I like this kind and this kind.  Substitutes include grassfed butter or ghee.
  • Coconut Sugar: Substitutes include date sugar or brown sugar.
