Join us as we create a gluten-free apple crisp that's as heartwarming as it is delicious, perfect for sharing with loved ones or savoring in solitude.


For the Apple Filling:

  • 6 cups of sliced and peeled apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (or a gluten-free alternative)

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

For the Gluten-Free Crumble Topping:

  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter (or dairy-free alternative), cold and cubed


1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

2. Prepare the Apple Filling:

  • In a large bowl, combine the sliced and peeled apples, granulated sugar, cornstarch, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and fresh lemon juice. Toss the mixture until the apples are evenly coated.

  • Transfer the apple mixture to a greased 9x13-inch baking dish or a similar-sized ovenproof dish.

3. Make the Crumble Topping:

  • In a separate bowl, combine the gluten-free rolled oats, gluten-free all-purpose flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and salt.

  • Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture becomes crumbly and resembles coarse meal.

4. Assemble and Bake:

  • Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the apple mixture in the baking dish.

5. Bake:

  • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown, and the apple filling is bubbling around the edges.

6. Cool and Serve:

  • Allow the gluten-free apple crisp to cool for a few minutes before serving.

7. Enjoy:

  • Serve your warm Gluten-Free Apple Crisp as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or dairy-free ice cream for an extra treat.

This Gluten-Free Apple Crisp is a delightful dessert that captures the essence of fall with its sweet and spiced apple filling and crisp, buttery topping. It's perfect for enjoying on a cozy evening or as a comforting treat for gatherings with family and friends.
