Gluten-Free Apple Crisp


Serves 6

This apple crisp is so delicious and a favorite with kids.  It’s great for an afterschool snack and can also be eaten as a healthy breakfast!



  • 5 Medium Tart Apples 
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil or Ghee
  • 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

For the crumble topping:

  • 1 cup gluten-free Oats
  • ½ cup Almond Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 2-4 tablespoons Maple Syrup or Honey (depending on how sweet you want it)
  • 2-3 tablespoons Almond Milk
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted


Prepare the filling:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly oil an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish.  
  • Core apples and cut into thin slices and place in bowl. 
  • Toss apples with cinnamon and nutmeg until thoroughly coated.  Add maple syrup and coconut oil or ghee and toss to coat evenly.  
  • Place apple mixture into oiled pan and set aside.

Prepare the crumble topping:

  • In a medium bowl combine the oats, almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  
  • Add the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and almond milk and mix well until everything is completely coated and the consistency is slightly sticky.  If it’s too liquidy, add a little more flour or oats to soak up the moisture.  If it’s too dry, add a little more milk.  
  • Once the crumble is ready, sprinkle evenly over the apple filling
  • Bake for 40-50 min, or until top is browned.  Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy!
