So I received a phone call recently from my daughter…

Jenn: “Mom, where is your apple crisp recipe?”

Me: “What do you mean?”

Jenn: “You have Caramel Apple Flan and Apple Pie on your site, but where is your apple crisp recipe?”

Me: ” I thought I put that on ages ago… Oops, sorry. Let me get right on that.”

Apple Crisp

So that was the jist of the conversation… Apple Crisp was one of the first recipes that I converted because it was so easy to do. I assumed that I had already posted it… Guess I shouldn’t assume things.

Here is my Apple Crisp recipe… It has evolved to be healthier that it used to be, as well as allergy free. I add the water in with the apples to make somewhat of a built in caramel sauce.

Apple Crisp (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1/2 c brown rice flour

1 c. gluten free oats

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

3/4 c.palm sugar (Or desired granular sugar)

1/2 c. coconut oil-melted ( margarine or butter if not vegan or dairyfree)

Mix together and set aside.

6 c. apples- peeled and sliced (cortland or granny smith)

1 tsp. cinnamon

3 Tbsp. palm sugar (Or desired granular sugar)

3 Tbsp. water

Place sliced apples, cinnamon, palm sugar and water into the bottom of a greased 2 quart baking dish.(9by13 will work great). Sprinkle topping over apple mixture.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until apples are tender. You may want to check on the tenderness after 30 minutes. Time depends on the variety of apples as well as the freshness.


Serve warm with ice cream or Whipped Coconut Cream.

  2. This had awesome flavor! Definitely helped use up some slightly older apples we had from our CSA share. I did a couple things differently: I only used a 1/2 cup of sugar for the topping and 2 tablespoons over the apples in the pan. This was plenty of sweetness for me. I also used fresh apple cider in the bottom of the pan instead of water as well as a little bit extra cinnamon over the apples. The only thing I’m slightly disappointed in is I left the pan in for the minimum recommended time, and the apples came out way too soft–I like a little bit of firmness to them. Otherwise great.

    • I am really glad that you like it 🙂 My family like the apples nice and soft. Timing would probably also depend on the type and freshness of apples.
