This gluten free apple crisp is simple to make and so delicious! It makes a perfect Fall dessert.


  • 4 cups apples, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, organic
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, gluten free
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats, gluten free
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Dice the fruit and place it in the bottom of the baking dish.
  3. Melt the butter in the microwave in a large mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to the butter and stir well.
  4. Add in the dry ingredients (flour and oats) and stir until well combined.
  5. Put the mixture on top of the apples and bake for 30 minutes, until the fruit is tender and the topping is golden brown.
  6. Let the crisp rest to cool a bit before serving.


  • This crisp can be made with many different fruit options (strawberries, rhubarb, peaches, blueberries, etc.).
  • Double the batch and cook the crisp in a 9×13 pan.
  • You can make this with coconut oil or ghee instead of butter to make it lactose friendly or vegan, but the crisp topping will be a little flatter in consistency.
  • Serve with some vanilla ice cream or with whipping cream made with pure maple syrup.
