Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Get into the fall spirit with deliciously nutty, cinnamon Gluten Free Apple Crisp! Add a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream on top for a perfect dessert!

One of the things I’m excited to do this fall is go apple picking! I have no clue if there are apple orchards out here in California, but I’m sure we can find something apple-y to do. 

Gluten Free Apple Crisp

I remember when Caleb was 1ish we went apple picking and much to our horror he kept picking apples up off the ground and taking bites. No matter how much we explained we had to pick. then collect. then pay. then wash. then eat. It was wayy too many steps for a 1 year old to comprehend and we ended up buying a basket of apples all with adorable little bites taken from them. 

Hopefully now, five(ish) years later we’ll ALL be able conceptualize the whole apple picking process and control our humanly instinct to eat juicy apples immediately.

I have these delicious apple crumble bars on the blog, and also this caramel apple pie, but I felt like I really wanted to share a no-fuss apple crisp that is freshly baked, warm from the oven, and with a deliciously melty scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. 

Want to make it next level? Make this homemade dairy free and vegan caramel sauce and drizzle it on top!! Omg I just salivated a little thinking about it. So let’s make a cinnamon-y Gluten Free Apple Crisp that I know will be a staple in your house this fall. 

Gluten Free Apple Crisp

First, make the apple filling. Peel the skin off the apples and thinly slice them. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and place the apples in a steaming basket over the boiling water and cover. Steam for about five minutes until the apples are softened but still appear crunchy and maintain their shape. 

While the apples are steaming, place the pecans (any mix of nut and seeds that sounds good to you will work), almond flour, salt, and coconut sugar in food processor. Process until chopped up and combined, about 25 – 20 seconds. Add the coconut oil, peanut butter, and vanilla. Process again until it the mixture balls up.

In an oven-proof skillet, press 2/3 of the nutty mixture into the bottom of the pan. In a medium bowl, mix together the steamed apples, agave nectar (honey or maple syrup works), and cinnamon. Transfer the apples into the skillet on top of the first layer of crust. 

Then, crumble the remaining nutty mixture on top of the apples. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Add a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream on top and enjoy!!
