The best and easiest gluten free apple crisp with an almond flour and oat cinnamon crumb topping! 



For the filling:

  • 4 cups Gala apples, peeled and thinly sliced (about 4 apples)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the topping:

  • 1 cup fine almond flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp cold butter, cut into small cubes

For serving:


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the apple slices with all of the other filling ingredients until well combined. Pour mixture into a 9″ pie dish and spread out evenly (use a spatula to get all of the mixture out of the bowl). 
  3. In the same bowl you mixed the apples in, mix together the almond flour, oats, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and sea salt. Add the maple syrup and cold cubed butter, then use clean hands to mix the butter into the mixture until everything is evenly incorporated.
  4. Spread the crumble topping on top of the apples. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until apples are bubble and topping is slightly browned (but not burnt). Serve with ice cream and caramel sauce (optional) and enjoy!
