Apple crisp is a classic fall dessert. Incredibly easy to make and loved by the masses! A great way to use up some apples after going apple picking. This gluten-free and vegan apple crisp is a healthier way to make the famed dessert.

Coconut Sugar is used instead of the more refined brown sugar. Whole oats flakes and a gluten-free free flour mix replace the refined white flour usually used. And finally coconut oil replaces the beloved butter.

Can you dig it? Just go ahead and give it a try. Desserts you can feel good about are a great thing. This doesn’t mean you should indulge all the time! However I would be lying if I said I didn’t have this for breakfast the other day. Apples, cinnamon, oats. All part of a delicious and healthy breakfast.

I used a gluten-free flour blend that I bought at Costco made by Cloud 9 bakery. This isn’t the first time my gf and I used this flour and we have been quite happy with the results. Cloud 9 is a specialty bakery in British Columbia and they claim that their flour is their secret ingredient.  I would recommend picking some up if you can find it.

    I am confused I thought oats wasn’t gluten free?

      A lot of oats are contaminated by wheat. Oats themselves do not contain gluten. Just make sure you buy oats that are clearly labeled gluten free.

  2. I also understand some people react to oats even if they are gluten free because they are simmilar in stucture or something like that. I made this apple crisp recipe for the reason that I avoid butter and wanted to use coconut oil. I doubled the topping however this time I think it wasn’t needed as there was ton. I used local organic macintosh apples, organic freshly squeezed lemon juice, organic cane sugar as I didn’t have coconut sugar on hand, cassia bark powder which is sold as cinnimon (not sure how to find the real deal), wheat free rolled oats, white and brown rice flour for the mix, no gum or starch added, no nutmeg because of its intoxicant properties but i added less freshly ground organic allspice in its place, Ziggy Marley’s coconut oil and grey sea salt. I was lazy and didn’t melt the oil so I had to use more and the texture of the topping turned out pretty dry. I’d like to try a 100% healthy sugar free version of apple crisp next!
