Easy gluten-free vegan apple crisp with a layer of warm tart cinnamon-spiced apples on the bottom and topped with a crunchy caramelized oat topping. This is the perfect dessert for a family gathering or when you need a warm cozy sweet treat.



Apple Filling

  • 7 large apples, peeled, cored, and chopped*
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free flour 1:1 baking blend
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup (120ml) vegan milk**

Crisp Topping

  • ½ cup (120g) vegan salted butter, melted
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar
  • 1 cup (105g) gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup (160g) gluten-free flour 1:1 baking blend
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder


Apple Filling

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and prepare a 13×9 inch pan or 2.5qt baking dish.
  2. Combine the chopped apples, sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl. Make sure all the apples are evenly coated.
  3. Spread the mixture in the bottom of the prepared pan/dish.
  4. Evenly pour the milk over the apple mixture.

Crisp Topping

  1. Combine all the topping ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine until a coarse sand-like texture is achieved.
  2. Spread the oat topping mixture over the prepared apples and bake for 40-45 minutes. The edges should be bubbling and caramelized and the top a golden brown.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve as is or with a scoop of dairy-free vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce. Enjoy!
  4. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.


* I prefer a tart firm apple like a Granny Smith or Honeycrisp but feel free to experiment with a combination of apple types. Chop the apples in different sizes to add yummy textures to the crisp.

** I used unsweetened almond milk, but any vegan alternative will work.
