Simple Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

What’s better than apple pie and a whole lot easier to make? Apple crisp! This apple crisp recipe is gooey on the inside, and tender but crisp on top. It’s made with wholesome ingredients, like old-fashioned oats, almond meal, pecans, honey, and of course, lots of fresh apples.

On a cool fall day, there’s nothing better the smell of this apple crisp baking in the oven. This homemade dessert would also be the perfect ending to your Thanksgiving supper. This is my favorite apple crisp recipe, and it just happens to be gluten free and healthier than the rest. This recipe is made with significantly less sugar than most apple crisps, but tastes just as good. In fact, I’d say it’s even better!

This crisp turned out great for me when I made it a few years ago, but I heard that it didn’t turn out as well for some of you. This stuff keeps me up at night.

I’ve retested and tweaked this recipe, and it’s now better than ever. I’m so pleased to hear that with these updates, this crisp has been turning out perfectly in your kitchens.


Apple filling

2 ¼ pounds Granny Smith apples (about 5 large or 7 small), cored and sliced into ¼” thick wedges

⅓ cup honey or maple syrup

¼ cup water, or bourbon or brandy, or apple cider or apple juice (I like 2 tablespoons bourbon and 2 tablespoons water)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 teaspoons arrowroot starch or 1 tablespoon cornstarch

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground allspice or nutmeg

Oat, almond meal and pecan topping

1 cup old-fashioned oats (use certified gluten-free oats for a gluten-free crisp)

½ cup firmly packed almond meal or almond flour

½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional but recommended)

⅓ cup lightly packed coconut sugar or brown sugar

¼ teaspoon fine sea salt

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

¼ cup plain yogurt (Greek or regular)
