This Gluten-Free Apple Crisp dessert is made up of healthier ingredients like organic, gluten-free oats and flour, coconut sugar and warm spices like freshly ground nutmeg. It is loaded with apples and the oat topping has a deliciously toasty, caramel flavor that will make you smile. Plus, it’s easy to make, and is super cozy and delicious!


Units Scale
  • Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil
  • 5 medium Apples, peeled and sliced (equivalent to 4 full cups)
  • 3/41 cup Organic Coconut Sugar
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Organic GF Old Fashioned Rolled Oats, Whole Grain
  • 1/2 cup Homemade Organic GF Oat Flour, Whole Grain, spooned and leveled (see notes below)
  • 3/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 1/4 tsp Redmond Real Fine Sea Salt
  • 1/3 cup Miyoko’s Creamery® European Style Cultured Vegan Unsalted Butter (softened)


  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 375° degrees F. Lightly oil an 8-by-8-by-2-inch baking dish with avocado oil.
  2. Filling: Add the apple slices to the dish. Set aside.
  3. Topping: To a medium size bowl, mix the other ingredients together. (Personally, once it’s somewhat combined, I like to finish mixing everything together with my fingers).
  4. Put it all together: Sprinkle the oatmeal mixture evenly over the apples.
  5. Bake: Bake for 30 minutes or until the apples are tender and the topping is golden brown. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
  6. (Optional) ice cream recommendation: Cosmic Bliss Organic Plant-Based Madagascan Vanilla Bean
  7. (Optional) topping recommendation: 5-Ingredient Vegan Caramel Sauce


  • If possible, use all organic ingredients.
  • Butter: It needs to be soft but not melted.
  • Apples: If using tart, green apples you many need a bit more coconut sugar to balance it out.
  • Sugar: If you want a sweeter dessert, add 1 cup of sugar. If you want it less sweet then only add 3/4 cup.
  • Oats: I always buy organic oats, because buying organic ensures that the oats are not sprayed with glyphosate, which is an active ingredient found in Roundup. (Just some food for thought). Here is the brand I buy. Bob’s Red Mill ® Organic Gluten-Free Whole Grain Rolled Oats
  • Oat Flour: I make my own flour, because I can’t find organic gluten-free oat flour in stores. It is super simple, too. All I do, is add a couple of cups of my store bought oats to my high powered blender and pulse until it turns into flour. From start to finish, it takes about one minute.
  • Note: Don’t use cast iron because it will react with the apples. The cast iron in this post was used just for pictures.
