Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Try this delicious gluten free apple crisp! We have an grove near us where we got to go pick apples. What better time to make my favorite dessert?

We had a blast picking this beautiful fruit. It was raining on and off. We had to reach up in the trees with these picking devices. They had claws on them and a little basket to catch the fruit. Every time you got an apple you would also get a little shower. My girls had a great time and my oldest actually picked quite a few with her picker. I held up my younger daughter to grab some off the tree all by herself.


I used mostly sucanat in this recipe. It has such an amazing flavor. I took it to a friend's house for dinner and everyone loved it. It has whipping cream on top. I blended some cream in my Blendtec then added a little organic sugar.

5 medium apples, cut and peeled

1/2 cup sucanat

1/4 cup organic sugar

1/2 cup gluten free oats

1/2 cup tapioca flour (or arrowroot flour)

1/3 cup organic salted butter (softened)

3/4 tsp nutmeg

3/4 tsp cinnamon

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spread apples in a 8 x 8 glass baking dish or large glass pie dish. Combine all other ingredients in a bowl. Spread the topping over the apples and bake for 30 minutes.


My husband is not a health food person like I am. He eats a lot of junk. I am happy to say that he loved this recipe even though he was doubtful at first that I was using sucanat instead of brown sugar.

It is difficult to get kids to eat healthy when your husband does not really promote it. For example, I grew, then picked, then cooked to perfection some delicious yellow squash. I put some of it on each plate for Sunday dinner. My husband said, "Why did you give me this." I said, "I just wanted you to try it." He said, "I did try, it tastes like crap." (My husband is actually really nice, he can just be a little too honest when it comes to food). I said, "Don't say that in front of the kids, because now they won't try it." He said, "Kids try the squash, it tastes like crap." So of course they didn't want to try it. I was able to bribe my 4 year to eat one bite. Thankfully, my baby ate two plates full and I ate and enjoyed the rest.
