Easy Vegan Apple Crisp Recipe

Vegan Apple Crisp
Even if you’re eating gluten free or vegan, you still deserve dessert. In fact, you need it! Time to bring on the apple crisp. This easy vegan apple crisp starts with a mix of baking apples and is topped with oats, almond flour, brown sugar, coconut oil and spices. It’s exactly what a homestyle fruit crisp should be.

Now is the best time to bake with apples because the fresh crop is at farmers markets now. I used a mix of Prairie Spy and Haralson Minnesota grown apples, but you can use your favorite local apples.

Easy Vegan Oatmeal Apple Crisp Recipe
Apple Filling:
4 cups sliced peeled firm cooking apples
(I used Prairie Spy and Haralson)
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Oatmeal Crisp Topping:
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (gluten free, if needed)
1/4 cup almond flour (almond meal)
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons tapioca flour (tapioca starch)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

For apple filling, in a large bowl combine apples, granulated sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; stir to coat. Place apple mixture in a 9-inch round pie pan.

For topping, in a medium bowl combine oats, almond flour, brown sugar, tapioca flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger and salt. Add melted coconut oil and water; stir until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over apples.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes until apples are tender and topping is deeply browned. Serve warm or cooled.

Makes 4 servings

Tip: To make gluten free apple crisp, be sure to use gluten free oats. Since products can change, be sure to read package labels to make sure all ingredients are gluten free.
