Easy Gluten Free Apple Crisp Recipe-

Fall is here and apples are everywhere. If you’re eating gluten free then you are probably salivating at all the baked apple goodies, but maybe you’re not so great in the baking department.

Once you try this easy gluten free apple crisp recipe, you will thank me, but please do not call me when you can’t stop yourself from eating it! :) (If you are not eating gluten free, just substitute All Purpose Flour for the GF flour and regular oats for the gluten free oats.)

Yum! This looks so great! We are having friends over for dinner, and they don’t eat gluten so I’ve been looking for a good dessert– I have found it now! :)


Kimberlee October 10, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Just make sure you use real butter. It’s a must. :)


Jorjie October 12, 2012 at 7:59 pm

I’m trying this ASAP! I’m always looking for gluten free recipes for my 2yrold… She’ll love it.


Alicia October 13, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Ooooh….this looks like it will go well with the 20lb bag of apples we now have! Super excited to find a simple, yummy looking gf recipe :)


Jennifer October 31, 2012 at 10:09 am

Yep…couldn’t stop eating it! I should have heeded your warning. :-)
Wow, it really was good. My husband, young child, and I ate the whole thing in one day. We used 5 cups of apples and a little extra of everything.
I used 1/3 cup of each of these sweetners: Sucanat, Coconut sugar, and maple sugar and some Pink Lady apples we picked. We also added a bit of vanilla.
Thank you! This could be fed to anyone and they’d never know it is gluten free! I use Bob’s Red Mill gf mix for all kinds of things…esp for breading things to fry. yum!

I am so glad you enjoyed it Jennifer!

How can you ruin a simple recipie like that……….


Heather November 17, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Yum! I did find that it looked a little dry- I think my apples were not juicy enough- so I added a few pats of butter and pushed the topping down into the apple mixture to wet it, and it finished baking beautifully. Thanks for a great GF recipe! (I used Pamela’s GF Baking mix).


Kimberlee November 17, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Butter makes everything better! :)


Rogene November 17, 2012 at 7:05 pm

YUMMM! I love apple crisp!


Annie November 23, 2012 at 3:28 pm

I made this for Thanksgiving, it was a smashing success. I doubled the recipe and used a 13×9 glass baking dish, the amount was just perfect. I also substituted coconut oil for the butter to accommodate a dairy-free guest, I can only imagine how heavenly this would be made with butter!


Kimberlee November 23, 2012 at 8:18 pm

I am so glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for letting me know. :)


Mary November 28, 2012 at 3:00 pm

This was a great success for my family dinner. My husband who hates gluten free products loved it. I did use earth balance butter which is non-dairy because I cant have milk, and it still tasted awesome! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!!!


Kimberlee November 28, 2012 at 3:01 pm

I am so glad that you enjoyed it Mary. Thanks for letting me know! :)

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Made it on Thanksgiving and on Christmas this year. It is a nice alternative to apple pie (much faster and easier). I combined this with my apple pie recipe (basically adding more spices to the apples.) It made my GF husband really happy to still have something he loves. Thanks again!


Kimberlee December 27, 2012 at 12:50 am

I am so glad Stephanie–thanks for letting me know. :)


Jonathan June 26, 2013 at 2:45 am

Absolutely amazing… that’s all. Made it tonight and loved it.


Kimberlee June 26, 2013 at 6:19 am

Woohoo! So glad you liked it Jonathan. Fights can ensue at our house over this stuff. :)


Denise October 8, 2013 at 5:09 pm

It is awesome! Wow! Can’t tell it GF that’s for sure….will have to make it for the holidays too! Thanks so much for posting the recipe..


Kimberlee October 8, 2013 at 6:05 pm

You are very welcome Denise!


Arielle Weiler October 14, 2013 at 12:15 pm

So easy and so tasty. I’m just getting into gluten free baking and this is a very simple and delicious first step. Thanks!


Tila November 19, 2013 at 7:27 pm

Can you substitute coconut sugar for the brown?


Kimberlee November 19, 2013 at 7:49 pm

I have not tried that and I imagine that it would affect the taste, but it would still sweeten it.


Megan February 18, 2014 at 7:29 pm

Thanks for posting! The Apple Crisp was amazing! :) MMMMM! I can’t wait to make it again!


Kimberlee February 18, 2014 at 11:03 pm

I’m so glad you enjoyed it Megan. :)
