Gluten Free Vegan Apple Crisp

by livingfreelygf

Fall is officially here and I realized that I need some apple recipes to enjoy. I have been working on an apple crisp recipe for some time now and it is time to dust the flour off of it and perfect it. This Gluten Free Vegan Apple Crisp recipe with oatmeal is so flipping amazing that it was really hard to not have seconds. I was so full that I just couldn’t, but that didn’t stop me from licking the spoon when I was done cleaning up the mess.

Gluten Free Vegan Apple Crisp is always an easy alternative to making a pie. Even though I have an amazing pie dough recipe, sometimes I just don’t feel like rolling out dough. Who can resist a good crumb topping either? I am a sucker for crumb and this apple crisp recipe with oatmeal makes the perfect crumb topping.

Apple Crisp Recipe with Oatmeal

I used Honeycrisp apples for this recipe and I loved the way they turned out.  The apples were tender, but not mushy, and had the perfect amount of sweetness. There was a gooey sauce surrounding the apples and the crumb on top made it absolutely perfect. This recipe is also Grandma Olga approved. She loved it!

It only took me about 25 minutes to throw it all together, with the majority of that time being the peeling and chopping of the apples. I really need one of those apple peelers, it would make my life easier.

How do I make this Apple Crisp recipe with Oatmeal?

You will start with peeling and slicing your apples. I used about 6-7 of small to medium apples.

Add the apples to your bowl and then add the rest of the ingredients, mix well.

Grease a baking dish. I used an oval 11 inch for this. Pour your apples in and spread them out evenly. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

Make the crumb by adding all of the crumb ingredients to a bowl and use a pastry cutter to blend it all together well. Spoon the crumb on top of the apples and spread it out evenly. Bake for 35 minutes.

Serve this with pumpkin ice cream and vegan pumpkin caramel for the optimum dessert experience.
