Baked Apple Crisp Season!

From about mid September to early October there is usually an abundance of apples at our house. If you’re anything like me, I don’t like having fresh fruit go to waste so I usually end up making a lot of apple crisp! I prefer making apple crisp over apple pie because I love the cinnamon oat topping and its simple ingredients. Also, everyone knows apple crisp is the best when topped with vanilla ice cream. So even if you eat dairy free, get a scoop of dairy free vanilla ice cream and put it on that warm apple crisp. It’s SOOO delicious!

How to make baked gluten free apple crisp

The instructions on how to make this baked apple crisp is pretty straight forward. There are not very many steps and it only requires two bowls for mixing and the baking dish. That’s it!

Here are the steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Peel, core, and chop the apples into small bite-sized pieces. Add the chopped apples to a large bowl. Add the maple syrup, lemon juice, arrowroot, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix until blended and the apples are coated.
  3. Spread the apple mixture evenly into a square 8-inch baking dish.
  4. Next, mix the oat topping ingredients in a medium bowl until combined. Sprinkle the oat mixture on top of the apples in the baking dish. Spread evenly. Add a few extra chopped pecans on top if desired.
  5. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the topping is light golden brown and the juices are bubbling. The apples should be soft when tested with a fork. Let rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

What should I serve homemade apple crisp with?

Apple crisp pairs perfectly with vanilla ice cream in my opinion. If you follow a diary free diet, try dairy free vanilla ice cream or whipped coconut cream for a sweet treat! This gluten free apple crisp is also delicious on its own.
