gluten-free apple crisp

Nothing screams fall like a warm apple crisp! It’s one of my favorite desserts to throw together because its delicious, and so easy to make. This gluten-free apple crisp has chunks of walnuts in the crumble, and goes perfectly with some vanilla ice cream.

I originally made this recipe last fall with spelt flour, but wanted to make it 100% gluten-free to accommodate those with sensitivities. You get a mix of warm, cinnamon baked apples topped with a walnut oat crumble- it truly doesn’t get better!

It’s one of those desserts that are perfect for a small gathering, or just a little something to keep in the fridge for that post-dinner sweet tooth.

I love prepping mine in a large pie dish, but making these into individual servings would be such a fun idea for a dinner party!

  1. This was amazing! I also left out the walnuts. I topped mine with some dairy free ice cream. . .YUM

  2. This is so good! Can’t believe what the tapioca does to the apples! Do not skip that step! I had to skip the walnuts because of kids allergies but it’s still delicious

    • I’m so happy you enjoyed it, Miryam!

        Soooo delicious and so easy to make. Is it important to store this in the refrigerator? Or can I leave it covered on the counter?

        • Since the apples are perishable, I would highly recommend refrigeration. I haven’t tested it on the counter, but wouldn’t keep it past 5 days if you try that!
