Apple Crisp (Gluten Free & Vegan Option)

This apple-heavy and not-too-sweet no-fail version of apple crisp also happens to be gluten free and vegan-izable.  Perfect for those fall cozy days when the apple buckets are over-flowing!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Servings 12 servings


  • 10 cups 1/2" diced peeled apples* (about a dozen apples)
  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (gluten free)
  • 3/4 cup oat flour (gluten free)
  • 3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup melted butter or vegan butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and lightly grease a 9x13" baking dish. Place the apples in a large bowl.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, oat flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.  Mix to combine.  Stir in the melted butter or vegan butter to combine.

  3. Stir 1/2 cup of the oat mixture into the apples and stir to combine.  Transfer the apples to the baking dish and spread evenly with your fingers or the back of a spoon. Sprinkle the oat mixture evenly over the apples.

  4. Bake until the top is golden brown, around 1 hour.  Serve slightly warm with a scoop of vanilla 'nice cream' or ice cream.
