Okay, not to toot my own horn, but my absolute favorite Apple Crisp Recipe is this one, which also happens to Vegan and Gluten-free while still tasting amazing if I don't say so myself. Heck, I love any crisp.
I don't have a gluten sensitivity, but I know many people who are gluten intolerant or choose to live a gluten-free lifestyle.
I created this Gluten-free Apple Crisp recipe so that we could all enjoy it during the holiday season! (Hence the ever-growing section on my website dedicated to gluten-free recipes, including this Gluten-free Pumpkin Smores Cookies recipe... YUM.. anyway, back to the crisp)
Not only are crisps super easy to make, but they are so mouthwatering. This Vegan Gluten-Free Apple Crisp is my newest must-make during the Fall season. Although it's such a simple concept, the flavor profile in this dish is SO blissfully good!
If you aren’t familiar, oats are super nutritious! They include a great source of carbs, fiber (the soluble kind!), protein, and fat. In addition, they are loaded with important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Other great benefits:
It is entirely up to you! I've made this recipe both ways and enjoy them both. I usually make this Vegan Gluten-Free Apple Crisp for my family, and my kids sometimes won't eat it with the skins on, so I peel them most of the time. I'm sure it goes without saying, but if you choose to leave the skins on, make sure to wash the apples thoroughly!
Leftover apple crisp can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days at most. Personally, I find that it's best consumed within the same day. However, you can simply reheat your crisp in the oven once ready to serve again.
Absolutely! Simply prep all your ingredients separately: slicing the apples and tossing them in the coconut cream + spices and storing them in a separate bowl, and adding the oats and spices in a separate bowl. Once ready to bake, simply add the prepped apples in your baking dish or skillet, top with oats and drizzle with vegan butter. Wallah!
Honestly, it's really up to you. This standard recipe can be up to 4 servings, depending on how many scoops you choose to indulge in (I'm guilty of eating this stuff massively. Haha). However, to increase the servings, simply make twice as much or triple the amount of the ingredients.
Definitely! I'm a huge believer in making tweaks based on your tastebuds, and this recipe is no different. Simply, add blueberries, apricots, or cranberries for a little pizzazz. Try my Gluten Free + Vegan Maple Peach Blueberry Crisp recipe or this Salted Caramel Apple Crisp recipe!
Add-ons for Apple Crisp! You can serve apple crisp without ice cream, but a scoop of vanilla ice cream really makes this warm dessert shine. My favorite dairy-free vegan ice cream is by Oatly. Another option is a dairy-free whipped cream! Or a drizzle of maple syrup if you like things extra sweet!
Let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lightly grease the skillet or baking dish with butter and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the coconut cream, maple syrup, and spices and toss in your sliced apples, coating them generously.
In a separate bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, oats, spices, and vegan butter and stir together until mixture looks crumbly and slightly chunky.
Spoon the apples into the bottom of your baking dish or skillet and top with oats mixture. Bake for about 40-45 minutes or until apples become bubbly and topping is golden brown.
Once fully baked, remove from oven and let them cool for 5 minutes or so. Serve warm and enjoy with a scoop of your favorite non-dairy ice cream or CocoWhip!
