Vegan + Gluten-Free Apple Plum Crisp. The best crisp I’ve had in awhile besides my recently made Homemade Gluten-Free Apple Crisp.

Yup, this crisp is truly legit, ya’ll. I just the apple spice flavor throughout, however, the slight tartness from the plums really do pull together the sweetness of everything well.

Ugh, so sad to see #AppleWeek come to an end, however, that doesn’t mean that you won’t see any apple recipes pop up here and there.

If you missed out on all the apple goodness, then I recommend scrolling down to see a quick recap!

What You’ll Need For This Crisp?

Apples — The absolute star of this dish; I tend to mix Gala Apples with Granny Apples for a nice ying-yang of flavor

Plums — A great tart + sweet addition to this crisp. Marries perfectly together with apples

GF Flour or Starch – Adds thickness to the tops while keeping things gluten-free

Brown Sugar – Creates a beautiful caramelization and sweetness to the top layer

Vegan Butter — Allows the topping to golden best; can be substituted with coconut oil

Agave — Used as a sweetener and creates a nice creaminess to apples. Can sub with brown sugar or pure Maple syrup

Fall Spices — the epitome of Fall flavor, including: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, cloves

Common FAQs for about Crisps.

HOW DO YOU STORE LEFTOVERS?

Leftover apple plum 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.

CAN I MAKE THIS AHEAD?

Absolutely! Simply prep all your ingredients separately: slicing the apples + plums and tossing them in a Tbsp of lemon juice + 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 fruit in your baking dish, skillet, or ramekins and top with oats and drizzle with vegan butter. Wallah!

HOW MANY SERVINGS CAN THIS MAKE?

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.

CAN I REMIX THIS CRISP WITH OTHER FLAVORS?

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 instead of plum OR keep things classic with just apples.

Let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Lightly grease your ramekins with butter and set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together the apples, plum, Agave, arrowroot, spices, and a pinch of sea salt, until well incorporated.

In a separate bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, oats, spices, and vegan butter and stir together until mixture looks crumbly and slightly chunky. **NOTE: Crumble in hands should be more ‘crumbly’ and slightly able to stick together, not entirely wet and sticky.**

Spoon the apple-plum mixture into the bottoms of each ramekin (about 2 Tbsps) and top with flour-oats mixture. Repeat until all ramekins are filled. Bake for about 45 minutes or until fruit becomes 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!

Bon Appetit!

Tips & Tricks

  • STORAGE: Best if served on the same day of making crisp. If made ahead of time (a few hours before serving), simply re-warm in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Leftovers should be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.
  • SWEETENER: You can always use maple syrup, Vegan honey, or organic brown sugar as a substitute for Agave. For vegan honey—-Bee Free Honee, click link.
  • GF FLOUR:I enjoy using a 1-to-1 Baking Flour, however, if using other GF flours such as Almond, Oat, etc. be sure to add 1 tsp of Xanthan Gum to your dry ingredients.
  • APPLES:Best apples to use for this bread are: Granny Smith, Gala, Honeycrisp, Fuji, etc.
