Apple Crumble – Gluten Free

Posted in rachel's recipes on Nov 17,2014

This apple crumble recipe is to die for good. One bite and you will be in warm melty apple, cinnamon heaven. It is also quite easy to make, and gluten free! If you are looking for a healthier replacement to your Thanksgiving apple pie, this is IT! You can also serve it with a small spoonful of vanilla bean ice cream or I suggest Talenti Gelato apple caramel pie… which is not healthy and isn’t what your dietitian would recommend on a weekly basis, but hey, for the holidays, why not? It is absolutely amazing on it’s own though, so no need to spoil it with extra sugar and fat.

Apple Crumble


6 medium apples, cored and chopped (a variety of both sweet and tart – leave the skin on for added fiber and nutrition!)
1 fresh lemon
1/3 cup sugar OR truvia/stevia
1 Tbsp cornstarch
heaping 1 Tbsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/8 cup coconut flour
1/8 cup buckwheat flour or quinoa flour
1/2 cup gluten free old fashioned oats
1/4 cup almond flour/meal
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch salt
1/3 cup (little more than 1/2 one stick) non-dairy butter melted, such as Earth Balance or organic grass fed butter or unrefined coconut oil (your choice)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a 8×11 baking dish or something similar
Add apples to baking dish and coat lightly with fresh squeezed lemon juice. Toss to coat with granulated sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt.
In a separate bowl mix brown sugar, flour, meal, oats, cinnamon and salt and stir. Add melted butter and mix until it resembles wet sand.
Sprinkle topping over the apples and bake until apples are soft and topping is golden brown (between 45-50 minutes)

My husband loves it with double the crumble for a thick topping, and caramel sauce is also a lovely addition.. if you are considering this a treat meal 🙂
