Easy Gluten Free Apple Crisp Everyone Will Love

Hi there friends! Welcome to Taste of the Season hosted by my friend Kristin from Ella Claire! It will be a 5 part series over the holiday season, which will include incredible recipes from over 20 of your favorite bloggers each time. Today it’s all about APPLES!  I never thought I would be saying this at the end of August but it feels like fall. Usually the last week of summer on Long Island is hotter than heck but yesterday I found myself reaching for a long, cozy sweater and leggings, what?! Speaking of fall, I have the perfect recipe, not only is it easy but it’s delicious too. It’s a Gluten Free Apple Crisp that everyone will love!

As most of you know I went GF a few months ago, you can read about it HERE. The dessert part has been a little tough, I am not gonna lie. I do indulge in dessert from time to time, so I am enjoying converting & testing out some of my favorite recipes. This recipe is also simple enough to convert back if you so choose but I doubt you will:).

For the filling you will need a bag of apples, I used Gala but the recipe is flexible. I peeled and sliced them into small chunks.

Time to add the sugar + cinnamon.

For the topping I used GF old fashioned rolled oats + GF baking flour as substitutions in order to make it gluten free.

After it was baked I topped it with all natural vanilla bean ice cream while still warm, so yummy!!!

  1. Would love to make this just to show Mr.Furry gluten free can be delicious, wouldn’t tell him was gluten free til he ate it. Sure looks delicious.
    So many people are going gluten free. Have a friend who had diabetes 2 when I met her, she was quite heavy. Thru watching what she ate and yoga she lost lots of weight and went gluten free. She is now thinner than I am and looks terrific and no more diabetes, can you imagine?
    Have read that people with hypothyroidism should also go gluten free, Have been entertaining the idea. My problem would be Mr.Furry, not one to like change to his diet, he loves to eat everything.
    When I was born my thyroid didn’t work at all so have lived with hypothyroidism all my life. So it might be good idea for me to actually go gluten free, thought would discuss with my dr. do more research.
    How does your family feel about it? Have they been willing participants?

    1. Hi Jane Ellen,
      That is so amazing for your friend! There is so much to learn about all of this, if you are considering I would talk to your doctor and read up. That was really helpful for me in deciding if it was right for me. The diet is ok, there is so much you can have that I just omit things I cant eat from what I cook for them. Everything I bake is with GF flour and even meatballs & chicken parm I make with GF bread crumbs. I can still eat potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn tortillas, etc…Just look at the ingredients, sometimes they sneak some pretty scary substitutes in there. Let me know what you decide. Have a happy day! Jen

  2. I’m more surprised every day with all these delicious gluten-free treats I find – at first it felt everything had gluten, but the more you look, the more you see food can be just as goodw without it!
