gluten free apple crisp in glass baking dish

Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

I like to use this gluten-free flour blend. You can also make this with almond flour or whole-wheat.

  • 6 cups freshly sliced apples (cores discarded; about 4–6 small to medium apples)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon divided
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or gluten-free flour blend)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cut into cubes


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and coat a 2 quart glass baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • Place the apples into a large bowl and toss with the cornstarch, 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon, and the lemon juice. Spread into the prepared baking dish.
  • Place the oats, flour, sugar, vanilla, and remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon into a medium bowl.
  • Use your fingers to work the butter into the mixture to until uniformly mixed. There can be some chunks of butter remaining. The texture should be similar to a chunky granola. (Alternatively, you can do this step in a food processor.)
  • Spread the topping over the apples in the pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the apples are soft.  If the topping starts to get too dark brown at any point, cover it loosely with a piece of foil and continue baking. Let cool slightly and serve warm or at room temperature.


  • You can make this up to 3 days ahead and store it in the fridge or up to 3 months and store it, lid on or otherwise tightly covered, in the freezer. Thaw overnight in the fridge and warm through in a 300 degree oven, covered with foil.
  • I like to use Cortland, Granny Smith, or any other cooking apple in this recipe.
  • Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream as desired.
  • Serve leftovers for breakfast with plain Greek yogurt.
