This gluten free apple crisp is just what you need to use up all those Fall apples. Sweet apples are tossed in a delicious refined sugar free sauce, then topped with an oatmeal crumble. Add a scoop of ice cream and some salted caramel for the ultimate Fall dessert!
Who doesn’t love a good apple crisp recipe?
This gluten free apple crisp is perfect for using up any leftover apples from the apple orchard. It’s also a great year-round dessert when you want a taste of Fall… Autumn was a little short for us this year. It’s currently 13℉ outside.
Everyone has a different way of making apple crisp. Mostly, I see the differences in the texture of the apples when baked. I personally love my apple to be soft when baked, but not at all mushy. They should still hold their shape.
I love baking with Haralson apples – many of the apple orchards around here grow them. These apples are a nice small to medium size, very crisp, and have just a slight tartness to them. They also hold their shape really well when baked, so no mushy apple crisp here!
Do I Need To Peel The Apples?
I recommend peeling the apples before slicing or chopping them. Depending on the type of apples you use, the skin might not break down when cooked.
What Are The Best Apples For Gluten Free Apple Crisp?
There are a few different types of apples that work really well for apple crisp:
Haralson: These are the apples I used! Smaller than a Granny Smith apple, they are crisp and juicy with just a slight tart flavor (but not as tart as Granny Smith). Haralson apples also hold their shape when baked and don’t turn mushy, making them perfect for baking!
Granny Smith: A popular option. They are slightly tart, yet hold their shape really well when baked.
Honeycrisp: Sweet and crisp, yet not too firm. These apples will bake down a little bit, so they create a nice juicy filling.
Can I Make This In Ramekins Instead?
Yes! I’ve made this recipe in individual ramekins and it turns out great. Depending on the size of your dishes, it may work better to dice the apples a bit smaller rather than slice or chop so they fit and cook evenly.
Once your ingredients are prepped, just divide the apple mixture evenly between your ramekins and top each with an even amount of crumb topping. Bake at 350℉ for 35-45 minutes depending on the size of your dishes.
