How Sweet It Is: Gluten-free Apple Crisp Print Recipe Print Recipe

Look who’s here! Hiiiiiii Jess!!!!

You’re probably familiar with her mouth watering blog, How Sweet It Is.  She continues to blow me away with her creative powers in the kitchen and gives my abs a nice little workout with her sense of humor. Oh AND she makes some of THE best food.

Her and I first met back in Seattle for BlogHer Food, where we were roomies and it was basically love at first sight. I’m hoping this becomes an anual tradition. Except next time, there will be a baby…

Thank you, thank you for sharing this delicious apple crisp, it’s absolutely perfect for the holidays!


If there is anything that absolutely SCREAMS fall, it’s apple crisp. Apple pie is one thing, but apple crisp? With its syrupy, sugary cinnamon apples blanketed in crunchy and caramely oats? Ugh. So so so good.

My husband always swears his favorite dessert is chocolate chip cookies… until he eats apple crisp. Then that’s his favorite dessert. Well, until he has cookies again. Vicious cycle. See what I’m dealing with here?

To perfectly appeal to our palates, we’re obsessed with serving this apple crisp with scoops of tart frozen yogurt. You know… when it’s still piping hot. Because then you get rivers of creamy ice cream flowing through those crunchy oats and apples and stuff. And seriously, what’s better than rivers of creamy ice cream?

Nothing. That’s what.



Gluten Free Apple Crisp

PRINT Recipe

Serves 4


  • 4 honeycrisp apples, chopped into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup gluten free oats
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a square baking dish or pie plate, combine apples with brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Toss to coat and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine gluten free oats, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Add in vanilla extract then using your hands, add butter to the mixture. Take about 5 minutes and thoroughly toss, rubbing the butter throughout the dry ingredients with your fingers until it clumps together. Once the entire mixture is moistened, spread it evenly over the apples.

Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until apples are soft and syrupy and the crisp is golden.
