Plan the perfect dessert for fall with this Gluten-Free Baked Apple Crisp!
As we head into fall one of the best desserts is a simple Gluten-Free Baked Apple Crisp. This Baked Apple Crisp is one of our favorite recipes of all-time. It’s the perfect gluten-free dessert.
This is wonderful served with a scoop of ice cream.
What flour should you use for Gluten-Free Baked Apple Crisp?
To make this gluten-free use gluten-free oats and gluten-free all-purpose flour. I prefer to use Better Batter for the flour.
In full disclosure, I write menu plans for Better Batter but it really is the BEST flour for any gluten-free recipe. It’s a 1:1 switch so it’s easy to use too.
Which Apples should you use for this recipe?
This is more personal preference than anything else, but I do prefer Honeycrisp. It’s such a sweet crunchy taste that is great for this apple crisp.
I’d also suggest pealing half the apples but not all of them. I used to peel all of them mainly because I had picky eaters that do not like the skin of the apple, but I’ve found I actually prefer a more balanced method. A few with the apple skin give it a great color too.
How do you make Gluten-Free Baked Apple Crisp?
I prepared it in a 9×13 baking dish, the recipe is simple, a few suggestions though be sure to use old fashioned oats. The quick oats can get mushy when they are in the oven but the old fashioned tend to give just the right balance of texture too.
The smell of my house as it baked was amazing, made me want the fall season to be here even more. Although, I can eat this year-round and it was perfect served with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream!
Is your mouth watering yet? I’m not going to lie this only lasted a few days around our house!
Enjoy this tasty dessert!
