Gluten Free Apple Crisp


Gluten Free Apple Crisp












With Labor Day well behind us, who’s not longing for the aromas of autumn spice wafting through their homes.  This easy gluten free apple crisp is a perfect example of how simple things can be.  It’s the yummiest dessert you can turn to when you’re craving apple pie but don’t want to make the whole pie for yourself. 

I've often said that apple crisp is for people that don’t feel like messing with the crust.  This apple crisp recipe shows you that it’s just as easy to make for one as it is for ten.  And I baked mine right in the toaster oven since it was still pretty warm out when the day I decided to take the plunge and kick off my fall baking.    

The only thing better than diving into a warm bowl of apple crisp, is topping it off with good vanilla bean ice cream first.  Would anyone disagree?

Gluten Free Apple Crisp
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 30 min
Servings: 1

Ingredients
  • 1 large apple, peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp brown sugar  
  • apple pie spice, sprinkle to taste
  • 1 tbsp water

 Ingredients for the Topping:
  • 2 tbsp rolled oats (gluten free)

  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • apple pie spice, sprinkle to taste

Instructions:
  1. In a medium bowl stir together the diced apple, corn starch, brown sugar, apple pie spice and water then add the apple mixture to a greased 2 cup Pyrex dish.
  2. For the topping, in a small bowl combine the oats, gluten free flour, diced butter, walnuts, apple pie spice and brown sugar.
  3. Use your fingers to mix the butter into the other ingredients by pinching it with a sliding type motion until you've got a nice crumbly consistency… then loosely spoon mixture over the seasoned apples.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in a preheated 350°F (or 175 °C) oven or toaster oven.
  5. When it comes out I like to let it cool for 5 or 10 minutes. 

Notes: 
  1. If you want to add ice cream while the Pyrex is still very hot then you've got to aim your ice cream away from the dish so the temperature change wont crack the glass.
  2. This recipe is easy to increase and can be made in one large baking dish or several more individual servings.
