apple crisp.

hey –

apple dessert in november? sign me up. apple pie has long been my favorite of the pie varieties – every year my dad and i bake pies on thanksgiving morning. this recipe really hits home with me – seriously counting down the days until i’m back in Minnesota for the holidays.

so this recipe is like apple pie, but a thousand times easier & healthier! dairy-free, paleo, & vegan! keep reading for my fav recipe i’ve posted so far.

here’s what you’ll need.


  • 2-3 granny smith apples 
  • 1 cup gluten free oats
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • cinnamon
  • salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • optional: chopped walnuts
  • hardly optional: dairy-free vanilla ice-cream

here’s what you’ll do.


  1. pre-heat your oven. my oven doesn’t allow me to set a temp, but 375-400°F should do the trick.
  2. peel & slice your apples – you want your apples pretty thinly sliced. add cinnamon to coat the apples. then arrange them in a bread pan or any smaller baking dish so they lay flat, do not pack down.
  3. in a separate bowl, combine oats, almond flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, & salt (i never measure cinnamon or salt, but maybe a tsp of cinnamon? few dashes of salt).
  4. scoop out your solid coconut oil & do not melt. instead add to your mixture & mix with a fork, knife, or both. the coconut oil should form dime-sized balls throughout the mixture – leave them whole!
  5. add your crumble to top your apples, do not pack down.
  6.  pop into the oven for 30-40 min or until your kitchen smells like heaven & apples are soft.
  7. add a scoop or dairy-free ice-cream & try not to cry!
