Gluten Free Apple Crisp



There are many reasons I bake, but by far the biggest is that it makes Ben happy. These days he's trying to avoid gluten-- nothing too strict or legalistic, but just generally trying to keep away from it. So I adapted an old family favorite with some gluten free substitutes, and the result is all together yummy, whether you're gluten free or not!

Gluten Free Apple Crisp

6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (these really are the best!)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon gluten free flour (rice flour?)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Crisp Topping
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup oats (we do just regular oats, but for stricter gluten free people, "gluten free" oats)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350. Combine apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon. Put apple mixture into your baking pan (we use 9X9")
2. Combine topping ingredients together and mix with spoon or fingertips until crumbly.
3. Place topping over apple mixture and bake for 45 minutes.

Enjoy!

Check out elana's pantry website for awesome gluten free tummies. I make the breakfast bars for Jeff to take to work.

Thank you, Annie! I haven't gotten any cookbooks, so for the time being I've been tinkering with our old recipes... a reliable website would be wonderful!

Thank you soooo much for posting this! I just randomly came across your blog and saw the Gluten-Free recipe. My grandma has celiac, so I love making gluten-free desserts for her. :)
