A wholesome, maple sweetened apple crisp that is covered in a crunchy topping – best when served next to vanilla ice cream!
Are you feeling the holiday cheer yet? Thanksgiving and Christmas are creeping up on us. I’m not really in holiday mode [yet] but I am all about the flavors of fall. This gluten free apple crisp is a cinch to put together.
Whip up your own homemade pie filling by chopping up some apples, mixing in some maple syrup and spice, and letting simmer on the stove. When you are ready to make this crisp, you’ll have enough filling to make a double batch of this apple crisp.
Gluten-Free Apple Crisp
There is just enough butter and topping in this apple crisp to make this dessert feel like a treat. It’s much lighter and healthier compared to most other holiday desserts. Especially if you opt for maple syrup in the topping instead of brown sugar.
Making your own homemade pie filling beforehand allows the crisp to golden up much faster. Crisps are incredibly forgiving, even if you forget to remove on time they can sometimes end up too golden, which is still ok, too.
You probably won’t have leftovers. But if you do, serve them up for breakfast and top with greek yogurt instead of ice cream. Or enjoy as is for breakfast with a little whipped cream. After all, it’s just oatmeal, right?
