Apple Crisp Filling Ingredients:

  • 4 medium size apples
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 heaping tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • nutmeg sprinkling, optional

Apple Crisp Topping:

  • 1/2 cup almond meal blanched
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. palm oil shortening
  • 1/4 cup gluten free flour multi-purpose


To make the filling:

  1. Peel, core and slice the apples and place them in a bowl. We got 16 slices from each apple to give you an idea of the thickness.
  2. Pour the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg over the apples and mix until evenly coated.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a pan over medium heat until it's melted.
  4. Add the apples and cook, stirring frequently for 5 minutes.
  5. Fill a measuring cup with water and add the cornstarch.
  6. Mix the water and cornstarch and pour it over the apples.
  7. Continue tossing the apples every minute so that they're evenly coated, and cook for another 15 minutes.
  8. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  9. Spoon the filling into your pie pan and set aside until topping is ready.

To make the topping:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients into a small food processor.
  2. Mix until well combined.
  3. Take out a baking sheet, and line it with parchment paper.

  4. Spoon out the topping mixture and bake it at 350 for 10-15 minutes.

  5. Once it's finished cooking, spoon the topping over the pie.

  6. Place in the oven for 20 minutes.

  7. Serve by itself, or top with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.

Recipe Notes

To convert this recipe to a grain free version, omit the gluten free flour, reduce the coconut oil in the topping by 1/2 tbsp, and replace the corn starch with arrowroot powder. 

This recipe can be made into 3 miniature pies as well. Simply use three small pie pans instead.
