Inside: Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

I love apple pie. Unfortunately, making a perfect apple pie gluten-free usually leaves a lot to be desired. The pie crust just isn’t the same. Maybe sometime in the future this will change.

In the meantime, I can satisfy my craving for apple pie with this delicious Gluten-Free Apple Crisp {which is also Paleo-friendly). Full of healthy ingredients, this recipe won’t send your blood sugars soaring, but will still satisfy any apple dessert lover’s craving.

This recipe is ideal for making ahead. It also doubles nicely for larger crowds.

When finished, the apples are firm. If you prefer a softer apple filling then bake 10 minutes covered, and then 30-35 minutes uncovered.
