Best Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Even though the heat of summer is still here, many of us are starting to wish for Fall. Pumpkin Spice is starting to come out in the food industry and Fall decorations are starting to be on clearance to make way for Christmas. This feeling of fall has had me search for the best gluten free apple crisp.

It is not quite time for apple picking but those shops will open soon. The local pumpkin patch will be open by mid-September. I am looking forward to these visits. We also like to camp more in the fall as it is so much cooler! Do you have any fall traditions that you enjoy?

I am harvesting from a new garden and recently started receiving regular emails from the Old Farmer’s Almanac so I decided to look at their apple crisp recipes. As I need to be gluten free for my health reasons, I enjoy converting their recipes to make the best gluten free apple crisp.

The original recipe is called S & S Apple Crisp.

Changing the Apple Crisp to Gluten Free

Best Gluten Free Apple Crisp - Pamelas FlourFor this recipe, the flour and the rolled oats needed to be changed to make this recipe gluten free. If you are celiac, please double check the ingredients that I used. My gluten free diet is to help calm inflammation and arthritis. Friends, if someone is celiac, cross contamination or the wrong ingredient can make that person sick for longer than my inflammation. Take extra care on any advice on ingredients from your friend and any changes that they would want to make in this recipe.

Gluten free flours are more accessible than they used to be. I am experimenting with mixing up my own and also the All In One flours. Recipes that use a home mixed flour or individual flour measurements also need xanthan gum added when baking. All In One flours have already added xanthan gum.

The flour I had on hand was Pamela’s Gluten Free and Vegan All-Purpose Flour. This flour is one of the mixes that you can change recipes 1-for-1 with wheat flour. That means that you can measure this flour with the same measurement of wheat flour. This is a great starting point if you are just starting to bake gluten free. As you get more experience, you can play more with flours and save some money in the longer term.

Best Gluten Free Apple Crisp - Natures Path OatsTo change out the rolled oats, I use the Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats to Nature’s Path Organic Gluten Free Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats. My local HyVee does have it in their gluten free aisle.

Best Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Adapted from the Old Farmer’s Almanac S & S Apple Crisp recipe.

INGREDIENTS

6 cups apples, peeled, cored and sliced

2 teaspoons cinnamon

3/4 cup melted butter

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup gluten free 1-for-1 all-purpose flour (Note: or your own mix with added xanthan gum)

1/2 cup gluten free old-fashioned rolled oats

Best Gluten Free Apple Crisp - cinnamon applesINSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Peel, core and slice the apples.

Place in an 8×8- inch baking dish and toss with the cinnamon. It may look like there is way too much cinnamon. Trust me, this will be great!

In a bowl mix the butter, sugar, flour, and oats. Spread this mixture over the apples. This mixture is thick and cake like, it will not bake up like cake though and will still crumble when served.

Bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream.

YIELD: 8×8 baking pan

Time to Eat

Best Gluten Free Apple Crisp - servingBaking apple crisp makes the house smell like fall and helps me start crafting the fall decorations. This is a small 8 X 8 crisp without being doubled, so it is good for just the two of us or to take to a dinner with another couple.

I may consider trying adding nuts next time and update this recipe. Do you like apple crisp? Do you have a favorite recipe that you have adapted?

Whatever you do, do you!
