What are the health benefits of apples?

  • Apples are a good source of heart healthy soluble fiber which may help lower undesirable LDL cholesterol & help keep blood sugar levels from spiking. Related post:
  • Apples are rich in quercetin, a flavonoid with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health benefits. Although human research studies are limited, quercetin may help fight asthma and allergies, and have anti-cancer activity.
  • Apples are a source of pectin, a prebiotic, which helps promote a healthy gut microbiome.

Tips for Making a Gluten Free Apple Crisp

  • Choose a sweet variety of apple, which allows you to cut back on the amount of sugar in the apple crisp. I love this guide to choosing apples from The Washington Apple Commission.
  • Leave the apple skin on for extra fiber and antioxidants.
  • Pre-cook the apples in mulling spices to make them extra juicy and delicious. Bonus: You’ll have hot mulled apple cider to drink when you’re done!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place apples in a saucepan with apple juice and mulling spices {if using}. Heat on high until boiling, then turn heat down and simmer for 15-20 minutes. 
  • While apples are simmering prepare topping. In a bowl combine remaining ingredients with a fork until well mixed. 
  • After apples are done, removed them with a slotted spoon, and divide them in to 4 individual ramekins. Divide topping amongst ramekins and sprinkle on top. Bake in oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until topping is crispy.

Notes

  • Don’t have sorghum flour or tapioca flour? Use your favorite gluten free flour blend instead.
  • Leave the apple skin on for extra fiber and antioxidants.
  • Pre-cook the apples in mulling spices to make them extra juicy and delicious. Bonus: You’ll have hot mulled apple cider to drink when you’re done!

  1. What a yummy gluten-free treat! Love the photos, looking at them is so satisfying. Excited to try this recipe, and my toddler will also love this for sure!

  2. I am a HUGE apple fan, but on my IBS diet I cannot eat them. They give me the worst stomach pains, and I never knew it until I started avoiding them. IT’s crazy, apples, pears and mangoes just upset my stomach. Either way, this sounds like a great recipe for me to demo at work!! Thanks, and of course I’ll be giving you credit 🙂

  3. EA… what’s the background in that first apple shot? I love the color.

    This looks so good. I really hated not to be able to make #applelove by today as apple desserts are truly one of my all time faves… hopefully I can get it together by the end of the month.

    Would be hard to top this post, though!

  4. See, this is why I love your posts & recipes – you always get a bonus (i.e. the apple cider)! I’m so glad someone did a crisp – probably my favorite kind of apple dessert and now I have the perfect recipe to try right at my finger tips – gorgeous photos, too as always!

  5. whoohoo for gluten free! love the cinnamon-y crispy fresh out of the oven delight :D. and you and me are both fans of honeycrisps. they are just so good. 🙂 have a wonderful day EA!

    ps – i won a gf king arthur flour giveaway and i got 4 huge bags!!! (gf all purpose, gf ancient grains flour, gf whole grains flour, gf brown rice flour). i am THRILLED.) i’ve been thinking about those waffles and those blueberry muffins u made awhile back….~
