Do you ever feel like your internal calendar is ridiculously far behind (and simultaneously far ahead of) everyone else’s? Everyone else = the actual calendar on your desk.
Apparently, it’s just a few days until the first official day of Autumn! And I sooooo don’t know how to process this. Like, whaaaaa? How is it Autumn already? Concurrently, I’m also thinking: Wasn’t it autumn like 3 months ago?
Ah, the life of a madwoman. Erm, a food blogger! Truth be told, I developed and shot this recipe in the thick of summer—and I do mean THICK. The weather was hot, muggy, thick with sweat (ew) and, well, not with a lot of fall stuff lying around. Save for this gluten free vegan pumpkin bread that Erik had to have, immediately. Or else. 🙄😛
So, in my mind, fall was ages ago. But also, hasn’t happened yet. Oh me…
Meanwhile, to add more confusion to the mix, Erik and I always joke about the fact that we think fall starts in August (blame back-to-school, aggressively early candy displays that insist that it’s Halloween in JULY, etc., I could go on and on), but it actually starts way later.
So to soothe our minds and calm our… everything… I decided to greet fall the best way I know how: with FOOD. Duh!! I mean, I can’t even tell you how these vegan gluten free chocolate cupcakes saved me the other day… I mean, I could, but I’m too dazed to do so. 😵
Anywho… welcome to my Vegan Gluten Free Cinnamon Apple Crisp with Oats. It’s warm, cozy, totally time-appropriate (I promise), and seriously so good. I took the reader-fave recipe for my Paleo Apple Crisp and gave it a little twist with a gluten free oat topping. I also kicked up the ground cinnamon to a most pleasing level, and voila!
Seasonal. Fall. Delicious. Perfection.
Just so you and I know what season it really is! 😉
My favorite part? The sweet oat & nut topping—wait, no, the gooey cinnamon filling—wait, actually, the delightful whole ingredients—wait, oh never mind!

- 3 medium apples, peeled and thinly sliced* (4 cups)
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon blanched almond flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1-2 tablespoons water (optional)
- ¾ cup pecans, chopped
- ½ cup gluten free rolled oats
- ¼ cup blanched almond flour
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- To make this paleo, make the topping in this recipe.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with coconut oil. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, add all Filling ingredients: apples, coconut sugar, maple syrup, almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract. Using a rubber spatula, stir and fold until apples are fully coated and sugar has dissolved. If the mixture isn’t very wet, add in water—there should be 1-2 tablespoons of liquid at the bottom of the mixing bowl. I used 1 ½ tablespoons water in mine.
- Pour this mixture into the prepared baking pan. Use the spatula to smooth apples into an even layer.
- Add all Topping ingredients to a medium bowl. Using a fork, stir and fold until crumbles form. Gently spoon evenly over apples, making sure to keep crumbles intact.
- Bake for 40-60 minutes. Mine took 45 minutes. It’s done when the top is a deep golden brown and the juice around the filling has thickened. To test, use a spoon to carefully lift up a corner of the crisp to see the juices. If it's still too watery, bake for another 5 minutes.
- Allow to cool for 10-15 mins. Serve warm with a scoop with dairy-free ice cream on top. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
