Gluten Free Apple Crisp


Husband and I had to bring a dish to share at his family reunion. Its apple season and I have been dying to sink my teeth into ooey gooey apple crisp. This potluck is the perfect excuse to make apple crisp.


I added a personal challenge to make a gluten free apple crisp that wouldn't taste like cardboard plunked on apples.

I succeeded. No one at the party realized my apple crisp was gluten free until I told them. Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner! Uh, I mean gluten free apple crisp.


The in law's bought the farm - literally. They downsized their house to one on a small farm. Here I am doing my best car model impression on Father in Law's new to him retirement sports car.

Gluten Free Apple Crisp Recipe





Ingredients

6 to 12 peeled and sliced apples (depending upon the size of the apple. I always err on the side of more apples than less) 
1 cup gluten free granola or (gluten free oatmeal + ½ teaspoon cinnamon + ½ teaspoon nutmeg)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
½ teaspoon vanilla

Make it

  1. Place the apple slices in a baking pan or casserole dish.

  1. Mix the gluten free granola (or oats plus spices), brown sugar, and vanilla together in a mixing bowl.

  1. Mix the softened butter into the dry mixture until crumbly. I don’t know if crumbly is a real baking term or not but I’m too lazy to Google so I’m going for it.

  1. Spoon the oat mixture onto the apple slices.

  1. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees (F) for 30 to 45 minutes until the apples are tender and the topping is light brown.

  1. Slice, eat, and repeat!
