A Fall Favourite!

Apple Crisp

Enjoy the smell of warm cinnamon apple crisp baking in the oven!

~ Gluten & Dairy Free ~

6 portions


6 cups fresh golden delicious apples, peeled and cut into big pieces. (See below) 

3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tbsp white sugar

Crumble Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill Old Fashioned Gluten-Free Rolled Oats

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 cup of cold dairy-free butter


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2) Peel and cut 6 cups of apples into pieces.

3) Place apples in a bowl and cover with cinnamon and sugar. 


4) Grease a 9x9 glass baking dish. Pour apples into the glass baking dish and set aside.


5) In a large mixing bowl or stand-blender add gluten-free oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and vegan butter (I have used Earth Balance Original Spread and Becel Vegan Butter). Use a fork or blend mixture until crumbly.  

6) Spread crumble over apples. 

7) Bake for about 35-45 minutes, until apples are soft when pierced with a fork and crumble is browning. 

Some apples take longer to bake then other ones. 

Tip: If you are using a milder apple in your apple crisp, you could put a couple of tart apples with it too. 

The rolled oats need to be the old-fashioned style, not quick-cooking.

If you really want to reduce the amount of sugar cane, replace the sugar in the apples with 1 tbsp of honey and 2 tbsp of brown sugar in the crumble, instead of 1/2 cup.

Ontario Apples: 

Golden Delicious Apples-
These firm juicy apples are great in apple crisp and in pies because they keep their shape. They are also good in apple sauce.

Gala Apples- Great eaten fresh but work well in an apple crisp.

McIntosh Apples- Great for apple crisp, pies and sauces because they soften but they cook right down and don't keep their shape. Also, good eaten fresh but have a thicker skin. Mildly tart flavour.

Jonamac Apples- Excellent in apple crisp! They keep their shape in apple crisp but they take longer to bake. They are also a great eating apple as the skin isn't as thick as a McIntosh Apple. They are also ready for picking earlier in the fall.

Jonagold Apples- Great for cooking or eating fresh. They have thin skin. 

Honeycrisp Apples- Best eaten fresh. Crisp and sweet. Very delicious.

Northern Spy Apples- These crisp and firm apples are excellent for pies and baking.

Red Delicious Apples- These firm, sweet apples are best when eaten fresh or in salads, not for cooking.

Spartan Apples- These are great for pie filling or when eaten fresh.

Fuji Apples- Best when eaten fresh.

Empire Apples- These apples are tart, sweet, juicy and firm. They make a great snack or in apple sauce.

Crispin Apples- These have a tart to sweet taste that is good eaten fresh, baked in pies or in apple sauce.
Cortland Apples- This is a mild-tasting apple with a crisp texture. Good eaten fresh or baked in pies. These apples don't turn brown when cut so they are nice on a fruit tray or salad.
Ambrosia Apples- These apples are crispy and juicy with a low-acid flavour. These are best eaten fresh.

Idared Apples- Ideal for baking or eating fresh. Keeps its tart flavour when baked.
