This delicious and easy apple crisp is so healthy you can eat it for breakfast! You'll be shocked that it's gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. Top with some dairy free ice cream or coconut whipped cream for some added creaminess. 



Crumble Topping

  • 2 cups rolled or old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup raw pecans, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup raw maple syrup 

Apple Filling

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 10-12 apples, peeled & sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons raw maple syrup
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon 
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)


  1. Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 350° F. 
  2. Prep apples: Peel skin off apples, discard core and thinly slice.
  3. Crumble topping: Mix all the crumble topping ingredients in a bowl. Ensure the pecans are chopped or crushed into small pieces. 
  4. Apple Filling: Take the baking pan (one 9x13 inch pan or two 8x8 inch pans) and grease the bottom and sides with avocado oil. Then pour the rest of the apple filling ingredients into the baking pan and mix well.
