Apple Oat Crisp Vegan - Gluten Free

Tami Kramer Nutmeg Notebook
Wholesome oats, apple juice and date paste make a crumbly topping for your favorite apples perfectly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Serve it warm with a generous scoop of your favorite plant based nice cream. Treat your family with this perfect comfort food dessert for fall. I like to use a combination of Granny Smith and Honey Crisp apples.

  • Oven, Pie Plate



  • 4 cups apples, peeled, cored, diced or thinly sliced 1/8 inch I use 2 Granny Smith & 2 Honey Crisp apples
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon oat flour
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla powder or vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 2 Tablespoons apple juice unsweetened


  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats, certified gluten free for those who are GF
  • ¼ cup almond flour or oat flour certified GF oat flour for those who are GF
  • 2 teaspoons Apple Pie Spice
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla powder or vanilla extract
  • 5 Tablespoons Apple Juice unsweetened
  • ¼ cup date paste *see recipe below


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • For the filling in a large mixing bowl combine the apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, oat flour, vanilla powder, raisins and apple juice stir until well combined. Place in a 9-inch round or square baking dish.
  • For the topping, in a medium size bowl combine the rolled oats, oat flour (or almond flour) apple pie spice, vanilla powder or vanilla extract, apple juice and date paste using a fork mix until well combined. Spread it evenly over the apples in the baking dish. It will be lumpy -that’s what we want so it will get crispy.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until lightly browned on top and the apples are cooked through.
  • Serving suggestion, serve warm with a scoop of your favorite nice cream. We like using frozen bananas and frozen mango processed in either our Vitamix blender, food processor or Champion Juicer. Give it a little dusting of ground cinnamon for the finishing touch.


You can make your own oat flour by putting rolled oats in a food processor or blender.
