This grain-free apple crisp recipe is easy to put together and so delicious, no one will miss the grains! It’s Paleo-friendly too, and dairy-free (assuming you use coconut oil instead of butter). I’ve tried this grain-free crisp recipe with fresh mixed berries, peaches and apricots too – it’s equally delicious. I usually swap cardamom for the cinnamon when I’m using berries, but otherwise everything is just the same.
I serve grain-free apple crisp warm for dessert, sometimes topped with whipped coconut cream or ice cream. Is also perfect at room temperature the next day, I eat it for breakfast if there’s any left!
Preheat oven to 350 F
Lightly grease a 9 or 10-inch deep dish pie pan or cast iron skillet.
In a large bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, 1 TBSP maple syrup, vanilla, tapioca starch, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp salt until well mixed. Pour apple mixture into prepared pan, scraping down sides to get all the juice into the pan.
