Gluten Free Dutch Apple Crumble

Tomorrow is the first day of autumn, and I absolutely love this season! Fall means apples, pumpkins, colorful leaves, sweaters, leggings and boots, and hot beverages all day long. We have been getting a plethora of apple from our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share, so I have been experimenting with gluten free apple desserts.  I’ve created this recipe which is loosely based off of a Dutch Apple Pie, and I gotta say, it’s really delicious! Since it only has one crust instead of two, it’s easier to make than a traditional pie and also lower in calories!

Gluten Free Dutch Apple Crumble Recipe

Filling Ingredients

  • 6-8  medium apples, peeled and sliced to 1/4 inch thick
  • Cinnamon (try Saigon cinnamon for a richer flavor)
  • Lemon juice

Crust Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened at room temp
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour blend ( I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to1 Baking Flour)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup oat flour (Can grind gluten free oats in a Ninja or food processor to make oat flour)
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar

Directions: 

  1. Toss chopped and peeled apples with 1-2 tsp cinnamon and 1-2 tsp lemon juice. Place into 9×9  square pan or pie pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine flours and sugar in a bowl.
  3. Cut butter into small pea sized pieces and work into flour mixture with hands or a pastry cutter until a crumb mixture forms. Sprinkle evenly over apple mixture.
  4. Bake at 400 for 30-40 minutes or until apples are slightly bubbly, and topping is golden. Apples should be easily pierced with a fork.
  5. Serve warm by itself or with vanilla ice cream!
