Simple Paleo, Gluten-Free, and Vegan Apple Crisp Recipe {Refined Sugar-Free, SCD}

This simple paleo, gluten-free, and vegan apple crumble has been my favorite go-to dessert {and frequently breakfast} in the last few months. During apple season this year I must have made this every day — and I’m not exaggerating! It’s a simple, wholesome family recipe we never get tired of around here and I especially love it because it only takes minutes to throw together and comes out great every time.

I also love this type of treat because you can improvise with it a lot and add in all kinds of things — nuts, seeds, jams, berries, etc., so it never gets boring and it’s such an easy way to use up bits and pieces of whatever tasty things you’ve got leftover laying around. For a lighter version, I sometimes skip the crumble part, and just add in a ¼ cup apple butter or applesauce to the filling as the baked apple filling is wonderful on its own too {especially with some added cashew nuts and some non-dairy ice-cream, yogurt, or vegan whipped cream!}.


Simple Gluten-Free Vegan Apple Crumble Recipe

  • Author: Audrey @ Unconventional Baker
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 9" pie dish



  • 6 cups finely chopped apples
  • 1 tbsp non-dairy butter (or neutral tasting coconut oil)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ⅛ tsp nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp cloves
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 ½ tbsp lemon juice
  • Optional: a handful of raisins or dried cranberries


  • 1 cup almond flour (or any other nut flour)
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp non-dairy butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • optional: an additional 2 tbsp slivered almonds for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Oil a pie dish (or any similar size pan) and set aside.
  2. Mix all filling ingredients in a mixing bowl. Transfer to the pie dish and spread evenly.
  3. Mix all topping ingredients (except slivered almonds reserved for garnish, if using) in a separate small mixing bowl until coarse crumbs form. Sprinkle this mixture over the apples in the pie dish. Garnish with slivered almonds if desired.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven for approx 30 minutes, until the crumble turns golden brown.


Remove from oven and serve immediately {with a side of vanilla ice-cream, yogurt, or whipped cream — highly recommended} or chill if you like your apple crumble cold {makes a great gluten-free vegan breakfast!}. Enjoy!
