Recipe Ingredients

Apple Mixture

  • 6 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • ½ cup coconut sugar

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

  • ½ teaspoons ground nutmeg, divided

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Crumble Topping

  • ¾ cup all-purpose gluten-free flour

  • ¾ cup old fashioned oats

  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar

  • ½ cup chopped pecans

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • Pinch of salt

  • ½ cup cold butter, cubed

Recipe Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a large mixing bowl, add sliced apples and lemon juice. Stir to coat all apples to avoid browning.

Add coconut sugar, maple syrup, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, then toss to fully coat apples.

In your Dutch oven over medium heat, add ¼ cup butter, vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg. Stir until melted and well combined, then add the apple mixture and toss to coat completely. Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the apples are tender.

In a separate large mixing bowl, add all of the crumble topping ingredients except the cubed butter. Mix until well combined, then add the cubed butter and use your hands to work the butter into the dry mixture. This will take a couple minutes to get to a crumble-like consistency.

Add the crumble topping to the Dutch oven in an even layer on top. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the edges are bubbly.

Serve immediately with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and enjoy!
