Gluten-Free Oat-Free Apple Crisp


I perfected the gluten-free and oat-free apple crisp. (Even gluten-free oats cause a reaction for me.) It is crunchy and buttery. Many gluten-free flours are not good for crunch, so I split it with cornstarch!

1 8-inch apple crisp


  • 6 medium apples - peeled, cored, and sliced

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • ½ cup apple juice

  • ¾ cup light brown sugar

  • ½ cup cold butter

  • cup gluten-free all purpose baking flour

  • cup cornstarch


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.

  2. Place apples in a large mixing bowl and toss with cinnamon and 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Pour apple juice over apples.

  3. Combine brown sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Blend in flour and 2/3 cup cornstarch using 2 forks or a pastry blender until butter mixture is crumbly; sprinkle evenly over apples.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until apples are tender and crust is golden, 40 to 50 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Water may be used in place of apple juice, if desired.
