Easy Gluten Free Apple Crumble Recipe

gluten free apple crumble recipe

Comfort food season is right around the corner and what’s better on cozy evenings than a plate of warm, yummy apple crumble? Top with some vanilla ice cream for extra decadence… yummmmm. A friend brought one over a few weeks ago and when a neighbor gave us some apples from her tree I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them. Gluten-free crumbles are an easy way to combine all the goodness of a pie without having to fret over perfecting the crust (something I’m trying to find a good gluten-free recipe for). 

I used two different gluten-free flours for this crumble- brown rice and coconut- and the result was a success (for a regular version, just swap in non-bleached flour). The process to make these is quick and easy, but I learned the hard way not to pop the crumbles under the broiler, trying to melt the brown sugar a little more (my first one caught fire…! #nailedit). These are also a great make-ahead dessert idea- I quadrupled this recipe to make some crumbles to freeze- just don’t bake the crumble until you thaw it and ready to serve (according to the friend who inspired me to make these, they turn out better if you don’t bake before freezing).


6- 8 large apples

1/2 cup sugar

1 tbsp gluten-free flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup gluten-free oats 

1 cup gluten-free flour (I used equal parts brown rice and coconut flour)

1 cup brown sugar, packed

1/4 tsp each baking soda and baking powder

1/2 cup butter, melted

*(I used a combination of brown rice and coconut flour for this recipe)


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.Peel and core apples. Cut into 1.5″ pieces and place into a large bowl or baking dish.

5. Combine remaining dry ingredients, adding the melted butter once mixed together.

6. Layer evenly ontop of the apples and bake for 30- 45 minutes, or until golden brown on top. (If you’re freezing these for later, skip baking them until you thaw them).

7. Serve alone or topped with vanilla ice cream.
