Grain Free Apple Crisp with a Twist


  • Topping:
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (pecan and almonds are nice too)
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, Grade A
  • Filling:
  • 3 pounds baking apples (Granny Smith), peeled, cored, and quartered
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, Grade A
  • 1/31/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice from 1 orange
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 Teaspoons arrowroot


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Mix together all the ingredients for the topping until thoroughly combined and set aside.
  3. For the apples, cut each quarter into 1/8″ slices, about 6 slices per quarter and layer them in a 9″ x 13″ baking dish.
  4. Mix together the maple syrup, orange juice, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and arrowroot together in a bowl until well blended.
  5. Pour the mixture over the apples and spoon the topping evenly over the surface.
  6. Bake the crisp for 45-55 minutes until the apples are tender and the juices are bubbling. I always use a foil or parchment tent over my crisp to keep it from turning too brown during baking.
  7. Serve warm with your favorite ice cream.
