Apple Filling

  • 3 medium apples, diced
  • 1 tablespoon almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • pinch of sea salt


  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • pinch of sea salt

To Serve

  • plant-based coconut ice cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Prepare the apple filling. Combine apples, almond flour, cinnamon, maple syrup, water, and sea salt in a medium-sized bowl. Mix well and set aside while you make the topping.
  3. Prepare the topping. Combine rolled oats, walnuts, almond flour, and salt in a bowl. Drizzle with coconut oil and maple syrup. Mix well until the ingredients are well coated.
  4. Prepare the apple crisp by filling an 8″x8″ baking dish with the apple filling. Evenly sprinkle the topping.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until the oats are golden brown. Remove carefully from the oven and let the dish cool. Serve alone or with a scoop of plant-based ice cream.


  • If you are sensitive to gluten, be sure your rolled oats are gluten-free!
  • When reheating, pop it back in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes at 350°F.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight, glass container to enjoy later. Be sure the crisp has completely cooled down first.
