Fall is finally inching our way. And while we’re sad to see summer go, autumnal desserts like this insane apple crumble with vegan caramel are helping us deal.

My weakness is warm, gooey, cinnamon apple crisp made gluten-free and vegan, topped with coconut whipped cream and a homemade maple caramel drizzle! This crisp is my mom’s old recipe that we just tweaked to make gluten free and vegan-friendly! Not claiming your gonna get healthier eating it but it will make ya happy.

Gluten-Free Apple Crumble + Caramel Sauce


7 or 8 apples peeled, cored and sliced into a 9×13 lightly greased pan

for the topping:
2 cups gluten free oats
1 cup all purpose gluten free flour
1 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup coconut butter/or fave vegan butter

for the caramel:
½ cup pure maple syrup
½ cup creamy nut butter ( I used a natural coconut macadamia peanut butter
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean
pinch of sea salt


Cut up the apples and spread evenly throughout a baking dish. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the ingredients for the topping, then “cut” in the coconut butter (slicing back and forth with two knives) to make clumps.

Sprinkle the crumble loosely on top of apples (do not pack down). Bake at 350 for 1 hour until crisp on top and apples are soft.

Meanwhile, make the caramel sauce by combining all ingredients into a blender. Blend until completely smooth.

Allow the crip to cool slightly before serving. Top with coconut whip cream and maple coconut caramel. Enjoy!

  1. Are you missing an ingredient in the crumble topping? If you mixed oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt, it wouldn’t clump together.

  2. I think the coconut butter should be listed under the “toppings” section, maybe?

  3. Sounds delicious. But seriously?! I don’t know many people who could afford those ingredients.

  4. Sounds delicious — and looks it, too!! However, I agree with Alyssa, there is something missing from the dry ingredients as there is no ingredient listed to “cut in”.
