Gluten Free Cranberry Apple Crisp


  • 7 apples, unpeeled, (it's easier!) cored and chopped; use a few more if they are small apples
  • 4 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 vanilla bean cut into bits; or use 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup fresh cranberries (optional)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup quinoa flakes, or gluten-free oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put the apples in a 9x13x2 inch Pyrex casserole dish. 

Sprinkle the lemon juice over the apples. Sprinkle the cut vanilla bean, or extract over the top of the apples. Stir the mixture around a bit with a spoon. 

Combine maple syrup, cinnamon, and quinoa (or gluten-free oatmeal) in a bowl. Cut in coconut oil. Sprinkle mixture over apples. Bake 45 minutes or until topping looks crisp.
