Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

Hi everybody,

This week’s post is not mine but from a very talented blogger friend of mine. I am very exciting for her to share this yummy Gluten-Free Apple Crisp recipe with you as we are getting closer to the holidays!


Hi there, I’m Kara! Founder of Life Well Lived, lover of allll things chocolate, obsessed with recreating recipes to be healthier, and creator of Transform: Nutrition Bootcamp {where I’ve helped hundreds of women change their nutrition, lose weight, and change their lives}.

It’s November again, and if you’re anything like me, there’s so much to look forward to about this season. With the exception of the colder temps, I love the changing colors, the time with family, and all the delicious desserts that come with this time of year.

In my family, Thanksgiving can’t be celebrated without apple crisp. It’s a seasonal staple in our house. But this year I’m especially excited for apple crisp because of this easy + simple + delicious recipe. But the best part of this recipe is that it’s free of all the added sugars that most crisps contain. This Gluten-Free Apple Crisp is sweetened with only pure maple syrup. I promise, your friends and family won’t even know it’s a healthier version.


You can prep it ahead of time and store in the fridge for a day or two. And when you’re ready to make it just pop it in the oven to bake.

This apple crisp has the perfect sweet, crisp topping with soft, cinnamon apples. The perfect dessert or breakfast {don’t you love when a dessert can act as a breakfast too?!}. The warm apple smell that will fill your house is enough of a reason to make this recipe.

 The secret ingredient to my crisp is using Seven Sundays Blueberry Chia Buckwheat Muesli. Side note: my family is now obsessed with their cereal. I love that they use simple ingredients, no refined sugars, and it’s delicious. Immediately, I knew after my first bite that I needed to use it for my next recipe. You can snag some here. If you choose not to use the muesli, I’ve included a substitute below.

4. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until fruit is bubbling and topping is golden brown.  


This would be PERFECT with homemade coconut whip cream or a scoop of Coconut Bliss ice cream!
