The recipe I’m sharing today is for an amazing gluten free, vegan, and refined sugar free apple crisp

Can you believe that I actually didn’t like warm cooked apples most of my life?  I think it was mainly a texture issue for me back then.  

My grandma is one of the best cooks around and she would make apple pie and baked apples all the time when we were growing up and I wanted nothing to do with them.  

I’m kicking myself now thinking of how much amazing apple dessert I missed out on growing up because I was such a picky eater!  

Well fast forward 10 years or so and apple desserts are now one of my all time favorites.  Apple pie, apple crisp, apple bars, you name it!   

This gluten free and vegan apple crisp is the perfect dessert! It's the perfect amount of sweetness and the warm spices give the apples so much flavor! It's also refined sugar free making it a healthy apple crisp! #glutenfree #dairyfree #vegan #fall #recipes #apple #refinedsugarfree

Apple desserts are some of the easier recipes to make refined sugar free since most call for brown sugar as the sweetener.  

Coconut sugar and maple syrup work wonderfully as brown sugar substitutes.  

I also already had an amazing recipe for a crumble topping so I knew this recipe was going to basically write itself.  

When I put everything together I couldn’t believe how awesome it tasted!  

It tasted like the traditional apple crisp I was used to and you would never guess it was gluten free, vegan, and refined sugar free. 

I always get so excited when I can remake my favorite recipes into healthier allergy friendly versions that taste the same as the traditional recipe! 

So let’s talk about what you need to make this gluten free and vegan apple crisp.
