Recipe: Gluten Free Apple Crumble

I currently have a giant bag of apples sitting in my kitchen, thanks to our apple picking trip last weekend.  I've been craving one of my favourite fall desserts, so tonight I threw together the most basic apple crumble recipe I've ever made, and even without all the extra bells and whistles, it was delicious.  Most recipes call for flour, but I generally don't bother, not even with gluten free flour.  The recipe is below.

Oven at 350F
Baking dish I use is a 1.4L dish


4 large apples, peeled, cored and cut into wedges (8-12 wedges per apple)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp. cornstarch (optional)
cinnamon to taste
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 cups gluten free rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter (I use dairy free Becel)
cinnamon to taste


1- Peel, core and slice apples and place in baking dish.  Pour lemon juice over and toss to coat to prevent browning.  Spread apple slices evenly on bottom of baking dish.

2- Sprinkle white sugar evenly over apples.  If using cornstarch, which will thicken the mixture, mix it with water before pouring over apple mixture.  Sprinkle desired amount of cinnamon evenly over apples.

3- In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. 

4- Melt butter and pour over oat mixture.  Combine until all dry ingredients are moistened from the butter.  Spread evenly over the apple mixture.

5- Bake at 350F for 45 minutes.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Serve with ice cream or whipped topping!
