Gluten free apple crisp is even better when you add in toasted walnuts! I use gala, granny smith, or honeycrisp apples for this recipe. Serve it with some ice cream for the ultimate autumn treat!


  • 7 cups sliced apples
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cassava flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup chilled ghee


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Spread walnuts out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and toast the walnuts for about 7 minutes, until fragrant. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together apples, 1/4 cup coconut sugar, 1 tablespoon cassava flour, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Spread out on the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish.
  3. In the same large bowl, combine remaining cassava flour, walnuts and remaining coconut sugar. Cut in chilled ghee.
  4. Sprinkle crumble overtop the apple mixture. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the topping is golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream.
