Vegan Apple Pecan Crisp (Free From: Gluten, Dairy & Refined Sugar)

This vegan apple pecan crisp is one of those “free from” desserts where you sacrifice absolutely nothing in terms of flavor. It’s decadent enough to have for dessert at a holiday feast, but light enough to serve for breakfast the next day.

  • 4-5 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (can sub regular all-purpose, whole wheat or a gluten-free AP)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (can sub porridge oats or quinoa flakes)
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup olive or coconut oil (melted)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Combine apples, lemon juice, 1/4 cup coconut sugar, 1 tsp of cinnamon and nutmeg (if using) in a bowl.
  • Empty apple mixture into a baking or pie dish.
  • Combine the oats, flour, the remaining 1/4 cup of coconut sugar, pecans, sea salt, the remaining 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and oil in a bowl. I use the same bowl I used for the apples for less clean up.
  • Distribute oat mixture evenly over the apples.
  • Bake for 50 minutes, or until golden brown and a fork easily goes through the apples.
  • Serve with a vegan vanilla ice cream (Nadamoo is our favorite back in the US) or a coconut yogurt (we’ve been loving COYO these days).
