Gluten Free Apple Crumble

  , ,

June 18, 2016

I made this gluten free by substituting the oats for quinoa flakes but you can still use oats if you have no allergy

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs


For the apple mixture:

8-10 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into ¼-inch thick slices

½ cup packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ teaspoon salt

For the crisp topping:

1 cup quinoa flakes

¾ cup plain gf flour

¼ cup packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes


Make the apple mixture:

1Place sliced apples in the slow cooker. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir. (Be sure to use a non-metal spoon so as not to scratch your slow cooker insert.) Let sit while you prepare the crisp topping.

Make the crisp topping:

1Combine flakes, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Stir until well combined. Using your fingertips, work the butter into the oat mixture until the mixture starts to clump together.

2Stir the apple mixture one more time and then spread apples out into an even layer. Sprinkle on the crisp topping.

Cook the apple crisp:

1Cook on high for 2 hours or on low for 3-3½ hours, until apples are soft. Turn off heat and let stand for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour before serving (keeping the lid on). Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.

This is beautiful and easy recipe, I used oats in the crumble, and leftover pears, apples and some frozen berries. 😋

First time I’ve made a crumble in the slow cooker and this one was sooooo good. Easy to make and tasted amazing!
