Fall and apple crisp go together like… well… fall and apple crisp. This recipe is made in a skillet and is gluten free and vegan. For those with these dietary protocols, it doesn’t… fall… short on flavor one bit! Oh and PS – it has some yummy caramel flavor which takes the flavor over the top!
Apple crisp is one of those recipes where you don’t have to sacrifice taste for healthiness. You don’t need to add a lot of sugar because all of the ingredients melt together to create the perfect taste. Just a little (organic) brown sugar and you are good to go.
I know that most people peel apples for these kinds of recipes. I prefer to keep the skin intact. If you want to peel your apples, be my guest. That’s 10 minutes of my life I will never get back. Plus, the majority of an apple’s nutrients are in the peel. No judgment if you are an apple peeler. We are accepting of everyone here at Pink Fortitude.
And I will not confirm nor deny if I eat half of the apples as I’m cutting them. Just sayin.
Apples are always at the top of the EWG’s Dirty Dozen list. Even if you can’t afford to purchase organic produce, at least try to purchase organic apples. Also, you should be aware of the new non-browning apples. It is me, or does learning about pesticides and genetically modified food scare you half to death? We have two apple trees growing in our backyard. You know what I love – being apple to pick apples from the tree and know that I’m eating something pure, fresh, organic, and homegrown.

There are three modifications you can make to this recipe. First, the caramel. “Real” caramel is delicious. I’m not going to deny that. But it’s made with so much sugar! I make my Caramel Dip from dates.
Second is the crumble topping. Most crumble topping recipes are made with a combination of flour and oats. Oats may not be ideal for everyone’s protocol. You can make it with 100% cassava flour. Or, you can do half and half – one cup cassava flour, one cup oats. It’s up to you.
The third option is to use either apple cider vinegar for a super tart taste, or apple cider, as more of a traditional taste.
If you don’t have Apple Pie Spice, you can add a combination of cinnamon, ginger, Allspice, cardamom, and nutmeg.
