For the Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 ½ lbs. apples approx. 5-6 medium size apples*

For the Topping:

  • ¾ cup Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt or other salt of choice
  • cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • cup roughly chopped pecans
  • ¾ cup loosely packed brown sugar
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted vegan butter 1 stick, cut into small cubes, softened)


  • Make the Filling: 
  • Peel, core and slice the apples into ¼” slices. You don’t want the slices to be too thin otherwise they will disintegrate but if they’re too thick they won’t cook through. Sprinkle sliced apples immediately with a bit of lemon juice and toss until coated.
  • In a large bowl, mix together all the filling ingredients except for the apples.
  • Add the apples to the filling mixture and mix until well coated.
  • Make the Topping: 
  • Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, except for the butter. Whisk together. 
  • Add the softened cubed butter and pinch it together with the dry ingredients until a softened crumbly mixture forms. It should look moist and not dry. Set aside.
  • Assembly: 
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease an 8” or 9” cast iron skillet or baking pan with oil or cooking spray.
  • Spread the apple filling mixture into the pan.
  • Sprinkle the apples with all of the oat topping.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown and the apples are tender and cooked through.


  • Apple Preferences: I love using Honeycrisp, Fuji and Granny smith in my baking. A mix is always delicious too!
  • If the crisp topping is browning too fast, lay a piece of aluminum foil over the top of the pan, loosely covering it, halfway through baking.
