Maple Apple Crisp, Gluten Free, Sugar Free and Vegan Friendly

 
 
 
 
Yesterday our fruit basket had three Granny Smith apples in it that were getting a little on the overripe side, and it was time to do something with them. My son has just recently started a gluten free and dairy free diet so I needed something that he could enjoy with us as well.  After looking around online I found a few recipes that I thought would work but none of them seemed exactly like I was looking for so I made up my own recipe! 

 
First, I peeled the apples, cored them, and sliced them paper thin.

 
With the apple slices I mixed in:
 1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon gluten free flour
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

 
After the spices and apple slices had been mixed in I placed the apple slices in a deep dish pie pan.
 
 

 
For the topping I mixed together:
1 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Agave Nectar
1/3 cup gluten free flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
 
 

 
I sprinkled the topping over the apples and baked it in a 375 Degree oven for thirty minutes.
 
 
The apple crisp had a wonderful taste to it, and even my picky eaters loved it.  This would be great with vanilla ice cream but of course we don't have any ice cream in the house since he is dairy free.
