Description

Vegan apple crisp, with a super easy caramel sauce! Level up your fall dessert game with this super EASY vegan apple crisp with a crunchy oat crumble topping.


Ingredients

For the filling:

  • 3 cups of apples, peeled and chopped (about 3-4 apples)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt

For the topping:

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill Flaxseed Meal

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 or 9×9 square pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the apples, brown sugar, almond milk, coconut oil, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch, and salt. Transfer to the prepared pan.
  3. To make the topping, in a medium bowl, stir together the flour, oats, maple syrup, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and coconut oil until mixture comes together.
  4. Top the apples with the crisp topping mixture, distributing evenly over the apples.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until filling is bubbling and topping is crisp. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.

Notes

  • I used Ida Red for this, but you can use almost any kind of apple. I wouldn’t recommend using Honeycrisp, I tried this recipe with them and it turned out way too watery and mushy!
  • Don’t overbake this! It’s going to look not quite done at 30 minutes, but I promise it’s perfection.
