The best flavors of the season, apples and almonds, come together in a hearty and sweet vegan apple crisp!


  • Apple Filling
  • 4 large Granny Smith or Honeycrisp apples (2 pounds, peeled, cored, and diced)
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot starch
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Almond Topping
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (divided)
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil (melted, plus more for greasing)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ̊F.
  2. Lightly grease a medium round, oval, or rectangular 1 1/2-quart baking dish with coconut oil.
  3. For the Apple Filling:
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced apples, maple syrup, lemon juice, arrowroot, and cinnamon. Toss to coat, and transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  5. For the Almond Topping
  6. Add 1/2 cup of the rolled oats and the raw almonds to a food processor and process for 15 seconds, or until a coarse meal forms.
  7. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and whisk in the remaining 1 cup rolled oats, cinnamon, and sea salt. Add the maple syrup and melted coconut oil and stir to combine.
  8. To Assemble: Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apple filling.
  9. Bake, uncovered, for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until the topping is deep golden brown and you can hear the liquid bubbling within the filling.
  10. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving.
