Gluten free apple crisp

Okay, this was so good I had to share. I usually do not like apple crisp at all but make it for my husband but this stuff was delicious! I loved it! I had quite a few apples that needed used up so I searched out a recipe on the internet that looked good to me and adapted it to be gluten free. Here is the recipe....

It makes a 9x13 pan size.

10 cups all-purpose apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, melted

Obviously I used a gluten free flour for all flour the recipe calls for. I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free flour and did not add xantham gum and it did not need it.
I also did not melt the butter. I just cut it into pieces and used my hands to mix every thing together until I had a nice crumb topping and I do not use butter, I use a dairy free margarine since I am severly limiting my dairy. Also, I used certified gluten free oats as well, Bobs Red Mill brand. I also did not measure the apples. I just peeled and cut and tossed into the pan until I thought I had enough and when I had the apples and cinnamon and sugar mixture all mixed together I sprinkled a little apple cider on top of that just for fun.

In to the oven it goes......

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C).
Place the sliced apples in a 9x13 inch pan. Mix the white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples. Pour water evenly over all.
Combine the oats, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 45 minutes

It was delicious and I served vanilla ice cream on top of Dans and a vanilla soy ice cream on top of mine.


It was great. Next time I will share the turkey soup recipe, it was so good, especially with the homemade noodles!

Also, on a side not, can I just say it is snowing outside right now! It's only October 15th, wonder what this means for our winter.
