Gluten Free Vegan Apple Crisp Recipe: One of our favorite apple dessert recipes, low fat, naturally sweetened with a handful of raisins & a bit of agave or other liquid sweetener.
For an extra-special treat, this dairy-free apple dessert is delicious with coconut ice cream, or coconut whipped cream dessert topping.
This recipe calls for all purpose gf flour mix, and we just happen to have a recipe for that, but use any mixture of gf flours that you prefer.

Although gluten free by nature, oatmeal may have a small amount of gluten from processing. If your gf tolerance is very low, we recommend using certified gluten free rolled oats, available from Bob's Red Mill and other sources online or in grocery stores.

Sweet apples and raisins together create plenty of sweetness and the lemon juice punches up the flavor.
We recommend liquid stevia for more sweetness if desired. If you don't want to use stevia, sprinkle 2 Tbsp raw cane sugar over the apples. You can also use sugar substitute instead of agave nectar in the topping, but then you may need more oil to make the topping crumbly
The topping should resemble granola. If it doesn't seem crumbly enough, add a little more oil and sweetener until it does, a tsp at a time.
Covering the crisp with foil or a lid for the first part of baking keeps the moisture in so the apples cook soft and moist. Otherwise, in the absence of sugar, they tend to dry out a bit. Also the topping gets browned before the apples are cooked.
