When it comes to fall desserts, I am team Apple all the way. I love pumpkin pie too, but not like I love an apple crisp or apple pie. I wanted to create a dessert that would be simple to keep gluten free but still taste absolutely incredible. This gluten free apple & pear crisp hits all the right notes. It has tender and caramelized fruit topped with a perfectly sweet, crisp topping. Serve with some vanilla ice cream and you can’t go wrong!
I love the combination of these two delicious fall fruits. The pears bring a lovely sweetness and the granny smith apples bring both the sweet and the tart. They pair so well together.
These peeled and sliced fruits get tossed with some sugar and tapioca starch before placed in the dish. As it bakes it creates a beautiful caramel sauce, it is divine!
Those sweet and caramelized fruits get topped with the easiest and most delicious crisp topping. It is made in a bowl, no other kitchen gadgets needed. I use a combination of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oats, Gluten Free Flour and Pecans. Toss those with some coconut sugar (or brown sugar) and some ghee (or coconut oil) and you will have the perfect crisp topping.
Our favorite way to enjoy this apple & pear crisp is topped with some dairy free vanilla bean ice cream. Nado Moo is our favorite brand. We also love coconut whipped cream on top.
