This recipe is based on the Apple Crumble from, The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.


  • 4-5 large apples or pears (I used 3 pears and 2 apples)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup, plus 1 tbsp gluten free flour (I used Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, divided
  • 1 cup finely ground almonds (or walnuts, or pecans)
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar (I used light)
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats (or more, I ran out!)
  • 1/4 cup crushed walnuts (or pecans)
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, softened, but not melted (or softened Earth Balance)



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 (F).
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the apples, pears, granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon on the flour, and 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon until the apples & pears are well coated. Arrange them in an 8-inch square baking pan.
  3. In another medium-sized bowl, mix the remaining 3/4 cup flour, almond meal, brown sugar, nutmeg, remaining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, salt, rolled oats, and walnuts. Cut in the coconut oil until the mixture is crumbly.
  4. Evenly sprinkle the topping over the fruit mixture in the pan.
  5. Cover with foil, and bake for 45 minutes, until the apples are soft. Uncover, then bake until the crumble is crisp and golden, about 10 more minutes.
