For Apple Filling:

For Crisp Oat Topping:


  • Preheat your oven to 350° F. 
  • Place the apples in an 8x8 casserole baking dish and sprinkle with arrowroot flour and cinnamon. Stir together lemon juice, maple syrup, and water, then pour over the apples.
  • Stir the apples until they are well-coated with the arrowroot, maple syrup and lemon juice, then set aside. 
  • In a medium bowl, combine all the dry ingredients needed for the crisp - oats, nuts, almond flour, and salt. Stir until well-combined.
  • Add the coconut oil/butter and maple syrup  to the crisp mixture and stir again. 
  • Scoop spoonfuls of the topping over the apple mixture. It's best to leave a little space between the spoonfuls to allow some heat to escape from the apple mixture during baking. 
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
