Apple On Top Dessert


TIME: 1 hour


  • Dairy Free


  • 4 cups apples peeled, cored and diced (McIntosh, Fuji or Red Delicious)
  • 3 Tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup quick cooking Certified Gluten Free oats
  • 1 cup Gluten Free flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup GF almond butter
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and coat a 9×13 pan with cooking oil.
  2. In a large bowl combine apples, 1Tablespoon honey, cinnamon and nutmeg and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together oats, GF flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. In a small bowl lightly beat the egg and then mix together with the almond butter, 1 Tablespoon olive oil, 2 Tablespoons honey and applesauce.
  5. Add egg mixture to flour mixture until a thick dough-like batter forms.
  6. Transfer batter to pan and press down evenly to make a crust at the bottom of the pan.  This was made easier by placing a piece of parchment paper on top and then pressing it down.
  7. Pour apple mixture over the crust and spread evenly.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F or until apples are soft but not brown.
  9. Let cool for a few minutes.  Serve warm topped with some vanilla GF yogurt, ice cream or a dairy free ice cream alternative.
