  • 1 cup of whole oats
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup raw turbinado sugar
  • cup unbleached white whole wheat flour *can also use spelt or gluten-free flour
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ cup finely diced walnuts
  • ¼ cup coconut oil slightly melted and cooled
  • 3 tbsp softened butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Apple mixture:

  • 6-7 large baking apples peeled and sliced into small wedges
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon for sprinkling I like a lot of cinnamon, so I do a generous sprinkle
  • ¼ cup raw cane sugar for sprinkling on apples


  • Combine all topping ingredients into a mixer
  • While mixing, preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • When combined your topping should be crumbly
  • Peel and slice your apples and arrange in a medium-size baking dish (I use an 8 ½ x 11)
  • Sprinkle generously with cinnamon (1-2 tsp or more to taste)
  • Then top with about ¼ cup raw cane sugar
  • Sprinkle your topping mixture over apples, then bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes
  • Let cool for about 15 minutes before serving


You can easily make this recipe gluten-free using gluten-free oats and a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend.  I recommend King Arthur brand.
