  • 1 cup whole oats make sure that they are certified GF
  • ½ cup Purecane brown Purecane brown is a zero calorie substitute for regular brown sugar that tastes and bakes like brown sugar.
  • cup unbleached gluten-free all-purpose flour *see notes for non-GF variation
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup walnuts finely diced
  • ¼ cup coconut oil slightly melted and cooled
  • 3 tablespoon softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Apple mixture:

  • 6-7 large baking apples peeled and sliced into small wedges
  • 1-2 teaspoon cinnamon for sprinkling I like a lot of cinnamon, so I do a generous sprinkle
  • ¼ cup Purecane granulated sugar substitute 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 teaspoon or more to taste)
  • Then top with about ¼ cup Purecane sugar substitute
  • Sprinkle your topping mixture over apples, then bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes
  • Let cool for about 15 minutes before serving


  • If gluten is of no concern, you can swap out the gluten-free flour for all-purpose white flour or spelt flour.
  • When coating the apples in cinnamon, I recommend starting with 1 to 2 teaspoons but when I make this recipe, I sprinkle the cinnamon with a very heavy hand -the more the better!
