This is the ultimate lazy girl’s dessert recipe. It’s rustic, fuss-free, only requires the fruit and a few pantry staples and is entirely gluten free and vegan. I have a few crisp recipes on the blog and they’re all pretty similar and have all been a major success. I basically just change up the fruit combo- blueberry and peach, pear and cranberry and apple.

The magic begins by heating cinnamon dusted apples in a cast-iron skillet. If you don’t have one, this is the perfect excuse to buy one. They’re super cheap and make everything taste better. You can use a pie plate and skip pre-cooking the apple slices, but I really like how cooking them makes them all cinnamony and soft.

For the crisp topping, we’re working with oats and almond meal; which gives the crisp such a nice nutty flavor and hearty texture. The crisp topping and slightly tart fruit filling are pretty much a match made in food heaven.

  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup**
  • 1/8 cup 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • For the Crisp:
  • 1 cup rolled oats gluten-free, if preferred
  • ½ cup almond meal/flour almonds ground into flour
  • ¼ cup coconut or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted (other oils or butter will work)

  2. Toss apple slices in cinnamon and add to the heated skillet. Cook for about 3-5 minutes to soften.
