For the Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 apples cored and thinly sliced about 1/4" (I didn't feel the need to peel mine.)*
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 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)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a 9-inch cast iron skillet or alternatively spray a 9-inch pie plate with a natural cooking spray.
  • Toss apple slices in cinnamon and add to the heated skillet. Cook for about 3-5 minutes to soften.
  • While apples are cooking, toss blackberries in cornstarch, maple syrup and lemon juice and set aside. Also, combine all crisp ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Remove skillet from heat and add blackberry mixture to apples. Sprinkle oat mixture over the top.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes. Allow crisp to cool slightly before spooning out.
  • Serve warm and with vanilla ice cream, Greek yogurt, cool whip or coconut cream, if desired.


*I used organic gala apples. Feel free to use your favorite apple variety.
