Single-serve gluten-free apple crisp with ice ream

Gluten-free apple crisp


Are you looking for a gluten-free apple crisp without any oats? I know the struggle. All the recipes out there use oats. And a lot of celiacs are avoiding them. So, I created my version of this crumble which is not only gluten-free, but also oat-free and vegan. And surprisingly, it is SO delicious. It tastes somewhat like strudel, but better.

The ingredients for this apple crumble are quite easy and you can change almost all of them. The banana serves as a binder for the crumble. And it also gives sweetness, since there is no sugar. The puffed quinoa can also be puffed rice, puffed millet etc…If you don’t like pine nuts, replace them with walnuts or chopped hazelnuts. Raisins, forget about them if you are not into it. Maple syrup can become honey, or any other syrup/sweetener you like.

Ready in 25 minutes from scratch, this recipe makes the perfect fall dessert. Prepare it as a snack or also for dinner. It is also possible to make it ahead and re-heat for a few minutes when
