PIN Paleo Vegan Apple Crisp with Coconut Flour
In the CINNAMON APPLE and PUMPKIN SPICE battle, WHO WOULD WIN?
In THIS CORNER: cinnamon apple goat cheese cheesecake AND this vegan apple crisp.
IN THAT CORNER: low carb keto pumpkin cheesecake AND pumpkin spice paleo magic cookie bars.
I MEAN. I don’t really know much about any kind of UFC fighting (which is what I am imagining here. Just, of course, FOOD STYLE) but I can ALMOST 100% tell you, without doubt, that would be the HARDEST battle in all the LAND.
How could you even choose? DON’T MAKE ME.
But, liiiike, since were eating a paleo apple dessert today, I think it’s best if we choose apple cinnamon for today, no? You know, just for the purposes of this post.
You can go back to eating pumpkin spice tomorrow with zero judgement. It just means you are doing the fall RIGHT.
Elephant in the room: we J-U-S-T ate a vegan gluten free apple crisp not even a month ago. Even Mr. FFF called me out on it. He was like “did you just not make an apple crisp, liiiike, 2 seconds ago? Why are you making another one? I think the apple crisp shenanigans need to chill out a bit yo.”
That is loosely translated though. He didn’t use those exact words, and he definitely did not say “liiike” or “yo.” <– Just wanted to make sure you know that his medical schooling is being put to use and his vocabulary is not that of his unedumacted wife.
BUT, internet friends, THAT almond flour apple crisp had OATMEAL. And THIS one is a coconut flour apple crisp that A-L-S-O happens to be a PALEO apple crisp recipe, which the other was not.
PRACTICALLY a totally different recipe.
Since we’re going GUNG HO “team apple crisp” today, I wanted to make sure that ALL of your basic needs were covered.
Real talk: apple crisp in the fall, is like air every day of your life. IT IS a basic human NEED.
Especially with ice cream on top. Bonus points for a drizzle of dairy free vegan caramel sauce too! <– If that is “basic” then I DON’T WANNA BE FANCY.
What are the best apples to use for apple crisp?
I feel like this is personal preference, so don’t hate me when I say that I like to use nice crisp, totally-sweet apples for apple crisp. My go-to’s are usually Fuji apples or Honeycrisp apples. However, some people like a little mix of sweet AND TART. If that is you, why don’t you get a little crazy and throw some Granny Smith’s in there?
All options will make you the most excited you have ever been to be called BASIC.
Paleo Crumble Topping FAQ
I guess not really a FAQ, but more a “how to make your mouth happy when you eat crumble topping because you want it be crispy” but, your answer: EAT this paleo vegan apple crisp with coconut flour ALMOST right away.
Wait 20 mins so your mouth doesn’t end in sad, burned-ness.
The crumb topping will lose a little bit of its crispness if you let it sit a long time, so you’re gonna wanna dig in ASAP
But, liiiike, I’m hoping you didn’t REALLY need me to tell you that?

For the apples:
- 4 Large Apples (or 6 small,) Peeled and thinly sliced 1/4 inch thick*
- 6 Tbsp Coconut sugar
- 2 Tbsp Almond flour
- 2 1/2 tsp Fresh lemon juice
- 2 tsp Coconut flour
- 2 tsp Ground cinnamon
For the crumbs:
- 1 Cup Pecans, roughly chopped (118g)
- 1/2 Cup Coconut sugar
- 6 Tbsp Almond flour (38g)
- 2 Tbsp Coconut flour (12g)
- 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 4 Tbsp Ghee, melted (or vegan butter)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, toss together all the apple ingredients until the apples are evenly coated and everything is mixed. Spread into a baking dish (I used a 10 inch cast iron skillet) and bake for 10 minutes.
- While the apples bake, mix the pecans, sugar, almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Once mixed, add the melted ghee and use your hands to mix until the mixture turns to crumbs.
- Spread the crumbs evenly over top of the pre-cooked apples, making sure to pack some together so you have some large chunks.
- Bake until the crumbs are very dark brown and crisp, about 40-45 minutes. Let cool for 15-20 minutes on the counter.
