Grain-Free Apple & Pear Crisp

Adapted from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook by Elana Amsterdamn



    • 1/2 cup apple juice
    • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
    • 2 tsp grass fed gelatin ([aflink u=""]I used this one[/aflink])
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
    • 2 pears
    • 3 apples


    • 2 cups almond meal
    • pinch of salt
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp cardamom
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
    • 1/4 cup maple syrup
    • 1 tbs vanilla extract


    1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Peel, core and slice your pears and apples. Cut them to be roughly 1/4 inch thick.
    3. To make your filling, whisk together your apple juice, lemon juice, gelatin, and spices in a medium sized bowl.
    4. Add your chopped up pears and apples into the whisked apple juice mixture. Stir to coat.
    5. Transfer your now coated pears and apples into your baking dish. I used a 9 inch pie pan.
    6. To make your topping, combine your almond meal, salt, and spices in a mixing bowl.
    7. In a seperate bowl whisk together your coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk until it all comes together into a thicker mixture.
    8. Pour your whisked coconut oil mixture into your dry topping ingredients. Using you hands, or a wooden spoon, mix it together until a course dough forms. Your mixture will be crumbly.
    9. Crumble your mixture on-top of the apples and pears in your pie dish.
    10. Cover the top of your crisp with aluminum foil, and bake for 45 minutes.
    11. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the top of your crisp is golden brown, and the juiced in your crisp are bubbly.
    12. Let your crisp cool for 15-30 minutes before serving.
    13. Dish up, and serve! This goes really well with ice cream, or coconut whipped cream!!
    14. Enjoy!
