Step 1: Preheat Oven

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Step 2: Prepare the Apples

Peel and slice 4 large Granny Smith apples. Peel, core, and slice 4 cups of Rome apples, or any other baking apple of your choice. Toss the sliced apples in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to prevent them from browning.

Step 3: Make the Filling

In a separate mixing bowl, combine 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon. Add in the sliced apples and mix until everything is well-coated.

Step 4: Create the Topping

In another bowl, combine 1/2 cup gluten-free flour blend, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup unsalted butter. Mix everything together with a fork until it becomes crumbly.

Step 5: Assemble & Bake

Layer half of the coated apple mixture into a lightly greased baking dish then sprinkle half of the topping over it. Repeat with the remaining apple mixture and top it off with the rest of the topping mix. Ensure that all areas are evenly covered before placing it in the oven for approximately 45 minutes or until top is golden brown.

Step 6: Serve Warm

Once done, remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Your guests will surely ask you for second helpings!

The Gluten Free Granny’s Apple Stuff Recipe not only provides nourishment but also has a heart-warming taste that everyone will enjoy. It is perfect for dessert after a night of scrumptious dinner or as a snack.

Substitutions and Variations

 You won't believe it's gluten-free!
You won’t believe it’s gluten-free!

Let me tell you something: cooking is all about improvisation. Yes, it’s important to stick to the recipe as much as possible but sometimes, we don’t have all the ingredients or we just want to add our own twist to it. Fear not, my friend! With this Gluten-Free Granny’s Apple Stuff Recipe, there are a few substitutions and variations you can try out.

First off, let’s talk apples. This recipe uses a mix of Rome and Granny Smith apples but if those aren’t available in your area, you can substitute them with other baking apples like Honeycrisp, Pink Lady or even Gala. Just make sure you stick to tart apples so that the filling doesn’t turn out too sweet.

Now, let’s talk about the gluten-free flour blend. If you don’t have one on hand, you can substitute it with almond flour or coconut flour. Just keep in mind that these flours have different textures and absorbency levels so you may need to adjust the amount of liquid in the recipe.

For a dairy-free version of this recipe, swap out the unsalted butter for vegan butter or coconut oil. You won’t taste a difference!

If you want to switch things up a bit, try adding some chopped pecans or walnuts into the crumble topping for some extra crunch. Or drizzle some salted caramel sauce over the top for an indulgent treat.

Lastly, if apples aren’t your thing (I get it – not everyone’s a fan), why not try this recipe with pears instead? They have a similar texture when baked and would work great as a substitution.

Experiment with different substitutions and variations until you find what works best for your taste buds. The possibilities are endless!

If you’re someone who’s always short on time but loves a sweet treat at the end of your meal, this section is for you. You can prepare this recipe ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy it. Here’s how:

* To make-ahead: Prepare the recipe as directed and allow it to cool completely. Cover it tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to two days.

* To reheat: Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Allow the apple crisp to sit at room temperature while your oven preheats. Then, cover it with foil and bake for 10-15 minutes until heated through.

If you have leftover apple crisp that hasn’t been stored in the refrigerator, here are some handy tips on how to store it:

* Room temperature: If you plan on eating the leftover crisp within a day or two, simply cover it with foil or plastic wrap and keep it at room temperature for up to 2 days.

* Refrigerator: For longer storage, place your cooled apple crisp in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Remember, when reheating this dessert, make sure not to overheat. Overheating may cause the topping to burn or become hard. To avoid this, simply cover the dish with aluminum foil before placing back after refrigeration into the oven.

Tips for Perfect Results

Not your grandma’s apple crisp… Or maybe it is?

If you’re in the mood for a delicious and healthy apple dessert that’s gluten-free, dairy-free, and full of flavor, then this Gluten-Free Granny’s Apple Stuff Recipe is for you! However, to ensure perfect results every time you make it, here are some essential tips and tricks to keep in mind.

1. Use the right apples

For this recipe, you’ll need to select good baking apples like Rome apples, Granny Smith apples, Pink Lady, or Honey crisp apples. These will hold their shape and not get too mushy when baked.

2. Slice your Apples Thinly

To ensure your apple slices bake evenly and offer a crunchy texture without losing their natural flavors, slice them into thin pieces that are equally sized so that they can cook evenly.

3. Use gluten-free flour blend.

For those who suffer from celiac disease or gluten intolerance, it is crucial to use gluten-free flour blends instead of regular ones. You can easily find them in supermarket stores or online shops. This recipe uses 4 cups of gluten-free flour blend.

4. Add lemon juice

Lemon juice adds a bright tanginess to the filling while giving it an extra boost of flavor. It also provides the acidity needed to balance the sweetness of the sugar you use.

5. Consider alternative sweeteners

If you’re looking for a healthier alternative, try replacing granulated sugar with honey or maple syrup which will give it their own unique flavor and taste along with all-natural sweetness.

6. Don’t forget cinnamon

Cinnamon is one of the key ingredients in apple pies and apple crisps because it gives them an irresistible aroma and flavor while enhancing the natural sweetness of the apple mixture.

7. Add a crunch

Adding nuts such as walnuts or almonds to your crumble topping can add a delicious crunch to your dessert without impacting its gluten-free and dairy-free nature.

8. Keep an eye on the baking time

Different ovens require different baking times, so monitor your dessert’s progress and remove it from the oven only when the topping is golden brown and your apple mixture is bubbling around the edges.

By following these tips, your Gluten-Free Granny’s Apple Stuff Recipe will come out perfect every time. So, get ready to savor and enjoy this delicious dessert in no time!

Granny taught me the simplest ingredient that went into a cobbler. Since we have a son that has a gluten sensitivity, everything now must go through the gluten free process. We now use brown rice flour or white rice flour as a substitute for our simple cobblers.
