Gluten-Free Crust Free Apple Pie – a true classic without the crust. The fresh juicy apples flavoured with cinnamon, lemon juice and creaminess of butter are what make this an outstanding apple pie.

The crunchy nutty topping is made with oats, coconut sugar, vanilla, butter and almonds. Adding a nice finish to this crust-free apple pie.




Apple pie is all about comfort food. But we often shy away from making a pie because of the crust. Yes, you can buy one that is ready-made, but it never tastes fresh and delicious.

We all know that making pie crust can sometimes be challenging. Especially gluten-free pie crust. This is why baking a crust-free apple pie is not only easier but lower on fats and calories.

Making this gluten-free apple dessert recipe is simple enough, even for novice cooks.

things to know about oats when following a gluten-free diet

Oats are a naturally gluten-free grain. However, when following a gluten-free diet, using oats that are certified gluten-free is essential.

Oats are often processed in facilities that also process wheat, and often they are grown next to wheat fields. This makes them vulnerable to gluten cross-contamination.
