Gluten-Free Crust Free Apple Pie – a true classic without the crust. The incredibly juicy apples are flavoured with cinnamon, fresh lemon juice and butter. The delicious topping is made with oats, coconut sugar, vanilla, butter and nuts. In this recipe, I used slivered almonds, but walnuts are just as delicious

Apple pie is all about comfort food. But often we 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 the greatest effort goes into making the crust, especially a gluten-free crust. Therefore I created a crust free apple pie, making this dessert recipe super simple, even for the novice cook.

Just imagine loads of delicious apples combined with cinnamon and oats, topped with a crunchy nut finish – a truly spectacular dessert! This tasty apple pie recipe should be on everyone’s favourite apple recipe list! 

What you need to know about gluten-free oats!

Do make suree your oats are certified gluten-free, as oats are often processed in facilities tha talso process wheat.
