Why For Two?
Have you ever had a craving for apple pie, but lack the desire to make the whole thing? Or want a taste of something, but not the whole thing?
That’s where the Healthy Gluten Free Apple Crisp For Two comes in! This recipe is assembled in a snap and crisps up in the oven, bringing the flavors of the apple out and adding a nice crunch!
What Do I Need To Make The Apple Crisp
In addition to a large ramekin or a small pot similar to the one I have, you will need the following ingredients:
Your favorite apples
All purpose flour
I went with Red Delicious apples, but you can honestly pick your favorite. if you are going for more of a fall vibe, then I would recommend Honeycrisp.
For The Apples
For this all you will need is a small bowl of diced apples.
To bring out the sweetness of the apples, coat them in lemon juice, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt.
For the Crumble
What would a Gluten Free Apple Crisp be without a crispy crumble?
It’s simple! In a small bowl, mix the coconut sugar, cinnamon, oats, all purpose flour, and chopped nuts. Then, melt the vegan butter in the microwave and add it to the small bowl. Be sure to break up the large clumps.
The gluten free flour you use may affect the amount of butter the crumble soaks up, which is why I recommend using Bobs red Mill 1:1.If you find the crumble is too wet, add more oats or flour (potentially both depending on how wet it is) until the mixture becomes drier.
After that, bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, until the crumble is golden brown and serve with your favorite vanilla dairy free ice cream for the ultimate treat.

A Simple and Healthy Gluten Free and Dairy Free Crunchy Apple Crisp that is the perfect shareable size. It may be so good, you may not even want to!
2 Medium-sized apples (or 3–4 small ones)
6 Tbsp quick oats
1/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour (I used Bobs 1:1 All purpose gluten free flour)
3 Tbsp chopped nuts ( I chose Pistachios, but any nut will do)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp water
3–4 Tbsp melted vegan butter (I used whipped butter)
3–4 Tbsp coconut sugar (depending how sweet you like it)
Dash of sea salt
Chop the apples into small pieces and place them in a small bowl.
Add the lemon juice, 1 Tbsp coconut sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, water and sea salt together in the small bowl and mix until the apples are coated.
Place your coated, diced apples into a large ramekin or similar container.
Combine the remaining ingredients (except for the melted butter) together in a small bowl and mix the ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl.
Add the melted butter to the small bowl and break up any clumps. You may need to add a little more flour or oats depending on the flour you used.
Pour the crumble over the apples in the baking dish and bake in an oven at 350 for 50-60 minutes. If you prefer a crispy crumble I would bake it at the higher end of that range.
Serve hot with your favorite dairy free ice cream and drizzle honey for added flavor.
*You can add more apple if you would like, just be sure to have a larger dish on hand. I am more a crumble fan than an apple fan so feel free to adjust as you see fit. *You can attempt to reduce the butter and coconut sugar by 1 Tbsp, but your crumble may not as strong of a butter or sweet taste. *As with all my recipes, this is a rough estimate of the nutrition label. I used whipped butter, and 3 Tbsp of coconut sugar to calculate this.

I don’t know about you, but I think these Peanut Butter Banana Blondies are the legit Bomb .Com
After all, what could beat the most satisfying combo of Peanut Butter, Bananas, and Honey?
We’ve all been there, those spotty bananas eyeing you as soon as you enter the kitchen…
They have one day before their bad, but you don’t want to waste the sweetness of the fructose coming to its full bloom!
Then it hits! Not banana bread, but Banana Blondies! With hues of honey and peanut butter the ultimate breakfast and snack overtakes your mind!
And your tastebuds 😉
One of the best things about these is how versatile they are. Since they are gluten free and dairy free all your dietary restricted friends can enjoy! I have a few friends who fall into these categories and whenever we attend a potluck I always make it a priority to make something they can enjoy.
As well as for myself of course because I fall into both of those categories. Gluten free 100% of the time and dairy free about 70% of the time. Some days are better than others…and some are full of goat cheese staring you in the face with crackers and red pepper jam…
Any-who, as I was saying these Peanut Butter Banana Blondies are great for breakfast, a mid afternoon snack, second breakfast, and dessert.
You are not seeing it wrong I did say second breakfast because some days you need a breakfast after your breakfast.
I know what you’re thinking…that looks like a lot of collagen and you’re right in a sense (these ingredients are spread over many servings) but let me tell you why I opt for collagen in this case instead of a typical vegan/dairy free protein.
Frankly, I am fed up with using pea protein blends. Yes there is egg protein as well and hemp but I despise the texture and the taste. Every time I hear people say you can mask the taste I have to wonder…
Why would someone lie about that?
Seriously though, if you’ve tried straight or even flavored hemp protein and pea protein you know what I’m talking about!
Yes there are good brands and blends here and there but the beauty of collagen is that you can add it to baked goods without the texture changing. When you use a pea or a hemp beyond it’s serving size things usually tend to get, well…
You can draw your own conclusions there but trust me! Collagen is the way to go for this recipe. You can also omit this if you would prefer not to have it in the recipe just remember, as I mentioned before collagen doesn’t affect the texture of the recipe so there is no reducing liquid or changing ingredient amounts.
The same goes for my collagen glaze, you can omit the collagen if you would like but you will miss out on the added benefits of a higher protein treat that will keep you satiated longer.
But it’s your choice, either way these Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Blondies will turn out divine!
