Healthy Vegan Apple Crisp
What are the best apples for apple crisp?
This apple crisp recipe is totally customizable. You can use your favorite kind of apple, but I personally, like to use a honey crisp apple. They are crunchy, sweet and just have an all over great flavor. For this recipe, I used both a honey crisp apple and a granny smith apple which gave this recipe a great crunch and flavor pairing.
If you know me, you know that I love recipes that double as breakfast for dessert. This vegan apple crisp recipe is healthy enough to eat for breakfast, but sweet enough to eat for dessert. I love adding some yogurt on top if i’m enjoying it for breakfast, or vanilla ice cream if i’m eating it for dessert.

How to make vegan apple crisp?
Making this apple crisp is so EASY and stress-free. It can be made in as little as two dishes and under 40 minutes. Plus, it will make your home smell so cozy, warm and ready for Fall.
To start, chop your apples into small bite sized pieces. I used a blend of Granny smith apples and Honey crisp for this recipe. In total, there was about 3 cups of chopped apples.
Then, in your baking dish, drizzle maple butter and sprinkle cinnamon on top of the diced apples and mix until the apples are well coated. The maple butter is from Trader Joe’s and it’s a seasonal item and one of my absolute favorites! It tastes so great on top of desserts, toasts or as a dipping sauce for fruit. If you have a Trader Joe’s nearby, I highly recommend getting it this season before they are all out.
Once you have your apples coated, set this dish aside and start to make the streusel topping. To do this, simply combine the dry ingredients.
This recipe calls for oat flour, if you do not have any oat flour on hand, you can easily make your own by blending oats in your blender for about 15-30 seconds.
In a small bowl, combine oats, oat flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, ground flaxseed meal, and avocado oil. Mix until a crumbly mixture starts to form, then sprinkle this over the apples.
That’s it! The hardest part is over. Then, simply bake the apple crisp in the oven at 350F for 30 minutes.
Top this dessert off with vanilla bean ice cream, whipped cream or yogurt for a healthier alternative.
