cobbler in a bowl with apples and a spoon

Gluten Free Apple Pear Crisp


This delicious Gluten Free Apple Pear Crisp is the perfect dessert for cooler weather. This recipe is also dairy-free and vegan, with a light and flaky topping.



For the fruit base:

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 5 medium sweet red apples, such as Fuji, Honeycrisp, or Gala
  • 2 large pears
  • 1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice (from about ½ of a medium lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons raisins

For the crumble:

  • ¾ cup cassava flour, or your favorite gluten-free flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  2. Spray a 8”x 8” baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  3. Chop the apples and pears into bite-sized pieces and place in a medium mixing bowl. Stir the lemon juice and raisins with the chopped apple and pear and pour into the baking dish.
  4. Cover the baking dish with foil and place in the oven for 30 minutes.
  5. While the fruit is baking, make the crumble topping.
  6. Combine the cassava flour, baking powder, cinnamon, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and coconut oil in a medium mixing bowl.
  7. Use your fingers to mix the ingredients together to form the crumb topping.
  8. Carefully remove the baking dish from the oven and dollop the crumb topping on top.
  9. Place the baking dish back in the oven, uncovered, for another 30 minutes.
  10. Serve hot.


  1. The topping will not be super crumbly, but more like a biscuit topping that will rise a little bit when it is baked.
