Treat Yourself to a Gluten Free Apple Crumble.
Baking is not a thing of the past with gluten free sweets. You just need to be clever with substitutes.
The crumble is so easy to make. I did not use a pastry crust. I just sprayed a pan with Pam cooking spray and then piled on the sliced apples that had been mixed with the light brown sugar, Stevia in the raw and cinnamon with a pinch of Kosher salt. (using half Stevia and half brown sugar in both the apples and the crumble also cuts down the calories considerably without sacrificing the taste.
The next step is top make the crumble topping. I made mine in a food processor, but you can just as easily use a pastry cutter or fork and a big bowl.
Sprinkle on the crumble topping and make sure it covers the pan well. I usually spray any baked item like this with Pam before I bake it to get it a nice golden brown.
All that is left is to bake the gluten free apple crumble until it is golden brown and the apples are tender.
The crumble is good both warm or cold. When I serve it cold, I sometimes top it with a warm custard. Warm it is great served with whipped topping or a scoop of ice cream or sorbet. Who says you can’t have pastry type dishes on a Gluten free diet? Not me!See more Gluten free recipes here.
