  • 5 cups sliced peeled red apples, such as McIntosh, Empire or Cortland (about 3 large)

  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar plus 1/3 cup, divided

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided

  • ½ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats (see Ingredient Note)

  • cup chopped pecans

  • teaspoon salt

  • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Toss apples, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon together in a medium bowl. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.

  3. Stir flour, oats, pecans, the remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and salt together in the medium bowl. Cut in butter with your fingers or a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Spread evenly over the apples. Bake until the topping is golden and the filling is bubbling, 45 to 55 minutes. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.


Ingredient Note: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free" as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
