This Crock Pot gluten free apple cobbler is a delicious fall dessert that’s so easy to make! Try this healthy recipe to celebrate the flavors of fall.
Apple cobbler is one of my favorite comfort foods of fall. It’s easier to make than apple pie, but it still has all that delicious flavor.
When we came home with 68 apples from an apple picking excursion, I knew this gluten free apple cobbler wouldn’t be far behind.
The house is filled with that irresistible cinnamon aroma while this cobbler is cooking. It’s the perfect scent of fall, and it gets my family in the spirit of the season. This gluten free apple cobbler never lasts long in my house.
Gluten Free Apple Cobbler Tips
I like using my slow cooker for cobblers so I don’t have to keep a close eye on them in the oven. With the longer low temperature bake time, the apples get nice and soft without losing their texture.
This apple corer, my favorite new kitchen tool, made the apple prep easier than usual for this recipe. I can’t believe I’ve made it through so many falls without this handy device. I love how it opens up to easily release the cores. My kids have been using it to prepare their own apple snacks during the day. It’s one less kitchen hazard to worry about!
To get the best texture for the gluten free apple cobbler topping, I remove the top from the Crock Pot for the last 10 minutes to help the topping dry out a bit. If you want a more moist topping, you can skip this step.
Gluten Free Apple Cobbler
For the Apple Filling
- 3 lbs apples peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tbs gluten-free flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Place the apple slices in a large bowl. Add the maple syrup, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to the apples. Stir to coat evenly, then transfer the apples to the slow cooker.
- To make the cobbler topping, place the cornmeal, oats, flour, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. (I use the same bowl I just used for the apples. No need to wash.) In a small bowl, stir together the egg, coconut oil, maple syrup, and coconut milk. Pour this mixture into the oat mixture, and stir to combine well. The mixture should stick together easily, so add another tablespoon or two of milk if it seems too dry. Transfer the cobbler topping mixture to the slow cooker and spread it evenly on top of the apples.
- Cook the cobbler on low for 2 hours, or until the apples are tender. Remove the top and cook for another 10 minutes. Enjoy warm or at room temperature. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.
This recipe costs a total of $8.83 to make, or $1.10 per serving. Enjoy this gluten free apple cobbler on its own or with a scoop of ice cream for a delicious fall dessert!
