Apples: I like to use Granny Smith apples. Their tart flavor pairs well with the sweetness of the sugars and warm spices. Pink lady and Honeycrisp apples also work well in this recipe.
Sugars: Combining brown sugar and regular granulated sugar adds to the sweetness and warmth of this recipe.
Spices: Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice give warmth and coziness to this recipe.
Lemon Juice: Used in the recipe to prevent the apples from turning brown. It does not alter the taste.
Apple Cider: When combined with the other ingredients the apple cider gives the filling extra juiciness and flavor.
Butter and Vanilla: Both add flavor and warmth to the topping.
Oats and Oat Flour: Gives the topping its structure. Make sure to use both gluten-free oats and oat flour.
Xanthan Gum: Its purpose is to act as the binding agent when baking without gluten. It helps hold onto some moisture in the recipe and helps provide structure.
Sugars: Gives the topping added sweetness.
Salt: Adds flavor and balances the sweetness.
First, mix up the apple filling. Wash and cut 5-6 granny smith apples into 1/4 in slices, and coat with a mixture of brown sugar, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, salt, and apple cider.
Next, mix up the oat crumble topping. Melt the butter and combine it with vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Add the gluten-free oats, gluten-free oat flour, salt, xanthan gum, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and mix well.
Layer the apple filling in a greased 9×13 baking dish. Distribute the gluten-free oat topping evenly over the apple filling. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes until the topping is browned and the apple filling starts to bubble.
