Be guilt-free as you enjoy the healthiest and the best healthy low-carb apple crisp recipe. A vegan & gluten-free apple crisp dessert turned into a healthy breakfast.
Sometimes a dessert can be turned into a healthy breakfast that you'll enjoy almost every other day without feeling any guilty.
This low-carb apple crisp recipe is sugar-free, butter-free, gluten-free, and it's vegan.
I can hear you asking "ah! how's that possible?"
Well, darling, the end of year holidays are almost here, and I guess you and I want the same thing; enjoy delicious food as much you can without gaining weight, am I right?
Besides, I don't want you to have an apple crisp only for holidays, I want you to enjoy this apple crisp as long as apples are in the market.
So, I did my best to create for you the best healthy low-carb apple crisp recipe with very few but healthy ingredients.
How to make the best healthy apple crisp recipe
- You'll choose high sugared apples, in this case, no need to add any sugar. Golden and Gala apples are my choices.
- Replace butter with peanut butter; a very healthy choice. Try to use sugar-free peanut butter.
- Let's add some coconut cream so that we can have some tenderness and moisture in this apple crisp recipe.
- Cook the apples for a few minutes in coconut oil. Cold-pressed coconut oil pulls everything together, making this apple crisp so yummy.
How to cook low-carb apple crisp recipe?
Do you've got a sauté pan that goes in the oven?
You'll first cook your apples in the sauté pan then send them in the oven to bake. This will shorten the baking time, saving you time.
By using oatmeal flour and rolled oats, you'll also reduce the cooking time since these ingredients don't necessarily need any cooking.
I don't peel our apples, the skin is full of fiber, but be free to peel them.
Can you leave your apple crisp out overnight?
- Oh yes you can! you can make this apple crisp in the evening and leave it out on your kitchen counter for the morning breakfast.
- You can also keep it in the fridge for a few days and reheat it before serving. Just note, however, that the taste and the aspect will degrade with time.
I hope you'll love this healthy apple crisp recipe as we love it here. A recipe to enjoy anytime.
We don't top our low carb apple crisp with ice cream because we don't like ice creams over here, and again, we eat this for our breakfast...
Do feel free to top yours with healthier ice cream, but don't forget the deal; this is a healthy low carb apple crisp recipe!

The best healthy low-carb apple crisp recipe
- sauté pan
- Baking tin
- 2 ½ rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoon syrup or extra depending on your taste
- 3 tablespoon thick peanut butter
- 160 ml coconut cream
- 10 small apples
- 1 teaspoon ginger spice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon spice
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil in solid form
- 1 cup coconut cream
- Heat your oven at 190°
- Blend 2 cups of rolled oats to get oat flour and pour it in a big bowl
- Add the other ingredients together with the remaining rolled oats and form a dough that's thick in texture
- Cover the dough and set it aside
- Slice your apples into thick wedges and put them in a sauté pan that can go in the oven
- Sprinkle with ginger & cinnamon, add the coconut oil and cook them first at medium-high heat for about 8 mins
- Pour the coconut cream, stir gently and cut off the heat
- Break the dough into crumbles and spread them all over the apples
- Put the sauté pan in the already hot oven and bake for 17 mins or until the crumbles are golden
- Let the apple crisp cool and enjoy it while still warm
- Thank you so much for pining this recipe
- I used small apples so use a few if you have big size apples.
- I use homemade peanut butter that's thick in texture, if you are using a flowing peanut butter consider using 4-5 spoons but then add the coconut cream gradually.
- If you don't have a skillet/pan that can go the oven, then transfer your apples into a baking tin after adding coconut cream and bake till crumbles are golden.
I think I'm crazy. I read only 1 tsp apples in Ingredients section?
Monica, you are my angel tonight, thank you so much for noting that mistake. I had a hard time with my recipe card for the whole day, I wrote that recipe 3 times lol... I am waiting for your comment on the apple crisp.
Blessed time Monica.

Heyyy lovely, I wanted to start a diet and came across this recipe like that. I tried making it with my husband and I must say it is GOOOOOOOD. The crisp on its own is very good and the fact that it is mixed apples is a blessing. the hard(cruchy)-soft mix is AMAZING.
Cindy, thank you so so much. I am glad you love it. Many hugs to you lovely and I send you my thoughts as you do your diet.
A wonderful recipe that I must make with my organic apples. Love it.
This is an absolutely delicious recipe. Was gone in 1/2 hour! Thanks for the healthy replacement tips. Worked wonders
I will eat any version of an apple crisp but I'm so glad I found your low carb version for some moderation!
Love the ginger and cinnamon, bring such a warming spice to the apple crisp!

This was delicious! The topping was perfectly crispy, and it had just the right spice kick that I love in my fall desserts.
i love apple crisp and the fact that it's low carb, makes it even more desirable. Will surely try this recipe soon.
Right on time! I was just talking to my husband today and he said he'd love some apple crisp. I'll give this a try, I'm sure it will be a delight!

After the high calorie desserts at Thanksgiving I was ready for something good but not so rich. This lo-carb apple crisp didn't disappoint. And best of all, I didn't feel guilty when I had another serving the following day. This is going to be my go-to dessert when I want something sweet without guilt.
Thank you so much Marisa for making this recipe. Yes, this recipe is a guilt-free to make all year long.

Thank you Neha, yes this recipe is for all the long not only for holidays. I hope you'll love it.
How peculiar to use coconut cream and peanut butter! Two ingredients that I love, but that I never put in a crisp. I also never tried making a crisp healthier, that needs to be said. Looking forward to trying this healthier version soon!
I sure say YES to having dessert at breakfast. What a great recipe to add to the brunch menu. Perfect with vanilla ice cream or greek yogurt. Delicious.
This was so delicious! The peanut butter and coconut cream made it so unique and we devoured the whole thing!
Wow, I love that. Thank you so much for making this recipe, Ginny.

Thank you, Natalia. I hope you'll love this apple crisp as we love it.
How wonderful! I would LOVE to have this for breakfast. I'm a firm believer that Apple Crisp is not just a dessert.
The peanut butter in the crisp topping was a tasty surprise. I've never included it in my recipe and now I don't think I can ever leave it out.
I love apple crisp and make it quite often! So excited to try your healthy version! Will let you know how it came out 😉
I love apple crisp...it's such an easy treat to make when you're craving something a little sweet. Perfect year round and yours looks delish!
Yes for healthy desserts that can turn into a good breakfast! The topping is my favorite part! Crisps are my favorite desserts to make in the summer and fall, so easy!
As a gluten-free and low carb eater, I am always struggling with finding desserts that are enjoyable while hitting all the dietary restrictions. This totally gets there! Thanks for developing this.
Thank you, Ksenia. I am glad that you found this recipe.
