This healthy paleo apple crisp has a juicy apple filling that's topped with a nut free crumble topping.  Simple, delicious and perfect for an easy apple dessert!



Apple Filling

Crumble Topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a small baking dish, either 11" x 7" or 8" x 8", with non-hydrogenated shortening (or butter). If you only have a large baking dish, then double this recipe.

Apple Filling

  1. Wash the apples, cut them in half, remove the core, then thinly slice the apples top to bottom. Cut the apple slices in thirds*
  2. Place the apple pieces in a medium-sized mixing bowl.  Combine with the remaining filling ingredients.  Mix the filling with a spatula until all of the apple pieces are well coated.
  3. Place the apple filling in the greased baking dish.

Crumble Topping

  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the tigernut flour, shredded coconut, tapioca flour, apple pie spice and salt.  Mix in the shortening and honey with a fork or spatula until the topping is just combined.
  2. Crumble the topping over the apple filling.

Bake the Crisp

  1. Place the crisp in the preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes.
  2. Remove from oven and cool in baking dish.


*See process photos for more on how to cut the apples.  I did not remove the skin, but you may peel the apples if you wish.
