Healthy Apple Cobbler (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Healthy Apple Cobbler that is vegan AND gluten free.  I just love fruity desserts!  So I made you a healthy vegan apple cobbler.

I think apple cobbler is my favorite and apple pie might be a close second. I have already created a Healthy Apple Pie. So, naturally, I had to create a healthy apple cobbler too.  I hope you enjoy it this apple cobbler much as we did!

I had to stop my husband from eating it all before I had the chance to photograph it. This apple cobbler recipe is so good that you and your friends would never know it was healthy, dairy free, and vegan.

The secret is slow cooking the apple filling in the crock pot, the natural sugars in the apple will come out more.  Another secret: adding a lot of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg will give a dish a sense of being sweeter than it is.

    For the filling

    For the topping


      For the filling

      1. Place everything in the crock pot and turn on high for the first hour and then turn to low for an additional 3 hours. Your house will smell amazing in the process!
      2. When the apples are done cooking, place them in a glass baking dish and preheat your oven to 350. I used an 8X8 dish.
      3. There will be some extra liquid left, so remove the apple mixture with a slotted spoon .

      For the topping

      1. Place everything in the food processor and mix until the oats start to stick together.
      2. Sprinkle oat mixture over the top of the apples and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes.


      Recipe Notes

      I saved the leftover liquid from the filling and used it as a topping for pancakes. I actually did the apples the night before and put them in the fridge over night.

        1. You can probably slow cook it on the stove. Just bring it to a boil and then turn down, cover and simmer. Should work. :)
      1. The recipes that you post, are they high in calories and or fat??..I am trying very hard to lose weight and was wondering the calories in some of your recipes....
        1. This particular recipe is not high in fat at all. I would imagine the calories would not be too high. You can omit the maple syrup for stevia and that will cut the calories down.
      2. made this last night and it was DEEEEEEELICIOUS!! next time I will add a bit more of the spices and make a bit more of the topping (i LOVED the slightly crunchy texture of the topping!) I am definately planning to make pancakes very soon to pour the leftover apple "syrup" on! thanks so much for the recipe!
          1. Did you try the peaches? This is exactly what I am looking for for thanksgiving! I usually use flours such as oat, coconut or spelt. Would any of these work?
      3. This looks so delicious!! It's so simple and easy too, which I'm a huge fan of. I'm so glad I discovered your blog, I love a lot of your recipes and approach to food! Excited to see many more :)
      4. I used this recipe over the weekend and it was very good. My family has been making the big push to get off processed sugars and artificial sweetners. I will admit it has been hard for my kids! This gave them a treat without all of the junk. Thanks for sharing (:
      5. What kind of apples do you recommend using? We eat them raw all the time but I'm new to baking with them in things like cobblers or pies (or even your bread). I've heard the apples used can make a big difference so any insight/suggestions would be appreciated.
      6. It says to put them in the oven at 350. Is this to keep them warm or to continure baking them? And if so, then how long in the oven? Thanks ! looks delicious!
        1. Just about 20 minutes so the crumble topping can cook a little. The apples shouldn't dry out, since some of the liquid is retained. I hope that makes sense?
      7. Hi! You mentioned in an earlier post that stevia could be used instead of the maple syrup. Would it be the same measurements using the stevia granules? Also could you do that with both the filling AND the topping? Thanks!!!
      8. I just wanted to say I love your recipes. I made a variation of this today using feijoas and apples. My family loved it. I saved the left over liquid and have used it as my liquid in my overnight oats. Which are also so yummy and easy for a busy mum. 60 seconds heat n eat in the morning. Thank you.
      9. This may be a silly question since the ingredients don't say "melted" coconut oil, but should the coconut oil for the topping be softened or melted? Thank you!
