The best Vegan Apple Crisp is easy to make using simple wholesome ingredients and just 1 bowl! Tender, caramelized apples under a crunchy sweet, oat-nut topping. It’s the perfect Fall dessert.




  • 4 medium/large Granny Smith apples (green)
  • 4 medium/large Honeycrisp apples
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch (for thickening)
  • 1/4 cup of water


  • 1 1/2 cup organic old-fashioned oats (not steel-cut or quick-cooking)
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, raw
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, raw
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F and begin preparing the filling.
  2. Peel and cut the apples into small cubes. Then, add to a large mixing and cover with the remaining filling ingredients. Toss and make sure everything is well combined and covered. Pour into a 9×13 nonstick baking dish or one lined with parchment paper.
  3. Rinse out your mixing bowl and add the topping ingredients. Stir everything together and use your hands, if necessary, to break apart any large chunks that stick together.
  4. Pour the topping over the filling and use your hands or a wooden spoon to evenly spread the mixture. 
  5. Bake uncovered for 50 minutes to 1 hour until the top is golden, the filling is bubbling, and the apples are tender.
  6. Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes before serving.
