Gluten-Free Fall Fruit Crisp


  • 3 apples, cored and diced
  • 2 pears, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated maple sugar
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 4-5 tbsp. cold pastured butter

Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly oil a 9×9 baking pan or casserole dish.  Spread fruit evenly in the pan and add apple juice. In a food processor, pulse 1/2 the oats until they are a flour-like consistency. Combine maple sugar, oats and oat flour, walnuts, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and sea salt.  Cut the butter into small pieces and work it into the oat flour mixture until it resembles medium-sized crumbs.  Lay the oat crumbs on top of fruit.  Cook, uncovered, 35-45 minutes or until mixture is bubbling and oat flour is browned.
