Gluten Free Apple Crisp

I love anything apple, and baked apples are the my favorite in the fall. Apples in the fall are at their best, so why not use them as much as possible? Full disclosure: I love this dish for breakfast with a frothy cappuccino. It’s simply YUMMY! Or serve it as an easy, quick, and great last minute dessert with vanilla ice cream or whipping cream. Here’s my gluten free apple crisp recipe. Enjoy fall and enjoy the harvest!

– 8 organic apples, cut into 2 “cubes
– 1 tablespoon gluten free flour like Cup 4 Cup
– 1 cup gluten free oatmeal
