Finding a healthy gluten free dessert recipe that the kids really like can be a challenge. While we don’t have dessert every night, I like to have it at least a few times a week. Sometimes it’s a baked dessert and sometimes it’s a fruit dessert. What I decide to make really depends on what’s growing in the garden or what’s on sale at the grocery store. We tend to use a lot of apples because they are grown in our area and they are relatively inexpensive. When I found this Baked Cozy Apples recipe in the Allergy-Friendly Food for Families: 120 Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Egg-Free, and Soy-Free Recipes Everyone Will Enjoy cookbook, I decided to give it a try.
Gluten free dessert recipe: Baked Cozy Apples
Canola oil for coating the baking dish
1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup sorghum flour
2 tablespoons potato starch
2 tablespoons tapioca starch
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup soy free, nonhydrogenated margarine, cut into small pieces
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
2 tablespoons raw cane sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
juice of 1/2 small leon
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly coat an 8 inch square baking dish with canola oil.
- In a medium bowl, add the oats, sorghum flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and mix well with a fork. Add the margarine and use your fingers or a fork. Add the margarine and use your fingers or a fork to combine it with the flour mixture, forming coarse crumbs. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, add the apple slices, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, the lemon juice, and raisins, if using. Toss well to combine.,
- Pour the apple mixture into the baking pan in an even layer. Top evenly with the oat mixture.
- Bake for 40 minutes or until the apples have softened and the oat mixture is lightly browned. Serve hot, cold, or at room temperature.
I love this recipe. It’s a great way to use up fruit that is a bit past its prime and it tastes just as good hot out of the oven as it does cold the next day. If you need a gluten free dessert recipe, I recommend you try Baked cozy Apples.
