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

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)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly coat an 8 inch square baking dish with canola oil.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.,
  4. Pour the apple mixture into the baking pan in an even layer. Top evenly with the oat mixture.
  5. 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.
