"Almond and coconut flavors complement the apples beautifully! Granny Smith apples work best, but any will do. Serve with warm custard for a simple yet delicious Autumn dessert."

Felt like there was something missing in the crumble so I added 1/4 cup of rolled oats and instead of rice flour, used all purpose flour. Turned out wonderful!

OK, not a great crust. :(

I felt this was a really good start, but I had to adjust quite a few things. I had to use quite a bit more sugar and cinnamon for the apples than it called for, then I had to more than double the topping. I also used a gluten free flour blend (brown rice flour, tapioca flour, and potato starch) instead of straight rice flour. The results were fantastic, and because I am gluten intolerant, I plan to use this topping recipe for all my crisps. Very good, thanks for sharing!

I found this recipe, when searching for wheat-free recipes... and was SO pleased with it's results. However, due to taste preferences & availability, I did make a few changes. Here is what I did...I used brown sugar instead of white... increased the sugar & cinnamon amounts, to better coat the apples... substituted oat flour (rolled oats in the coffee grinder - about 1/8 cup whole oats = about 1/4 cup flour) for the rice.... and I omitted the coconut! It turned out SO amazingly delicious!!! (and the family devoured it!) I will definitely make this one again!!

Simple, yet delicious restaurant quality crumble! I strongly recommend this, my little sister loves it, along with my father. Definitey a healthy dessert for all ages, but not short of taste.

What a wonderful dessert. Served this with a small dollop of whipped cream. The coconut was divine in the crumble topping. Will definitely show this recipe off.

YUM! I love it when I find a healthy, gluten free recipe that tastes YUMMY too! I played with it a bit and used a bit more. I used a little organic sugar, but I used mostly agave nectar for sweetener. Also, I used coconut flour instead of coconut and I ground some flax seed instead of almond meal. I also added a few oats to round it out! WOW! It's fun to play around and find such wonderful fun flavors and textures!
