Units Scale

Crisp Topping:

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup hazelnut flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup gluten-free oats
  • 5 tablespoons salted butter, cold and cubed

Apple Filling:

  • 4 apples (roughly peeled and cubed, preferably tart like Granny Smith)
  • 2 pears (peeled and sliced)
  • 1/2 cup raw cranberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans (or chopped walnuts)
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger


  • Preheat your oven to 395°F (200°C).
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin seeds, hazelnut flour, brown sugar, and oats. Stir to thoroughly mix the ingredients. Add the cold, cubed salted butter, and blend until all ingredients are evenly coated.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the crumble topping mixture, flattening it evenly.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the topping turns a light golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • While the topping bakes, prepare the fruit. Roughly peel, core, and slice your apples and pears. Note: I like to leave some of the peel on my apples as I find it adds a bit of extra texture, flavor, and fiber to the crumble.
  • Butter a glass baking dish, preferably 9×13 inches. Arrange the sliced apples and pears evenly in the dish. Top with cranberries, nuts, and sprinkle with cinnamon and ginger.
  • Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the baking dish from the oven and gently distribute the pre-baked topping evenly over the fruit.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (175°C) and return the baking dish to the oven.
  • Bake for an additional 25 minutes or until the fruit becomes tender.


I love to eat this apple crisp while it’s warm and as it is! But, don’t hesitate to pair it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of plain yogurt.
