For the Crust:
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free old fashioned or quick oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup solid coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 8 tablespoons ice cold water
For the Crumble Topping:
  • 1/2 cup coconut or palm sugar
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free flour blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup solid coconut oil
For the Filling:
  • 5-7 apples, peeled, cored and cut into eighths
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup coconut or palm sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • A dash of nutmeg


  1. Start by making the crust. Put the oats in the food processor and grind into a flour. Add the gluten free flour blend, cornstarch, and salt, and pulse to combine. Add the coconut oil in 4 parts, pulsing after each addition. Add the vinegar. Add the water a tablespoon at a time, pulsing after each addition. Stop pulsing when you have a wad of dough. Take the dough out, wrap it in plastic, and set aside to rest. Don't put it in the fridge; you want it at room temperature.
  2. Make the topping next. Stir the sugar, gluten-free flour, and cinnamon together in a medium bowl. Add the coconut oil and use a pastry cutter or knives in a scissoring motion to cut it in. Stop when you have a bowl of crumbly chunks and set it aside.
  3. Heat the oven to 400°F. Have a 9-inch pie plate ready. Put some wax paper on your work surface, lightly sprinkle it with flour, and set your dough on it. Roll the dough out to cover the plate and carefully place it inside. Trim off excess and make repairs if needed.
  4. Arrange the apples inside. Sprinkle with raisins. Stir the cinnamon and dash of nutmeg into the 1/2 cup of sugar and sprinkle it over the apples and raisins.
  5. Sprinkle on the crumble topping. It will seem like a huge heap of topping, but don't worry, it shrinks in the oven. Get as much as you can on.
  6. Bake the pie for about 40 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
