Gluten Free Apple Crumble Pie

This Gluten Free Apple Crumble Pie is a delicious and healthier take on the classic apple pie. It is made from minimal natural ingredients, two different types of apples, and is very simple to make.

Prep: 45Cook: 35Total: 1 hour 20 minutes
Yield 1 pie 1x



  • 2 cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar (I used coconut sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chilled butter, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2– – 3/4 cup water (add in by one tablespoon at a time, you want it moist and able to form a ball easily)


  • 6 medium sized apples, peeled, cored and sliced thin (3 sweet apples and 3 tart apples, I used Honeycrisp and Granny Smith)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 3/4 cup Gluten Free flour
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup chilled and cubed butter



  1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt.
  2. Using a pastry cutter or fork, blend butter into flour mixture until small crumbs are formed and it is well incorporated.
  3. Add in one egg, mixture will still be fairly dry.
  4. Slowly add in water until ball starts to form and crust resembles dough.
  5. Place in fridge for 30 minutes.

All together

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a pie dish.
  2. Take your dough out of the fridge and place between two sheets of parchment paper.
  3. Using a rolling pin, roll out to the size of your pie pan.
  4. Peel off once side of parchment paper and place greased pie dish upside down on crust.
  5. Flip it over and press down into dish, ensuring the crust is flat on the dish. If you want to pinch the edges of your crust for a design, now is the time to do so. You may have leftover crust (I did!).
  6. Place apples into pie crust and stack them up high, they will shrink down during cooking.
  7. Using your hands, press the crumble into the top of the apple mixture. You don’t want to be able to see the apples.
  8. Place pie dish on baking sheet in case of spillage.
  9. Bake in a 400F oven for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
  10. Let cool completely before serving.
  11. Store at room temperature for 3-4 days.
