A healthy apple cobbler recipe that is easy to make from scratch and will be the perfect fall dessert for holiday baking! Made gluten-free, with no refined sugar, and fresh juicy apples, just add some creamy vanilla ice cream on top and you’re set!



Apple filling

  • 6 apples of choice (I used Honeycrisp)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Cobbler topping:


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and grease a baking dish. I used an 11×8 pan.
  2. Peel, core, and slice your apples about 1/8 inch thick.
  3. Toss slices in mixing bowl with lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla, and spices. Set aside while preparing crumble.
  4. In a food processor, pulse all crumble ingredients until blended but still small chunks.
  5. Pour apples into greased baking dish, including the liquid in the bottom of the bowl.
  6. Add dollops of cobbler mixture onto apples, evenly dispersing and covering as much of the top as possible.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes, covering top halfway through with aluminum foil if starting to brown.
  8. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
