Skillet Apple Crisp (sugar-free)

February 25, 2019

This is one of my go-to desserts because I can throw it together easily in my cast iron skillet, or I can double the recipe and make it for a large crowd without any hassle. It is sugar-free and can also be made grain-free if you prefer. I have been making this recipe for years, and now it's time to put it into writing, so enjoy every bite of this!

RECIPE Skillet Apple Crisp (sugar-free)


5-6 small apples or 3-4 large apples sliced

1 TBSP cornstarch or arrowroot starch

1 TBSP pumpkin pie spice


1 c rolled oats

1 c almond flour

½ c whole wheat flour (optional)

1 stick cold butter (cubed)

2 TBSP Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup or other sticky sweetener

½ TBSP pumpkin pie spice

Pinch of Salt


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees

  2. In a bowl wash and slice all of your apples, you can peel them if you prefer but I like them with the skins on so I just sliced them as is.

  3. Add corn starch, pumpkin pie spice and your

  4. Mix to combine and set aside.

  5. Now make your crumble topping. Put oats, almond flour, whole wheat flour (if using) and Lakanto Golden Monk-Fruit Sweetener in a bowl and mix together.

  6. Add your pumpkin pie spice and pinch of salt.

  7. Add the cold cubed butter and with a pastry cutter or a fork break down the butter and oat mixture so that it looks like a crumble or is in a pea size mixture. Now add your Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup or other sticky sweetener, the sticky sweetener helps to hold it together better.

  8. With your hands crumble it together so that all the ingredients are incorporated and it looks like a crumble topping.

  9. Now add your apple mixture to your cast iron skillet. Make sure your skillet has been properly seasoned. Then add the crumble on top

  10. Put in the oven and let it cook for about 30-35 minutes. The top with brown a little bit but it should be good to go at the 30 minute mark.

  11. Add sugar-free whip cream as a topping or sugar-free ice-cream if you desire!


I like to use a combination of different apples for the best flavors. I used Granny Smith and Honeycrisp varieties.
