  • Cold water & pinch salt
  • 3 medium sized dessert apples
  • 2 large pears
  • 40 grams dried cranberries 1/3 cup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Crisp topping

  • 95 grams gluten free oats 1 cup
  • 35 grams coconut flour 1/3 cup
  • 35 grams coconut sugar 1/4 cup
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 45 grams coconut oil - melted 1/4 cup


  • Preheat your oven to 190C / 375F / Gas mark 5 and lightly grease a 20cm / 8-inch pie dish.
  • Get a medium sized bowl and half fill it with cold water and stir in a pinch of salt.
  • Peel, core and slice up your apples and pears. Pop the slices in your cold lightly salted water to help keep them white.
  • Once all of your fruit is ready drain the water out of the bowl and add in the cranberries.
  • Sprinkle over the coconut sugar, cornflour (cornstarch) and cinnamon and toss the fruit until it all has a light covering of sugar, cornflour and spice. Pour the coated fruit into your pie dish.
  • To save on dishes wipe the bowl the fruit was in with a kitchen paper towel to dry it up and clean it a little. There is no need for it to be spotless.
  • Throw your oats, coconut flour and sugar, cinnamon and allspice in to the bowl and lightly toss it all together.
  • Pour in your melted coconut oil and stir so all of the oats have a light covering.
  • Sprinkle the oaty topping all over the top of the fruit and pop the crisp into your hot oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until the topping is a light golden colour and the fruit is lightly bubbling and piping hot.
  • This can be served alone or with a little vegan ice cream.
  • Any leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, when reheating make sure all food is piping hot. This dish can be enjoyed hot or cold.
