A classic dessert gets a makeover with this vegan bourbon apple crisp recipe. Coconut oil is the secret to the vegan crumb topping!


For the Apple Layer:

  • 6 apples (I used a variety), thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Dash of salt

For the Crumb Topping:

  • 1 cup oats (not quick cooking)
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • Dash of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the apple layer ingredients and toss to coat. Transfer to an 8″x8″ baking dish. Shake pan to spread apples into an even layer.
  3. In a bowl, combine all of the crumb topping ingredients. Use your fingers to break up the coconut oil and spread through mixture until crumbly. Evenly pour topping over the top of the apples.
  4. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until topping is browned and thick sauce has formed in bottom of dish. Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving.
