Today we are making a vegan apple crisp – one of my favourite desserts. This is perfect to make for holiday dinners, or if you recently went apple picking and have a bunch left over. I love apple crisp in the fall – it reminds me of holiday dinners and family gatherings and is so warming and comforting.

Vegan Apple Crisp

This is a super simple & easy recipe for vegan apple crisp that is perfect for using up those apples in your fridge drawers! I love how quick this is to whip up on a cool fall afternoon.

  • Author: Liv B
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 5 cortland apples, peeled
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 11/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
2. Chop apples into bite-size pieces. Add to a mixing bowl with 1 tbsp brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Set aside.
3. In a separate bowl, combine oats, 1/3 cup brown sugar and vegan butter and use a form to cut in the butter so it makes a crumbly texture (see video for reference).
4. Add apples to an oven-safe casserole dish, then top with oat topping. Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes until top is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with a scoop of vegan vanilla ice-cream.

    Just made it today, albeit using different apples than the one in the recipe, it tasted amazing. So easy to make, and doesn’t require a ton of ingredients I didn’t already have. Will definitely make this again in the future!
