  • Preheat oven at 350-degree Fahrenheit and grease a 9-inch rectangular or 8-inch square baking dish with a cooking spray. Keep it aside.


  • Chop apples along with its skin and place them in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add cornstarch, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and ginger to it. Give it a nice toss.
  • Pour in maple syrup and lemon juice into it and mix it very well.
  • Spoon it out on the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly. Keep it aside.


  • In another bowl combine oat flour and salt and toss it well.
  • Add maple syrup and dairy free milk to it and whip it with a spoon.
  • Fold in rolled oats and mix well. It will be dough like consistency.
  • Then, spread it on the apple filling with your hands evenly covering the dish properly.


  • Place the baking dish in the middle rack of the oven and bake it for 40 minutes.
  • Turn it off and take it out. Let it settle for few minutes and enjoy it warm with large scoop of vanilla ice cream.


  • I baked this with apple skin and it tasted better for us. I tried it without skin too and it works fine also so you may peel the skin if desired. However, this tastes best with its skin.
  • Make sure to use Honeycrisp apples for this recipe.
  • The leftovers can be refrigerated in the same dish covered with aluminum foil or cling wrapper for about 10 days. Re-bake in the oven at 350-degree Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes to serve.
  • I tried baking this recipe without greasing the baking dish and maple syrup sticks to the pan too much and parchment paper dries up the sauce a bit more than required. Therefore, it is important to grease your baking dish lightly so that you can scoop this dessert easily and cleaning of the dish also becomes easy. 
  • Instant pot option: Prepare the filling and the topping as mentioned in the above instructions. Then grease the inner pot of the instant pot and spread the filling first. Then, add 1/4 cup water to it and spread the topping on it evenly. Close the lid and seal the valve. Turn it on at high for 4 minutes. When done, turn it off and release the pressure. Do not open the lid and let it rest for 2 minutes ( this helps in thickening the sauce). Open the lid and enjoy. 
  • This recipe comes out crispier in oven and a bit softer in instant pot.
