Apple Raisin Cobbler | Cooked

LoadingFavoriteAdd to favorites

Indulge in warm apples spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. The great thing about this easy apple cobbler is you don’t have to wait for it to cool before serving it. Top the warm cobbler with a dollop of my raw vegan Creamy Vanilla Bean Frozen Custard ,or if you are in a hurry, make  Banana Ice Cream with just ONE ingredient, and you will have absolute perfection!

This recipe entered our life while Bob was doing the AIP diet (autoimmune protocol), minus the chia seeds and nutmeg. Thankfully, he had to do it for only six months, but trust me, it was a long six months. With all the food restrictions, I knew I had to find a dessert (treat) to cheer him up. He is always such a good sport about things, but it was hard to see him making so many food sacrifices.

Once I made this for him, it became a staple in our house. I always had some in the fridge for those unplanned snack attacks–with a backup in the freezer. That’s one of the beauties of this dessert; it freezes perfectly. After pulling all the ingredients together, place them in a freezer/oven-safe dish, and slip into the freezer, where it can sit for up to three months. Once you are ready to bake it, let it thaw in the fridge, then bake as instructed below.  I love to make food beautiful whenever I serve it to Bob, so I added one of my antique apple blossoms, which I like to keep in the freezer for moments like this.

The ingredients are pretty straightforward but for some of you, arrowroot might be a new idea. It is a tropical tuber native to Indonesia, similar to yam, cassava, sweet potato, and taro.  It is usually processed into a powder, also called arrowroot flour. The powder is extracted from the plant’s rhizome, an underground stem with multiple roots that store its starch and energy.

There are no tricks or hidden techniques to this recipe. It’s straightforward, easy, and in the end, you enjoy it bite after bite. Please leave a comment below and be blessed, amie sue





  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the coconut flour, arrowroot, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Make sure all the flavors get well mixed.
  3. Using a pastry cutter, cut in the cold coconut oil, till you have pea-sized lumps.
    • If you don’t own a pastry cutter, you can use your hands.
  4. Sprinkle in the cold water. You want the crumble to stay chunky.
  5. In a large bowl, toss together the apples, raisins, coconut oil, dried coconut, chia seeds, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
    • If following the AIP protocol, omit the chia seeds and nutmeg.
  6. Spread the mixture into a 9″x13″ pan, spread the apple mixture evenly in the pan.
    • Like me, you can bake it in several different vessels…whatever meets your needs!
  7. Cover the with crumble topping.
  8. Bake for 40 minutes, until lightly brown on top.
  9. Store leftovers in the fridge for 5-7 days or freeze them in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

    In the filling ingredients, you say to use raisins. When it comes to preparing the mixture you state cranberries and not raisins. I’m sure its a typo or you could use cranberries or raisin or even currents if a person wanted to. I just wanted to bring it to your attention.

      Thank you Dakotta for bringing that to my attention. I will adjust it. But ultimately, you could use any of which you listed out. blessings, amie sue

  2. Was this after some reintroductions? As I understand it, the strictest level of AIP wouldn’t allow nutmeg or chia seeds. You shouldn’t have any form of nuts/seeds or any nut/seed spices.

      Good day… you are so correct! I meant to make a note to omit the nutmeg and chia seeds if AIP. I used to make it without those 2 ingredients for my husband when following the AIP diet. After he was removed from that way of eating, I made may different renditions of the recipe. Thank you for pointing that out so I can adjust how it reads. blessings, amie sue

    Hi Amie Sue,
    Does the crumble really call for 1 1/2 cups coconut oil? Any suggestions for making it,if not oil free at least much less so or something else?
