My Dad and Husband both love this apple crumble, warm from the oven, with a bit of ice cream (dairy free for my hubby). Sometimes I add chopped pecans and/or craisins into the crumble. It adds a bit of crunch and nice flavour. My mom made apple or berry crumbles when I was a kid on a regular basis, so this tastes like home.

Some celiacs can not tolerate any oats … if that is you … then just use rice flour instead of oat flour and quinoa flakes instead of oats.
If you are a celiac, oats are contaminated with gluten.  Therefore you need to ensure to have certified gluten free oats.  You can find them in your local grocery store or health food store.  If you have trouble finding, you can also order online
