For the Filling:

  • 6 medium apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

For the Topping:

  • 4 strips bacon
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats (certified gluten free if needed)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil (or another neutral oil, like canola oil)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare the filling by combining the apples, brown sugar, almond flour, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Set aside for now.
  3. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until lightly crisp. Remove the skillet from heat, then remove the bacon from the skillet and set aside on a paper towel. When cool, chop or crumble.
  4. Prepare the topping by combining the chopped bacon, oats, almond flour, brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, salt, and avocado oil in a large bowl.
  5. Look at the skillet you used to cook the bacon – you want to keep a thin layer of bacon grease in there, but if there’s a lot in the pan, drain off some of the excess. Then, pour the filling into the skillet, and add the topping over it.

  6. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until the filling is soft and bubbly and the topping is golden brown and crisp. Let cool slightly, then enjoy!
