Tasty Thursday: Gluten-Free Apple Bites

So this is part of the rest of that bag of pre-chopped apples I had and I needed to have a quick gluten-free dessert to bring with us to Thanksgiving (which we didn’t end up going to…so I ate them all myself…) and BAM GF Apple bites (or little mini apple pies).

Gluten-Free Apple Bites | Becoming Mrs. Strong


  • 1 C Gluten-Free Flour
  • 6 tbsp butter, cold and cubed
  • 2 tbsp ice water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2-3 large apples, cubed/diced
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Making the dough: In a large bowl mix butter and flour. Then add salt and sugar. Add the ice water and mix until a dough starts forming. Wrap dough in saran wrap and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes (if using gluten-free all purpose flour, I’d suggest maybe an hour)
  2. Cut up the apples into small bite size pieces that will fit in a muffin tin. In a medium bowl mix sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour and vanilla extract. Then add in the apples and mix.
  3. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out the dough. Find a bowl or something that is slightly larger than your muffin tins and start cutting out the circles from the dough. Squish them into an un-greased muffin tin and remove any extra from the top. Poke a couple holes in the bottom using a fork and fill with your apple mixture.
  4. From here you can make lattice with the extra dough, do a crumb topping or just leave it as is. I did a crumb topping which was just some flour, oats, brown sugar and a splash of vanilla to hold it together sort of.
  5. Place the muffin tin in the oven at 375 degrees and bake 30-35 minutes or 35-40 minutes if using regular flour.
