Makes 6 cobblers



  • 1 cup gluten-free oats, ground (try a coffee grinder)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, ground (try a coffee grinder)
  • 1 Tbs. sunflower seed butter (Link to recipe above)
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbs. coconut nectar
  • 1/2 cup green tea or water


  • 6 medium sweet apples, cored, peeled, and chopped into 1/4-inch pieces (Pink Lady, Gravenstein, and Braeburn are good choices)
  • 3 Tbs. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 Tbs. tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon


  • 11/4 cups gluten-free oats, ground (try a coffee grinder)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350°F. Place six 6-oz. ramekins on 15x10-inch baking sheet.

To Make Crust: Add ground oats and pumpkin seeds to medium bowl. Add sunflower seed butter, cinnamon, coconut nectar, and green tea, and stir until combined. Spoon about 1/4 cup of crust mixture into each ramekin, dividing evenly. Press mixture firmly
into the bottom of each ramekin, and slightly up the sides. Bake until light golden brown, about 9 minutes. Remove from oven.

To Make Filling: Add apples and lemon juice to medium bowl, and stir to coat. Add coconut sugar, tapioca flour, and cinnamon, and stir until thoroughly combined. Spoon filling mixture into crusts, dividing evenly.

To Make Topping: Add oats, coconut sugar, shredded coconut, coconut milk, and cinnamon to small bowl, and stir to combine. Cover each cobbler completely with topping, dividing evenly.

Return ramekins to oven, and bake cobblers until topping turns a toasty golden brown, about 25 minutes. Transfer baking sheet to wire rack, and allow to cool 10 minutes before serving. Top with vegan, soy-free ice cream or coconut cream, if desired.

Sunflower Seed Butter recipe.

Sunflower Seed Butter

The heat from the food processor brings out the natural oils from the sunflower seeds, so there’s no need to add any oil. Blending the seeds into a paste can take a while, so I suggest giving your food processor a break about halfway through so it doesn’t burn out.
