I don’t really know if this is a cobbler, but I didn’t know what else to call it.

I went through many name ideas for this recipe because what does one call diced caramel covered apples covered in a gooey cinnamon cookie layer? It’s not a crumble, it’s not a crisp, and it isn’t a traditional cobbler.

Cinnamon-Cookie-Caramel-Apple-Cobbler-perchancetocook-1-6After some research, I found that cobblers can be made, not only with a biscuit topping, but also with a cookie topping, so this had to be it!

Cinnamon-Cookie-Caramel-Apple-Cobbler-perchancetocook-1-2Cinnamon-Cookie-Caramel-Apple-Cobbler-perchancetocook-1-3I had been meaning to make a caramel apple crumble, but I didn’t know how to make it differently than my previous attempts. I LOVE my Apple Pear Crumble recipe, but I like the challenge of creating more gluten-free, paleo, non-processed dessert options.

Cinnamon-Cookie-Caramel-Apple-Cobbler-perchancetocook-1-4So I tested out an idea to have a cinnamon cookie crust on top of the apples and the result is this Cinnamon Cookie Caramel Apple Cobbler.

And to be honest, the title says it all. A warm soft, gooey cinnamon cookie tops baked caramel covered apples.

Better than heaven in a bowl, if you add some Coconut Bliss Vanilla ice-cream.

This cobbler can be made in many ways, to fit your taste or time constraints.

I know it can be an added step to make paleo caramel and if you just want to eat this cobbler NOW, then make it without! It’s just as good.Cinnamon-Cookie-Caramel-Apple-Cobbler-11

I have made so many versions of this cobbler…with only maple syrup on the apples, only cinnamon on the apples, and with Paleo caramel sauce on them. I truly loved them all.

It just depends on what you want or your mood, and my mood lately has been caramel. It also helps that I have a bunch of Paleo Caramel Sauce lying around. 🙂

Cinnamon Cookie Caramel Apple Cobbler (paleo, GF)

Servings: 4 -6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put the diced apples into an 8X8 glass pan. Pour 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 2 Tbs caramel sauce OR maple OR honey on top of the diced apples and mix with a spoon. Note: this also tastes great without putting anything except for cinnamon on top of the apples.
  • Put the pan of diced apples into the oven while you prepare the next part of the recipe (about 8-10 minutes).
  • In bowl 1, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking soda, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and nutmeg with a fork until well mixed.
  • In bowl 2, whisk the egg, maple syrup, and olive oil together until well blended and the mixture thickens.
  • Pour bowl 2 into bowl 1 and whisk until everything is blended.
  • Then remove the diced apples from the oven.
  • Pour the batter on top of the apples by slowly pouring half of the batter on one side of the pan and the other half on the other side of the pan. Then slowly even out the batter with a spatula until all of the batter connects and covers the apples.
  • Put the pan back into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. The cookie topping should rise and turn golden brown. I like keeping it in for only 25 minutes, so the cookie topping is softer.
