Vegan Apple Crisp (double crust)

Sharing is caring!

This vegan apple crisp has a double crust, full of flavor, and is absolutely delicious.

Vegan Apple Crisp

This awesome vegan double crust apple crisp is tasty! It's no surprise around here that I love my crusts and bread.

So, naturally, the original apple crisp has never had enough crisp topping, in my humble opinion.

This is the best vegan apple crisp.

Having a bunch of apples and a little topping just isn't going to cut it for me.

So, instead, I made mine with a crust on the top and bottom. And it is TASTY!

I want to point out that this crust is softer than a typical crispy apple crisp.

You could bake it longer if you wanted to and get that crispy topping.

 But I like it just as it is.

I love my apple crisp served warm with a dollop or two of my favorite vegan vanilla ice cream.

But I have been known to sneak bites of this apple crisp, not warm, not with ice cream, just shoveling it into my mouth when no one is looking.

Vegan Apple Crisp Recipe Q&A

What's the best type of apple to use?

Granny smith apples are most typically used in apple desserts; they are firmer tart apples.

 I often like to use a mix of sweet apples and tart apples.

I've used a sweeter apple like honey crisp and gala apples mixed with the granny smith.

Do I need to peel the apples?

You don't technically have to, but I would. The apple peel has a different texture than the apple and can throw off the texture.

You can use a potato peeler or peel the skin carefully with a knife.

What's the best way to cut apples for apple pie?

You can cut the apples into thin slices or cubes. 

Or use an apple/peeler/corer machine, which makes your apples into thin strips.

The most important part about the apple filling is that the apples are uniform in size.

If they aren't, they won't cook evenly, and you will have a partially cooked, partially crunchy apple crisp, and no one wants that.

Can you make this a gluten-free apple crisp?

Yes, use all-purpose gluten-free flour in a 1:1 ratio.

Can I use coconut oil instead of vegan butter?

For the best results, I prefer vegan butter, but you can use coconut oil if you prefer; I would make sure that it doesn't have a coconut flavor.

What types of oats work best in apple crisp?

I use rolled old-fashioned oats; they are heartier than quick oats. 

If you're in a pinch, you can use quick oats.

Can I make this dessert ahead of time?

You can make this up a day ahead of time. You can reheat the whole thing or serve it at room temperature.

Can I use another fruit filling instead of apples?

I've only ever used apples, but I imagine it would work well with any other fruit. 

The bottom might get a bit soggy, but I think it would still be delicious.

I want to share a message that has been spreading all over the internet that concerns the times we are living in. Whether you believe in God or not, this is a must read message!

We can see throughout time how we have been slowly conditioned to come to this point where we are on the verge of a cashless society. Would it surprise you to know that the Bible foretold of this event? Don't believe me? This may be the most imporant message you will read in these times...please do not ignore this!

This messsage reveals what the Mark of the Beast is, and the meaning behind counting a number people have been pondering for centuries, 666. This message also shares why Barack Obama will be the Antichrist. This is truly a message from God!

In the Revelation of Jesus Christ given to the apostle John, we read:

"He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

Referring to the last generation, this could only be speaking of a cashless money society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Why? Revelation 13:17 tells us that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast in our right-hand or forehead. We could still buy or sell among one another without receiving the mark if physical money was still currency. It logically deduces itself to this reason.

These verses could not be referring to something spiritual because the word references two different physical locations (our right-hand or forehead) stating the mark will be on one "OR" the other. It once again logically deduces itself to this reason.

Here is where it really starts to come together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning the RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this microchip in the late 1960's.

"Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about a one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the "mark" spoken about in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for "mark" is "charagma," which means a "scratch or etching." It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is "chi xi stigma," with the last part, "stigma," also meaning "to stick or prick." Carl believes this refers to a hypodermic needle (see photo).

Mr. Sanders asked a Boston Medical Center doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor responded that if the microchip broke inside a human body, the lithium would cause a severe and painful wound filled with pus. This is what the book of Revelation says:

"And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image" (Revelation 16:2).


What I first want to mention, before I share what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me concerning the number of the beast, is that God confirms in threes. We can see this throughout scripture:

"For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one" (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

"and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

"...Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!" (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

There are many more examples, but I thought I would just share three of them to make the point.

Examining Revelation 13:16,17,18, the first group of three I would like to point out is that the mark of the beast is described in three separate verses, 16, 17 and 18.

The next three I see is in verse 16, "He causes all..." is followed by three contrasting categories of people,

1 - "both small and great, 2 - rich and poor, 3 - free and slave...".

Then unto verse 17, it opens with, "and that no one may buy or sell except one who has...", followed by three explanations of what one must have to buy or sell,

1 - "...the mark 2 - or the name of the beast, 3 - or the number of his name".

Now unto verse 18, we read "Let him who has understanding calculate...", which is followed by,

1 - "the number of the beast, 2 - for it is the number of a man: 3 - His number is 666".

The last three I see is the number "6" being used three times in a row. The reason I'm making this point about God confirming in three is because it is the key to unlocking how to calculate the number 666.

Throughout the centuries there have been people trying to calculate numbers based on titles and names that come up to the number 666 to identify one person, the Antichrist; but from Revelation 13:18, I do not see where God is telling us to count up to 666, but rather to count the number of the beast. This number is identified as 666. So the verse is telling us to count the number 666.

What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes is key to unlocking the number 666. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally by using the rule of three based off the number.

We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start.

We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60 because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666.

The only logical option is 6+6+6=18.

What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18 (there a total of 18 verses in Revelation Chapter 13), being the third verse out of the three verses that describe the mark of the beast in Revelation 13:16,17,18. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3x6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a "+" symbol in between 666 are:

66+6=72 and 6+66=72.

Add both 72's together and you get 144.

Why the number 144 is worth our attention is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

"Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads..." (Revelation 14:1).

Now if you add up all three numbers from counting 666 by moving the "+" symbol around, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is compelling about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was originally written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply the same formula that was used to count 666, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits.

Now if you take:




you get 24+96+96=216.

Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666.

Remember that this was the same exact formula we used to count the number 666 that ultimately brought forth the number 888.

Here is a quick recap to demonstrate how this formula confirms itself as being the true way to count 666:

1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72 > 6+66=72 > 18+72+72=162

2: 144,000 divided by 162=888

3: 8+8+8=24 > 88+8=96 > 8+88=96 > 24+96+96=216

4: 144,000 divided by 216=666

1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72...

As you can see, it is perpetual. And remember that we consistently used a formula that worked in threes being the number that God uses for confirmation.

So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license; being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters (6+6+6).

"here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for "of human" it is, and the number of it 666" (Revelation 13:1, Greek Translation).

The Greek word "anthrōpos" being used in verse 18 where it says "of human" is the Greek strongs concordance G444. The first two definitions of the word are "a human being, whether male or female", and, "generically, to include all human individuals". Could the number of the beast apply to all mankind?

In the Greek (the New Testament was originally written in the Greek language), and other translations, you will notice the beast is described as an "it", instead of "him". The reason I'm making this point is because when a translation says "His number is 666", this would imply a singular person, the Antichrist. But by saying "the number of it 666", implies that it is of the beast system as a whole.

We can know the number of the beast cannot be to identify products (like a new barcode) to buy or sell because scripture says we cannot buy or sell without the number of the beast. What am I getting at? There will be instances where you could buy something someone made themselves and it wouldn't have a store branded identification on it. But for this number to be in our chips, that is where it must be to conclude ultimately that we cannot buy or sell without having the number of the beast. As previously mentioned in Revelation 13:18, the number of the beast (6+6+6=18) is a "human number", definition "generically, to include all human individuals".

"Why did the Biden campaign choose 30330? 2020 divided by 666 = 3.0330 Who believes this to be a coincidence? October 2020 Isaiah 53:6 Someone said we are being whipsawed in 2020. Truly a great division is taking place between good and evil—both symbolically and literally (riots, unrest, politics). If you take the current year 2020 and divide it by the number 666 (known for its satanic implications) you will get the number 30330 (repeated). This number 30330 happens to be the number used to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Freaky? Supernatural? Odd for sure. Whatever this means, it doesn’t seem good to me. First, why would anyone knowingly choose those particular numbers for their campaign? If they weren’t knowingly chosen, then it appears to be a supernatural act by the evil one himself and I would want to change those numbers ASAP. And if the numbers were chosen knowing their significance, are you satanic? Is this campaign satanic? Either way I do not believe this is a coincidence. And one thing is certain, 2020 is truly being divided by Satan. He is the master deceiver and spreader of chaos. Jesus calls him the father of lies."

So I looked up this number 30330 concerning Joe Biden, and I found this information:

If you send a text to that number (at that time), you would get a response asking to support Joe's campaign to take down Donald Trump, with one part in caps saying "CHIP IN >>" pointing to a link to go and donate.

"CHIP IN"? Obama has used this phrase in the past on his twitter and people believe it is a subliminal message to receive the mark of the beast, that is to say the implantable RFID microCHIP that will go IN our body.

Go to: to see all the proof!

Is your name written in the Lamb's book of life? Jesus says that we must be born again to enter the kingdom of God in the Gospel of John chapter 3.

"Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name" (Revelation 14:9-11).


In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith...

"In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned -- by people who don't know me -- or they've said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,'' - Barack Obama

...but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

So what's in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface...

"And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), 'I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'" (Luke 10:18).

In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

baraq - Biblical definition:

From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: - bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk')

Barak 'O'bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the "heights" of Heaven.

bamah - Biblical definition:

From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: - height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw')

The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama's home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

Seek Jesus while He may be found...repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God...God bless!
