Also, I found that coconut oil did not impart too much of a coconut flavor overall, but just enough. Our gal Stephie has also promoted both of my cookbooks right here, and has been a guest on my blog as well, so there has been a healthy amount of cross-pollination between Stephie Cooks and TRR. a little more than 4 cups, washed, dried and sliced, soft (use refined if you want to avoid coconut flavor), Holiday side dish or full meal - this sausage stuf, Countdown to Thanksgiving and I have the best pale, New on the blog today - paleo one skillet chicken, New on the blog today - Paleo Pumpkin Gingerbread, If you’re needing another thanksgiving side, or, This gluten-free and Paleo Apple Crumble Pie is se, New (!!)

I am making this tonight! ), it’s THAT good! We usually eat it with homemade vanilla ice cream, and whether I double or triple the recipe, it will still be gone in a day (and there are only 2 people in our household). As for the crumble topping, it’s a mixture I love that’s somewhat similar to my apple crisp topping, except using maple sugar instead of syrup and almonds instead of pecans.  At all.  Did you not even ask a question? So, we have fresh strawberries that get tossed with a bit of lemon juice, tapioca or arrowroot flour as a thickener (either will work) and maple sugar for incredible flavor. The crumble topping was fantastic. This was great. We’ve had legitimate fights about people taking more than their fair share (my partner thinks he can get more than half because he’s bigger than me, but I completely disagree… I need more because my poor little body is going to wither away!  I didn’t make my own ice cream to top this one, but did use my family’s favorite coconut vanilla ice cream (I purchase it at my local grocery store.).

Your email address will not be published. Well, she knows that things have been a little loco over here for me and offered to share a super fantabulous recipe with y’all today – how could I turn down that offer?? But let’s rewind now to the beginning – the strawberries. I can ALWAYS get on board with doubled crumble!! Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). I pinned it. If you’re looking to serve more than 3 people, I would recommend doubling the recipe, because this dessert is so easy to dole out in large portions.  I hope so…go slice those strawberries and let’s bake this! The crumbles turned out small and pasty more than crumbly and the strawberries became really soft and liquidy. Thanks again! They’re too different to know the measurements, I typically use about 1/3 the amount of coconut flour as I would almond, so if you do want to try it go with that ratio 🙂. Hi there! Amazing warm with ice cream & so good cold too for breakfast or a snack- just enjoyed some with my coffee moments ago. I put it on top anyway, but it did not brown or solidify in baking, it stayed soft and amorphous–blending somewhat with the bubbly fruit. Thanks. Paleo & Vegan Strawberry Crumble.

I enjoy this dessert as a perfect paleo dessert and even my non-paleo family members enjoy this great treat.

Of course you do – we were just oo-ing and ah-ing over her new cookbook last week with this Massaged Kale Salad with Creamy Blueberry Vinaigrette! I love fruit crumbles and strawberries are always a great choice . I wound up loving the flavor so much that I use it just as often as coconut sugar, if not more, but essentially the two are interchangeable as far as baking recipes go, so by all means, use coconut sugar if that’s what you have on hand! But I cannot detox without at least a few treats in there and this Paleo Strawberry Crumble is amazing for situations like that. That being said, next time I would add only as much liquid as it seems to need to become crumbly – you may need it all or you may not.
