Peach Raspberry Crumble

When I was growing up, we always ate dessert with our dinner. After I got married, the practice stopped for me. Now, though, that I’m living with my parents again, dessert is often back on the menu.

One of the oddities of this eating plan is that anything Paleo is “legal.” This isn’t a restrictive diet where desserts have to be limited to a small bite on your cheat day. I’m not suggesting that it’s okay to gorge on desserts, but a dish full of crumble (yes, more than one bite) any time you’d like some dessert is completely reasonable.

Someone posted this recipe on Facebook, and I watched the obnoxious little video long enough to realize it was Paleo. Naturally, mom was totally on the job. The site the recipe came from is called Lexie’s Clean Kitchen, and you can find the original here.

Filling:
4 peaches, sliced
6 oz. raspberries
1 Tablespoon honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon arrowroot or tapioca starch

Topping
1/3 cup ground pecans
3 Tablespoons almond flour
1 Teaspoon honey or maple syrup
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt

1. Combine filling ingredients and mix well

2. Grease casserole dish with melted coconut oil and pour in filling

3. Combine topping ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork until crumbly

4. Pour topping over the filling and bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Serve warm.

5. Enjoy.
