Paleo Apple Crumble (AIP friendly!)

A winter storm is crawling my way, and all I can think to combat it is to make Paleo Apple Crumble.

Snow, black ice, and a freezing wind are enough for me to stay inside all day, but this treat might have me staying indoors for a couple of days (or as long as the leftovers last!). Sweet apples with honey, cinnamon, and a tigernut flour topping. Mhhhmm.

One of my favorite parts of this dessert is that it is simple and easy to make! You only have to mix six ingredients, slice your apples, wait 30 minutes, and you have a delicious, healthy treat that is AIP-friendly, and most definitely Paleo. I love to top it with some coconut whipped cream and savor every bite in front of the fire. Or hiding in the laundry room so no one knows I’m eating the last piece.

I hope you enjoy this Paleo Apple Crumble as much as I do!

(note: I did not bake it in the glass jar, and I do not recommend attempting it! I’ve heard from others that the glass will explode.)

Paleo Apple Crumble

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Peel and slice apples into large slices. Place on bottom of round, glass pie pan.
  3. Sprinkle apples with 1 tsp of cinnamon (reserve the rest for the crust) and drizzle honey evenly across them.
  4. Place glass pan with apples in oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes while prepping crust. (alternatively, you can bake both together, but the crust may be overdone)
  5. Mix all dry ingredients well (tigernut, arrowroot, cinnamon).
  6. Soften oil and coconut butter in microwave for 15 seconds, then combine with the dry mix.
  7. Add maple and vanilla and mix with hands or fork until all ingredients are well combined.
  8. Your dough will be very wet and may not hold together well. That’s all right.
  9. Remove apples from oven.
  10. Spread dough with the back of a spoon on top of partially cooked apples or crumble onto apples and flatten with back of spoon. Be careful not to burn your self!
  11. Place in oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes.  The crust should be stiff and golden brown when done.
  12. Add whipped coconut topping for a really special treat!
