Paleo Peach Crumble
Serves: Makes 4 servings
This crumble is delicious served fresh from the oven as dessert, a la mode with your favorite ice cream (check out my tutorial for homemade dairy-free ice cream here and it also makes a really great breakfast, too.
  • ⅓ cup raw hulled sunflower seeds
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup cassava flour, available here (or other gluten-free flour of your choice such as tigernut flour or arrowroot flour)
  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar, available here
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons solidified coconut oil or grass-fed butter/ghee (plus more for the skillet)
  • 4 peaches, sliced
  • 6 figs, quartered
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Lightly brush the bottom of a cast iron skillet or 8” square glass baking pan with a little coconut oil (or butter).
  2. Add the sunflower seeds, shredded coconut, cassava flour, coconut sugar, spices and salt. Pulse until well mixed, but with little bits of the seeds still visible. Add the vanilla extract and solidified coconut oil and pulse a few times until the mixture is clumpy and crumbly. You can add a small amount of liquid (melted oil or water), if the mixture is too dry to crumble, more cassava flour if it’s too wet.
  3. Place the sliced peaches and figs into the greased skillet (or pan), evenly sprinkle the crumble mixture over top and bake until the crumble topping is golden brown, the fruit is soft and there is lots of juice from the fruit, about 15-20 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve. You can add just a little more shredded coconut, if you’d like and top with a scoop or two of your favorite dairy-free ice cream.
If your coconut oil is in a liquid state, measure out the 3 tablespoons and place into a dish in the freezer until you are ready to use. Then roughly chop before adding to the food processor.
