Paleo Rhubarb Crisp Recipe
- 7 apples
- 5 stems rhubarb
- 1 tsp. cinnamon, ground
- 1 tsp. lemon
For the topping:
- 1 cup almond flour
- 2 Tbsp. coconut flour
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 tsp. cinnamon, ground
- 4 Tbsp. coconut oil
- Nuts if you prefer an extra crunch
- Preheat an oven to 180°C (350°F)
- Chop the apple into large chunks and place into a saucepan.
- Chop the rhubarb into 5cm (2 in) pieces and place on top of the apples.
- Add the lemon & cinnamon.
- Place the pot on the stove and cook for 5-15 minutes or until the apple has softened.
- Meanwhile prepare the crumble by placing all the topping ingredients in a bowl (Almond flour, coconut flour, honey, cinnamon, coconut oil)
- Using your fingers, mix the ingredients until it resembles a crumbly mix.
- Place the apple & rhubarb mixture into a greased 8×8 pan.
- Place the topping on the top of the apple mix.
- Place in the oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.
- Serve & Enjoy
- As mentioned in the paleo rhubarb crisp recipe ingredient list, I suggest you add nuts for a bit of extra crunch. Try adding nuts such as macadamias, almonds, hazelnuts and almost any other nut except peanuts.
- Since the apple & rhubarb is already cooked, the only reason you need to bake this in the oven is for the topping. If you prefer a more chunky filling, then I suggest to cook the apple for a bit less in the pot.
- If you find the topping mix is too wet simply add some more of the dry ingredients. Alternatively, if the mix is too dry try adding some more coconut oil.
