Meatless Monday Recipe: Paleo Raspberry Crisp

I had some delicious homemade cherry cobbler with homemade ice cream (Thanks, Andy!) the other night, and since then I have NOT been able to stop thinking about crisps and cobblers.  I’m usually all about the chocolate desserts but if there is a yummy seasonal fruit crisp or cobbler on the menu, it usually wins out!

The hubs and I decided to try going Paleo for 8 weeks to see how much of an impact it makes on how we feel.  I’m also personally motivated to see if the extra fat on my arms melts away to expose these awesome muscles I’ve been building in Pilates 🙂

So yesterday, I was on a mission to collect what I needed to do a little Paleo baking!  I found a great recipe for a cherry crisp from Mellissa who authors the blog, I Breathe … I’m Hungry. We love fresh raspberries and found some beautiful ones to throw into this crisp in lieu of cherries.

Fresh Raspberries

Raspberries have only 5 grams of sugar and 65 calories per cup, so if you are interested in limiting sugar in your diet they (and most other berries) are one of the better fruits to be eating.

Without further delay, here is this week’s Meatless Monday Recipe — my version of a Paleo Raspberry Crisp.

Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

For the topping:

1/4 cup pine nuts (chopped finely in a food processor or coffee grinder)
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon water
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt

In a medium bowl, combine the raspberries, almond extract, coconut milk and maple syrup. In another bowl combine all of the topping ingredients and mix well until crumbly. Pour the raspberry filling into a Pyrex pie plate.

Raspberry Filling

Top with the crumble mixture and bake for 35 minutes in a preheated 375 degree (F) oven. Remove from the oven and drizzle a little more maple syrup over the top. Let cool before serving. Enjoy!

  1. I’ve been semi Paleo since this past October and I’m always looking for Paleo treats. Thanks for sharing. It looks so yummy!

    • Thanks Bridget! The raspberries were a little on the tart side, so if you like a sweeter dessert definitely add a little maple syrup on top. I have to admit, I had a little for breakfast this morning too 🙂

  3. This is so great!!! Definitely a keeper. I used what I had on hand (pecans instead of pine nuts, shredded coconut instead of almond flour, agave syrup, omitted almond extract). I thought I had too much topping, so I didn’t use it all, but then wished I had. Quick & easy, delicious! Thanks!!
