Caramelized Apricot Crumble

This is an excellent, healthy treat for people who are following the strict anti-inflammatory diet.

  • 8-10 Golden apricots
  • 4 Tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1 Cup Coconut flour
  • 1/2 Cup *Tiger nut flour
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Shredded Coconut (raw or toasted)
  • 1 ½ tsp Cinnamon (Ceylon cinnamon is best.)
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Halve and pit the apricots.

  3. Over medium heat in an ovenproof skillet (iron skillets work well), melt 1 tablespoon coconut oil and heat for a few minutes until it starts to bubble a bit, then arrange the apricots cut side down in the skillet, sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and allow to brown for 2-3 minutes. When the cut side is nicely browned flip the apricots over and cook for another 2 minutes, then turn off the heat to prevent overcooking. Let rest while you make the crumble topping.

  4. In a small bowl mix together 3 tablespoons softened or melted coconut oil, shredded coconut, the flours, vanilla, remaining spices and coconut sugar until it forms a crumbly but pasty mixture and cover the apricots in the pan with the mixture.

  5. Bake for 25-30 min until top is golden and crumble topping is fully baked. Apricots will be bubbly.

  6. Remove from oven and serve warm with a desired creamy topping. Keeps well in the fridge and is a great make-ahead breakfast dish as well as yummy dessert!

Use as many organic ingredients as possible.

*Tiger nut flour is not actually from a nut; it is from a root vegetable that grows in Northern Africa and the Mediterranean. Tiger nut flour is gluten free and paleo friendly.
