Recipe: Fruit & Nut Crumble

Even the sugar-junkie last night found my primal dessert sweet and decadent!

Primal Fruit & Nut Crumble


500g fruit (I used raspberries, boysenberries, black cherries, and rhubarb)

200g nuts (I used pecans and walnuts)

100g coconut oil or butter

1T cinnamon

1T nutmeg


Melt 40g coconut oil/butter in saucepan, add fruit, and saute until warmed through and softened.

Heat oven to 180 degrees C. Spread nuts on a lined tray, and toast in oven until browned - around 8 minutes, but watch carefully to catch any burning.

Remove toasted nuts from oven, and chop or process until crumbed.

Melt remaining 60g coconut oil/butter, allow to cool slightly, then combine butter, nuts and spices. Stir well to coat nuts evenly.

Pour prepared fruit into serving dish or bowls, and top with nut mixture. Serve with whipped cream dusted with cinnamon. Serves 4-6 people

The photos certainly do not do the dessert justice! But everyone was so keen to dig in, I didn't have the heart to make them wait while I snapped the perfect pics! I might make a mini version soon, in a ramekin, and take better shots - too dangerous to make another big batch, as it is incredibly more-ish!
