Ginger Pear Crumble

Ginger Pear Crumble.jpg

Yes, it’s nearly 110 degrees outside and I’m baking...BUT PEARS. AND CRUMBLE. I'm of the opinion that a nice, dessert type comfort food is good year-round. Besides, something this gooey and crumbly-sweet is always weather appropriate!

Clearly I'm a big fan of crumbles. I have at least 3 on the blog and more in the pipeline. But listen....they're easy, versatile, always a crowd please....and you just can't mess 'em up! So even if Paleo/ AIP baking has you a little intimidated, this is one you can make without the fuss.

FILLING
•4 medium pears, peeled and sliced
•1 tsp Ground Ginger
•1 tsp Cinnamon
•2 tbsp Raw Honey
•2 tbsp water

  1. Coat the pear slices in ginger and cinnamon.
  2. In a skillet, warm the honey and water until completely combined.
  3. Add the pears and stir well.
  4. Cover and cook over low-medium heat until pears are soft.
  5. Pour mixture into a 2 qt baking dish.

CRUMBLE
•1 cup Tigernut Flour
•2 tsp Tapioca Flour/ Starch
•2 tsp Cinnamon
•1/2 cup Palm Shortening
•2-3 tbsp Raw Honey depending on preferred sweetness

  1. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Melt shortening and honey together.
  3. Combine with dry ingredients and stir with a fork. It will begin to “crumble” in the bowl.
  4. Crumble it on top of the apple mixture.
  5. Cook at 350 degrees for 35 mnts.
