Paleo Peach Blueberry Crisp

Paleo Peach Blueberry Crisp

This is a wonderful summer dessert. I make it with all different kinds of fruit, but this paleo peach blueberry crisp is my favorite combination. Fresh summer peaches and blueberries make the filling naturally sweet. And the combination of pecans and coconut oil in the crumb crust tastes buttery to me — without adding any butter or ghee. This crisp is completely dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free and refined sugar-free.

I don’t add anything at all to the filling for this recipe. I like the pure unadulterated fruit baked until it’s soft and bubbling. The sweetness, and the amount of juice, depends on the ripeness of your fruit. It turns out a little bit different every time, but it’s best with perfectly ripe summer berries and peaches.

Serve this paleo peach blueberry crisp with whipped coconut cream or ice cream for dessert. Or serve it for breakfast — the leftovers are perfect paired with a frittata.

      I haven’t tried this recipe with olive oil so I don’t know if that will work. I have tried it with ghee, and ghee is a good substitute for the coconut oil.

      The honey just adds a little sweetness to the crisp topping. If you can’t have honey, substitute with your favorite sweetener or just leave it out. Add a little extra coconut oil to the topping, if needed, to get it to a “crumb” consistency.

    Made this for my gluten- and dairy-free mom, and she LOVED it, as did the rest of my (non-diet-restricted) family!! Thanks for the recipe, this is definitely a keeper!!

      Samantha, almond flour and coconut flour have very different properties so they can’t be substituted for each other in recipes.

    Thanks for the inspiration! I used this as a foundation for trying a dessert and it was awesome!!! But I’m relatively new at paleo style eating and all the relearning how to cook with new ingredients.

    Fantastic recipe! I used mixed berries for the fruit and I replaced the coconut oil with butter and didn’t melt it but cut it into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender then stirred in the honey. Thanks for a great recipe, I’m sure I will be using it often!

    What about storage? Once cooked, should it be stored at room temp or in the fridge? This is my sister’s absolute favorite dessert by the way- thank you so much for the recipe!

      I store it in the fridge and let it come to room temperature or warm it in the oven before serving. It’s my husband’s favorite dessert too – it never lasts long at our house. :)

      Hi Sara, nut flours and grain flours have very different properties so they can’t be substituted for each other in recipes.
