GLUTEN-FREE APPLE-BERRY CRUMBLE

Fruit crumbles are so delicious and versatile. Your choice of fruits are endless! You can enjoy this one anytime of the year. I used frozen berries in my recipe but you can use seasonal fruits in the summer, stone fruits in the fall and frozen fruits in the winter. Also, this recipe is gluten-free!

If you’re feeling extra fancy you can enjoy it with some ice cream or coconut whip topping.

  7. Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes before serving. Top with yogurt, ice cream, or coconut whip. Enjoy!
  8. For coconut whip: remove the lid of the can and scoop the solid coconut floating at the top (try to avoid the coconut water at the bottom) and place in a bowl. Add the maple syrup if desired. Use a whisk or a hand-held blender to whip until fluffy. Done!
