This crumble is fairly sweet and indulgent, with a little crunch. My kids love it for dessert!


  • 2 med. apple, red, fresh, organic
  • 2 med. pear, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 tbs. lemon zest, from fresh, organic lemons
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice, pure, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ground, organic
  • 1 tbs. maple syrup, pure, organic
  • 2 1/2 oz. pecans, raw, organic
  • 1 1/2 c. oats, old fashioned rolled, dry, organic
  • 2 tbs. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 3 tbs. coconut sugar, organic
  • 3 oz. almond, sliced, organic, raw


Peel, core, and chop the apples and pears. Place them in a saucepan, and add lemon zest, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Cook over low heat with a lid on for about 6 to 8 minutes, until slightly soft. Move the fruit mixture into a dish and pour the maple syrup over; toss lightly.

Chop pecans roughly in a food processor. Add oats, butter, and coconut sugar. Mix until the mixture becomes clumpy. Pour into a bowl, add the almonds, and mix by hand to make a more crumbly mix. (It feels a bit softer and moister than usual crumble mixture.)

Place the crumble mixture over the fruit, crumbling it as you go. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes at 350ºF.
