For the berries:
  • 4 cups frozen Oregon blackberries
  • 1.5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch (use arrowroot starch for paleo)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice & zest
For the crumble:
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup oats (use shredded coconut for paleo version)
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt optional
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter (use coconut oil for paleo or regular butter if no dietary restrictions)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (make sure these are paleo for paleo version)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. If using frozen berries add berries to baking dish or cast iron pan and add to oven for 5-10 minutes, until berries are no longer frozen but still cold to the touch.

  2. In a baking dish or cast iron pan add cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon zest, and 1.5 tbsp maple syrup. Mix.

  3. In a separate bowl combine crumble ingredients. Mix. Top berries with crumble evenly.

  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

  5. Optional: Serve topped with ice cream or whipped coconut cream.

Recipe Notes

For a paleo version of this recipe use arrowroot starch instead of cornstarch, shredded coconut instead of oats, and coconut oil instead of vegan butter. 

If you have no eating restrictions you can use regular butter in place of vegan butter and brown sugar in place of coconut sugar.
