Recipe Tips

  • As mentioned in the ingredient list, I suggest that you add nuts for a bit of extra crunch. Try adding nuts such as macadamias, almonds, hazelnuts and almost any other nut except peanuts.
  • Since the apple and rhubarb is already cooked, the only reason you need to bake this in the oven is for the topping. If you prefer a more chunky filling, then I suggest cooking the apple for a bit less in the pot.
  • If you find the topping mixture is too wet simply add some more of the dry ingredients. Alternatively, if the mixture is too dry try adding some more coconut oil.
  • This Paleo rhubarb crisp goes excellent with some coconut custard. If you have the time, I highly recommend trying it out.
