Paleo Challenge Day 6 – Rhubarb & Mixed Berry Crumble

How would you like to eat dessert for breakfast? Well there would be no guilt if you ate this dessert for breakfast. One of my favourite desserts of all time is Crumble, but eating Paleo rules out that sugary crumble topping. Not anymore….

I love using produce grown in my own garden to make food for my family. At the moment we have a lot of rhubarb. So my favourite recipe to make is crumble, and I know I am not the only one that would think of that first.


It was the first time I have made a paleo crumble. I was going to be really upset if it wasn’t super tasty.

Rhubarb & Mixed Berry Crumble

½ cup macadamias
¾ cups almond flour
2 Tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup honey
4 Tablespoons coconut oil
2 cups rhubarb, small diced pieces
2 cups mixed berries, frozen
1 teaspoon lemon juice
5 Tablespoons honey
1½ Tablespoons arrowroot powder

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Put the macadamias into the TM bowl (or food processor) and use the turbo to chop to desired consistency. I left ours a bit chunky to give the crumble some texture.
Add the flours, cinnamon, salt, honey and coconut oil. Mix it together speed 1 for 1 minute, till just combined. Set aside in the fridge while you prepare the fruit.
Put the berries and rhubarb in a large bowl with the lemon juice, honey, and arrowroot powder and stir through well.
Place the fruit filling into a flan or oven proof dish. Crumble the topping evenly over the top.
Bake for approx 25 minutes. The topping should have browned and the fruit should be bubbling. Remove and allow to cool a little before serving.
And the verdict…
This was so yummy! The whole family gobbled it up and loved the topping. Hubby even checked that it was in fact Paleo, he thought it was so nice. I personally thought it was THE yummiest crumble I had ever tasted.
So of course I started to think what else I could use this crumble on…crumble topped muffins might be next. This recipe will become a regular at our home and I hope it becomes a regular for your family.
Make sure to try it for breakfast, nuts and fruit…its actually good for you.

  1. I made this last night & it is AMAZING! It’s even a hit with my 5 yo – especially because she felt like I was letting her have sweets for breakfast! This will definitely become a regular. Thanks Brooke.
