Gluten Free Peach & Pear Crisp

July 10, 2016

 

peaches

So, it is the middle of summer and my family and I are craving all things Fall.  Why, you ask?  No idea…

Maybe since moving to Southern California from Minnesota, we miss the seasons.  I have been told we have 4 seasons in So Cal, but I have yet to see them…at least not in the drastic manner in which we were used to back in Minnesota.

Pies, crumbles,crisps, mulled spices, anything pumpkin or apple consumes our thoughts and I did the only thing I could think of that is fast.  Peach and Pear Crisp.  I haven’t set out to make this grain free yet, and I will!  But this worked in a pinch!  And in the healthiest manner possible!

Recipe Notes

If you cannot use the brands that I have listed above, it is NOT a deal breaker.  These are just the best possible and healthiest versions that I have found through all of my years of research and testing.  With regards to canned anything...avoid corn syrup whenever possible.  And your sugars should be the least refined if possible.  Most of all, use your common sense.  If it has too many ingredients and ones you do not recognize as FOOD, avoid it.

Granola won't brown and therefore cannot be used as an indicator of done-ness.  Instead, look for bubbling along sides of ramekin.

Coconut Whipping Cream is optional and recipe can be found here

Instructions
Wet Ingredients
  1. Melt butter and add in maple syrup
  2. Mix eggs and milk together, then add in butter/syrup mixture
  3. Set aside
Dry Ingredients, Extras & Final Prep
  1. SIFT together coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt
  2. Mix wet and dry together
  3. Stir in Chia seeds and flax seeds into muffin dough
  4. Let sit for 5 minutes
  5. Fold in blueberries
  6. Stipple batter 3/4 full into greased muffin pans (basically your batter won't be smooth in the cup, it will look rough and rugged)
  7. Bake at 375° for 35-45 minutes. You know they are done with tops start to brown and when touched will 'bounce' back.
Modifications
  1. Instead of blueberries, you can adapt these muffins in many ways! Really, let your imagination run wild. Here are a few that I have tested and the family loves!
  2. Carrot and Raisin 1Cup Shredded Carrots & 3/4 Cup Sulfite free raisins
  3. Cranberry Orange 1 Cup unsweetened frozen cranberries (thawed and minced) & zest of 2 oranges
  4. Banana and Cacao Chip (chocolate) 2 Bananas mashed & 1/2 cup Cacao Chips
Recipe Notes

Baking Paleo is very different than traditional baking. Due to the fact that the flours are much heavier and you are using a lot of eggs, they 'dehydrate' as much as they bake. Depending on the wetness of your final batter, (mine is usually much drier than traditional batter), will affect how long to fully bake them. After a couple trials, you will figure out which consistency works best with your oven and your brand of coconut flour. (yes, that makes a difference)
