Fruit Crisp is a wonderful one-dish meal, or if you add more sweetener to it, it makes a special dessert. This recipe is the crumble topping for the crisp. You can choose your own fruit filling to go inside it. 


3 c
old fashioned oats or quick oats (not instant oatmeal)
1⁄2 c
chopped walnuts (opt. )
1⁄2 c
coconut flour (OR almond flour OR whole wheat flour)
1 t
1 t
coriander, opt.
1 t
vanilla flavor
1 c
apple juice


MIX all but juice together in a bowl.

ADD the juice last for a nice crumbly feeling.

COMBINE well and sprinkle on top of fruit crisp.

BAKE at 350F for 20 minutes or until golden on top. 

WATCH carefully--it may boil over.


This makes enough topping to cover a 3-quart casserole dish of fruit crisp. Using almond flour or coconut flour adds a natural oil to the recipe, which makes the texture more crumbly and tastes SO good! Coconut flour is also gluten free, so if you use gluten-free oats, you have a gluten-free topping.
