Cran-Apple Gingerbread Crumble (Paleo, AIP)

Dear Readers,

I wanted to share with you one last treat for this holiday season as well as to say a heartfelt thank you for making this food blogging venture so much fun. The Paleo Partridge has just celebrated its six-month blogiversary! Your support and feedback in the way of comments here on the blog as well as in tags on various social media have made this such a rewarding experience, and I’m super stoked to keep on keepin’ on as an autoimmune warrior come food blogger.

Using food as medicine has changed my life profoundly, and I started this blog so that I could share my story – the good, the bad, and the yummy!

Your fortitude and determination in overcoming chronic illness encourages me daily. You inspire me to keep creating dishes full of nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory foods. And I’m looking forward to sharing more with you in 2015.

May your holiday season sparkle with joy…and some of this Cran-Apple Gingerbread Crumble. 😉

Warmest wishes,

Martine (a.k.a. The Paleo Partridge)

Cran-Apple Gingerbread Crumble
Recipe type: Treats
  • For the Base:
  • 1 c fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 5 apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • For the Topping:
  • ¼ c coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp. arrowroot flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • ¼ c shortening or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp. water
  • Optional: 2 tbsp. finely chopped pecans (provided you are not following AIP)
  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Simmer cranberries, apples, maple syrup and ginger on medium heat for 10 minutes. Then pour into a lightly greased 8x8 baking dish.
  3. Mix coconut flour, arrowroot flour, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves in a medium bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup. Stir to combine thoroughly.
  4. Add the water and continue to mix until you have a pastry-like consistency.
  5. Place this mixture in the freezer for 5 minutes. This will make the dough super easy to crumble.
