Gluten-Free Raspberry Pear Crisp with Walnuts

Raspberries and Pears! Mmm...
I've decided that my favorite fruit pairing is raspberries and pears.

During the fall farmers market here in Lincoln, I had the most delicious tart with those two fruits. It was incredible!

I started looking online for gluten-free recipes for a crisp or tart. I found one that looked promising, but I couldn't open the recipe. So disappointing!

So, I decided to make my own.

I know I don't do much with food on this blog, but food is important in everyone's lives. It's how we live. It's what sustains us to experience life! Taste is an incredible sense. It's just another way to experience the goodness in this world.

I hope you enjoy! :)

Gluten-Free Raspberry Pear Crisp
Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo adaptable

1  pint Raspberries
2  Pears, Chopped
2 tbsp  Sweetener of Choice
Pinch of Salt

Crumble Topping:
1/2 c  All-Purpose Flour/Almond Flour*
1/4 c Coconut Flour
1/4 c  Sweetener of Choice**
1/2 tsp  Cinnamon
1/4 c  Walnuts, Chopped
4 tbsp  Coconut Oil
1 tsp  Molasses
1 tsp  Vanilla Extract

Mix the filling and add to greased baking pan.

Mix topping ingredients together and sprinkle onto the filling.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

Serve with your favorite creamy, vanilla ice cream or Almond Dream.

Makes four servings.

* You can make it full of gluten-y flour if you're not gluten-free! If you want to make it Paleo, choose your favorite flour.

** If you like a sweeter crumble, double the amount of sugar. I was trying to make mine a little more healthy, so I used about half of the normal amount for crisps.
