Okay, you caught me…it’s not National Dessert for Dinner Day…but it is Friday, a.k.a. Crumbleday, and we could all use a healthy treat!

Are you as excited as I am that Spring has sprung? Something about Spring makes me want to eat all the brunches outside in the sunshine, and this fresco raspberry delight would be perfect for brunch (slash all the meals and snacks). It’s most definitely going on my Easter menu to share with my family. My plan is to multiply the ingredients by 12, because have you seen my family? We’re abundant. And in my opinion, this recipe serves one, because have you tasted it? It’s addicting.

Last year, I posted a Paleo Strawberry Crumble, which made you folks go berzerk-a-doodles, so I figured I’d tempt you with a similar dessert // breakfast.

For this go ‘round, I used fresh raspberries – you can also use a mix of blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries if you’re looking for some variety. The dessert is sweetened with just a smidge of pure maple syrup, keeping it low on the glycemic index, while still super scrumptious.

For the grain-free crumble topping, I used Bob’s Red Mill’s hazelnut flour, which is my favorite nut flour next to almond. It can be used in the same exact way as almond flour (hazelnut pancakes, anyone??!) and makes for a crispy, flavorful topping to your every crumble.

In order to make the raspberry filling nice and thick, I used Bob’s Red Mill’s tapioca starch. It works similarly to corn starch, but tapioca starch is healthful and won’t irritate your gut, which makes it great for those who have candida or other digestive ailments. Tapioca comes from cassava (yuca) root, and is rich in folate, Vitamin B6, Vitamin K, iron, manganese, calcium, copper, selenium, and fiber. It also thickens at a lower temperature than other starches, making it a choice replacement for corn or potato starch. It’s often used in gluten-free flour blends and I love using it in my brownie/muffin/cookie recipes. I’m pretty much obsessed with the stuff. #TapiocaForDayz.

All recipe componentry added together, you’re getting a healthy dessert (or breakfast) that is gluten-free, refined sugar-free, high in protein, paleo-friendly, vegan, and ridiculously addicting. Like, once you go paleo hazelnut crumble, you’ll never go back.

That’s just the way the raspberry crumbles.

Ingredients

Raspberry Filling:

Crumble Topping:

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, toss together the raspberries, tapioca starch, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and maple syrup. Transfer to an 8” x 8” baking pan.
  3. Mix together the ingredients for the topping in a mixing bowl. Evenly spread it over the raspberry filling and bake in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until the raspberries are juicy and bubbly and the topping is golden-brown.

Recipe Notes

*You can also use grapeseed oil. I don't recommend using olive oil because it will change the flavor of the topping.

    This girl loves a good crumble… Especially if there is ice cream involved! The raspberry and hazelnut combo sounds absolutely dreamy right now. I had no idea Bob’s did a hazelnut meal – will definitely have to pick some of that up asap!!

    I’m suuuuper happy that spring has sprung! How did you resist not eating this while you were shooting the photos?? But confession, I might be celebrating dessert for dinner day a little too often lately. Let’s make it an official holiday now so I don’t actually feel like an oinkster!

    Dessert for dinner day?! Why did nobody tell me?! Luckily it was my birthday so I DID have chocolate for breakfast, does that count?! This looks INCREDIBLE, I’d definitely be there with you licking the dish (or maybe we should just each lick our own plates, cos that’s a bit less weird)

    Bob’s Red Mill is the best! I had to take a break from ordered the almond flour and hazelnut flour in bulk from them because now I’m afraid I won’t be able to use it before it goes bad! Half is on the shelves, half in the freezer ay yai yai. Anyway, who cares about my nut flour issues right? I need a batch of this to appear in front of me now! I missed dessert for dinner day so can I celebrate now? and tomorrow…forever?

    YES to everything about this recipe but mostly because I appreciate anyone who declares it dessert for dinner day. But that’s basically everyday or at least the last 7 days I was on vacation. Am I still making sense? I’m jetlagged wehhhhh. Feed me.

        Would the result of grinding hazelnuts in my vitamix be the same or similar taste and healthywise to the hazelnut flour? I wasn’t able to find the flour, so bought hazelnuts instead?

          Hi Chris,

          Yes, you can make your own hazelnut flour by adding whole hazelnuts to a blender or food processor and pulsing until finely ground. As a heads up, you can also use almond flour to replace the hazelnut flour in this recipe. Hope you love the crumble!! 🙂
