The Best Sourdough Glazed Donuts

This Paleo Fruit Crisp is an easy dessert with no added sweeteners!

When I did my first round of Whole30, I probably went through what most people do – trying to get over the thought that you need something sweet at certain times. For me, this is Sundays. I don’t make dessert or treats all the time (besides baking cookies and things with my natural yeast), but on Sundays, we relax and have a treat after dinner! It’s a weekly thing we all look forward to. I don’t feel I have to have dessert all the time in order to be satisfied, and I feel I have a very healthy relationship with food. So while doing that Whole30 the first time, I threw together this fruit crisp with compliant ingredients, and it was so tasty, I had to share.

I know it’s against the rules to try and make desserts .  . . so just eat this when you are done Whole30 if you are doing it now . . . or make your own decision. If dessert is a vice for you, I don’t recommend this. But if you are looking for a Paleo dessert that you can make this summer – this is it! It’s simple, delicious, and has no added sugar or sweetener at all! The orange in the coconut cream REALLY adds something awesome to this; the citrus makes all of the other flavors pop.
Fruit Crisp with Orange Coconut Cream (Paleo)
Author: Kelsey
  • 4-5 c sliced fruit – peaches and blackberries together are my favorite, apples are good and so are pears.
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • Topping:
  • 3/4 c raisins
  • 3/4 c almonds or other nuts
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • small handful of unsweetened flaked coconut
  • nutmeg
  • cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Smear coconut oil all over the bottom of a 9×13 pan.
  3. Add fruit in an even layer.
  4. In a food processor, pulse topping ingredients until crumbly.
  5. Crumble over fruit in the pan evenly.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Orange Coconut Cream
Author: Kelsey
  • 1 can unsweetened full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1-2 drops wild orange oil
  1. ** place the can of coconut milk in the fridge the night before making this so that the cream and liquid separate. Or you can now buy cans of coconut cream!
  2. In a mixing bowl, scoop out hardened coconut cream and whip until fluffy with an electric mixer.
  3. Add vanilla and orange oil and mix.
  4. Spoon over warm fruit crisp and enjoy!
