I called this a paleo apple, pear and cherry strudel because it has all of the ingredients of a strudel but I didn’t roll in a dough but topped with a crispy topping. I poured almond milk on mine and it was the perfect dessert with my cup of tea.. Paleo desserts are the best!!
- 3 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted, divided
- 3 large apple (look for cooking apples)
- 1 pear
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1/4 Cup dried cherries
- 1/4 Cup toasted pecans
- 1 Cup almond meal
- 1/3 Cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 2 Tablespoons cinnamon
- 1/2 Teaspoon nutmeg
- 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
- 1 Tablespoon cold unsalted butter
- 1 Tablespoon coconut palm sugar
Preheat oven to 325. Prepare a 9×9 baking dish by brushing melted coconut oil. Peel, core and quarter the apples then thinly slice. Chop pear (into chunks all the same size) Layer the apples in a lightly oiled 8×8 baking dish. Add apples and pears then coat with lemon juice. Add in a layer of dried cherries and pecans. In a medium bowl combine almond meal, coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup and salt. Then add remaining coconut oil. Take butter and break apart and mix using your fingers into the mixture. Top apple mixture then sprinkle palm sugar. Bake for 25 minutes and serve warm. Enjoy!
