Paleo Style Fruit Crisp

Things I learned today, part 4:

- 35 degree weather can, indeed, feel like a heat wave. And I’m not really sure how to feel about that. It’s awesome and borderline pathetic all at the same time.

- If you wear your brand new running shoes right after a snow storm, they will no longer look new. The filthy, black slush on the ground will make sure to take care of that.

- There is one good thing about running on roads covered in slush, ice and snow: it works your legs as if you were running on sand. So, in a way, it’s almost like running on the beach. Except, you’re wearing 10 layers of clothing. And the ocean is nowhere to be found. And if you fall, there’s a good chance you’ll break your neck. Ok, so it’s nothing like running on the beach. But it’s a hell of a workout! ( glass half full people, glass half full…)

- I came to realize, again, how much I detest this weather. Between the snow storms, below freezing temps and being stuck in the house for days, the feeling just keeps getting stronger. This polar vortex thing or whatever you wanna call it can kiss my grits

But on a warmer, happier note, this whole being-stuck-at-home-for-days thing means we get to spend (a lot of) time in the kitchen. And yummy  little gems like this paleo style fruit crisp are created. Nothing fancy or complicated. But comforting and satisfying enough, that it almost makes you feel like you’re eating a slice of warm banana bread. Or at least that’s how we feel about it (again, trying to stay positive here!).

And I know we’ve been using the term “paleo” a lot lately, but these recipes just happen to be  paleo friendly so, why not?

Enjoy :)

    I’m hating the cold weather too, and I suppose it’s nowhere near as cold as the states where I live… but it is still so so cold. Running in the (filthy) snow feels terrible uuugh. Glad you had these fruit crisp to make up for it! They look fabulous! <3

      Thanks!! Yes, that crunch is yummy and slightly healthier! Looks like we had the same idea, using pears for our recipes. Your tart looks fantastic :)

    Fruits and seeds and nuts = YUM! So, seeing this is so healthy – maybe I could eat this instead of running in the snow? I think I would be one happy camper cooped up inside with a bucket – i meant – bowl of this crisp!

      Hahahaha! Yes, those were my thoughts as I was outside stepping on freezing cold puddles and filthy slush!! And I like that bucket idea by the way ;)

    What a fabulous mixture of fruit! I’ve been trying to consume less gluten lately and love using almond meal. These look delicious!

    I made something very similar to this and it was delicious. Unfortunately I ate it all before I could photograph it haha! Yours looks sublime and I like the addition of chia seeds (they are always welcome on my plate)

      Hahaha, I have to say, that happens to us A LOT! And we love chia seeds. We use them any chance we get!!

    I feel you! This weather is bringing out the “detester” in me, too :) When it was +20 degrees, it WAS like a heatwave … pathetic! This fruit crisp is anything but – all the fruit (bananas, blueberries and pears are so creative!) and the coconut puts it over the edge! Yum!

    This is a beautiful crisp and I love the topping! Definitely adding this to my Paleo arsenal.

    Nothing beats the fragrance and taste of fruit crisp on a cold winter day. I can’t eat bananas but can substitute. Looks fabulous.

    • Vicky & Ruth February 2, 2014 at 1:20 pm #

      We used bananas to add natural sweetness to the crisp, without adding extra honey.I wonder if you could use red grapes instead.
