Ingredients

  • 4 cups blueberries fresh or frozen (about 1.5 lbs - 680 g frozen)
  • 5 peaches pit removed, sliced (no need to peel them)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot or cornstarch
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Topping

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 6 small Medjool dates pitted
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp solid coconut oil *see notes – or ghee or cold butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • vanilla ice cream to serve, optional – not paleo unless it's a homemade paleo one!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F / 175C degrees

  2. Prepare the filling. In a large bowl, add blueberries, peaches, maple syrup (or honey if using), orange juice, arrowroot and vanilla. Toss to combine and transfer to a large baking dish (I used a 9 x 13 baking dish)

  3. Prepare the topping. Place the pitted date in the bowl of your food processor. Pulse to break down into pieces, until it's almost a paste. 

  4. Add almond flour, almonds, dates, maple syrup (or honey if using), cinnamon and salt in the bowl of your food processor. Pulse until the mixture ressembles small gravel.

  5. Add coconut oil and pulse until the mixture starts to clump slightly.
  6. Stir in shredded coconut with a spoon and spread the topping over the fruit mixture.

  7. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the sides are bubbling and the topping is golden.
  8. Let it cool a bit before serving with vanilla ice cream (optional – and not paleo unless it's a paleo ice cream!)
