Fall Fig Crumble

First order of business: Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a 32 ounce jar of Coconut Oil! Go here now (you can come back in a minute)!

Second order of business: I love figs. I know I’ve said it before, but I love them enough to say it again! I think they are underrated and under-appreciated.

I ate them fresh off the tree on the farm in France, as dessert with Ruth and Graham in Spain, and all over Europe, really! I think that is when I truly fell in love with them. They’re pretty tasty on a salad with some bacon, delicious on their own and REALLY good in a crumble!

Last week, I met up with dear sweet Meagan and we went shopping at Trader Joe’s!! I know it’s only been a month, but I sure did miss my favorite TJ’s staples! Trader Joe’s has the best deal on figs you will find so I HAD to get some while I was there.

[After our shopping trip we had some delicious Mexican food with her hubby Joe at Chuy’s!]

I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat all of those figs by myself, even though I love them! And I knew I would be headed to a study session on Saturday for our first Midterm of the year – and what better to eat at a study session on the first day of Fall (even though it’s as hot as ever), than a crumble!

I had never had a fig crumble before, but it sounded like a good idea…and I think it was! At least it got rave reviews at the study session and no one even knew it was grain-free and refined-sugar free!

Fall Fig Crumble

Serves 10-12

Fig Base:

12-16 mission figs, quartered and stems removed
1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup coconut milk

1 tbsp honey

The Crumble:

¼ cup ground flaxseed
½ cup almond flour
¼ cup coconut flour
2 tbsp Tropical Traditions coconut oil
1 tbsp water
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt

Preheat your oven to 375. Combine the figs, vanilla, cinnamon and coconut milk in a large bowl – gently stir until the figs are well covered. Drizzle the honey and stir gently again. Set aside.

Combine all your crumble ingredients (dry first, wet second) until you get, well, a crumble.

Pour fig mixture in a greased pie dish and spread the crumble mixture evenly on top. Bake for 22-24 minutes. Enjoy! It’s really delicious warm and with a cup of tea!

PS- You really could make this with any type of fruit. You need about 3 cups of bite size pieces!
