coconut crumble recipe

Coconut Crumble

Add this gluten-free topping to both sweet and savory dishes.

Coconut flour is high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats. It's also low in sugar and has a rich, nutty flavor. "This easy topping is perfect for everything from fresh fruit to salads. It's also a great way to add crunch to any savory dish," says bigLittle Get Together chef and co-owner Lauren Gerrie.

1 cup toasted coconut (you can buy this or simply toast fresh shredded coconut in a 350° oven for 4-5 minutes)
1½ cups coconut flour
⅕ cup gluten-free all purpose flour
¼ cup coconut sugar
2 tablespoons coconut oil
½ teaspoon kosher salt

1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a medium-size bowl combine all ingredients with your hands and clump together.

3. Spread evenly on baking sheet and bake for about 7 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely and store in an air tight container.
