Last week I posted a recipe for Paleo vanilla sauce, and promised to follow up with a recipe of something you can serve it to.
Therefore, here’s my Paleo friendly version of a classic Swedish apple crumb pie!
Ask any Swede to describe an apple pie, and I bet 9 out of 10 (myself definitely included) would describe a crumb pie.
Personally, I just love the simplicity of a good crumb pie! It’s completely unpretentious yet still so beautiful in its rustique-ness, and it always gives you exactly what you want. No more, no less.
Preferably served slightly warm and topped with cold vanilla sauce, the soft and sweet fruit or berries and the crunchy, cookie-like, crust provides an amazing experience of contrasts that match each other perfectly.
In this recipe I use apples and cinnamon, a lot of cinnamon, because…it’s simply the most perfect combination of flavors known to man. (At least to this man.)
I used Braeburn apples this time, but that’s mainly because it was the only organic variety available when I was shopping. You can use any firm and sweet apples you like.
Of course you can also replace the apples and cinnamon with whatever fruit and berries you’d like; blueberries, pears, rhubarb, you name it.
This time however, it’s apples and cinnamon and nothing else. So without much further ado, here’s my Paleo friendly recipe for a classic Swedish apple crumb pie.
Enjoy it as a dessert, or as a treat to the afternoon cup of coffee!
