How To Make A Berry Crisp?

The first thing you will need to do is find any fresh berries that is in season, such as blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries. Combine 5 cups of mixed fresh berries with agave nectar, tapioca starch, lemon zest, and lemon juice. What makes this recipes unique is that we used tapioca to make it gluten free and agave instead of white sugar to make it paleo. You can substitute the tapioca starch with arrowroot starch, and you can substitute the agave nectar with maple syrup.

For the topping, combine almond flour, coconut sugar, chopped pecans, coconut flakes, virgin coconut oil, salt, and vanilla paste in a large bowl. Use your hands to mix everything well and incorporate the coconut oil. I like to buy almond flour from Costco, the price is unbeatable.

Like I said before, this recipe is all about the topping, so you will have lots of it to scatter on top of the berry filling. Bake in a 350F oven for 40 minutes, or until the topping is deep golden brown. Let cool down for 10 minutes before serving.
