Homemade fall fruit crisp with apples, plums, figs and cranberries

This is what dreams are made of I tell ya. Fall fruits cooked until they are bursting with flavor. Baked with a blend of almond meal, oat flour, sunflower seeds, tart dried cranberries.

What is it about a crumble topping that is so amazing and completely addictive? I don’t think I have ever met anyone who doesn’t have a favorite version of this recipe. No matter what the season you can bake up  a fruit crumble, even when time is tight. Have one handy for aprés ski, after the playground, family gatherings, brunch with girlfriends, etc…

With hardly any effort you can have one of the best ever desserts in minutes. Check it out…

Do you like my new Le Creuset stoneware baking dish? I went crazy for it when I saw that green color at Sur la Table. They call the color fennel. Makes it sound more fancy. I like fancy.

Use whatever fruit you have on hand. The toppings are versatile too. For this crumble I went gluten free with my favorite almond meal and some oats that I ground up in the blender. You don’t have to grind the oats though. I just thought it would be a fun texture with the ground almond meal.

Choose any fresh fruits of the season. I used apples, plums, figs and dried cranberries…

Add a dollop of Greek yogurt or top with freshly whipped cream. You can make layer parfaits too.

I was so excited when I found these tart dried cranberries at Mother’s Market. I often avoid this dried fruit because I don’t like all the added sugar. I finally found one that is fruit juice sweetened. They also have one at Trader Joe’s that is awesome!

I have been enjoying this daily for breakfast. When I am not feasting on Pumpkin Pie Tarts. Or Berry Goat Cheese Pizzas….

Do you know what the difference is between a crisp and a crumble? I am trying to figure that one out. From what I gather a crisp and crumble are quite similar. The crumble having a smoother, more breadcrumb like texture. Mine sounds a bit more crumbly. We love crisps too, check out my Cherry Cranberry Oat Crisp and my Sweet Potato Crisp recipes.

I have been hiking around Telluride taking photos of the glorious fall leaves. Can you believe those colors? I will have a post dedicated to that splendor soon to.

I love coming home from a chilly hike after lugging all my gear. The condo smells amazing when I bake up one of these! What is more comforting than the smell of apples and cinnamon?

Fall Harvest Fruit Crumble – Gluten Free

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

Fall Harvest Fruit Crumble – Gluten Free

Ingredients

    Fruit Filling
  • 2 large Apples, cut into bite sized pieces leave the skin on
  • 5 Plums, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 8 Figs, cut into bite sized pieces
  • a splash of Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla or Almond Extract
  • Stevia or your favorite sweetener to taste (depends on the sweetness of your fruit)
  • Crumble Topping
  • 1/2 cup Almond Meal Flour
  • 1/4 cup ground Whole Oats
  • pinch of fine Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted Sunflower Seeds (roasted or raw)
  • 2 tablespoons melted unrefined Coconut Oil
  • a handful of fruit juice sweetened Dried Cranberries
  • optional: 1 dropper full of Vanilla Stevia Drops or a little of your favorite natural sweetener

Method

    Fruit Filling
  • Put fruit in a medium sauce pan with 2 tablespoons of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, partially covered for 25 minutes. Stir a few times. Remove from heat and let cool a bit.
  • Crumble Topping
  • Whisk together the almond flour, oats, salt and cinnamon and sunflower seeds. Stir in the melted coconut oil and optional sweetener. The mixture will be chunky and crumbly.
  • Assemble
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. In a 10 1/2 by 7 inch oven safe baking dish add the fruit and then the crumble topping. Bake for about 20 minutes, until slightly browned. To brown a bit more you can heat under a low broiler for 4-5 minutes. Watch carefully if you do this so your crumble does not burn.
  • Notes
  • I like Gala, Granny Smith and Pink Lady apples. The are a nice combo of sweet tart flavors, plus they don't get too mushy.
  • Have fun with your fruit. Pears would be great in this too.

I just made a fruit crisp last night that was extremely similar! Funny! Great minds think alike? I made one with plums, figs, and orange zest. It was very good, but I like the idea of adding an apple-will have to try next time.

@Alex I love the idea of orange zest! I will do that next time. Sometimes I use orange extract in this kind of fruity baking.

I would say a nice mixed berry crumble is my favorite, topped with a dollop of greek yogurt (or vanilla fro yo, if I’m feeling naughty).

Hi Marla,

My mother used to make something similar to a crumble that she called it granolada. It involved cajeta and queso fresco with some peaches and pepitas too. It was great as breakfast and we just devoured it.

The babysitter we had growing up made the BEST apple crumble in the world. My mom and dad went on dates once a week so we got apple crumble every single weekend. Christine (the babysitter) would come over with all the ingredients and we’d spend the night baking. You know, come to think of it, that’s where I learned to love baking. I still have the recipe, but haven’t tried making it since I went gluten-free. I should get on that!

okay this would be even better with a shot of Rémy Martin cognac tossed in with the fruit – the alcohol would burn off during baking leaving a new depth of flavor to the crumble – that’s my fav way to make fruit crumble – or peach pie ! #Just Saying!!!

Hey Lucy….now that is a great idea. i do enjoy different kinds of spirits in cooked foods. You are so right…adds a great dimension of flavor and elegance.

111 Beth October 12, 2011 at 4:04 pm

I have also been wondering about the difference between crisp and crumble…I just kind of guessed that crisp would be harder…or crispier, and a crumble would…fall apart. Logic has never been my strength.

Your crumble sounds delicious—I especially love the fruit combination for the filling!

PS: I love the colour of your baking dish!

Reply

112 Marla October 12, 2011 at 6:12 pm

Beth, I am loving that color too. When I stumbled upon it at Sur la Table I got all giddy. It came in a package of two sizes too which makes this even better! There is a smaller one too.
I like your logic on the crisp-crumble controversy. I would say you have great logic!

I have to say that apple crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on top is my all-time favorite. Or maybe it’s blueberry? No, definitely apple.
Yes, Marla, that green baking dish is beautiful. I’m so afraid to go into Sur la Table, don’t know if I’d be able to control myself!
Almond meal is my new favorite thing! I’ve been using it the past few weeks and it has added such great flavor and texture to everything I’ve made. LOVE it!

Reply

166 Marla October 13, 2011 at 6:57 am

Lynne, isn’t it amazing how you can’t stop using that almond flour once you open a bag? I use it everywhere I would ordinarily use breadcrumbs & of course to replace/add to grain based flours. It is tough to decide on a favorite fruit crumble. There are so many! Sur la Table is soooo tricky to go into ;) That and Lululemon for me.

Peach is my favorite though I do love apple in the fall. I have fond weekend memories of driving through rural Indiana/Michigan countryside purchasing sweet, just picked peaches from roadside stands while on my way to my in-law’s lake cottage. Most of the peaches were paid for on the honor system (leaving money in a designated spot). Interesting story – one of those juicy peaches caused my husband’s wedding ring to slip off his finger and into the lake of the dock he was sitting on. I came back from a shopping trip only find my husband and father-in-law waist deep in water feeling for the ring. They eventually did find it, so happy ending for all.

I just had Mima here for a few weeks in my home and we put together a peach and cherry crumble that took me right back to my childhood, standing on a chair in her kitchen baking crumbles and cobblers. :)

Peach! Nothing beats peach crisp- or crumble. And now that I have a sugar free recipe, I will make it more often! I love your sugar free baked goods. I don’t even add the stevia- just leave it naturally sweetened by fruit, and its enough for me. Thanks for doing all the test-work to make these sugar free recipes work!

I usually make a crumble in a jar using a mason jar. You can get any type of fruit and like the above, combine fruit with some sweetener and make a standard crumble. However, I am a big protien person. I always need something high in protein for every meal. So my little spin is that I put a layer of ricotta cheese before the crumble, sometimes sweetend if I am not using that sweet of fruit (ie. cranberries) and usually mixed with some spice (ie. cinnamon, cardamom etc…) It melts down into the fruit and the mason jar is great for an on-the-go breakfast!

Reply

218 Marla October 14, 2011 at 8:59 am

Margy…I do the same thing!! Love this. Ricotta is so high in protein & I love it’s neutral/creamy flavor. I have not melted it in the mason jars though. Will do!

My favorite crumble right now is an apple blueberry crumble with a walnut/oatmeal topping. Light on the added sugar and no butter. Let the natural flavors of the fruit bring on the sweetness.
