About the Recipe
I’ve been on a diet protocol called AIP (Auto-Immune Protocol) for a little over one year to heal some thyroid troubles I was having. On AIP there are no grains, refined sugars, legumes, nuts or seeds, among other things — which as you can image, made dessert a little challenging.
On another note, every winter, I forget that rhubarb exists. Then every spring I am filled with joy like a child on Christmas morning the first time I see rhubarb at the farmer’s market in the spring.
Well, adding these two things together — the lack of desserts in my life for the last year, and my excitement over rhubarb — I had to get to work creating in the kitchen!
I came up with a tasty Coconut Peach Rhubarb Crumble that respects my current dietary choices (and what’s best for my body), while also allowing me to bask in the unique, tart, springtime-bounty that is rhubarb!
Even if you are not on an AIP diet, this crumble is high in fibre and healthy fats — meaning you can enjoy it without a blood sugar crash an hour later. Or, if you’re looking for an easy breakfast you can enjoy for several days, this dish would certainly do the trick!
