Nectarine-Raspberry Crisp with Quinoa-Almond Topping
Crisps are one of the best summer desserts. They come together in minutes, then can be left alone to bake. Plus, you get everything a pie has to offer in much less time and with no risk of a soggy crust. Quinoa flakes and toasted almonds give the tasy gluten-free and dairy-free topping crunch and texture. Sweetened with maple sugar and made buttery by coconut oil, it's a good recipe to have on hand for any summer fruit combination. Try it with any summer fruit combination, like peaches and blueberries, blackberries and apricots, or mixed plums.
For the filling: Toss the nectarines, raspberries, arrowroot and vanilla in a large bowl to combine. Transfer the mixture to a 10-inch ovenproof skillet or baking dish, and spread out the fruit.
For the topping: Toss the quinoa flakes, almond meal, rice flour, oat flour, maple sugar and salt in a medium bowl to combine. Drizzle in 4 tablespoons of the coconut oil, and stir to combine. Add the maple syrup and vanilla, and mix again. Stir in the almonds.
Crumble the mixture over the fruit. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons coconut oil, and sprinkle with the cinnamon and maple sugar. Place the skillet on a baking sheet, and bake the crisp until the fruit filling is bubbling and the topping is golden, 45 minutes. Serve warm.
