The BEST Paleo Crumble

The BEST Paleo Crumble with NO Natural Sweetener!

We love a good paleo crumble. FACT.  

1: because they’re so yummy and 2: because they’re SO easy. Oh and 3 because they’re guaranteed crowd pleasers!

Especially when you serve with coconut icecream or yoghurt! Let’s all say it together: DEEEEEEELISH!

We used nectarines, peaches, kiwi fruit, apricots, mango and mixed berries for our crumble but really, you can use whatever fruit you like. What ever is in season goes! And the best bit is that this recipe requires NO NATURAL SWEETENER! Boom!

The BEST Paleo Crumble

THINK: apple, pear, strawberry, blueberry, banana… the only one we think that wouldn’t work would be watermelon… or any melon for that matter, that just wouldn’t be right.


SO! We’re saying, get creative with your fruit, chop it all up and then sprinkle with our amazing ‘BEST Paleo Sweetener Free Crumble Ever’ topping and whack it in the oven! It really is that easy! Our crumble is the BEST ever because we used ghee! And ghee is like caramelly goodness! 

If you make it, be sure to share a pic on social media and tag us with #themerrymakersisters then we can share our faves with the world! Yay!

Always merrymaking,

  1. I have been loving your recipes so far and have a quick question. You often refer to coconut ice-cream – is there a particular brand/s you recommend or is it better to make your own (and do you have a recipe?) Thank you!

  2. I think apple crumble is an excellent desert for the paleo conscious as it not only is healthy but on a winters night it is warm and filling – which is much needed. I have been doing paleo for a month now and really look for this type of food when hungry. Cheers

  7. oh my yumminess!! I have just made this crumble in preparation for breakfast tomorrow! Makes for a treat and an easy morning. Absolutely so delicious (had to have a taste test!), thanks girls. I used apple, and the topping also included some sunflower seeds, flax seeds and chia seeds. Kids will lap it up!

  11. Hi girls. My son is 16 months old and as a brand new bubba screamed and scream non stop for 4 months. My paediatrician suggested a dairy allergy. Which half solved the problem until I switched everything yo soy which he screamed even more so Anyway the story is very long but after seeing a naturopath got off gluten and sugar as well. I am now a year in and still struggling with recipes etc but I made this crumble last night and everyone loved it. I guess I getting at I’ve only recently stumbled across your blog and with the reactions I bought you’re e book because I’m certain to get more crowd pleasers. My husband and 5 year old daughter are addicted to everything naughty. So fingers crossed and thank you. X
