This Apricot Crumble is totally AIP, totally paleo, totally gluten and nut free and TOTALLY yummy! There’s just something about baked fruit goodness. YUM!
Okay, okay, I know what you’re thinking…. it’s pumpkin season and this weirdo is posting a recipe for apricot crumble. I know it’s a little unusual, but it still feels like summer here and even if you’re in the middle of winter, a summer dessert can warm you up and make you forget briefly how cold it is. If you can’t get your hands on apricots, this crumble can also easily be made with apples, peaches, mangos or any other fruit you enjoy in a crumble.
PLUS, the first time I made this crumble, I served it to my church small group and it was gobbled up in a matter of minutes. And no one accused it of being weird healthy food. I barely had time to grab a spoonful for my hubby and I to share. Next time, I’m making 2, because I know this bad boy is a HUGE hit!
Now, for a little background behind this crumble. I do have a cute story I could share about creating this recipe because my mother in law had generously bought us a whole box of apricots and I needed a way to use them all quickly. But, instead I thought I’d share why I’ve been so quiet recently.
I guess you’ve all noticed the new website home. I know there are still a few kinks, but I’m working on them and having so much fun going back through old posts and bringing some new life into them. Anyway, I had dreamt of Adventures in Partaking having our own .com site for a long time, but had heard how much work it was and just didn’t have the time with working full time and planning a wedding and getting married and settling into a new life and moving and so much else going on.
Then, one day, out of the blue, a friend who happened to be without work started offering some advice on the blog and how to improve it. I couldn’t let this opportunity pass me by and hired my friend and we got started on moving Adventures in Partaking to our new home. I hope you’ve enjoyed the move as much I have and I can’t wait to be able to share more and more yummy recipes and helpful articles with you in the months and years to come.
Before I share the recipe though, can I ask you a favor? I know we’re all friends out here in AIP website land. Between my busy year and the blog move, I’m afraid that some of our friends might have forgotten where to find us, or forgotten some of our favorite recipes. So, can I ask you to share this Apricot Crumble or one of your favorite Adventures in Partaking recipes on either facebook or pinterest and help to spread the word about all the yumminess they’ll find here. Thanks!! I knew I could count on you!!

**A note about “AIP Treats”: While it is true that this cobbler and other treats on this blog are made with AIP friendly ingredients, it should be noted that the AIP diet is primarily about nutrient density and healing and with that in mind treats should be reserved for special occasions. Treats are occasional foods, not everyday food. Treat often are higher in sugar content (even fruit) and as sugar causes inflammation for many of us following AIP, we need to make treats an occasional part of our lives.
