This AIP apple crumble recipe is scaled to serve just two people, which means you won’t feel terrible if you end up eating the whole thing! The topping is made from tigernut flour, which gives it a great taste and texture, plus some nutritional benefits you don’t get in other AIP flours.


  • 1 large or 2 small apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup tigernut flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or lard
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Peel apple(s) and cut into chunks no bigger than 1 inch square.
  3. Toss apple pieces with lemon juice and then place all pieces into 1 large ramekin (16 ounces) or divide between 2 smaller ramekins (7-8 ounces each).
  4. Place ramekin(s) on a small baking sheet and put in oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine tigernut flour, coconut oil or lard, applesauce, and pinch of salt. You may wish to use your hands.
  6. When 15 minutes is complete, remove ramekin(s) from oven and layer crumb topping evening on top of the partially cooked apples.
  7. Return ramekin(s) to oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until filling is bubbling and topping is browned but not burnt.
