Nutty Fruit Crisp- Phase 3

You really have to try this! It is so good!! It is versatile, easy to whip up and is rich and decadent for p3 breakfast! You will have to add veggies on the side, unless you add rhubarb in with your fruit. (add at least 1 cup per person for a partial veggie portion)
You can make 2 servings, 4 servings or even one serving. Make it the night before then heat up in the oven as soon as you wake up. 

You can use any Phase 3 fruit- peaches, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, cranberries. Or, use combos- peaches and blackberries are good together. Or all the berries. Cherries and cranberries are great together. You just need the right amount of fruit. 

Use whichever nuts you have, and your favorite nut butter. Mix it up for different flavor combinations. 

Nutty Fruit Crisp
Phase 3
Serves 2, double or halve as needed
Increase each component if you are in the over 40lb club


2 cups fruit
1/4-1/2 cup xylitol (use as much or little, based on sweetness of your fruit)
2T arrowroot powder
2T water
Pinch of salt

Put the fruit, salt and xylitol in a sauce pan and warm over medium heat. Stir arrowroot into the water, add to hot fruit and stir until thick. Pour into baking dish.

Heat oven to 375 degrees


1/2 cup uncooked oats (use rolled or steel cut. Steel cut will be crunchier. A combo is good, too)
1/4 cup raw nuts
2-3T raw nut butter
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup xylitol

Place everything except nut butters in food processor and pulse 5-6 times. Add nut butter and pulse a couple more times to incorporate. Spread topping over the hot fruit. 

Bake the crisp for 15-20 minutes until the top is golden brown. 

This is a fruit, grain, protein and fat serving. 
If you add 1 cup rhubarb per serving, it also is partial veggie serving (standard veggie portion is 2 cups per meal)


  1. This is AMAZING!!...Thank you for your wonderfully delicious recipes!

  2. Isn't this 2 fats, full serving of nut butter plus full serving of nuts? Which would you recommend leaving out?

    1. This recipe serves 2, so you need 2 servings of healthy fat in the entire recipe.

  3. If I made this half rhubarb, and half fruit, then could I eat the entire thing???

  4. No, the topping is 2 servings.If you take out half the fruit, you will have to have half a fruit serving on the side.

  5. I made this with a cup each of cherries and cranberries and mixed in the zest of an orange right before pouring it into the baking dish. I used 2 Tbsp of xylitol in the topping and 3 in the filling and it was the perfect amount of sweetness for me. Thanks for another amazing recipe!
