Summertime means the markets runneth over with blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, and cherries. These are my favorite fruits, and berries in particular are some of the most nutrient dense and antioxidant-rich foods on the planet.
If you’re looking for the perfect healthy grain and dairy free (most are also egg free!) summer dessert, I have all the answers for you. I asked my fellow paleo colleagues to send me their very best berry and peach cobblers, crisps, and crumbles, and here are the results. A great way to use all those summer berries and peaches. Try topping these with whipped coconut cream (or whipped cream if you can have dairy) or vanilla coconut ice cream. Enjoy!
