If you aren’t trying to follow an AIP diet and/or do well with grass-fed butter or ghee you can use that instead.  While coconut sugar is AIP approved, you may want to reduce your overall blood sugar levels so you can use pure monk fruit sweetener or stevia as your sweetening agent.

This recipe can also be made with a AIP approved pie crust. Simply mix 2 cups cassava flour and 1/8 tsp sea salt together in a mixing bowl. Add in 1 cup grass-fed butter, using a pastry blender or a knife to cut the butter into the cassava flour until it resembles oatmeal. Add 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar and 5-6 tbsp. ice water (one tbsp. at a time) and work it into a dough. Stop as soon as dough holds itself together. Roll it out and use as a pie crust.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This AIP blueberry crumble recipe is a great tasting recipe that uses ingredients that are well tolerated by people with autoimmune and chronic inflammatory conditions.  Your family will love the great flavor of this recipe.

The AIP or autoimmune paleo diet is a specific food elimination based nutrition plan that removes gluten, grains, processed sugar, dairy, eggs, corn, soy, nuts, seeds and nightshade vegetables.  Many people with chronic inflammatory- and autoimmune diseases have seen great improvements using this very restrictive nutrition plan.

Unfortunately, it can be hard to find tasty recipes, especially dessert recipes that are AIP approved.  This recipe uses cassava which is a root vegetable that is AIP approved as well as cinnamon and ginger which are great antioxidant-rich spices to support healthy blood sugar levels.

For individuals following an AIP diet, I recommend using a high quality, activated enzyme complex with most meals and especially with this blueberry crumble dish to help improve digestive health and avoid unwanted gut inflammation.  Fully activated HoloZymes reduce occasional gut related complaints including gas, bloating, loose stools, undigested foods, tummy pain, and cramping.
