. . . with my family on a bit of a fruit kick recently, I knew it was time for a crisp, but I found myself craving something other than your standard oat fruit crisp fare.

Tips for making Strawberry Apple Polenta Crisp:

  • Do you want to make this gluten-free crisp sugar-free? This is my favorite coconut sugar replacement!

  • The tapioca starch can be replaced with arrowroot starch or cassava flour for similar results.

  • You can use lemon juice instead of apple cider vinegar for similar results, if you prefer.

  • Due to the unique nature of almond flour, I do not recommend replacing it with anything else. It works quite beautifully when combined with polenta, too!

  • This polenta tastes best straight out of the oven, but will keep covered at room temp for 24 hours or alternatively, keep covered in the refrigerator for up to one week and re-heat in a 350 degree oven until warmed throughout.
