Paleo Apple Pear Crisp and a Giveaway!
I’m really excited to be sharing with you today’s post! Laura from Paleo People recently contacted me about doing a post about Paleo People snacks and the funny thing is I had actually recently purchased a variety pack of my own and loved her product. I was more than willing to share with all of you and was even more excited when Laura and I discussed a giveaway! Yes, we all love a giveaway. Let me tell you a little about Paleo People and Laura. Paleo People launched in March 2010 and are currently in 70+ stores in the US and also is available in Canada and Australia! Laura was a previous CrossFit Affiliate, where members are advocates of food choices based on a Paleo Diet (as you’ve heard about the blog for awhile now). After being frustrated with the lack of products on the market that fit into her Paleo lifestyle she created Paleo People. The Paleo People snacks are naturally gluten-free, wheat & grain free, and without any fillers. The snacks are offered in 4 very unique varieties: Apple Crisp, Banana Nut, Cacao Nut & Cappuccino Crunch. They are available in 5 oz stand up pouches or 1oz grab, go snack size packages, and if you want more there is always the 15 oz size too. I ordered the 5 oz variety pack which have been great as a quick snack for not only me but for my little ones. Our favorite flavor is the Apple Crisp and the Cacao Nut.
Now for the fun part….the giveaway! Laura is offering up 2 winners a chance to win 12 – 1oz size package of a variety of the flavors of Paleo People. Yay! Here’s what you’ll need to do to enter the giveaway…you’ll have multiple opportunities too so read the below carefully:

Now before I leave you to enter away for the giveaway I have to tell you about the Apple and Pear Crisp. I actually used my Apple Crisp Paleo People as the crumble of this crisp. It added so much to this crisp and get this….it’s a Paleo friendly dessert/treat! Perfect for the fall weather out there and even better to try for the upcoming holidays if you need a Paleo friendly dessert to take to a party or even have at your own dinner or party. Enjoy the crisp and good luck on the giveaway! I’m really excited for 2 of you to try these snacks!
Paleo Apple Pear Crisp
1 cup of Paleo People Apple Crisp
½ cup almond flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 to 2 teaspoons honey (optional)
2 ½ tablespoons coconut oil
2 pears, peeled and cored
2 apples, peeled and cored
1 ½ teaspoons apple pie spice (or ground cinnamon)
Juice from ½ of lemon
Preheat oven to 350.
In a small bowl combine the Paleo People Apple Crisp, almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, honey (if using), and coconut oil and using a fork blend together. The crumbs should be wet, if they are still dry add ½ tablespoon of coconut oil and blend with fork again.
Peel and core the apples and pears and cut into small pieces. The size of the pieces depend on how chunky you prefer your crisp. I like mine to be pretty finely chopped. Place the diced apples and pears in a small bowl and toss with lemon juice and apple pie spice (or cinnamon).
In 4 individual ramekins, place apple/pear mixture filling about ¾ full. Then top each with the Paleo People Crumb mixture. Cover each ramekin with aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Then remove aluminum foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes until the tops are golden.
Allow to cool slightly before serving. Top with Paleo Pumpkin Ice Cream or other Paleo friendly ice cream of choice.
Note: If you don’t have People People on hand, you can use chopped pecans instead.
