7 cups fruit or berries of choice, coarsely chopped (fresh or frozen)*
1 tbsp chia seeds or cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 3/4 cups whole wheat or spelt flour
4 tsp baking powder, aluminum free
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, solid**
1 egg, large
1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
2 tbsp raw honey or maple syrup
Sesame seeds, slivered almonds, coconut palm sugar, for topping (optional)
1 In a large bowl, add Fruit Filling ingredients and gently stir to combine. Rub sides and bottom of a medium deep baking dish with coconut oil (cooking spray works too) and place filling in an even layer into it. Set aside.
2 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, whisk to combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add coconut oil and work it into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter, fork or I prefer hands, until dough is crumbly and oil is well incorporated into flour.
3 In a small bowl, whisk the egg and then whisk in applesauce and honey. Pour into the bowl from a previous step and mix with spatula until thick wet dough forms. Drop spoon fulls of dough on top of fruit filling evenly. Sprinkle with any toppings you have on hand, like coconut palm sugar, slivered almonds, sesame seeds etc.
4 Bake for 40 minutes (cover loosely with parchment paper if top starts to brown before filling is bubbling) or until filling is bubbling on edges. Serve warm with optional ice cream on top.
