Grain-Free Fruit Crumble

The Filling

  • 4 cups, chopped organic fruit of your choosing (such as apples,      blueberries or peaches)
  • 3 Tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 2 Tbsp organic, grade B maple syrup (coconut sugar or xylitol) 
  • 1 Tbsp fresh organic lemon juice
  • dash of organic cinnamon
  • dash of sea salt

The Crumble

  • 1/4 cup organic coconut sugar 
  • 1/3 cup organic almond flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, diced and chilled 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 
  • dash of cinnamon (up to 1 teaspoon)
  • dash of nutmeg

1. Mix all the fruit, arrowroot powder, maple syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon, and sea salt together until the fruit is evenly covered. Then place all the ingredients into an 8×8 glass baking dish or desired bakeware.

2. Mix together the coconut sugar, almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well incorporated. Cut in the diced butter in until even pea-sized “crumbles” form.

3. Sprinkle the crumble evenly over the fruit filling. Bake in 350 degree oven until the fruit is bubbling and the crumble is slightly browned – about 30 to 40 minutes.

   Reuse-a-Shoe Drive 

 for Earth Month 
 April 7 through May 16

       Boxes located in:  

  • Brier (by game room)
  • Mountlake Terrace (by espresso stand) 
  • Lynnwood
  • Clearview
  • Seaview
  • Center for Families

Turn your old sneakers into places to play. Nike Reuse-a-Shoe project takes worn out athletic shoes and grinds them down to create a new material called Nike Grind, which is used to make high-quality sports surfaces including courts, turf fields, tracks and more. 

Reusing old athletic shoes also decreases the need for virgin rubber and other materials, decreasing the environmental impact of using new materials when building courts, tracks, fields and playgrounds..

You can drop off athletic shoes of any brand for recycling. Nike's recycling equipment is set up specifically for the material and dimensions of athletic shoes. For this reason we are not able to accept sandals, flip-flops, dress shoes, or boots. We also can't accept shoes containing metal such as cleats or spikes
