Overview

This pumpkin crumble mixture requires a food processor to make, but with only 4 ingredients (coconut, dates, walnuts and sea salt) it's super quick to make and very versatile. Combine with pumpkin filling.

Directions

  • 1. Place all "pumpkin filling" ingredients into blender and blend until well combined. Set aside.
  • 2. Re: "crumble," briefly process coconut, nuts and salt until pecans are reduced in size.
  • 3. Add dates and continue to process until mixture is coarse meal that still looks fluffy. Do not over-process. (You may still see small dark chunks of dates, but that’s okay.)
  • 4. Optional: Once crumble is done, you can optionally add in your dried cranberries for additional festive color.
  • 5. Once you are ready to eat, combine as you wish (see pics). Generally, the crumble should go on TOP because it won't get soggy as quickly.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Here's a perfect Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas treat that can be whipped up super quickly. No prep or waiting required!

Some warnings for ya!

Do not combine the fruit with the crumble mixture until you are ready to eat!! Otherwise everything will get soggy. Avoid assembling the two until *immediately* before eating. Leftovers should be stored separately - one container for crumble, another container for the pumpkin mixture. Feel free to make both items and store them in the fridge in advance though. 

I love cinnamon, I mean, I am BONKERS for cinnamon. But PLEASE listen to my cinnamon measurement. Stick to the 1/2 teaspoon. Don't over-do it! Thank you.

Hi Amy, you could use canned unsweetened pumpkin instead of the pumpkin filling, but that has most likely been cooked. Ideally it would be raw pumpkin puree as outline in the recipe :)

Hope this helps!

I didn't have pecans so I used cashews & it was really good. My husband even liked this recipe which was shocking.

Id like to substitute pumpkin for apples? Can i do that?

Hi Debbie,

Mmmm kinda! Apples are really firm, for an easy substitution, maybe try peaches or mangos instead... ?

If you want to do an apple crumble, I wouldn't do a puree - just thinly slice and marinate them in lemon juice and maple syrup for an hour or so in a low dish to soften them.

In my members-only area (The Rawtarian's Kitchen) I recently posted a peach crumble too - here's a pic of it to inspire ya!

This looks wonderful--what is a "pie pumpkin"? Thanks! :-)

They are generally sold (during autumn) at your local grocery store in the produce section for baking. "Pie" or "sugar" pumpkins are much smaller, sweeter, softer and less fibrous since they are grown for cooking/flavor as opposed to grown for size. If you're not sure, just ask someone working in the produce department at your local grocery store for a pumpkin that is sold to be eaten!

Hi Cristy! They are just the smaller pumpkins that are sold in the produce aisle for cooking with (as opposed to the huge pumpkins sold in giant bins as jackolanterns - they don't have as much flavor)

Sometimes they are also called sugar pumpkins.

As for volume, try for 2 cups chopped
