Paleo Berry Crisp

Ingredients for the Topping

½ cup finely ground almond flour

1/3 cup maple sugar or coconut sugar

½ teaspoon Celtic Sea salt

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground cardamom

5 Tbsp chilled ghee or coconut oil, cut into bite-sized pieces

1/3 cup whole raw pecans

1/3 cup whole raw almonds

½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes


Ingredients for the Berry Filling

6 cups mixed cut-up berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc.)

2 Tbsp maple sugar or coconut sugar

2 teaspoons tapioca starch

2 teaspoons lime zest

2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice


Instructions for the Topping

1. Put the almond flour, maple or coconut sugar, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom in a food processor work bowl fitted with a steel blade.

2. Add the chilled ghee or coconut oil. Pulse the mixture 5-7 times until the mixture has a coarse cornmeal texture.

3. Toss in the nuts and coconut flakes. Pulse until the mixture looks like nubbly wet sand with some nutty bits – don’t overdo it because you don’t want a dough to form.

4. Transfer the topping to a bowl and chill in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.


Instructions for the Berry Filling

1. While the topping mixture is chilling, heat the oven to 375° F with the rack in the middle position.

2. Toss together the berries, maple or coconut sugar, and tapioca starch in a medium bowl.

3. Add the lime zest and juice and mix gently with a spatula, turning over to combine.

4. Transfer the berries to a 2-quart baking pan (8-inch square or 9-inch round) and spread them into an even layer.

5. Evenly distribute the chilled topping over the berries.

6. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the berries are bubbly and the top turns golden brown.

7. Cool for at least 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, topped with whipped coconut cream if desired. Enjoy!

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
