Tomatillo and/or Apple Crisp

What a great surprise that you can use tomatillos in a sweet crisp! This is the recipe that Rachel used for the CSA cooking demo years ago and we all loved it. The recipe works best if you have a combo of both tomatillos and apples but you can use either one successfully. You can also use green tomatoes for this recipe! Try substituting a portion of the apple in your favorite recipe with tomatillos or green tomatoes and let us know what you think!


Tomatillos and/or apples diced– enough to cover bottom of baking dish

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1 1/4 cup dried coconut flakes

1 1/4 cup oats

1 cup coconut sugar

1 stick butter, cold, cut into 8 pieces

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 ‘º. Mix tomatillos and apples with 1/4 cup sugar and spread over bottom of 9×14 inch pan. Mix oats, coconut, coconut sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a separate bowl. With your fingers or the back of a spoon, smoosh the butter into the dry mixture until it blends in. Sprinkle on top of the tomatillo mixture. Bake 45 minutes. Serve warm or room temperature
