Broiled Grapefruit With Gluten-Free Streusel

Broiled Grapefruit With Gluten-Free Streusel


  •   2 Grapefruits

For The Gluten-Free (Paleo Friendly) Streusel Topping: 

  • 1/3 Cup Chopped Walnuts/Pecans
  •  2 tbsp Almond Meal/Flour
  • 1 tbsp Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 1 tbsp Organic Coconut Oil, Melted
  • 1 tbsp + 1tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • Greek Yogurt with Honey for Topping (Exclude for Paleo or Try Coconut Whipped Cream Instead)
  • Fresh Mint Sprigs (for Garnish)


For the Gluten Free (Paleo Friendly) Streusel Topping Start by Mixing Together All the Dry Ingredients (i.e – Chopped Walnuts, Almond Flour, Shredded Coconut {Unsweetened}, Salt and Cinnamon Powder) Together Well.

Then Pour in the Melted Coconut Oil and 1 tbsp of the Maple Syrup and Mix the Streusel Topping Well and Set it Aside.

To Prepare the Grapefruit Cut a Sliver Off Both Ends of the Grapefruit to Create a Flat Surface for Them to Sit, Then Cut it in Half.

To Make it Easier to Eat, Using a Paring Knife Cut Around the Edges Where the Fruit Meets the Rind, Then Around the Center White Part, Removing Any Seeds as You Go Along. You Can Pull the White Pith Out with Your Fingers if you Want. Next, Run the Knife Between the Segments of Grapefruit to Loosen Them. Repeat for All the Grapefruit Halves.

Place the Grapefruit Halves, Cut Side Up on a Baking Sheet or Oven Proof Pan and Drizzle a Little Maple Syrup Over Each Half (I Used 1 tbsp Among the 4 Halves).

Spoon Over a Little of the Streusel Topping on Each of the Grapefruits Place Them Under Your Oven Broiler on Low Until it’s Bubbly, Caramelized and Golden Brown (About 5-7 Minutes). Rotate the Pan as Needed When You’re Broiling and Keep a Close Eye on Those Suckers…They Go from Golden to Burnt Pretty Quick
