Fonio Almond Mango Crisp

Prep Time
Cook Time

October 6, 2020 by Pierre Thiam

Looking for a baking project that is SO satisfying but not too sweet? Look no further. Our fonio-based crisp is sure to be a hit. For the best crumble, be sure to slightly overcook the fonio and let cool on a sheet pan before topping off your mango. Additionally, we recommend you check your crisp halfway through – if it’s browning too fast, cover the baking pan with foil for the remainder of the baking time to avoid burning that delish fonio crumble!



Serves 6 people
    For the Filling
    • large mangoes, peeled and diced
    • tablespoons fine-ground almond flour
    • tablespoon lemon juice
      For the Topping

      • ½  cup light brown sugar
      • ⅓  cup fine-ground almond flour
      • ¼  cup + 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
      • teaspoon cinnamon
      • ¼  cup + 2 tablespoons cold butter
