  • Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes, or until the topping is slightly browned.

  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together the coconut milk and coconut sugar.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Once boiling, turn the heat to low and let the mixture boil slowly. Stir frequently, scraping the sides and bottom to avoid burning.
  • Continue boiling until caramel has reduced and thickened about 30-35 minutes. The caramel will continue to thicken as it cools.

  • Allow to cool completely. Pour into a glass container and serve alongside the crisp, or refrigerate for up to two weeks.
