Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with coconut oil or line with parchment paper.

Make the crumble. In a medium skillet, add chopped walnuts, cinnamon, and coconut flour. Cook over stove top over medium heat to toast, about 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl. Allow to slightly cool, about 5 minutes. Add ghee and coconut nectar, stirring with a fork or using your hands until crumble is formed. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, coconut sugar, and cinnamon. In a high-speed blender (or separate bowl), add eggs, ghee, coconut cream, orange juice, orange zest, vanilla. Process on medium-low speed until creamy.

Incorporate wet ingredients into dry and beat until batter is formed. Add half of the batter to the baking dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle half of the crumble mixture on top. Add other half of batter and spread to coat. Batter is sticky, so wet the back of your spatula or use your fingers. Top with remaining crumble mixture. Bake 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
