Healthy Peach Crumble Recipe
This peach crumble is so perfect for breakfast – it’s naturally sweet, it’s filling and healthy. Add some yogurt or coconut milk and it’s just delicious. Great during summer when peaches are basically falling off the trees. You don’t need too many here, but if you’re wondering what to do with the ones you have – make this.
This recipe is easily made vegan (use maple syrup, not honey), gluten free when you use gluten free oats, and refined sugar free – there’s just some honey in the crumble. You can also make this recipe using any type of fruit you want that you think would do well here.
And if you’re feeling like dessert, why not eat this with some delicious vanilla ice cream while the peaches are still warm?
Healthy Peach Crumble Ingredients
For this crumble you need some very few basic ingredients that you probably have already at home:
- shredded coconut
- coconut oil
How To Make Healthy Peach Crumble
To make this peach crumble you’ll need a food processor (blender, hand blender or nut grinder will also work), a non-stick pan, your stovetop and 15 minutes. You’ll prepare the crumble first and the peaches right after.
- Blend all the crumble ingredients in your food processor until they stick together, spread them over a pan and toast for a few minutes until golden brown. You’ll have to stir occasionally, to allow the crumble to brown on both sides.
- While you’re doing this, you prepare the peaches. This preparation consists in washing the peaches, removing the pit and chopping them. That’s it.
- Once the crumble is done, set it aside to allow it to cool off and get crumbly. Wipe the pan clean and add the peaches with some coconut oil and cinnamon, make sure they’re covered in cinnamon. You can also add vanilla here – it would be a great addition. Then, cover with a lid and let the peaches cook for a few minutes until they’re soft.
- Transfer to a bow, add the crumble and some coconut milk or yogurt and enjoy immediately.
Btw. if you do have more than one pan and don’t mind washing 2 pans, you can prepare both simultaneously to save time.
You Can Also Meal Prep
You wouldn’t believe, but you can actually double this recipe and have it for the week ahead. Put the crumble in one jar, the peaches in another, keep the peaches in the fridge. Then assemble when it’s time to eat. Or use meal prep containers like these – they have compartments and will prevent the crumble from getting soggy.
- 2 peaches, chopped
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 tbsp coconut flakes
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 tbsp honey
- pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp water
- Put all ingredients for the crumble in your food processor. Process until you get a chunky mixture. Add to a non-stick pan, flatten with your spatula and cook on medium for 3-4 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Take the crumble out of the pan and let it cool off - it will become crunchier when it starts to cool.
- Saute the peaches with cinnamon and olive oil in a non-stick pan for 1 minute. Cover with a lid and let cook for additional 4-5 minutes or until peaches are soft.
- Add the peaches and the crumble to a bowl and top with your favorite toppings. I added some yogurt, but you can also use ice cream for a more dessert-like version, almond butter or coconut oil for a vegan version.
This healthy peach crumble recipe is easily made vegan and gluten-free:
