Healthier Peach Crumble
Nothing satisfies a sweet tooth craving like crumble of any kind. Normally, we make apple crumble, but wanted a change so we decided to try making crumble with peaches instead. We were not disappointed. We hope you love it as much as we do and it won't sacrifice your waist line!
The riper the peaches the better this will turn out so make sure you choose your peaches wisely or let them ripen before you make this.
We hope you enjoy this healthy snack. Let us know what you think and share with loved ones! Great for a family barbecue, dessert or just as a treat!
4 extra large peaches, diced (or 5-6 medium)
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 ½ tsp almond extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
¾ cup old-fashioned oats (gluten-free if necessary)
¼ cup flour (ideally whole wheat or millet flour)
2 tbsp agave or unpasteurized honey
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (or margarine)
Preheat the oven to 350°F
Lightly coat an 8” square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, mix together the diced peaches, cornstarch, almond extract, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, mix oats, flour, and remaining cinnamon together. Add in agave and butter, mixing until completely incorporated.
Spread the peach mixture into the prepared pan.
Evenly sprinkle the oat crumble on top.
Bake at 350°F for 35-45 minutes, or until the peach juice is bubbling and the crumble turns crunchy.
Cool to room temperature.
For best results, let the crumble rest for 2 hours after coming to room temperature before serving to allow the juices to thicken.
