A few years ago my husband was a part of a volunteer group and they would take turns bringing dinner for everyone. He told me that one of the members was a vegan so I took the opportunity to make an entirely vegan dinner that everyone would love. For dessert I made this fruit crumble that my whole family absolutely fell in love with! In fact, we love it so much that we will eat it for dessert, breakfast, and sometimes at snack time. Plus, it comes together very quickly. Healthy, fast and amazingly delicious?!?! I couldn't ask for more.
Peach Berry Crumble (vegan & gluten-free)
2 c. berries (I used frozen mixed berries)*
1/4 c. brown sugar (or more, depending on the sweetness of the fruit)
2 T. corn starch
1 t. cinnamon
1 & 1/2 c. oat bran
1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 c. unsalted almond butter
1 & 1/2 t. almond extract
*If using frozen, thaw before preparing this dessert.
In a large bowl, combine fruit, 1/4 c. brown sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Mix well.
Pour fruit mixture into a 9x13" pan.
In another bowl, combine oat bran, oats, brown sugar, and salt. Cut in almond butter until crumbly. Add almond extract and continue mixing until the mixture is uniformly moist and crumbly.
Sprinkle crumb topping over fruit.
Bake at 425 F for about 20-25 minutes.
I didn't have any vanilla ice cream, but that would have been perfect!
