Healthy Peach Crumble

This easy dessert tastes exactly like summer! Soft juicy peaches with a thick oaty crumb topping… Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this healthy crumble is an irresistible summer treat!

Ingredients:

  • 4 extra large peaches, diced (or 5-6 medium)
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
  • ¾ c old-fashioned oats (gluten-free if necessary)
  • ¼ c whole wheat flour (or millet flour)
  • 2 tbsp agave
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (or margarine)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and lightly coat an 8”-square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss together the diced peaches, cornstarch, almond extract, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon until thoroughly combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, flour, and remaining cinnamon. Add in the agave and butter, mixing until completely incorporated.
  4. Spread the peach mixture into the prepared pan, and evenly sprinkle the oat crumbs on top. Bake at 350°F for 35-45 minutes, or until the peach juice is bubbling and the oat mixture turns crunchy. Cool completely 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.
