RECIPE: SIMPLE PEACH CRUMBLE
Ah, winter. The season of Saturday night Netflix binges, cosy Pilates classes while it pours rain outside, and toasty stone fruit desserts that warm up our insides.
If there was ever a dish that was made for winter, this would be it: Simple Peach Crumble by The Fit Foodie Sally O’Neil, which we nabbed from the latest issue of our favourite health and wellness magazine, A Conscious Collection.
This warm dessert is sweet, crunchy and oozy all at the same time, and – like all of A Conscious Collection’s drool-worthy recipes – it proves you can have your cake and eat it too (aka, still treat yourself while staying on track toward your fitness goals.)
- 6 ripe peaches
- 4 tbsp coconut sugar or local honey
- 1/4 cup coconut oil or grass-fed butter
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Slice 4 of the peaches into wedges and lay into a shallow dish.
- Cut up the flesh of the other two peaches and pop into a blender with 1 tbsp of the coconut sugar or honey. Blend until smooth.
- Pour the peach liquid over the wedges to fill in any gaps.
- In a small bowl, make the crumble by adding the oats, coconut oil, remaining coconut sugar and cinnamon. Using your fingers rub the mixture together until well mixed and clumping together.
- Dot the crumble mix over the peaches evenly, and bake in a preheated oven at 170C for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool a little before serving with a drizzle of good quality cream or plain yoghurt.
