Peach Crumble and Crunchy Cereal


Looking for a yummy raw cereal recipe? Yesterday my Raw Oatmeal Crunch Cereal was featured on Healthy Blender Recipes as part of August's dehydrated recipe roundup. Every day of this month you'll find a different recipe from various chefs, and American residents get the chance to win a 9 tray Excalibur dehydrator. How awesome is that?! I've featured this recipe before on Sweetly Raw but if you haven't seen it I hope you'll check it out. It totally reminds me of crunchy boxed oat cereal that I used to love.


August is the month of delicious, juicy Ontario peaches. Mmm. Don't you love biting into a ripe peach that sends juice down your chin?! Hehe, well maybe you don't mind if you're outside. Anyway, I've been enjoying these sweet gems lately. They're a great snack and I love adding them to my breakfast protein smoothies.


Peaches are a perfect ingredient to turn into crumble too! The other day I whipped up this super easy raw vegan peach crumble for dessert. Leftovers made a tasty and delicious breakfast the next day. I even like this for lunch while sitting outside in the sunshine.


Easy Raw Peach Crumble

I always use this crumble topping. It's my "go to" recipe that I've featured many times on this blog.
If you have it, a scoop of vanilla ice cream elevates this dessert to a new level!

Crumble Topping

1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup pitted, packed dates
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup ground raw oat groats, or regular oats
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1-2 teaspoons water

In a food processor, grind all ingredients together into a crumbly, yet moist texture.
If you want the mixture to press together a bit better, add 1-2 teaspoons of water.
Evenly spread the crumble over the filling.

Filling

7 medium peaches, diced (skin on)
2/3 cup diced peach
2 medjool dates, pitted
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla
Dash of cinnamon

Blend the diced peaches, dates, vanilla, and cinnamon in a food processor until smooth.
Transfer to a bowl and fold in the 7 diced peaches.
Spoon into ramekins or bowls, or small pan. Top with crumble.




Onto ice cream sundae talk... the voting is still in process. If you haven't yet voted for your favourite ice cream sundae, there's still time. Vote now! The winner receives a Sweetly Raw prize package.


I'm currently starting to test the recipes for the grand prize. It's a work in progress but I'm having fun tasting (and so far everything tastes so great I know it will be very hard to choose a winner). Not exactly sure when I'll have the final result but will keep you posted. Probably around the same time the viewer voting finishes on August 29th.

I hope you'll try the peach crumble!
