Healthy Peach Crumble

We host a Life Group from our church at our house twice a month. It is such a great time to fellowship and study the Word with others in our community.  We share meal time together and I typically provide a dessert.

I love to bake.  If you didn’t know that already, then I recommend taking a look at some of my older posts where I share some of my favorite recipes!!

But while I love a good dessert just as much as the next person, I don’t like to mess up my healthy food choices on a regular basis.  So this week, I decided to search for a healthier option and found this recipe for a healthy peach crumble.  I want to share this recipe with you as it was so delicious!

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.

You could top this with some Greek yogurt, or for a bigger splurge, a little vanilla low carb, low sugar ice cream!
