This crumble is full of mineral-rich dates, omega 3-rich walnuts, and antioxidant-rich berries. It’s easy to make, too!
Try it in the height of summer when the berries and peaches are ripe. Or, if you’re seeing this when those fruits aren’t ripe, these fruits work just as well: very ripe tropical fruit, frozen fruit (defrosted), or apples and pears lightly steamed.
The recipe is completely raw, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free. So, you can serve it without worry! It tastes like a really delicious granola-type of breakfast, so it’s versatile and not just for dessert. Enjoy!
4 peaches peeled and chopped into bite-sized pieces.
½ cup blackberries
¼ tsp. vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
1 Tbs. honey
1 Tbs. lemon juice
¼ tsp. sea salt
1 cup pecans
1 cup walnuts
8 pitted dates
½ tsp. vanilla extract
Optional topping: cream from the top of a can of full fat coconut milk, or no sugar added non-dairy ice cream.
Mix all of the filling ingredients together in a ceramic casserole dish or other serving dish and let it sit while you work on the crust.
Put all the crust ingredients into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse the ingredients until a coarse dough forms. Grab the dough by a handful at a time, squeeze each handful to press the dough together then crumble it on top of the fruit mixture in the serving dish.
It will keep in the fridge for a day or so. The dough will get soggy, so don’t put it on top of the fruit until you’re ready to eat.
