Peach Crisp

Jump to Comments

My super nice friend brought me yummy vegan food the other day. It was so great that she brought me food, but it was even greater that the food was so  vegan and delicious! weaking  When I tweak recipes that are already vegan, that usually just means that I lower the fat and sugar and sometimes add something like nuts, or some whole grain ingredients to boost the nutrition, especially for baked goods. This recipe is a great way to have a yummy dessert that you don’t have to feel bad about eating.

Peach Crisp

6-10 peaches, (depending on how big they are) peeled and sliced

1 c. rolled oats

3/4 c. granola, I used a naturally sweetened one, homemade would be even better

3/4 c. Grape Nuts cereal (this is optional and can be substituted with more granola)

1/2 tsp. salt

zest of one lemon

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 c. walnuts, chopped (optional)

1/3 c. pure maple syrup

1/4 c. canola oil, or coconut oil

2-3 tbsp. water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I used pan spray to prepare a 9 x 9 baking dish.

Spread the peaches evenly into the pan. Set aside.

Mix oats, granola, Grape Nuts, salt, lemon zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, and walnuts into a medium sized bowl.

In a separate small bowl, mix together the maple syrup, canola oil (or coconut oil), and 2 tbsp. water.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients together and if the mixture seems too dry, add the extra tbsp. of water.

Spoon mixture evenly over the peaches. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the granola mixture is golden.
