Healthy Dessert Recipe: Raw Vegan Peach Blueberry Crumble

I don’t know about you, but I’m always searching for delicious healthy dessert recipes that satisfy my sweet tooth without sacrificing my health. This peach blueberry crumble is one of my go-tos.

It’s not always easy to find a recipe for a vegan crumble, as many crumbles tend to use butter. Instead, this recipe relies on vegan butter or coconut oil to make the crumble stick.

If you’re gluten free, you’ll be happy to hear that this is a gluten free crumble that doesn’t require any wheat flour. You’ll use a mixture of almond flour and oat flour for the streusel.

What are you waiting for? Your family will love this delicious peach blueberry crumble.

Elements of a raw vegan recipe

As I’m sure you already know, being vegan means you don’t consume any animal meat or products. This includes eggs, butter, milk, cheese, honey, and other animal byproducts.

Not only does a raw vegan diet follow these exclusions; it also stipulates that food should not be heated, cooked, or processed. Basically, food should not be exposed to anything higher than 118°F.

For a recipe to be considered raw vegan, it must meet all of these requirements. This vegan crumble is completely raw vegan because it uses only unprocessed ingredients and does not involve baking. Rather, the crumble sets in the fridge.

What’s the difference between crumbles, crisps, and cobblers?

These three desserts are all closely related and have similar names, so they can be difficult to differentiate. All three of them typically involve a fruit or mixture of fruits.

A cobbler is a dessert made up of dollops of biscuit dough on a bed of fruit. This dough puffs up to look like cobblestone streets, which is where the name comes from. Cobblers tend to be denser than crumbles and crisps.

A crumble is a fresh fruit dessert with a streusel topping. It may or may not include nuts.

A crisp is very similar to a crumble, but the topping tends to be less dense. It often includes oats as well.

When it comes to choosing which kind of fruit to use in your cobbler, crumble, or crisp, there are tons of different options. You can go with a sweeter dessert by using strawberries and blueberries, choose a tart combination of rhubarb and mandarins, make something classic with apples, or experiment with whatever fruits you have on the counter or in the freezer.

Personally, I love the combination of blueberries and peaches because they complement each other so well. For a no-bake recipe, this is the perfect fruit combination because the texture is so appealing.

That being said, feel free to experiment with this vegan crumble recipe and let me know which fruits you’ve tried using! You might stumble upon a new favorite.
