Raw Vegan Peach Crumble

I love making raw desserts!  One of my favorites is my Raw Vegan Peach Crumble.

I whipped up this vegan delight in hopes a sugary sweet (and very summerish) finish to a delish meal.  Well, this recipe is one I eat raw quite often.  I thought, eh, what the heck!  I'll bake it and see how tasty it is nice and warm!  Oh no, friends.  Oh no.  Sometimes, a recipe looks or sounds amazing...but it tastes like crap.  Enter:  The Warm Vegan Peach Crumble.  Perhaps it was the temperature change that made the recipe taste so drastically different?  I don't know.  All I know is, I have a new quest.  A WARM Vegan Peach Crumble quest.   While I set out on my new mission, perhaps you can enjoy the raw version.  Wish me luck!!

Raw Vegan Peach Crumble
Makes 2-3 single serving peach crumbles.

2 ripe organic peaches, peeled and thinly sliced
1/8 cup coconut sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon

Crumble Topping:
1/8 cup coconut sugar
1/8 cup organic brown sugar
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/8 cup whole grain rolled oats (I used gluten free)
1/8 cup chopped pecans
1 tbsp cold Earth Balance vegan butter (optional)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Dash salt

To make: Prepare the filling.  In a bowl, mix peaches coconut sugar and cinnamon.  The ripe peaches should make the mixture moist.  If not, add a small amount of water until the mixture is moistened (the sugar should cling to the peaches but not drip off!).  Divide the filling among 2-3 single serving ramekins.  Prepare the crumble.  Mix the sugars, oats, nuts and dash of salt in a bowl until well combined.  Add in the vanilla, coconut oil and cut in the earth balance (If you don't have a pastry tool for this, use your hands. Just mash everything together until it forms a crumble!  Don't mess with two knives, etc, your hands work just fine! And they're free!) Divide the crumble topping among the filling, and press down slightly.  Eat alone or serve with some non-dairy ice cream (So Delicious has some great varieties!).

I'm relatively new to the raw recipe game.  If you have any substitutions, additions, or changes to make this recipe better, I'd love to hear your suggestions!!  Drop me a comment =)

Enjoy! =)
