Apple Peach Crumble For Two

Apples and peaches, together at last. Honestly, this recipe is not a mecca of healthy substitutions, but at least we’re practicing moderation. Also, the trick of cooking the fruit for a bit before putting it in the oven softens them so you don’t have to add excessive sugar to soften while baking. Maybe for your next cheat day? Ingredients:
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 medium peach, peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or agave, honey, or sugar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp cloves/nutmeg/ginger
  • ¼ cup oats
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar (or sugar substitute)
  • 2 tbsp almond flour (or flour of your choice)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp pecans or walnuts (optional)
applepeachcrumble Directions:
  1. In a small pot or skillet combine apple, peach, vanilla, maple syrup, and ½ tsp of cinnamon, bring to a boil and stir occasionally for 5 minutes, then bring to a simmer for another 5 or until fruit is soft and mixture is thick.
  2. Pour into a small greased baking dish.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine the rest of the spices, oats, brown sugar, flour, and nuts. Mix well, then add the butter and mix together until well conformed (it’s easier if you use your hands for this part).
  4. Sprinkle the oats mixture over the apples and peaches and bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
