This peach berry crumble is delicious and makes a wonderful dessert!
Peaches – A delicious juicy peach has an abundance of health benefits and is low in calories! Peaches also keep the skin healthy due to the vitamin A and C in peaches that make them a great moisturizer and they are often used in cosmetics. It also helps in regenerating skin tissue.
Coconut oil is actually very good for us. In tropical climates like Polynesia, Sri Lanka and the Yucatan where they have a diet high in coconut oil, the people are healthier, have less heart disease, cancer, and colon problems than unsaturated fat eaters. It is now accepted that there is good cholesterol and there are good saturated fats. Learn the 12 benefits of Coconut Oil, this newly declared an Amazing SuperFood.
Coconut sugar – Coconut sugar is made from the sap of coconut flowers by boiling it down to dry sugar blocks or a soft paste or a granulated form. Coconut sugar contains a higher amount of nutrients compared to brown sugar as it has some amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, chlorine, magnesium, sulfur, and micronutrients.
For this recipe and all my recipes, I use Himalayan salt which is actually good for you!
As I don’t use sugar for my baking I often use stevia which is the healthy option. The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based. Liquid forms will be less processed. Go here to learn How to Get the Best Stevia Without the Bitterness
Brown Rice Flour – Has become a staple in my baking adding fiber and nutrition. It assists in weight loss, helps reduce cholesterol and balances energy. It is low cost and adds a somewhat dry gritty crumbly texture.
Oats – are a low-calorie food that provides high levels of fiber and low levels of fat. They help tp stabilizes blood sugar and reduces the risk of diabetes while removing bad cholesterol.
If you want gluten-free oats, here is a very good one Harvest Gluten Free Organic Rolled Old Fashioned Oats which is good for cooked oatmeal porridge. For making a crumble, it is better to have one like this: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Quick Cooking Rolled Oats
Walnuts – I love walnuts! My mom loved to cook with them because they add flavour and crunch to any meal. Now I know that walnuts are also highly nutritious, so much so that I consider them a powerfood..
Almonds – Almonds are very tasty and so beneficial for our health. They are my favourite nut; most mornings I add 7 to 10 almonds to my breakfast.
