I have a huge obsession with crumbles! I love making a light and healthy version that is a guilt-free dessert. It is so healthy that you can even enjoy it for breakfast (which I often times do). I decided to bake a crumble using strawberries and pecans which pair so nicely together. I also love the taste of baked strawberries. It’s also vegan and gluten-free so everyone can enjoy it!
This recipe is really easy to make. The first step is to simply chop up the strawberries and place them in a lightly greased ramekin (I greased mine with this coconut oil spray) and splashed some lemon juice over the strawberries.
The second step is to make the crumble topping by simply combining the oats, pecans, coconut flakes, cinnamon, coconut oil and maple syrup into a food processor and processing for about 30 seconds. You still want some chunky pieces, so don’t process it until is is smooth.
You then pour the crumble mixture on top of the strawberries and bake in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes (until the topping is golden) at 350 degrees fahrenheit. I like to serve it with some yogurt (dairy-free if necessary) or coconut ice cream.
