This delicious peach crumble is proof that simple food is often the best! Crumbles have long been a favourite dessert of mine so it was only a matter of time before I put a healthy, gluten free and vegan spin on one! The sweetness of the peaches in this recipe work perfectly with the warmth of the ginger and cinnamon making this such a lovely dessert.

Crumbles are my ultimate comfort dessert and, although this is a great Autumnal recipe the peaches give a nod to Summer making this perfect to eat all year round. This recipe is based on my Apple & Rhubarb Crumble which I created earlier in the year using a healthier topping made with gluten free oats and coconut oil. I have used the same ingredients for the crumble topping in this recipe meaning that it is a much healthier alternative to other versions yet it does not compromise on flavour.

I love this dessert as it is, however, if you are not overly keen on ginger and cinnamon you could omit these ingredients. I like to use fresh ginger but you could use the powdered variety if its all you have available to you. If you are a fan of ginger in fruity desserts you may like my Orange & Ginger Drizzle which you can find here. I use fresh peaches in this recipe and have never used the tinned kind, however, I do not see why it wouldn’t work – they just might not need as long in the oven or any water adding.

I have noted the serving size to be two to three as I usually use the amounts listed below to make two large single serve portions of my crumble. If you had a smaller appetite you could make one larger dish of this and have the perfect dessert for three, or maybe even four, people when served with custard or ice cream.

This is best made fresh, however, it does reheat well in the oven when covered. If needed you could always bake the fruit earlier in the day to save time and then add the crumble topping and bake right before serving.

If you like this peach crumble and fancy trying another dessert using these flavours why not try my Cinnamon Grilled Peaches recipe which you can find here. Alternatively, for another crumble that incorporates ginger why not try my Spiced Plum & Gin Crumble which you can find here.
