National Peaches and Cream Day-Peach Crumble Celebration!

Peach CrumbleSo it is a good day.  It’s June 21st and that means it is National Peaches and Cream Day!  I have to say I love food holidays.  At my old job we would plan ahead and then on that specific food day we would bring in yummy dishes.  Donut Day was always a big hit…though we didn’t really need a holiday to celebrate to get donuts for everyone.  So for National Peaches and Cream Day, I made Clean Peach Crumble.

Peach Crumble for breakfasts! Yes! I said it…dessert for breakfast.  Who doesn’t love that concept?  I mean oatmeal tastes like dessert but it is still a breakfast item; but this peach crumble is totally dessert but healthy enough for breakfast.  I love that.

So this was another attempt for me to stay on track with the clean eating.  There is no added sugar, just my trusty Maple Grove Farms maple syrup.  Don’t you love when you pour out syrup and some drips down the side and you get to lick it off!  Yum.  But, I digress. This is also not an overly sweet dessert, which is perfect for me and my hypoglycemia.  Too much sugar in the morning and my head starts swirling around. Not good.

It is summer which means peaches are in season, but for some reason the prices don’t seem to go down whether fruit is in season or not.  These peaches were Dollar Tree peaches.  Isn’t it great that the Dollar Tree has added refrigerator and freezer sections?  Peach CrumbleNo, it isn’t top quality, but frozen fruit and veggies are frozen fruit and veggies.  If there are no added ingredients and the quantity is the same is a big name store brand then why the heck not buy it for cheaper?

I also decided to make my own oat flour.  Simplist thing in the entire world.  Just drop your measured oats into the food processor and let it go until your desired consistency.  I like mine a little rougher, not as fine, so I only let it process for less than a minute.  I like being able to spend money on the oats and not just use them for one type of meal but different uses-makes things fun 🙂

Crumbles themselves are super simple, so please try one yourself.  All you do is cut up your fruit in small chunks, and boil them with spices and some syrup or desired sweetener.  Add dried ingredients to a bowl and add either applesauce, milk or banana and blend.  Pour fruit into cake dish drop the crumble on top and bake.  See? Simple!  Also this is a quick breakfast or dessert that you can make at the drop of a hat. You can whip this together in about 10 minutes, and bake for 30 minutes. Done.
