Healthy Peach and Blueberry Crumble

Who would’ve ever thought that peaches and blueberries would come together and create wonderful flavor.

Healthy Peach Blueberry Crumble I find the most challenging thing to do in cooking and baking is to take comfort food or really unhealthy desserts and make them healthy but without a loss of flavor. This is not always easy to do and may require a dish  to be made several times before getting it right, but it is possible. I am not the healthiest person on the planet. I am a very healthy eater just not consistently. I believe in eating burgers and fries every now and then. However,  I am aware of healthy lifestyle changes. One of the biggest healthy lifestyle changes that I have and continue to try to implement is eliminating white sugar and white flour. I have gotten so good with this change that I feel bad, physically and mentally, anytime I eat white bread or white pasta. Sometimes you don’t have a choice depending on where you are and the options that are available and that is okay. However, I don’t buy those things at the grocery store nor will you find it in my house. If you do, it is for a specific and good reason. In my effort to try to cut or keep at a very low-level the amount of white sugar I intake in my regular diet, I try to replace sugar with honey, agave, or stevia. I did just that in this Peach and Blueberry Crumble dessert.

I just wanted to give it enough sweetness that will allow the natural sweetness of the peaches and blueberry to come out. The crumble, that is the best part, I used rolled oats and Grape Nuts! That’s right. I used Grape Nuts the cereal for some extra crunch and texture. There is a little flour but its only about 1/4 cup to bind it all together. To give the crumble some sweetness I used 2 packets of pure can sugar. I was really nervous about it because I didn’t know how the combination of peaches and blueberries would mix together and I didn’t know how the Grape Nuts would come out but it all came out very, very good! This is the best healthiest dessert I have ever made so far. If you put this crumble in front of a kid or someone who really likes sweets, I promise you they won’t know the difference. Instead of topping the crumble off with ice cream, use frozen Greek yogurt like I did. I’m telling you, you will find a new appreciation for eating healthy.
