You know what is weird?
Having to buy fruit at the market when I had free access to it all summer. If I was craving a peach, it was as simple as stepping out into the backyard and picking a peach off the tree. There is nothing quite like picking fresh fruit off a tree and eating it right then and there.
Mmm.... just thinking about that warm, sweet, juicy, fresh peach is making me really upset that I now have to pay for not as warm, sweet, juicy fresh peaches.
Something I did realize when I was purchasing the peaches was how I never really bake anything "healthy" with fruit. In fact, it seems that I've only used them to make pies and pastries this summer. So I decided this time that I should make a healthy version of a peach crumble, cobbler, crisp... whatever you want to call it. What actually makes this crumble good for you is this incredibility healthy cereal mix that I put into it.
It's called Holy Crap and it is probably the healthiest cereal you will ever eat. This wonder cereal contains the magical chia seed, hulled hemp hearts, buckwheat, cranberries, raisins, apple bits and cinnamon. And what's even better is that it's all organic and made in BC Canada!
Anyway, I have this cereal in the morning with yogurt sometimes and thought I would try and add it into this peach crumble. It will be the most delicious and healthy peach crumble you will ever make. Well, that is if you decide to exclude the ice cream. But it's so healthy.... so you might as well add the ice cream to balance it out.
Enjoy this healthy peach crumble.
