Vegan Nutty Peach Crisp

Author Notes: It's a healthier, vegan take on the classic peach crisp. Fat content is reduced, nuts are added, and oats take the place of flour! Oh, and there's alcohol. Because we all love a warm, boozy dessert.Christina

Serves 4

The filling

  • 6 Ripe Peaches
  • 1 tablespoon Real Maple Syrup
  • 1 ounce Brandy or Spiced Rum (optional)

The topping

  • 3/4 cup Old-fashioned Rolled Oats, GF if necessary
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Pecans
  • 1 ounce Brandy or Spiced Rum (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray a glass pie plate, or 8×8 glass dish, with vegan cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, toss sliced peaches with syrup and brandy, if using. Spread into a layer in the pie plate.
  3. In the same bowl (less dishes, y’all!), mix the topping ingredients together well. Spread into pie plate, to completely cover the peaches.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes at either the top or middle rack position. Remove from oven and let cool, allowing the juices to thicken, for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Scoop into serving bowls, and top with coconut whipped cream, soy or almond vanilla ice cream, or eat it as is!
