Vegan Peach Crumble, Sloppy Jonis, And Aztec Hot Chocolate
The other night, I was asking around for a great vegan peach cobbler recipe, but came up empty handed. I decided to make a quick little vegan peach crumble of my own design while I waited around for a perfect tried-and-true cobbler recipe to come along. I skipped coating my fresh peaches in sugar, because I love the natural sweetness of fruit, and simply made a buttery oat topping to crown them. Of course, you could always toss yours in 1/4 cup sugar if you prefer your desserts to be sweeter.
- 4 large peaches, sliced
- 3/4 cup quick oats
- 1/4 cup vegan butter, melted
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place peaches in a 2.5 quart oven-safe dish. In a medium bowl, add melted butter, quick oats, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and sea salt and gently stir until well-combined. Distribute oat mixture evenly over fresh peaches. Bake for 34-36 minutes or until oat crumble topping is browned. Enjoy!
Yesterday, I tested out a recipe from Hearty Vegan for Sloppy Jonis. These were by far the best “sloppy joes” I’ve ever tasted! Far better than a boxed mix, that’s for sure.
I whipped up the Aztec Hot Chocolate from Speed Vegan yesterday evening. Yeah, it’s like 100 degrees outside, but hot cocoa with cayenne? I’m all over that! The cocoa was delicious- rich, sweet, and definitely spicy. I can’t wait to make this my new holiday hot chocolate.
Well, I hope you have a great weekend! Maybe you can spend some time just relaxin’ and snackin’ like this guy in our walnut tree. Although, his methods may be a little rough on the toenails…
