No Patience Peach Crumble

August 5th, 2013 · Lisa · raw, Recipes, Sweet · Comments

Even though summer days are long and perfect for lazy, lackadaisical pursuits, they seem to maintain an ability to slip away like a secret agent/ninja/polkaroo. Before you’ve even worked in your flip flops, you’re turning the calendar pages over to August. August!?!

I’m trying my very best this year to make time to visit the farmers market, read books in the park and walk around this glorious city – while it still sparkles in the sunshine (as opposed to glittering under a blanket of snow). Luckily there are a lot of rewards that come from these priorities – freckles, fresh air and peaches.

Ontario peaches have definitely arrived. At the Brick works market this weekend, beautiful baskets full of peaches lined every other stall. I sang to myself, “peaches for me, peaches for you”, as I split a basket with Nicole and went home ready to enjoy a big juicy, garnet beauty

But these days, I have no time for crusts, pre-baking and waiting for a piping-hot peach to cool down. So I took all my favourite parts of a classic crumble and created a no-wait variation. Raw, simple, sweet…and ready in seconds.

No Patience Peach Crumble


  • 2 ripe peaches, sliced
  • 2 TBSP raw walnuts
  • 2 TBSP rolled oats
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 2 frozen bananas


  1. Arrange the sliced peaches between two plates.
  2. In a food processor, combine the walnuts, oats, dates, salt and cinnamon. Pulse until well-combined. The mixture should begin to clump together.
  3. Drizzle the crumble onto of the peach slices.
  4. In a food processor, blend the frozen banana until a soft-serve texture is achieved (about 3-5 minutes). Scoop the banana ice cream onto the crumble.
  5. Serve immediately.

If I had my little way I’d eat peaches everyday. xo

    Beautiful! I almost made something similar this morning when I was thinking about what to do with my half of the basket, but ended up with peach salsa instead. But, it turns out I have two left, which is perfect for this recipe! Double win.
