Local Peachy Goodness!
There is just something about sitting down and enjoying a warm fruit crumble fresh out of the oven that makes me feel so homey and comforted. I guess that is why they call it comfort food, right?
Peaches have always been one of my favorite fruits. Since they are on the higher side of carbs, I don’t eat them as much as I used to but they are still a special treat I enjoy from time to time.
So I like to find ways to enjoy them. Since they are higher carb, when I do eat them I try to stay within the low fat and gluten free zone.
If you follow the Trim Healthy Mama diet and follow me here this recipe would make your perfect “E” dessert! It is a great way to balance some meals and treats if you do choose to eat more carbs.
I’ve talked about it before how we are super lucky to live in North Central Arkansas surrounded by lots of yummy fruit farms and how our family loves supporting these farmers.
Just knowing where and how our fruit is grown is great, but the added fact that our purchases are helping these other local families support themselves makes the fruit taste even more amazing!
This year we were blessed by some trips to a peach and nectarine farm in Lamar, Arkansas just a short 20 minute drive from our home. We picked serval bushels both peaches and nectarines each time we visited.
They are super yummy fresh straight from the branches, but I took the time to make some homemade sugar free peach butter and to freeze some slices for treats later, like this Peach Crumble.
Since these are individual portions you’ll only need a small amount of fresh peaches per crumble, but for the total recipe, which would make three individual crumbles, you’ll need a total of three cups of peaches.
Now, if you don’t have fresh local peaches stashed away in your freezer, don’t worry, you can grab a bag of frozen peach or nectarine slices from the grocery store and they will work nicely too.
What Do You Need For Individual Peach Crumbles?
I like making desserts in individual portions because it is so easy to over do it on sweets in our family. Yes, we mostly make sugar free healthier desserts, but even with those we can get carried away and unwanted calories or carbs can add up fast!
So when it comes to keeping our portions under control making recipes in individual portions is a huge help. It is also a great way to make these types of desserts if you are the only one following a special diet. This way you can have your dessert but not be stuck with tons of excess to eat your way through.
I mean, not that it would be horrible eating tons of dessert, but I know it is good to avoid that when needed!
Before we get into the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe I wanted to share about the baking dishes I use. When I make individual desserts I like to use my little white baking dishes that I’ve had for years.
These were given to me by my mom and I’ve used them so many times over the last ten years. But if you can’t find little shallow dishes like mine you could use any oven proof ramakins that will hold at least 1 and 1/2 cups of ingredients.
You can check out these types of small dishes on Amazon if you are in the market for some or I’ve seen them at WalMart to in there housewares department.
Once you have your individual baking dishes it is time to fill them with yumminess and get them baked. After all, the sooner we quit talking and get to baking the sooner we can eat them!
Here’s The Ingredients You’ll Need:
- sliced peaches
- low carb sweetener
- old fashion oats
- oat flour
- egg whites
- Xanthan Gum
As you can see it’s all pretty basic ingredients in this Peach Crumble and the steps for making the recipe are just as easy as shopping for them in your local grocery store. The only ingredient you may not be familiar with is Xanthan Gum.
It is just a type of thickener used in place of flour or corn starch and it is found on many baking aisle throughout the United States now. You can substitute Glucomanna (aka Glucci for short) or any other low carb or THM approved thickener if you wish.
Mix it Up and Bake, It’s as Easy as That!
Now that we’ve went over the things you’ll need for this recipe, it’s time to go through the steps for making these Individual Peach Crumbles.
I’m not going to tell you how easy they are because I’m sure you’re tired of hearing me say that by now, so I’ll just show you how fast these are ready to eat.
For the filling add the peaches, cinnamon, sweetener, water, and Xanthan Gum to a bowl and stir well. Let the mixture sit and the flavor meld together for 15 minutes.
While the peaches are soaking up up all that goodness it is time to make the low fat and gluten free oat crumble for the topping.
Add the oats and oat flour to a mixing bowl with the sweetener and cinnamon and stir well. Next you’ll need to incorporate your wet ingredients.
After mixing in the egg whites and butter, use your clean hands to mix all the ingredients together until they come together into a crumbly texture. You can use a fork if you’re not into using your hands, like I do!
Now, you’re ready for the fun stuff. In the next to last step, divide the peaches between the three individual baking dishes, top each with an equal portion of the oat topping, and then baking until golden brown.
You can can serve this piping hot straight out of the oven or if you want to store them for later let them cool completely then wrap each one in plastic wrap and place in the fridge.
They will last up to one week stored away unless you freeze them, but really let’s be serious for a moment. Who could wait that long to dig into this yumminess, right?
