July 2nd, 2010

This time of year is when stone fruits have finally become sweet, sun baked, and worth the buy. The ultimate way of eating them has to be biting into their delicate skin and letting the juice run down your cheeks – carefree is just the right mood for summer. But here’s a more dinner table-friendly approach to these pink and orange beauties, one that doesn’t involve staining all your napkins. The recipe is short, quick, and fuss-free, where the flavours of the peaches and nectarines are simply framed by the moist and crunchy crumble.

Raw Peach and Nectarine Crumble
2 peaches or nectarines – sliced
1/4 cup dates – pitted (you can also add raisins and/or dried cranberries to make up the 1/4 cup total)
1/4 cup pecans
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground ginger – optional

In a food processor, pulse the dates, pecans, and coconut oil until lightly chopped, but not smooth. Place the sliced peaches/nectarines into a plate and sprinkle with the crumble.

    Incredible…and not an ounce of processed sugar. If it tastes 1/2 as good as it looks, it should be quite the tasty treat. Every restaurant should include these types of natural desserts on their menus.

    I made this for my fiance tonight, and we both loved it. Also, coconut oil is a medium-chain fat, and so is great for losing weight. He’s working on a few pounds, so I use as much of it as I can. Thanks so much for this recipe!

  • Golubka says:

    Coco: Thank you! Stone fruit are one of the best things about this season.

    Gayle-force: SO glad you liked it! Thanks so much for letting us know.
