Summer is the season for fresh, ripe peaches, so stop by your local farmer’s market or grocery store and grab some to turn the sweet fruit into a delicious pecan peach crumble with a scoop of dairy-free ice cream.

In this recipe, simply mix together pecan, oats, and sugar and top it on warm, baked peaches and enjoy every spoonful with dairy-free vanilla ice cream for an easy plant-based dessert. This recipe is simple and children can partake at any step and learn how to create a healthier version of the desserts they love.

(The original recipe calls for butter but we use coconut oil instead to make it vegan.)

When you choose to eliminate dairy from your diet, you’re more likely to lower inflammation in your body caused by consuming animal products, like real dairy. So make this summer treat on repeat, dive in spoon first, and feel great about indulging in healthier treats.

Pecan Peach Crumble

Serves 4


  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 peaches, halved with the pit removed
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, softened but not liquid
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Arrange peaches cut-side up in a shallow glass baking dish.
  • In a medium bowl, use a fork or your fingers to mix together the pecans, butter, oats, oat flour, coconut sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt until a chunky crumble topping forms.
  • Distribute evenly between peaches, pressing gently to adhere the crumble to the peach flesh.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the top is golden. Store any leftovers in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
