Plus… it’s lightened-up, protein-ed up, AND fiber-ed up!
Healthy dessert?!? YUSSSS!

Happy Monday, you guys!! How was the weekend? Did you have the best Mother’s Day?!

Lemme tell you about mine…

I spent the entire morning explaining to a 5-year old why there isn’t a Day dedicated to kids. My answer was plain and simple, “Every day is Kid’s Day”.
Ooooh girrrrl! I had the wrong answer!

She started crying and demanding I call President Obama and TELL (not ask) him to dedicate a day to Kids. Her list of demands grew, asking that, “…all kids get a Barbie cake, Frozen powers… iPads for every kid in the entire world because every kid deserves to play games”… The mind of a Kindergartner. 😀

Later in the morning we went to my parent’s house and enjoyed this warm Strawberry Crumble for brunch, right after some bacon, eggs, and Mimosas. Me = Happy!

So now it’s Monday, and we very well know that all Mondays start with, “As of today, I’m on a diet”. Right?
Due to that reality, I wanted to share this lightened up sweetness with you because dessert. Trust me, it won’t be too long before you reach for something to calm down that sweet tooth.

This crumble is just a simple and sincere crumble. It starts with juicy strawberries, some sweet brown sugar, and a bit of butter. It’s topped with oats, cinnamon, almond flour, and baked to a crisp. That is, a crisp topping and a warm and juicy filling. AND? 140 calories per serving. AMEN to that!

Honestly? The sight of this sweet cake makes me want to make it again today and have it all to myself. 6 delicious servings just for me… but that would probably mess with my Monday diet plans. Damn serving suggestions!

    Not really a crumble or crisp. Not tasty either – it just doesn’t work. Save your calories for a small portion of something good.

  2. I tried this recipe and it was easy to follow and very tasty. The only thing that puzzles me why the author added a baking powder ingredient to the crumble mix. It won’t work with rolled oats or almond flour ( which is just ground almonds) so why add it?

  3. Awesome recipe and easy to follow. Just made it today and it came out super. I had coconut flakes in the pantry so I toasted them and added them to the crumble. I’m a coconut fan. Seems like enough crumble to me but maybe next time I would increase it 1.5x.

  4. In Turkey, there is a day for children. Children play games. Moreover, they come from different countries. We wait. Crumble also looks delicious 🙂 I wrote a translation, I hope it is not wrong.

    Hi this looks delightful but was wondering about the inclusion of the all purpose flour. Is there a substitute I could use in lieu of that? tyia

    1. I used a tablespoon of oat ground up Oats and a heaped tablespoon of arrowroot powder, though any starch would do for the latter. I also ended up doubling the crumb topping because it was pretty sparse when using an 8″ square pan.

  6. Just returned from a trip to the pick-’em-yourself strawberry farm. These ultra-fresh strawberries will soon be in a crumble!

    This looks crazy good! I can’t believe it’s healthy. But I would probably eat the whole thing, so maybe not so healthy then …

    Haha, oh boy, I am sure I will be dealing with that next year with my daughter. Earlier this year I explained what a “food baby” was to my little girl and now she thinks she has babies in her tummy, therefore Mother’s Day was a day for her, too! This crumble though… I must have it in my life!

    I love a good fruity crumble and haven’t had strawberry in a long time. This looks so good and I love that it’s healthier too – this is definitely on my “must make” list.
