Strawberry Crumble – Warm and nutty dessert combined with sweet strawberries and a crisp crumble topping.
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.
HOW TO MAKE A STRAWBERRY CRUMBLE
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!
Let’s just go and make this crumble with any sort of summer berries that you like because dessert is always our comfort.
