Peaches, Cobblers, and Crumbles…Oh, My!
Is there anything better than a juicy, fresh peach in the summertime? I mean I can taste them just thinking about it. So, obviously, the answer is no. Unless you’re making these Peach Cobbler Crumble Bars! Honestly, I can’t believe I haven’t made this recipe yet. After all, with recipes like my Berrylicious Baked Oats, Cherry Coconut Bliss Bites, Strawberry Chocolate Parfaits, and more, it’s clear my love for fruit is strong. This is especially true when it’s in-season. That being said, you guys need to go make this peach cobbler crumble bars like right now! No really, I’m not kidding.
They’re the perfect combination of everything you love about cobblers combined with all the ease and deliciousness of a crumble. Even better, I cut them into handheld bars to make your life even easier. Now, not only can you stuff your face with a tasty snack, you can also hold onto your coffee or wrestle a toddler. Or, is that just me?
Either way, you don’t want to miss out! So, let’s get baking!
Vegan Peach Cobbler Ingredients
Unlike typical recipes that are loaded with dairy and added sugars, these vegan Peach Cobbler Crumble Bars are made with natural ingredients and low in sugar for a better-for-you dessert you’ll love! To get started, gather the ingredients or any of their alternatives listed below.
- Flaxseed – When combined with water, flaxseed acts as an egg substitute. However, you could also use chia seeds. Or, if you aren’t following a vegan diet, regular eggs work just as well.
- Coconut Oil – If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, it can technically be swapped out for unsweetened applesauce. Just keep in mind that doing so would remove all of the fat from the recipe and a lot of the flavor and satisfaction.
- Sugar – For this recipe, I used brown sugar, but coconut sugar or Lakanto’s brown monk fruit sweetener (code: kellyk) would work as well!
- Oat Flour – Oat flour is naturally gluten-free but can easily be replaced with all-purpose flour or a gluten-free 1:1 baking flour. You can even use almond flour if you combine it with buckwheat or spelt flour.
- Protein Powder – In order not to overpower the other flavors, I recommend using a vanilla protein powder. Nuzest is my personal favorite (code: thekellykathleen), but you do you.
- Cinnamon – Feel free to add as little or as much cinnamon as you like. Or, try using additional spices such as allspice or nutmeg, too.
- Peaches – If you don’t have peaches, try using nectarines, berries, or even mango. Personally, I think a mango and coconut situation would be dreamy.
Optional Ingredient Add-Ins
Obviously, these gluten-free peach cobbler crumble bars are perfection all on their own. I wouldn’t give you anything less, but if you want to get truly wild in the kitchen, you can add even more tasty ingredients to this recipe. That’s right, I said it! Check out my suggestions below, or use your favorites!
- Maca Powder – If you want to make these peach cobbler crumble bars even more nutritious, add a scoop of maca powder for extra vitamins, protein, and fiber.
- Lavender – In my opinion, a touch of lavender pairs heavenly with fruit.
- Coconut Flakes – For a crunchy texture, I like to sprinkle coconut flakes both in the batter and on top of these bars.
- White Chocolate Chips – A sprinkling of white chocolate chips creates a peaches and cream situation that is divine! Of course, you can use any chocolate you like best. It all tastes great!
- Pistachios or Chopped Nuts – For a hint of salt, extra texture, and healthy fats, add a handful of two of your favorite nuts.
- Ice Cream – What’s a cobbler without ice cream? I love adding a scoop of vanilla on top of these bars when they’re fresh out of the oven!
How to Make Vegan Peach Cobbler Crumble Bars
As always, these gluten-free peach cobbler crumble bars are super easy to make. To make sure to follow the steps below, just follow my tips and tricks below!
- Be sure to combine your flaxseeds and water in a separate bowl, and let the mixture sit for at least 10 minutes. Otherwise, they won’t form a sticky, egg-like texture.
- Don’t mix your peaches into the batter until it is well mixed. When ready, gently fold them in to avoid breaking them into pieces.
- Let the bars cool completely before adding the extra sugar or removing them from the pans. Otherwise, they might crumble! (Haha, get it?)
Tools You’ll Need
- A mini loaf baking tin or a regular loaf tin
- 2 medium-sized bowls or one large bowl and an electric mixer
- A whisk or mixing spoon
- A cutting board and knife
How Should I Store Vegan Peach Cobbler Crumble Bars?
For the best results, I recommend storing these peach cobbler crumble bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 or 5 days. Or, if you want to keep them fresh even longer, individually wrap each bar, and pop them in the freezer for up to 9 months!
How to Pick the Best Peaches
Obviously, we want the best peaches for this recipe. So, I’ve got you covered with pro peach picking tips to ensure your cobbler crumble bars are absolutely decadent. You’re welcome.
