Comfort Food: Peach & Blackberry Crumble


This staff-favorite dessert is warm, comforting and full of delicious fruit flavors. Venting the slow cooker while the crumble cooks prevents condensation from forming on the lid.


  • Oil for greasing (vegetable or avocado oil)
  • 5 cups sliced peaches, (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups blackberries, (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup rooibos tea, (brewed )
  • 2/3 cup Sucanat sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds (toasted)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 6 Tbs. unsalted butter (melted)


  1. dlB8.16-4267Lightly grease a 4-quart slow cooker’s ceramic crock insert.
  2. In a bowl, combine peaches, blackberries, vanilla and tea.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine Sucanat and cinnamon; sprinkle half over fruit and stir. Pour fruit mixture into slow cooker.
  4. To remaining Sucanat-cinnamon, add oats, oat flour, seeds, salt and butter; mix with a fork to form crumbs. If it seems too dry, stir in a little more melted butter. Sprinkle evenly over fruit.
  5. Cover slow cooker, venting slightly with a wooden spoon, and cook on low for 3-1/2–4 hours.
