Looking for a summery vegan dessert? Crisps are the perfect choice. Plus it’s a perfect excuse to melt a little scoop of your favorite dairy-free ice cream on top.
I almost called this a cobbler, but then I wondered if that was right, so I did some googling.
A cobbler is a sweet or savory filling topped with a batter or dough of some kind and then baked.
A crisp or crumble is usually a fruit base covered in a streusel-like topping and baked until crispy.
This baby is definitely a crisp. A delicious easy-to-make crisp. I made it using the rhubarb from our first CSA of 2016, a sad-looking green apple, and some sad farmers market strawberries.
I probably could have called this Sad Fruit Crisp, but the rhubarb was really happy, so I didn’t.
Tip 💡 Use the fruit you already have • plums, mangos, banana, blueberries, apricots, or cherries would be 😋
After chopping the fruit I cooked everything down with a little mineral-rich coconut sugar until a thick preserve-like compote formed. The smell was amazing!
While that magic simmered on the stove I preheated the oven and made the oat topping. All you need for a perfect crispy top is some old-fashioned rolled oats, coconut oil, coconut sugar, a little flour, and baking soda.
When the fruit is ready mix it with some oats and pour into a greased 8×8 pan, cover with topping, and bake for 30 minutes.
It’s absolutely fantastic a few minutes out of the oven, but also tastes good cold. This crisp will be good for up to a week stored covered in the fridge, but of course tastes best within the first few days.
