Protein Peach Crumble Squares

imageI found some peaches turning in my fruit bowl on Friday so I made a quick protein peach crumble out of them, using my favourite type of flour – coconut flour. This flour is just incredible and it comes from a company called Sukrin which makes sugar-free and gluten-free products from natural ingredients – so you won’t find any of those nasty chemicals in your food. But, their products also have far less carbs than most sugar-free products on the market.

The main thing I love about this coconut flour is that it is low in sugar and carbs, but high in healthy fats and fibre too. But like most coconut products, it can have a laxative effect, so maybe don’t dive straight in to a whole batch of these protein peach crumble squares, if it’s your first time using coconut flour 😉

I always get asked if the coconut flour gives off a coconut taste and honestly, I don’t think it does, although I could just be that used to it I don’t notice it any more. It does however, give off a beautiful aroma when cooking. However, I will say that the only tricky thing with coconut flour is that it does require quite a lot of liquid for baked goods. But, when you get used to working with coconut flour, it will be a dawdle to use.

Like, when I made this crumble for example; I came up with this crumble recipe this time last year and fell in love with it, it was just so easy to make and a lot healthier than using plain flour, which doesn’t agree with my sensitive stomach anyway.

To make the filling for the crumble I stumbled across this blog while making a quick Google search and then adapted the whole recipe to suit me – although, mine weren’t beautifully photographed like hers were (it was harder than it looked).

Ingredients: Crumble

  • 125g Rolled Oats
  • 45g Sukrin Coconut Flour
  • 25g Coconut Sugar
  • 15g Cookies n Cream Protein Powder or Vanilla
  • 2 tbps Ground Cinnamon
  • 25g Kerrygold Butter (cold)
  • 60g Apple Sauce/Purée
  • 30g Roughly crushed Pecans

Directions 

  • Firstly, you will need to pre-heat an oven to 185c
  • Now, Split the rolled oat measurement in half and blend in a food processor until the oats turn into a flour, then place in a mixing bowl with the other dry ingredients and combine.
  • Next add in the butter and apple sauce and using your hands, rub the ingredients together until you have pea-sized crumbs – this will take some time.
  • Now remove half the mixture to another bowl with the crushed pecans and pop the other half into a grease-proof pan;  gently press the crumble with the back of a spoon until it is evenly flat  and pop into the oven for 15 minutes.

Ingredients: Filling

  • 2 medium sized peaches (280g)
  • 1 Large Free Range Egg
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Sugar
  • 15g Cookies n Cream Protein Powder or Vanilla

Directions 

  • When you are waiting for the base to cook, you can start on the filling
  • Roughly chop your peaches into small chunks, when you’re done, crack an egg into a separate bowl and add in the coconut sugar and protein powder – whisk the ingredients until the mixture is smooth, then fold the peaches into the mixture until completely covered.
  • When your base is cooked, add the filling and  top with the other half of the crumble mixture and cook for a further 15 minutes.
  • Leave the crumble to cool completely and pop into the fridge for a few hours before cutting into squares.

You can eat this protein peach crumble with either coconut cream, light whipped cream, greek yoghurt or even eat is as cereal with milk.
