THE RECIPE

Gluten Free Peach and Cherry Quinoa Crumble

Showcase summer fruit in this guilt- and gluten-free dessert

Sometimes it is just too hot in the summer for a heavy, decadent dessert. This peach and cherry quinoa crumble is the perfect alternative — sweet and satisfying without being over-the-top. Peaches and cherries bake together with honey and coconut oil to form a warm, gooey base and then are topped with an unconventional mixture: Gina had the ingenious idea to use uncooked quinoa in the topping of this crumble, which not only makes the dessert gluten-free, but lends a delightfully crunchy texture. The quinoa comes together with almond flour, cinnamon, and vanilla to form a sweet, streusel-like topping in the classic crumble tradition. With its simple and healthy ingredients, you won’t feel guilty about indulging a little, or a lot, with this peach and cherry quinoa crumble.
