Peach crumble is a dessert made with fresh or canned peaches, topped with a mixture of butter, flour, oats and sugar. The name comes from the texture of the topping. It’s sweet and crumbly. As with any crumble or crisp recipe, they’re usually loaded with sugar and calories. And you definitely shouldn’t eat them for breakfast. Now I’m going to ask you to throw all that out the window. There is a way to make a peach crumble that is high protein, has great macros and is balanced enough to have the first meal of the day.


The only sweetener in the peaches is stevia and the topping has one tablespoon of maple syrup. If you’d prefer to use a sugar free maple syrup, I recommend the Choc Zero brand. It is the best on the market. If you use this instead of traditional maple syrup, feel free to use this as the sweetener for the peaches as well! The maple syrup gets added to the topping which consists of quick cooking oats, vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, water and pinch of salt. The peaches also add sweetness once they’re cooked. They break dow and mix with the lemon juice and corn starch to create that signature “goo.” No need to preheat the oven. The microwave does all the cooking in two minutes. Don’t worry, the texture comes out just as if it were baked.


I use Clean Simple Eats vanilla protein powder for this recipe. Each serving is 20 grams of protein. This brand has the best flavor in my opinion. If you’ve tried incorporating protein powder in recipes, you know it can make or break the dish. Don’t go for a cheap brand you find at the store. Your protein powder needs to taste good if you want the dish to taste good. Use my code LAURENBOWER to save 10% at checkout.
