About this recipe
I love crumbles. They are the easiest thing in the world to make, and the good thing is that you can serve them as dessert or as breakfast; it all depends on the amount of sugar you put in.
This vegan crumble is the perfect choice for those who follow a vegan diet and those who simply want to explore delicious and healthy alternatives in their desserts.
What is a crumble?
A crumble is a dessert consisting of a layer of fruit cooked in the bottom of a bowl and covered with a crunchy mixture made of flour, butter, and sugar.
The word “crumble” comes from English and means “to crumble” or “to crumble,” referring to the uneven, crunchy texture of the topping that forms when the dessert is baked.
It is usually served hot, alone, or with ice cream or whipped cream. The contrast between the warm fruit and the crunchy topping makes the crumble a popular and comforting dessert.

That’s why I tell you that you can serve it for breakfast or dessert. For the photo, I served it with vanilla yogurt, but you could also serve it with ice cream.
