Description

Mini strawberry crumbles, with a sweet and juicy berry filling and buttery, brown sugar crumble topping. Simple to make, always delicious, and perfect for Summer. Gluten-free and vegan-friendly.


Ingredients

Scale

Strawberry Filling

  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 23 tsp fresh lemon juice, or to taste
  • 2 tsp arrowroot starch, optional but recommended ¹

Oat Crumble Topping

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour ²
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • pinch fine sea salt
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened ³

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375℉.
  2. Prep the filling: In a medium mixing bowl, toss together the strawberries, sugar, arrowroot starch, and lemon juice. Set aside.
  3. Make the crumble topping: In a small mixing bowl, stir together the oats, flour, brown sugar, and salt until combined.
  4. Add the butter, and use a pastry blender or your fingers to cut the butter into the dry ingredients. Continue until the butter is completely incorporated, and the mixture comes together into a chunky crumb.
  5. Divide the strawberry mixture between 4 oven-safe ramekins. Top with the crumble topping, pressing it down gently into the filling.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the crumble topping is golden brown and the berry juices begin to bubble up around the edges.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
  8. Serve warm with fresh whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream and/or a dusting of powdered sugar. Enjoy!!


Notes

  • ¹ Arrowroot starch is my favorite thickener for pie and crumble fillings. You can also use cornstarch or tapioca flour. Or, if you don’t mind a juicier crumble, feel free to skip it.
  • ² Make it gluten-free: use an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend such as Bob’s Red Mill or King Arthur Flour (measuring by weight), and be sure the oats are also certified gluten-free. Oat flour or almond flour would also likely work.
  • ³ For a vegan crumble, substitute vegan butter (such as Earth Balance) or room-temperature unrefined coconut oil.
