Walnut Oat Date Crumble

by Anne Paddock

When I started making baked apples with a crumble made of oats, walnuts, dates, almond butter, and cinnamon, I often had leftover crumble that tasted delicious sprinkled over oatmeal, muesli, and cereal. Then I found myself making the crumble in bulk and keeping it in an airtight container in the refrigerator because I used it so often.

Realizing that I was on to something, I then made variations (i.e. omitted the cinnamon and add dark chocolate chips) and then found myself with two different types of crumble always in my refrigerator, one with a cinnamon emphasis and the other filled with dark chocolate chips.

The Walnut Oat Date Crumble (with or without chocolate chips) is delicious and super easy to make. The only equipment needed is a small food processor (a large one will also work) that quickly blends the ingredients together.

Walnut Oat Date Crumble

Ingredients:

  • 6 pitted Medjool dates
  • 3/4 cup whole grain oats
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon (or omit the cinnamon and use 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips)

Directions:

Place the oats, walnuts, dates, almond butter, and cinnamon in the food processor and blend until pulverized (about 30 seconds).

For the chocolate chip version, place the oats, walnuts, dates, and almond butter in the food processor and blend until pulverized (about 30 seconds). Stir in the chocolate chips.

Store the crumble in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Sprinkle over hot oatmeal, overnight oats, any hot or cold cereal, and muesli.
