Cherry season is here! The round red fruits are not only sweet and tasty, they are als pretty healthy. They have a water content of around 80 percent, which makes them a perfect, hydrating snack during those hot summer months. Cherries are also rich in several vitamins and minerals. They are especially a good source for vitamin C and potassium as well as dietary fiber.

Ever wondered why cherries are red? The small stone fruits are bursting with an antioxidant called anthocyanin, which is also found in other red-ish to blue-ish fruits and vegetables. This phytochemical seems to not only have antioxidant but also anti-inflammatory properties.

With all these reasons for eating more cherries, we decided to show you a tasty way off adding them to your diet. This vegan cherry crumble is very easy to make, and you only need seven ingredients for the entire recipe.

Cherries work great alongside almonds which are a great source of healthy fats and proteins. So we decided to add them to the crumble topping together with rolled oats, which are incredibly nutritious as well. If you use gluten-free oats this entire recipe is actually gluten-free.

Instead of processed sugar we opted for a more natural sweetener: Maple syrup. It does not only add flavour but also plenty of nutrients, including zinc, manganese and calcium. Last but not least, there is coconut oil to make the topping extra crunchy. Enjoy straight from the oven or even cold with a dollop of coconut yogurt.

Then this blog is for you.
