It is mine and Adam’s anniversary this week- 4 years married. That’s pretty crazy. I made some peach squares to celebrate. Although we are going out for a nice dinner, we’ll be sure to save some room for these vegan treats afterwards. And we will be topping them with some vanilla vegan ice cream, cause you always need ice cream when celebrating!
With peach season comes so many delicious recipes, it’s hard to know what ones to start with. You start your morning with a fruity-peachy smoothie and oatmeal topped with peaches. By lunchtime you’ll probably need a few of these peach squares and then by dinner time you’ll need a few more. See that was easy. I basically just meal planned your day for you.
These peach crumble bars (as I also like to call them) are kind of a cross between a date square and peach crumble. They stay solid enough to remain a bar (after a little time in the freezer), taking away that “crumble” effect a classic peach crumble would have. Also, how many times do you think I can say crumble in this paragraph?!
here are a few reasons why I love these peach squares, so listen up!
- It tastes so similar to traditional peach crisp, but you don’t need a spoon to enjoy it. Eating food with your hands is where it’s at, right?!
- It is Picky Husband Approved. He’s not normally a huge peach fan. But he ate multiple of these squares in one sitting without taking a breath, so maybe he’s changed his mind about peaches…
- If you have an excess of peaches this is a perfect ready to serve dessert. You can make these a few days in advance and leave them in a sealed container in the freezer. Let them thaw, then serve them up with ice cream.
- Fruit plus granola is my jam, so this is basically my perfect combo- and it just might be yours too!
The best part about this vegan snack is that I bought my peaches just down the road from the cutest little fam. And they were truly the best peaches I’ve ever had. I love living here in the Okanagan, where there is just so much delicious summer produce. I may be biased, but it’s a pretty magical place. But enough about that. You need to get your butt to the market and get some peaches, and then make these yummy little bars.
