These vegan crisps and crumbles will be some of the best you’ve ever tried! Crisps and crumbles both consist of sweet baked fruits, but the difference between the two lies in their names. Crisps have a crispy topping and usually contain oats, while crumbles have a crumbly topping that consists of flour, sugar, and fat (in our case, oil or vegan butter). Cooked fruit is so delightful because it becomes sweet and caramelized. Combined with the crispy or crumbly sweet topping, vegan crisps and crumbles make such a fabulous dessert for the holidays. They are great for feeding a crowd and are not very complex to make, so you won’t need to stress over it too much. Your guests will adore these vegan crisps and crumbles!

It’s all up to you! Whatever you choose, you have to try making this almond peach crisp –– it will definitely be a crowd pleaser at any family holiday party!
