Nutritious Strawberry breakfast Crumble (Gluten-Free)


With all the flavor and satisfaction of your traditional crumble, this delicious and nutrition-packed strawberry breakfast crumble is made with just 9 simple ingredients, including fiber-rich oats, almond butter, and antioxidant-rich strawberries to power up your day. Prep ahead for easy weekday lunches or enjoy for a lazy weekend brunch. Gluten-Free. Vegan option.


  • 2 lbs strawberries (Fresh or frozen), stems removed and halved

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 3 Tbsp Chia seeds

  • ¼ tsp salt, divided

  • 1 cup quick oats

  • ¼ cup almond butter

  • 3 Tbsp honey

  • ½ cup sliced almonds

  • ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut



  1. Preheat oven to 350F

  2. Add strawberries, lemon juice, chia seeds and half of the salt to a cast iron pan

  3. Meanwhile, combine oats, almond butter, honey, almonds, coconut and last of the salt in a medium bowl. Use a fork to combine ingredients well. You may need to get in there with your hands to full combine. Ingredients should be combined well with some big clumps remaining

  4. Add crumble topping to the strawberry mixture, covering the top

  5. Cover with foil and place in the oven on the middle rack. Bake for 15 minutes then remove the foil and bake an additional 15-25 minutes until strawberries are bubbling and crumble topping is golden brown.

  6. Remove and let cool for 5-10 minutes

  7. Serve warm, topped with plain or vanilla yogurt or coconut whip. 


Ingredient Swaps: Not a fan of strawberries? Or, tried it, loved it, but want a modified version for a change in routine? his breakfast crumble can take many forms! Below are some ideas for ingredient swaps to up your crumble game!

  • Fruit: There are so many other fruits that would also be delicious in this crumble! Some I’d love to try include blueberries, raspberries, pears, or apples (I’ve also got this breakfast apple crisp recipe if that combo sounds good to you!) And have you ever tried a peach/blackberry combo? It’s to die for! Berries can be fresh or frozen: both take the same 10 minutes of prep time!
  • Nut swap & nut free option: Swap the almonds for pecans or walnuts. I haven’t personally tried this, but if you’re looking for a nut-free option, I think pumpkin seeds or hemp hearts would work well! In this case, swap the almond butter for a seed butter like pumpkin butter or sunflower seed butter!

Make it Vegan: To make this nutritious breakfast strawberry crumble vegan, simply swap out the honey for maple syrup! Honey is an animal byproduct so if you’re strictly plant-based, maple syrup is a safe bet!

What Makes This Breakfast Crumble Gluten Free? Oats are naturally gluten free, but some can become cross-contaminated if they’re processed in a facility that also processes wheat. So if you’re celiac or adhere to a GF diet, be sure to check the package labelling: most will say “certified gluten free” or 100% gluten free!
