Pumpkin Crumble

This simple, delicious Pumpkin Crumble dessert is such an easy recipe, you will be making it again and again!

When I think of fall, all things pumpkin come to mind. There are pumpkin decorations in our home and pumpkin recipes are on repeat around here too! Pumpkin brings up all the cozy, comforting feelings and I really can’t get enough of it!

Yup, I am one of those people that eagerly await the arrival of pumpkin spice lattes at cafes. I guess that makes me basic, but I don’t care. Its so good and makes me so happy!

Today, I am so happy to share with you my Pumpkin Crumble! It’s an easy way to get that pumpkin pie goodness without the hassle of actually making any pie crust! Crumbles are hits around here and this pumpkin one is no exception!

A healthier dessert

Crumbles, I find, are a bit healthier than pies as they don’t have as much flour in them. And with the use of pumpkin which is quite healthy, I feel a little bit better about eating it. I wouldn’t call it healthy though. It is definitely a treat as there is still a good amount of sugar and butter in this dessert.

I like to make this indulgent (i.e. with butter and sugar as stated in the recipe) when serving it to guests but there are ways it can be made a bit healthier too.

Some easy swaps to make this a bit better for you:

  • use maple syrup instead of sugar in the filling (not in the crumble though as it will get too wet)
  • replace the melted butter with melted coconut oil in the recipe (both in the filling and in the crumble)

How to make Pumpkin Crumble

To make this dessert, I use:

For the pumpkin filling:

  • 3 cups pumpkin puree
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin spice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the crumble topping:

  • 1/2 cup each flour, oats, melted butter and brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Putting the dessert together is really easy to do. Simply mix the filling ingredients in a bowl and pour it into your baking dish. Then mix the crumble ingredients together and sprinkle it over top. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes and voila!

See? I told you it was easy!

I hope you enjoy this lovely pumpkin dessert! Bon appetit!
