Vegan Yogurt Parfait with Easy Stovetop Crumble

This is my favorite dessert lately, not too sweet.
Way too easy to make pie crumbs on the stove top
it only takes a few minutes.



1/2 C. flour or sorghum flour (or ground nuts or combo)
1 tsp.sugar (more to taste)
pinch salt
2-3 Tbsp. coconut oil or margarine

1-2 C. vegan yogurt or coconut cream with lemon juice and a
  little sugar and salt

1 C. or more fruit of choice (I like peaches or blueberries)

Toast flour in a dry pan for about 1 minute, stirring (do
medium or med-low heat). Add sugar and salt.
Stir one more minute, add oil/margarine and stir about until
it forms crumbs. Stir here and there for a couple of minutes,
making sure it doesn't burn until it looks nice and toasty.

Lay a Tbsp. or so in the bottoms of 4 cups. Add some fruit in
each(1/8 portion per cup),then 1/4 of the yogurt in each on
top of that,reserving a little bit for the tops. Next add the
rest of the fruit,then the rest of the crumb mixture, and then
a dab of the yogurt on each.
Makes 4
I definitely like it best with the crumbs still warm.

In the cover photo,which was taken from above in the kitchen of the
warehouse in LA I was living in at the time, we had a real pit going and
I was afraid they were going to drop me.
Pretty much the cute pitbulls in here make the book.
Don't burn your fingers making the smores..
Top stuff! Hahahahaha!
