Strawberry Tahini Crisp w/ Coconut Crème

This strawberry crisp is a classic with a twist. It’s vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free and oil free as it uses tahini in place of oil to hold the topping ingredients together, which adds a whole other dimension of flavour that complements the sweetness of the strawberries. It’s very lightly sweetened with maple syrup, as the ripe strawberries do most of the work in that department and served with a fresh cold coconut tahini crème to contrast the warm strawberry fillong and crisp almond oat and tahini topping.
