Welcome back! Did anyone make a pie this week? In case you missed this post, I am sharing some of my favorite blueberry recipes this week. Up next…
Blueberry Peach Crisp
Sweet blueberries and fresh peaches topped with a golden oatmeal crisp. This blueberry peach crisp is perfectly in season.
Fruit crisps are so easy to make. It’s hardly any time at all to put it all together. The longest part is the baking, and that’s hands off, so you can multi-task all you want. Or just sit with a cup of coffee and relax. 🙂 This crisp is excellent with just blueberries, but peaches are in season too! Blueberry and peach compliment each other well. The farmers market is a highlight for me and my kids. They like the kettlecorn, but I try to stick to the fruits and vegetables. Nothing like home grown, fresh local food!!
This recipe makes a 9×13 pan full of deliciousness, but if that’s too much it can easily be cut in half and done in an 8×8.
First, gather your ingredients: Peaches, blueberries, sugar, brown sugar, flour, butter, oats.
Did you notice the oats? Yes, this recipe is good for you! You got yer whole grain, dairy, fruit… hey, it may be a long shot but I’m clinging to it. 😉 It probably would be much better for you without the sugar. But hey, everything in moderation. This is my motto.
Slice the peaches, and place them in the dish. Feel free to peel the peaches if you so desire, but I didn’t and it was just fine. Nobody noticed. Then add the blueberries.
Sprinkle the top with 3/4 cup sugar, and the flour. Give it a good stir and level out the fruit again.
To make the “crisp”, cut the butter into pieces and place in a medium sized bowl.
Add the oats, brown sugar and flour and mix together well. I find it’s easiest to just use your hands. My kids love helping with this part. So if you don’t want to get your hands dirty, let them help!
Once that is all combined, sprinkle it over the top of the fruit in an even layer.
Who wants to dig in??
We love to eat ours with vanilla ice cream, but honestly it doesn’t need a single add on, it is so good as is.
You can make this crisp with apples, cherries, peaches, or any other fruit you like.
You can also use frozen fruit instead of fresh. Here’s how to freeze produce.
Blueberry Peach Crisp
- 1 1/2 cup fresh sliced peaches
- 1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup + 2 Tbs flour and 1 1/2 cups for topping
- 2 sticks of butter cut into pieces
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350.
Place peaches and blueberries in a 9x13 inch pan.
Sprinkle sugar on top of fruit.
Sprinkle 1/4 cup + 2 Tbs flour over fruit.
Stir until fruit is coated, then level out again.
For the topping, combine butter, remaining 1 1/2 cups flour, brown sugar and rolled oats together. It's best to mix it with your hands.
Sprinkle over fruit mixture.
Bake 35-40 minutes, edges will bubble.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
Want to make this in the winter? You can substitute frozen fruit. It may need to bake a little longer.
