A Healthier Peach Blueberry Crisp
If you’re looking for a delicious new dessert to make, this is it. A healthier fruit Crisp, and it’s just loaded with lots of fresh peaches & blueberries. Then we sprinkle it with an oat-nut topping, bake until crisp and golden. Ahh… It’s as easy as pie and with-out all of that guilt-inducing pie crust! Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

PS. With fall on the way, here’s a great recipe for everyone’s favorite Healthy Apple Crisp.
Peach Blueberry Crisp
6-8 large peaches, peeled and sliced into 8 wedges,
1 cup of blueberries, fresh or frozen
1/3 cup granulated sugar (*or a substitute)
3/4 cup flour (whole wheat, oat or white)
1 cup light brown sugar (*or a substitute)
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup butter, (or Smart Balance) chilled and cut into small pieces
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup almonds, (or any nuts) roughly chopped
* Agave, stevia and honey are good sugar substitutes. Or just use less cane sugar.
- Heat oven to 350° F. Grease a shallow 3-quart baking dish. In a large bowl, toss the peaches, blueberries, granulated sugar, and 1 tablespoon of the flour. Add to the baking dish.
- In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, salt, and the remaining 3/4 cup of flour. Using a fork or fingers, incorporate the butter until coarse crumbs form. Mix in the oats and almonds.
- Sprinkle the oat/nut topping all over the peach/blueberry mixture. Bake until the top is golden/crispy and the fruit is tender, 35 to 45 minutes.
