When berries and peaches are in season, we combine them to make the most scrumptious crumble of all time – a perfect breakfast or dessert with lots of healthy ingredients and sweetness from the fruit.
If you are hosting or just want to use up those fresh fruits this season, this is a crowd-pleaser and, most importantly, picky eater approved. A great source of fiber and vitamins, you will feel confident serving this recipe any time of day.
When you think of a crumble, does your mind instantly go to loads of butter and sugar? This version is on the lighter side without losing out on any of the taste we expect from a crumble!
What is a crumble? A crumble is very similar to a crisp in that it is fruit-filled but less crispy. Which typically includes nuts and whole old-fashioned oats. My crumble is a combination of quick cooking outs, almond flour, and old-fashioned outs creating a softer texture.
Why you’ll love this Berry Peach Crumble:
There are many reasons to love a berry peach crumble like this one. Here are a few of my top reasons why this is a seasonal repeat.
- It is so quick to come together. Preparation for this crumble is less than 10 minutes of work. Two bowls, and in no time, it is ready for the oven. So quickly, it is ready before the oven has heated.
- It is versatile, and any fruit can be used. Remember that the fruit measurements should follow the recipe guidelines, but you can use any fruit. Our top three are blueberry/raspberry, apple, and peach. YUM!
- It is full of healthy ingredients and not overly sweet like you’d expect in a typical crumble. Because the fruits provide so much sweetness, I really take the sugar in the crumble mixture down to ¼ cup of brown sugar. You can also substitute this for maple syrup (equal amounts).
- It can be substituted for frozen at any time of year. I am all for fresh fruits, but you can easily substitute for frozen.
What you will need to make this Berry Peach Crumble:
Simply put, you will need two bowls, one for the fruit mixture and the other for the delicious topping, a baking dish (I use an 8×8 oven-safe pan), and the following ingredients below:
For the filling (fruit mixture):
- Four cups total of fruit (two cups blueberries, two cups diced peaches)
- One tablespoon of cornstarch or arrowroot powder to help keep the fruit intact and avoid a runny crumble.
- A drizzle of vanilla extract for added flavor
- A squeeze of lemon juice for tartness to the sweet flavor of the dish
For the topping (crust crumble):
- The combination of quick-cooking oats, old-fashioned oats, and almond flour makes this crumble delectable. These ingredients total a little more than a cup and a half of dry ingredients.
- One-fourth cup of brown sugar is the right amount of sweetness ratio
- And coconut oil is a great substitute for butter, and we need one-fourth cup, plus I add about a tablespoon of oil to coat the baking dish
How to Make It:
This crumble can be whipped up in minutes and takes 45 minutes of baking before enjoying this delicious in-season blueberry and peach crumble. I always prepare my ingredients before starting on a baking adventure, and I do no different with this one.
First, I preheat the oven to 350°F and prep my fruit. Wash and dice peaches. Add to bowl along with cornstarch, lemon, and vanilla, then add to baking dish. In a separate bowl, add your oats, almond flour, brown sugar, and liquid coconut oil (if your coconut oil is solid, place in the microwave for 30 seconds to liquify). Once your topping mixture is well combined, evenly layer over your fruit mixture in the baking dish.
Place in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Once the topping is golden brown and you see the fruits oozing out, you know the dish is done baking. Let cool slightly before serving.
How to serve it:
It can be served as a well-balanced breakfast or as a delicious dessert accompanied by a scoop of ice cream for extra summer flare. These are best served warm and can be reheated.
