Blueberry Peach Crisp

Happy 4th of July!!

I’m moving at fast speed trying to get ready for my trip.  I’m blogging away, getting work done for a presentation I have to give in Germany and trying to cook and bake so my family have meals while I’m gone. So with all that said, I have to apologize in advance if my blogs seem short.  I have 11 of them to write in just a couple of days.  Ahhhhh!!

I’m so excited for my trip since I have never been to Europe.  I’m just crossing my fingers that there are not any fog delays in San Francisco.  They only gave me an hour between flights!  Eck!!!  .

Today I have a wonderful spring recipe for you that I made for the Holiday Recipe Club.  Our choices of food to use were blueberries, whip cream or barbecue sauce.  I chose to use Blueberries!  You know I just love my fruit!!

This crisp is simply delicious and guilt-free!  I love how sweet the peaches are in it.  I made oatmeal the other day and used peaches and blueberries and I just feel in love with the combination, that I had to make crisp with it.  Fruit crisps are one of my favorite desserts.  I’ll take any kind of fruit crisp any day!

For the fruit I decided to use honey instead of sugar.  The honey really compliments the fruit.  Not intentionally, but I made this crisp gluten-free.  Instead of flour I used gluten-free oat flour which is oatmeal ground up into flour.  There’s also no butter in the recipe, I used melted coconut oil.  This is truly a guilt-free crisp that comes in at 150 calorie a serving, which is a big size, my guess is about a heaping cups worth.

Besides eating the crisp plain, I decided to use it as a topping on my yogurt.  Now normally I keep my crisps, I’m kind of greedy that way, but I decided to take it into work.  I brought it out of the refrigerator at 8 am and by 9am it was pretty much gone.  No one took the last piece, which is pretty common in my office.  I guess people feel guilty about taking that last piece, so I took it and had it for breakfast the next day!  Yum!  The longer it sits the sweeter it gets, but I will say it does start to get a little soggy, but still good!

Don’t you just love the colors?  The peach colors were gorgeous and well the blueberries, are just blueberries.  This was the first time I ever baked peaches before and wow, what a great fruit to bake!!!  This is a definite must do again!!

  3. Two of my favorites—peaches and blueberries. Love the crisp. This is one of the very best homey desserts. Have a great time on your trip!

  4. Blueberry peach is one o my favorite summer time combinations! YUM!

  5. Oooh great idea on the peach-blueberry combo! Need to try this ASAP! Happy 4th! 🙂

  6. You are going to LOVE Europe…just like I love this recipe! I adore peaches this time of year and this crisp looks quite addicting. Have a wonderful trip friend and enjoy every minute!

  7. Mmm putting peaches with blueberries was an exceptionally good idea.

  8. What a great use of blueberries! I just happen to have peaches and blueberries in my fridge right now. I might have to try this for dessert tonight!

  9. Delicious looking crisp! I love the mix of fruits!

  10. I make fruit crisps all the time but I’ve never thought of mixing blueberries and peaches together. Looks and sounds delicious so now I have to try it.

  11. Hope you have a great trip to Germany. Lovely crisp and I especially like the tiny drop of coconut oil. Bet it delivers a lovely creamy background flavour.

  12. What a decadent dessert! Peach and blueberries are both my favorite fruits! 🙂

  13. Blueberry and peach is one of my favorite combos. My grandmother used to make a blueberry peach pie, which inspired me to make crisps which are much easier. I found your recipe by googling blueberry peach crisp and stevia. I’m new to stevia but I generally like it in moderation. Two questions. Did you use the liquid or the powder? And did you taste the stevia in the crisp? I’ve been experimenting with alternative sweeteners and I’ve also made a date syrup which I could try too. Either way, I think I’ll give this a try tonight. Thanks for the recipe.

    • Hi! I use NuNaturals stevia granuals, it’s like sugar. No, you don’t taste it in the crisps. My family doesn’t even notice. It’s my favorite, plus it doesn’t leave any after taste. I buy mine online, but I do know Whole Foods carries NuNaurals stevia. Date syrup sounds interesting. I have never heard of it. If you make it, let me know how it is. 🙂

      • Wow. Great recipe. I especially love the oat, oat flour, almond meal crisp. I used the liquid stevia and I mixed it with the coconut oil. I thought it had a slight aftertaste but not enough to take away from the recipe. I also added a little lemon juice to the peach/blueberry mix. Really, really good. Thanks!
