Peach and Cherry Crisp

Hi Everyone,

Today is another Skinny Bitch Tuesday and today’s recipe was picked out by Stephanie.  Stephanie chose the Peach Crisp.  Mmmm, I do love peach crisp but I already made one a few weeks ago, so what do I do?  I debated about an apple crisp, but peach crisp is so good, so I decided to change-up the recipe just a little by adding Bing Cherries to my Peach Crisp.  Perfect!

Since I’m going away and I didn’t want to waste my crisp, I decided to make them in mini 6 oz ramekins.  This isn’t only nice for individual servings, but it is nice for portion control, since I have the tendency to go overboard with my desserts.  But in all actuality this dessert is healthy!  Win, win!!

I never had the combination of peaches and cherries and I was pleasantly surprised how well this combination goes together.  The cherries really added a huge flavor boost to the crisp!  For the rest of the recipe I basically left it the same, however I decided to omit the brown rice syrup and use brown sugar instead.  I think brown sugar is so much better in crisp, don’t you?

The flavor in general with the crisp is delicious, however I think it was missing something, which I haven’t quite figured out yet. The topping I think maybe a little to many oats for me.  I think I’m looking for more chunky topping.  This crisp isn’t super sweet, so if you want a sweeter crisp I recommend using more brown sugar.  For me, I’m really trying, key word trying, to watch my sugar intake, after all I have a muffin top to try to get rid of, which is not easy!

I was surprised how juicy the fruit was in it.  The Cookbook recommended mixing the brown rice syrup with coconut oil and water, since I wasn’t using the syrup, I decided to add just add 1 tsp of water over the top of each ramekin.  I wasn’t sure about this, but the fruit inside was nice and juicy.  I mixed it up to show.

The next day for breakfast I decided to add my crisp to a bowl of plain yogurt.  It was perfect!  This makes for a great breakfast!!  It’s full of healthy fruit, oats, a good carb and coconut oil, a good fat, plus the protein from the yogurt!  This breakfast kept me full for hours. Yummy!!  Needless to say I ate all of my crisp with yogurt!  I just love it that way!!!  But adding some ice cream over the top would be heavenly!

  1. These individual crisps are a fantastic idea! I love the combination of cherry and peach!

  2. Yum! I made a galette last week that had cherries and peaches and was also pleasantly surprised how great the two fruits taste together! Looks delish!

  3. YOU do not have a muffin top! You are beautiful! So now that that’s settled let’s talk about the crisp – it looks quite yummy, we must have been in the same mood, I made a cobbler today with cherries, blueberries and raspberries. I do love fruit desserts in any way, shape or form. Yours looks healthier than mine!

  4. This crisp would be amazing served “a la mode” with a scoop of banana soft serve on top!!

  5. Love the combination of peaches with cherries! This looks yummy! I am also loving your decision to make individual portions to save for later :)

  6. Healthy dessert, ready in 30 minutes…mmm I like that. Thanks
