SIMPLE PEACH CRUMBLE

July 13, 2019

Crumbles, crisps, cobblers, I’ll take it any way you make it! One of my absolute favorite desserts in the summer because you can use all the delicious fresh seasonal fruit. July in Texas is in full peach season! We get the best juiciest peaches from Fredericksburg, TX. Its like a cult around here when the peaches are ready, people travel from all over Texas to get their hands on these peaches and they are worth it!


We headed to Vogel Orchard this year to buy our peaches. It’s right off highway 290 in the beautiful Hill Country of Fredericksburg. It is also right along the path of wine country so we may have gotten distracted by a winery or two on our way 🙂

Inside the green peach stand was a variety of seasonal peaches. The workers were so helpful inside by explaining the different varieties and provided a sample of each one. Honestly, they all tasted great, it was so hard to pick which one to buy but we ended up with the loring peaches. The loring peach is a firm but super sweet peach which will make for the best crumble.


Vogel isn’t just peaches, they also had giant watermelons for sale and during certain seasons you can also get local berries, farm fresh vegetables and pumpkins in the Fall. Inside they had a little market which sold all types of jams, preserves and sauces many of which were peach flavored. And if you’re really in the peach mood you can get their homemade peach cobbler with a scoop of ice cream!

So if you plan on making this crumble recipe, which I know you will, I HIGHLY recommend you use local farm fresh peaches! It seriously made the best crumble. The peaches were sweeter and provided a more peachy flavor than the ones I’ve gotten at the grocery store.

SIMPLE PEACH CRUMBLE RECIPE:

This peach crumble recipe is truly the easiest. Using basic pantry items you can throw this dessert together for any last minute summer soiree. Keeping it healthier, I used oats and nuts for the topping mixed in with a little brown sugar.

TO GET STARTED you first want to slice your peaches and arrange them in your cast iron skillet or any type of oven-proof dish will do. You don’t need to add anything to the peaches. If you are using ripe peaches they are already sweet and will cook down nicely.

NEXT in your food processor, pulse the oats, flour, cinnamon, pecans, brown sugar, and salt until crumbly. Next add coconut oil and pulse a few more times until the mixture comes together into a soft crumble.

SPRINKLE topping over your peaches.

DONE! Well almost, now you just have to wait about 15 minutes for it to cook. At the end of cooking I usually set it to broiler for a minute or two just to get the topping a little crispier, but that’s really optional.

We often enjoy our crumble with a scoop of ice cream on top. My favorite ice cream is Dolcezza gelato. However, this crumble is delicious on its own or even simply with a dollop of whip cream.

TIP: If you have extras, I love adding in a spoonful or two into my oatmeal in the morning! So good!
