I love summer for so many reasons, with one of the top being all the delicious and sweet produce that is available in abundance, including peaches like these we found at our local farmer’s market recently.
My daughter and I love going to the farmer’s market on a weekly basis and she gets just as excited as I do about the fresh fruits and veggies. We usually pick up what’s in season and she loves to aid in picking out the produce with me.
Recently we came home with over 12 pounds (!) of peaches. They were just so tasty and I had a hard time telling her to stop picking them out, she was just enjoying herself so much.
While we love our produce ‘as is’ meaning just cut and eaten straight, we also love using it to make various meals, sides, and desserts. With such a large amount of peaches I decided I would cut and freeze some of them for future use and also make a couple desserts with them, including this easy peach crisp.
I typically make apple crisp in the Fall, but haven’t made a peach crisp before and it was a nice change and a great way to enjoy some of the fresh, sweet peaches that we purchased from our local farmer’s market.
And I will have to admit that my daughter and I made this peach crips in the afternoon for an after dinner dessert, but it did not last until after dinner! We had one taste and decided to eat it for our afternoon snack.
This recipe is really easy to make and is dairy, egg, nut, and gluten-free. If you are gluten-free be sure to choose oats that are certified gluten-free.
This recipe can be easily doubled as well and would be perfect for a summertime dessert for friends and family.
Hope you are enjoying your summer and all the fresh produce available at this time of the year. If you are a peach lover like we are you’re sure to also enjoy this delicious dessert!
