This fruity peach and blueberry crisp captures the flavors of summer in the simplest of baked desserts. Warm and bubbly fruit is sprinkled with a sweet and crunchy topping to make this dessert taste decadent for only about 160 calories per serving.

This lightened-up sweet treat uses much less butter than traditional baked crisps and features inflammation-fighting blueberries paired with the natural sweetness of fresh peaches. It tastes great on its own, or for a few extra calories, a small scoop of vanilla or your favorite non-dairy ice cream would make a nice addition.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups blueberries
  • 2 medium peaches, peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 of a lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest, freshly grated
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, cold, diced into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. Spray an 8×8 inch square baking dish with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  3. In a bowl, combine blueberries, peaches, cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon zest, and sugar.

  4. Toss well and set aside for 10 minutes.

  5. In a separate bowl, combine butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, and salt.

  6. Mix well with clean hands until well combined—the mixture should be the consistency of wet sand.

  7. Pour fruit mixture into prepared dish and sprinkle evenly with the topping.

  8. Bake for 30 minutes, or until top is golden and fruit is gooey and bubbly.

  9. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Variations and Substitutions

Make this crisp with any type of fresh fruit. Other fun fruity combinations include blackberries and plums, strawberry and rhubarb, and pineapple and cherries (add some dried unsweetened coconut to the topping for this one).

You can also use frozen fruit for convenience or for when your chosen fruit is no longer in season, but you should increase the cooking time by five-minute increments until the dessert is golden and bubbly.

To make it gluten-free, substitute 1-for-1 all-purpose gluten-free flour for wheat flour, and be sure to use certified gluten-free oats.

Cooking and Serving Tips

  • To make ahead, assemble the entire dish and place in the refrigerator for up to two hours.
  • When you're ready to serve, remove from the refrigerator and place directly in a preheated oven and increase the cook time by approximately five minutes.
