Peach Blueberry Crisp
I’d say almost everyone has summer memories as kids, eating fruit off the vine, munching on a big piece of watermelon, picking berries and popping them in our mouths as fast as we’ve picked them. No matter where we’ve grown up, fruit has been an important part of our summers!

Thinking back on our Africa trip, many of our breakfasts included bananas and fresh fruit. I actually think breakfast was my favorite meal of the day. We ate huge breakfasts because we often didn’t eat lunch until late afternoon. Every day was different, with a different kind of fruit, except bananas were served pretty much at every meal.

Coming home to peach season was a happy moment for me. Our family loves fresh peaches, and they don’t stay on the counter very long.

My son and I canned quite a few, we’ve enjoyed peach ice cream, peach cobbler, and last night I made this tart-yet-sweet Peach Blueberry Crisp!

Blueberries add a whole new element to a crisp. Their plump, firm, fresh, luscious flavor tastes even better when they come from your own garden. We have about 5 blueberry plants.

Blueberries hold up well in the fridge, and with their sweet, tart taste, they’re perfect for a cobbler or crisp.

Combined with peaches?

Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream?

And a cookie dough crisp topping?

You have the perfect summer dessert.

Speaking of memories, I recently read this and loved the warmth of Jack London’s words:

“I shall never forget the first time I saw blueberries served on the table,” American author Jack London wrote in 1906. “I had never seen blueberries before, and yet, at the sight of them, there leaped up in my mind memories of dreams wherein I had wandered through swampy land eating my fill of them. My mother set before me a dish of the berries. I filled my spoon, but before I raised it to my mouth, I knew just how they would taste. Nor was I disappointed. It was the same tang that I had tasted a thousand times in my sleep.”

Thank you Jack, for your descriptive words!

I think it’s time for my afternoon snack. :)

  1. This is like the ultimate summer dessert all baked into one! I am craving this now!

  2. I have made a peach raspberry pie that I LOVED

  3. Wow, can I just say this was amazing, low in calories and I will use this with every fruit I come in contact with! Thank you for the great recipe. I used coconut oil in place of butter, quick oats instead of rolled and vanilla instead of almond extract due to what I had on hand.
