Easy Peach Crisp: Light and Healthy!

We’re loving fresh peaches in our home right now. In fact, our family recently went up to our friends’ home to pick from their tree.

So, on to the hot topic of “dessert every night” …

The other night I wanted a healthier, easy peach crisp recipe that I could make quickly. The recipe that I made is definitely healthier than the average “crisp” recipe out there.

Peel and slice peaches into a 9×13 pan. Add 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. Drizzle 1/4 cup honey over all.

Use up any leftover flaked cereal in your cupboard- 2-3 cups; sprinkle over the peaches. (I used Costco’s Cinnamon Pecan Cereal.)

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

Let stand for 5-10 minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream.

We do not have dessert every night in our home. In fact, we’ll go weeks with no dessert, but in the summertime it’s hard to resist, with all of the fresh fruit on the counter, which you don’t want to go to waste! (Cobbler, crisp, smoothies, over ice cream … oh yum!)

Do you have dessert every night in your home?

  2. Congrats on the book! I found you through Robin Sue of Big Red Kitchen. Your dessert looks divine!

  3. I got your book in the mail this week. I featured it as one of my fave fives for today

  4. I don’t make dessert every night, usually once a week, but I let the kids pick a small treat after dinner, a cookie or mini candy bar or a pudding. Sometimes some jellybeans or strawberries sprinkled with a bit of sparkly sugar.

  5. We don’t have dessert very often here, I do love dessert though and if I can stick to the healthier ones we may have them more often but I can’t trust myself not to go for a sticky chocolatey pudding!

  6. This sounds so yummy! Does it matter what type of cereal you use (wouldn’t want it to get mushy). We rarely have dessert with meals. I tend to do desserts mainly when we have company (less chance of it being left around here for me to eat). I will occasionally make cookies or banana/zucchini bread but they are a once in awhile treat.

  7. My mouth is watering.

    We don’t eat dessert often. But my boys will often have fruit snacks or pretzels (still junk food, even if not technically “dessert”) or graham crackers and nutella most days around 3ish to tide them over for dinner.

    When it comes to holiday time, we tend to be heavy on sweets. We do traditional pies for Thanksgiving, caramels and fudge and cookies for Christmas. But especially during the spring and summer – I rarely bake. Seems they get candy at Easter which lasts until the 4th of July parade which we still have in the cabinet and I will throw out in time for Halloween. ;)

  8. Not every night, but more than we should! :) I just make what we have as healthy as possible…good ingredients, organic etc…I have to justify it somehow. Everything in moderation, right??? Your peaches look so yummy!

  9. Sounds soooo good right now. It’s overcast and soon-to-be-rainy here in Utah. This would go very well with the fall’ish weather.

  10. We don’t have dessert every night, same thing for us, we will go weeks. But we have apple, pear, plum, and cherry trees, grapes, blackberries, raspberries, and marion berries. So this time of year we definitely have more desserts.

    This looked so easy, and I’m all about trying to do it healthier. I’ll try it!
    God bless!

  11. Wow, I’m impressed that you don’t normally have dessert after dinner. I must admit that we have dessert EVERY day, but it’s normally just a little something sweet like a handful of chocolate chips.

  12. Thank goodness! I thought I had found a cobbler / crisp / buckle recipe with whole wheat flour but lost it. This one looks just as good. Cheers!

  13. your posts always make my mouth water.. MMMMMM

  14. Mercy, Sandy! That looks divine! We do not have dessert daily. My hips could not take it! I did have a great piece of chocolate cake last night at an Uzbek restaurant. It had a pomegranate-cherry sauce- YUMMY!
