It’s peach season, and what tastes better than a fresh, warm peach crisp right out of the oven? For an easy recipe to make on a lazy Sunday afternoon, head to your local farmer’s market to pick up some fresh peaches, and the rest of the ingredients can be found right in your pantry. 30 minutes later – pure peach bliss!
Tiny Green Mom’s Peach Crisp
6-8 organic peaches, peeled and sliced
2 Tablespoons lemon juice (or orange juice, if you have no lemons on hand)
1/2 cup sifted all-purpose whole wheat flour, or rice flour, for those on a gluten-free diet
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup organic butter
Put peaches in a shallow 2-quart baking dish, and cover with the lemon juice. In a separate bowl, mix flour, oats and brown sugar together. Cut in butter with a pastry blender. Next, spread the mixture over the peaches and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or until peaches are tender. Serve warm with ice cream, vanilla yogurt, or simply enjoy on its own!
Tip: to make removing the skins of the peaches easier, place peaches in a pot of boiling water for 15-20 seconds, remove, and let cool – the skins should slide right off!
