Is there anything better than a steamy, warm-from-the-oven Peach Crisp? Methinks not. Not only is this classic dessert delicious, it’s also quick and easy to assemble, leaving you with more time to celebrate summertime with your loved ones.

I don’t know about you, but it feels like there is a lot to be thankful for this summer. The days are long, the garden is bountiful, and my little tribe is thriving.

This delightful dessert mimics my sunshiny disposition – fresh summer peaches are simply adorned with an oat crumble and baked to perfection for a dessert that is homey and heartening.

Why I Love This Recipe

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that family means everything to me. Well, this recipe reminds me of both my given and my chosen family.

I’m a lucky woman to have had a lovely mother-in-law who shared my love of all thing’s food – my mother-in-law was an actual Home Economics major in college, meaning she was a real-life Suzie Homemaker in the fam! She was the person who introduced me to the wonder of fresh peach crisps.

And even though I hadn’t tried a peach crisp until after I was married, my lifelong love affair with oats began as a child. Both my mom and my grandma always made Avena (Old-Fashioned Mexican Oatmeal) on chilly mornings! One of the things I love most about peach crisp is that the topping is filled with all the Quaker Oat deliciousness I remember from being little.

While I still love my mother-in-law’s recipe, I decided to put my own spin on it. This heavenly recipe is the result!

Sweet, perfumed summer peaches are tossed in the lightest coating of sugar to help them macerate. They’re then topped with an oat crumble that will certainly leave you wanting more.

Quaker Old Fashioned Oats are 100% whole grain and mix deliciously with warming spices and just a touch of butter for a topping that becomes golden and aromatic in the oven.

And, as an added bonus, the whole thing takes less than 20 minutes to prep! That leaves you with more time for what is important – making memories with your loved ones.

How to Make Fresh Peach Crisp

This recipe is so easy, it practically makes itself! Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Peel peaches and slice.

TIP: Want to make life even easier? Opt for frozen peaches instead and make this summery crisp all year round!

Place fruit in a cast iron skillet or 2-quart square baking dish. Stir in the granulated sugar.

Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Or simply dice butter and sprinkle butter over mixture to melt over topping while baking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make peach crisp ahead of time?

Sure! The crisp will last for up to 3 days in the fridge. I recommend that you warm it in the oven prior to serving, though. Peach crisp is infinitely more delicious when it is warm and the topping is still crispy.

Can I use frozen peaches?

Absolutely! If you want to use frozen peaches thaw them first, then drain off the excess liquid. 

Can I make this gluten free?

Absolutely! Simply swap in a cup-for-cup all-purpose gluten free flour mix and opt for Quaker Gluten Free Old Fashioned Oats (look for specially marked packaging). Also, make sure all the ingredients in the recipe are gluten free.

Can I make this vegan?

Yep! Just sub in vegan butter or coconut oil for the butter.
