A lightened up version of traditional peach cobbler, this Peach Crumble is the perfect ending to any summer meal!
I love summertime because there are so many fresh fruits and vegetables in season! Right now one of my favorites is at peak production – peaches! I like eating peaches all by themselves, but using them in a variety of ways makes me truly love them! From blending them in a smoothie, adding slices to my salad, or dicing some up for a salsa – you can’t go wrong with peaches!
One of my peach weaknesses is peach cobbler. My dad makes a killer dutch oven peach cobbler. The only thing is, it isn’t the healthiest (insert sad face). So despite this peach cobbler addiction, I have found a healthier alternative to that diet busting peach cobbler that I always want to gobble down. This peach crumble is still a dessert recipe and should be eaten in moderation, but it is better than the traditional version (tastes just as good – or even better!). By using an oat crumble as the topping instead of a dough, you save nearly 150 calories and over 30 grams of sugar, while increasing fiber and other nutrients! This treat will be a great finish to any summer meal.
