Peach Blueberry Breakfast Crumble

Never underestimate the peach.

 I mean it.

Take this from someone who's done it before, and don't you ever walk past those quiet little peaches at the farmers market. 

Because when they're good, they're good. 

A perfectly juicy peach can change your view on life.

And your view on crumbles.

Peach Blueberry Crumble - inspired by this recipe
(makes 6 to 8 servings)

Fruit Part:

  • 4 peaches, cored and chopped
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp honey (or another liquid sweetener for vegan option)
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 4 tbsp buckwheat groats
  • 1/2 cup applesauce plus 1-2 tbsp more if needed
  • 2 tbsp honey (or another liquid sweetener)
Preheat oven to 350F.  In a bowl mix together chopped peaches, blueberries, cinnamon, honey and flour.  Make sure all the fruit is evenly coated with the spice and honey mixture.  Pour fruit into a 13x9 pan and set aside.  In another bowl mix oats, flour, cinnamon, salt, and buckwheat groats.  Blend in applesauce and honey, adding more applesauce if mixture is too dry.  Sprinkle crumble oven fruit in clumps, making sure all the fruit is covered.  Bake in oven for 40 minutes.  Serve warm or cold.

Can you believe that this qualifies as a healthy breakfast?

After devouring my huge bowl this morning, without hesitation, I certainly can't.  Though it isn't your traditional crumble, it sure tastes amazing.  I was sneaking little nibbles all day!

I also give you full permission to top this with whatever delicious toppings you can come up with.

Greek yogurt drizzled with honey was especially heavenly.

But, no matter how you eat it, I promise this crumble will make you fall in love with peaches and healthy desserts.

Yes, it is that good.

Pin It!
