Peach Ginger Crumbles in a Jar

Two of my favorite things are featured in this post: peaches and jars.

It's recipe redux time yet again, and I was super excited about this months theme, so I can't wait to share my recipe with you guys.

First things first, let me tell you about the theme.  It was, and I quite, "raising the bar on food in a jar".  How fun and catchy is that? Basically, the idea was to take anything people put in jars to the next level.  Jams, sauces, portion controlled desserts, you know what I mean.  Like I said, I loved the idea and was determined to make a great recipe for y'all.

It's mid August (where has summer gone??), so peaches are in full swing, at least where I live.  Everywhere I go, it seems we pick up more.  I'm not complaining though, I adore peaches and love how abundant they become this time of year.  If only it could be like that year round.

With peaches coming out of our ears, it seemed perfect you make a peach dish for this months Recipe ReDux.  I decided to go with a simple peach crumble, but I made it extra special by lightening it up and adding ginger to the peach filling.

Baked into small jars and bursting with juicy peach, this is one recipe that is sure to please.  It's cute, tasty, and perfect for summer!

Peach Ginger Crumbles in a Jar

  • 3 large, ripe peaches, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tbsp oat flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger (if you want a less strong ginger flavor, use only 1/2 tsp)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp applesauc
Preheat oven to 325F.  Grease the insides of 6 small mason jars.  In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for filling.  Divide evenly between prepared jars.  In another bowl, mix together oat flour, rolled oats, salt, and cinnamon,  Add honey and applesauce and mix until completely incorporated.  Again, divide mixture evenly between jars, creating a layer above peach filling in each jar.  The jarss should be full, or almost full.  Bake in preheated oven for 16-20 minutes, or until oat mixture is firm and baked through.  Serve warm or cold, with whipped cream if desired.  Makes 6 individual sized servings.  Store leftovers in fridge.
