A few adjectives to describe this blueberry peach crisp recipe:
- Warm & spicey
It's a crisp that you can eat a healthy serving of and feel energized and satiated, but not comatose. It's also one that will surprise people with how healthy it is, given it's developed and indulgent flavors.
Do you need to refrigerate a blueberry or peach crisp?
Yes! You need to refrigerate a blueberry or peach crisp after it's baked. Otherwise, the fruit will go bad quickly and it won't last as long at room temp.
Do you have to peel peaches for a crisp?
Nope! You don't have to peel peaches for a crisp. It's a matter of personal opinion. If you like the skin and the extra fiber they provide, leave them on. Otherwise, feel free to peel them.
What's the difference between a cobbler and a crumble?
They are the same! Both of them have a crumbly mixture that tops the fruit while baking.
Can you freeze peach crisp or crumble after baking?
I don't recommend it. The crumb topping doesn't stand up well to the low temperatures. If you're looking for creative ways to use up the crumble, however, try it on some pancakes or french toast for breakfast! You'll be so glad you did.
How to make a healthy blueberry & peach crumble:
Combine the flour and other dry ingredients for the crumble filling in a small dish. Whisk together lightly with a fork until they're thoroughly combined.
In a medium-large bowl, combine the peaches and blueberries. Squeeze half a lemon, and maple syrup over them and then toss until the fruit is evenly covered with the syrup and juice.
Add the flour mixture to the berry mixture and lightly toss the mixture together until the fruit is covered with the flour mixture.
In another small bowl, combine the topping ingredients and stir lightly until mixed. Then, crumble the oil into the dry ingredients with your fingers until all the oil is worked in.
Scatter the topping evenly on the fruit and bake for 27-30 minutes, or until the topping is browned and the berries are juicy and some have burst.

1. I used a 1-quart baking dish in these photos, so if you use a 1.5 quart dish (like a 8x8 dish or a loaf pan), it won't look as full as these pictures.
