Fresh Peach and Oat Crumble

Sharing is caring!

Here in the south, we ADORE our fresh peaches. I love biting into a bright pink peach and slurping up the sweet juice that spills out before it runs down your face and your arms. This summer, turn your peaches into a Fresh Peach and Oat Crumble, a delectable dessert that you can enjoy for years to come.

how to: prepare the fresh peaches

I learned the hard way how important it is to have RIPE peaches! I couldn’t wait to bite into peaches straight from the Instacart order, but sadly they were very tough and were more like apples.

After sitting on the counter for a few days to ripen at room temperature, the peaches were nice and soft and (I was hoping) bursting with flavor!

Slice the peaches thinly. If you wait until they’re soft to the touch, the juices should be flowing; it’s such a treat to lick your fingers clean of all the sweet peach juice!

Sprinkle the peach slices with sugar and cinnamon and toss to combine. This process can be referred to as a simple form of “macerating,” in which the sugar draws moisture out of the peaches to help create a nice syrup, and that means even MORE flavor.

Set aside while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

how to : prepare the oat crumble

dry and wet ingredients in bowls

The dry ingredients and wet ingredients should be prepared separately before combining in one bowl.

In a medium bowl, mix the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt thoroughly.

Melt the butter in a small bowl and stir in vanilla. Slowly incorporate into the dry mixture.

Here’s where you can have a little fun with your dessert!

For a more crisp topping like you would expect for a crumble, the batter should be a little loose and dry. 

For a more cobbler feel with a thicker cake-like topping, add more melted butter a tablespoon at a time until the batter is wet and sticky.

how to: Bake fresh Peach and Oat Crumble

butter in baking dishes

Melt butter in your baking dish by placing it in the oven that’s preheating.

First, place the peaches in the dish and make sure the bottom is covered.

Pour the batter evenly over the peaches.

If opting for a crumble topping, place a few thin slices of butter on top of the oat crumble. 

Bake 20-25 minutes or until the batter is golden brown. For increased crispiness, place under the broiler for 3-4 minutes.

Serve with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra special treat! This 3-ingredient whipped cream recipe can be thrown together while the crumble is baking!

    1. We are big fans of oath.
      However we never try it with peach and it looks incredibly delicious!.
      I think we dont have to think what to have for breakfast tomorrow.
      Thanks for sharing!!

  1. I did not know you had to use ripe peaches for the recipe. That’s such a good tip. Even though apple pies are my favorite kind of pies, I can’t deny that this pie looks DELICIOUS. I’ll have to save this recipe to make during the holidays. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I made the mistake of cutting into one peach too early and it literally could have been an apple haha all the flavor and texture was very unlike a peach!

    Oh my, this looks so delicious! I know what you mean about unripe peaches – I’ve left a banana with mine to ripen them faster. My favourite cooked peaches dish is sprinkled with cinnamon and drizzled with maple syrup – yum! Lisa

  3. Oh I love anything with peaches in it for a summer dessert. This sounds so perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. I love peaches, my favorite peaches dessert would be the peach cobbler. How similar is the piece cobbler to your peach & oats crumble? It looks delicious, and would go great with a cup of coffee.

    1. This crumble is a little lighter than cobbler because the batter is thinner and mostly oats! It can be turned into something more like a cobbler with a bit more flour and butter 🙂

  5. I’ve tasted blueberry crumble and apple crumble, but I have never heard of peach crumble. That’s interesting to me, and I would love to try it one day!

    Every time I visit your blog, I pin another recipe to try in the future. Yet, all the equipment I purchased at the start of summer remains in plastic packaging. At this point, I have no idea when I will ever get down to cooking/baking… Hopefully soon haha!

    Thanks for sharing, Kalin! 🙂

    1. Haha it’s so easy to get in the habit of not cooking or baking. Food has been one of my favorite things to look forward to during lockdown, whether made in my own kitchen or ordering in!

    Yummy! This looks like such a tasty summer dessert. I bet it would be delicious after a roast dinner. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I don’t like apple crumble but this version with the peaches sounds divine!

    Em x

  7. Yum! I absolutely love anything with peaches and anything with crumble, so this is obviously a winner. It’s always so hard for me to be patient waiting for peaches to ripen. I want to eat them immediately!

    I have marked this as my next go-to recipe when the peach season arrives. Have never tried a peach cobbler with oats before, it’s such a healthy way to make desserts. Thanks for this!
    In the past. I’ve replaced peaches with pineapple and a pineapple cobbler tastes great too 🙂
