Fresh Peach Crumble

Happy Friday, y’all! I am on a break from all things digital today and tomorrow, but I will respond to your comments and catch up on my awesome Bloglovin’ feed shortly.

Apparently, it’s peach season. I had no idea. I always figured that peaches thrive best in the summertime, along with nectarines. Why is that not true? Can anyone explain it to me?

Fresh Peach Crumble

I’ll be honest. Given the choice between a peach and a nectarine, I’ll go nectarine every time. Something about that fuzzy skin throws me. I’m suspicious of it. But when I’m making a crumble and peeling the fruit anyway, it doesn’t matter!

Peach crumbles are great because you can play with the flavors. I drizzled a little almond extract over the peaches along with vanilla, which works so well. You could never pull that off with a plain ol’ apple. And instead of using flour, I used oat flour. Why not? You’ll never miss it among all the oats and brown sugary goodness!

The most labor-intensive aspect of this recipe is peeling the fruit. Oh, and cutting the butter into the crumb topping. But neither one is that bad. And you can use a pastry cutter to do the topping. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend that you get one ASAP. They have them on Amazon, and you will never dread cutting butter into crust again.

This crumble bakes up in about a half hour, and the best part about it is that you can eat it fresh from the oven! Ideally, with ice cream. And maybe some toasted almonds. And caramel. Okay, I’m gonna calm down now!


Fresh Peach Crumble


4 large peaches, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup rolled oats (labeled gluten-free)
1/2 cup oat flour (labeled gluten-free)
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Coat an 8 x 8 pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place the peaches evenly in the pan. Drizzle carefully with the almond and vanilla extracts. Sprinkle the granulated sugar evenly over the peaches.
  3. In a bowl, mix the oats, oat flour, and brown sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or two knives and mix until crumbs form. Be sure not to let the crumbs get too small.
  4. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the peaches.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden and bubbly. Serve warm.



I fulfill many roles in life: wife, mother, teacher, everlasting learner. This site is dedicated to one role that expresses my creativity in ways that I find consistently challenging and rewarding: baker. Inventing new ways to enhance food, especially if that food involves chocolate or peanut butter (or both!), is a passion of mine. I look forward to sharing my ideas with you.

    I always make apple crumbles, but I don’t know why I never think to make a peach crumble, as I love peaches. This recipe sounds delicious 🙂

    Peach crumbles are my absolute favorite, Mir! I could definitely eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and then some! And I had no idea it was peach season either, I always assumed it was just in the summer. This looks absolutely fantastic! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, friend!
