It’s Summertime!  Which means we should be celebrating by spending time in the sun and eating all the fresh fruits and ice cream right!  

Lately on Saturday mornings we’ve been waking up and going to the local farmers market to purchase coffee and fresh produce.  Peaches are one of our favorite seasonal fruits and we find the juiciest peaches can be purchased from local farmers. And when arriving home we can’t wait to get baking sweet treats the whole family will love.  This Peach Crisp recipe is just that, quick and easy to make and only requires a few ingredients.

To make the Peach Crisp healthier we swapped out a few ingredients.  We use almond flour and oats to replace all-purpose flour, coconut oil for butter, and maple syrup and coconut sugar for refined brown sugar.  These simple swaps provide more fiber, nutrients, and healthy fats to the dish.

We are all about balance here, which means we believe we don’t need to deprive ourselves when our sweet tooth kicks in.  We know some days eating a plain piece of fruit just doesn’t satisfy the way a chocolate bar does. This Healthy Peach Crisp recipe is the perfect balance for a better for you dessert.

The Peach Crisp is delicious on it’s own, but we like to serve it with a scoop of our favorite vanilla ice cream.  Just one bite for the taste of sweet sweet Summertime.
