Blueberry Peach Crisps {Grain Free & Low Sugar}

DSC01448

There are many fruits that pair so well together. Strawberries and bananas, apples and cranberries, mangoes and coconuts… the list goes on and on, but our all time favorite fruit combination is blueberries & peaches.

We try to bake with blueberries and peaches all summer long. Summer isn’t really summer without it. Well, summer is definitely happening this year, because we’ve already devoured a few blueberry peach crisps over this last month.

I spent the evening by Maria & John’s house last night. Rinaldo was working late, so I thought I’d spend some time with them. And I didn’t feel like cooking dinner and Maria so kindly offered that I eat dinner with them! (Maria played a joke on John and told him that my water broke. You should have seen the look on his face! hahahaha Poor Johnny!)

Maria with all her hard work!

While prepping dinner, we went into her yard to see what was ready to be picked. She had a ton of cherry tomatoes, a few peppers and several plump peaches! Yessss. We knew right away that we wanted to bake something with the peaches.

I have to tell you though, I was a little jealous of her peaches. You see, Rinaldo & I have a peach tree in our backyard too. We had over a dozen peaches almost ready to be picked and when we went out to get some a few days later, they were no where to be found… Not a single one… We even checked on the ground. NADA. The only thing we can think of is that someone stole our peaches.

Yes, someone stole fresh peaches from a 9 month pregnant lady’s tree. I’d be very scared if I was that person! We will track you down!

At least Maria was kind enough to share her peaches with me! After some brainstorming, we decided to make some blueberry peach crisps. We have a go to crisp topping that we’ve been using lately. It’s grain free and tastes really good. It’s been tested by many of our family members and they all had great things to say about it as well!

Since berries and peaches are in season right now, we didn’t add a sweetener to the filling. The fruits are sweet enough on their own and without an added sweetener their flavors are able to shine and you can really taste the freshness of the fruit.

The topping is sweetened with honey, but you can use any sweetener you’d like. We only used 3 tablespoons in the entire recipe that serves 6 people, so each person is getting about 1\2 tablespoon of honey. Not bad for a summertime treat! I know crisps and cobblers are usually loaded with sugar, so I think our recipe is definitely one to try if you’re trying to watch your sugar intake and trying to eat healthier.

We hope you’ll give this recipe a try!

Who says you have to give up having dessert in order to eat healthy? It’s all about making good food choices and using ingredients that are nutrient dense!

I hope you all have a great weekend! It finally will be in the 80s this weekend and I’m very much looking forward to spending some time outside. It’s been a ridiculously hot and dry summer here in Chicago and I’m definitely over the heat!

Do you like the combination of blueberries & peaches?

Anything fun planned for this weekend?

    I love blueberries and peaches together too! I just made a blueberry peach banana bread last week :) I can’t believe someone stole your peaches??? That’s pretty crazy!

    I’ve never tried them together! always have to decide which, blueberry or peach! So can’t wait to try this. by the way, about the peaches, this is a really really common problem. RIght when they ripen, animals will steal them. (try hidden cameras lol). no, seriously, squirrels will carry off every single one and hide them somewhere which is why you dont see evidence. Or larger animals such as raccoons can climb a tree and easily strip a tree overnight. Just so you dont blame people:) good luck with the baby!!!!.
