Cinnamon Oat Peach Crumble is a skillet bake using sliced peaches lightly coated in sugar and lemon zest then topped with a cinnamon brown sugar oat crumble.
Peaches are coming back in season, people! Which means galettes, pies, cobblers and crumbles galore. For Father’s Day last Sunday I picked up a bag of ripe peaches at the store and made a cinnamon oat peach crumble for dessert.
The only thing better than a juicy, ripe peach on a warm summer day is a delectable oat peach crumble served on a cool summer night. I made a similar crumble with blueberries a couple summers ago during my family’s annual trip to Maine. It was such a hit, I was aching to try it again.
I opted for only peaches in this crumble to see how they tasted with a cinnamon oat topping sans blueberries (it seems as though blueberries are always paired with that streusel-like flavor combo). To my delight the topping complemented the peaches perfectly. The softly baked peaches oozed with juices that sweetened up the oat-y cinnamon crumble layered on top.
This cinnamon oat peach crumble couldn’t have turned out better. A hefty serving on top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream is really the ultimate summer dessert. And if you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, you can even serve it over vanilla yogurt for breakfast! I mean cinnamon is packed with health benefits. Treat yo self.
