Good morning! Today I have a recipe for you that is healthy enough to be eaten whenever you feel like it. But you’d never guess it. Seriously – take a gander at this thing of beauty:
Did I just say ‘gander?’ I should be embarrassed. Didn’t people stop saying that, like, even before my parents were born?
Oh well. I make a good peach crisp so I guess you’ll have to keep me.
Wait. Did I just say peach? Not pumpkin?? A blogger in September not using pumpkin??
Yup. I’m here to save you from the sea of orange thats been pouring out of your computer/tablet/phone screen and into your kitchen all month.
Speaking of phones, since I take too many pictures and have no room left on my iPhone, I can’t get ios7. Is this good? Someone please tell me I’m better off, because right now I feel left out.
But I digress. As usual. Back to the peaches.
I wanted to use peaches in a recipe for my friend whom I respectfully refer to as “Peachums” on occasion. Long story.
That, and I’ve had a bag of frozen peaches in my freezer since way back when Justin Bieber was born. Ok, so not that long. But I still wanted to use them.
Also did you know that Peaches are rich in vitamin C? All the more reason to eat them this time of year when everyone and his brother has a cold.
I vote we all stop using pumpkin and start using peaches every fall. Just a suggestion.
Maybe I can win you over to my peach side with this crisp. Can pumpkins make a crisp? Didn’t think so.

Serves 3. But on certain days this can most certainly serve 1. Trust me.
- 3 Cups Frozen Peaches – very much thawed (or just use 3 fresh peaches)
- 1/3 Cup Sliced Almonds
- 2 Tablespoons Almond Meal
- 1 Heaping Tablespoon Almond Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Agave Nectar (or honey)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- pinch of salt
- Pre-Heat Oven to 350
- Lay peaches in a medium sized baking dish (or in individual ramekins)
- Mix together almonds, almond meal, almond butter, agave, vanilla, and salt until its crumbly.
- Spoon mixture over peaches.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the topping starts to brown.
- Let cool – but not for too long.
- Even if you baked it in a dish, serve it in little ramekins for adorableness’ sake.
