Stovetop Peach Blueberry Crisp

Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 20 minutes | Total: 30 minutes
Yield: 6 servings | Serving Size: About ½ cup


3 peaches, diced (can substitute another fruit,
such as apples or plums)
½ cup blueberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey, divided
¼ teaspoon plus a pinch cinnamon, divided
½ cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch salt
1 tablespoon canola oil or avocado oil, divided


1. In a bowl, mix together the peaches, blueberries, lemon juice, cornstarch, 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup or honey, and 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon. Set aside.

2. In a separate bowl, mix together the rolled oats, sliced almonds, 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup or honey, the vanilla extract, a pinch of the cinnamon, and the salt.

3. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add ½ tablespoon of the oil and heat until shimmering.

4. Add the oat mixture and reduce the heat to low. Cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown and toasted, about 4-6 minutes. Transfer mixture to a plate and set aside.

5. Add ½ tablespoon of the oil to the now-empty skillet and increase the heat to medium.

6. Add the fruit mixture. Cover the skillet with a lid and cook until the peaches are softened, about 8-10 minutes, removing the lid to stir occasionally.

7. Remove the lid and cook until the mixture has thickened, about 3-5 more minutes, stirring occasionally.

8. Top the fruit mixture with the oat mixture and serve warm.
