Fresh sweet peaches are tossed together with sugar and spices, then baked in between layers of brown sugar and oats to form a chewy sweet crust on this Peach Oatmeal Crunch.

If you’re anything like my family, peach season means that all of your favorite desserts are about to be made. This crunch recipe has been a favorite since long before this blog was a thing.

It doesn’t matter how many other varieties of fruit desserts I make, I always come back to this one.

Almost firm enough to cut into bars and yet just fruity enough to still resemble a crisp, a fruit crunch is simply a fruit crisp with both a top and bottom crust layer.

Don’t be intimidated by the crust layers or the topping, no cutting in cold butter is required. Melted butter is poured into the topping and it forms perfect crumbs to top this dessert.

Peach Dessert Recipes

This time of year, peaches and watermelon are the fruits I crave. And today is all about the peaches.

I will happily start any day with Peaches and Cream Oatmeal. This is a 10-minute breakfast that my whole family loves. And if you have a few extra minutes to prep breakfast, I recommend the Peaches and Cream French Toast Casserole.

Old fashioned Southern Peach Cobbler will likely be my favorite peach dessert for life, but every time I make this crunch, I debated that with myself. (Yes, my favorite foods are always worthy of mental debates.)

Next time you heat up the grill, try Grilled Peaches with Ice Cream for a seriously easy and mouthwatering treat too. The peaches tastes just like the peaches in cobbler, but without any of the effort or extra ingredients.

    What a perfect dessert. Simple yet with so many satisfying flavors. Anything with a bit of cinnamon and fruit makes me happy. Thank you for sharing, sweet friend!

  2. Cheer says

    I would like to try this recipe, I am wondering about halving the butter amount, 2 sticks of butter seems too much for me, what are your thoughts on the success of using just one stick?
