I LOVE anything with a crumble, and this summer time fruit was a perfect combination for this complex crumble mixture that requires a brown butter preparation that is totally worth it! Hope you enjoy these delicious treats that will surely be gone quickly!
- 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour (or all-purpose)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 3 large (or 4 medium) ripe peaches, chopped (about 2 cups)
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
Heat a small pan over medium heat. Add the butter and stir continuously until it melts. When you see small brown specks in the butter, remove it from the heat. Add the butter, along with the vanilla, to the oat mixture.
Stir until moistened.
Fold in the peaches.
Grease a 8×8 baking pan. Press mixture into pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Remove and let cool completely-this can take almost an hour. Cut and serve.
