These fruity, buttery Peach Crumble Bars recipe makes a lovely summer treat! There’s nothing like this easy peach-filled dessert to celebrate peaches!
If you love peaches, than you have come to the right place! This peach dessert is easy to make and loaded with this lovely summer stone fruit!
Did you ever hate something as a kid only to grow up and absolutely love it! Peaches are that for me. I grew up hating peaches and refusing to eat them. Boy have things changed! I absolutely adore them now and get so excited when local peaches are in season because they are SO GOOD!
On our last trip to the grocery store I picked up a lot of local peaches. They are only in season for so long, right, so I am determined to get my fill of them! I have been busy eating them and transforming them into delicious meals. I’ve made Homemade Peach Jam, several salads, peach glaze for grilled meats and, of course, desserts!
These Peach Crumble Bars, in particular, are one of my favourites! It’s easy to make (and I do love a good easy recipe) and it really showcases peaches well! It’s also healthier than most desserts! I mean, how awesome is that?!
How to make Healthy Peach Crumble Bars
To make this dessert, you will need:
For the Oatmeal Crust
- 1/3 cup cold butter
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon each vanilla extract and baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Filling:
- 5 peaches, sliced thinly
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
To start, preheat the oven to 350F and line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, add all the filling ingredients and mix together. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the butter, coconut oil, and sugar and mix until well blended and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until they are combined.
Spread half of the oatmeal mixture onto the bottom of the 9×9 pan. Top with the filling, making sure to spread it evenly in pan. Top it with the remaining oatmeal mixture, doing your best to cover as much of the peaches as you can. It is okay if a few peaches are still poking through.
Sprinkle with some sugar and cinnamon and bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes or until it begins to turn a light golden-brown.
Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes to cool. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Once cooled, cut into squares.
I hope you enjoy these bars as much as I do!
