Tess’s Summertime Peach Crisp

peach crisp

 I was walking through my local farmer’s market yesterday and found some beautiful peaches that I had to have. I was planning on canning them, but my kids have been snacking on them and I only have enough to make a dessert with. I can’t blame them, they are fresh picked peaches and one of the added benefits of the summer is indulging in the sun-kissed bounty.

I decided to make a peach crisp and wanted to share the recipe with all of you. This recipe uses organic coconut oil instead of butter, so that you get all the health benefits. As well, the sun ripened peaches has plenty of sweetness in them to contrast the crispy yet chewy topping. This recipe is simple to make and one that your family will love on a hot summer day.
