Easy Peach Crisp with Raspberries

This dessert takes me back to my childhood summers, my dad’s exploding raspberry bushes, and my mom’s fruit crisps. I hadn’t had a good summer fruit crisp in ages and just had to make one. 

My mom made the best raspberry crisps and they will always hold special memories for me. Helping my dad pick raspberries and getting eaten alive by mosquitos in the process, not so much.

For this fresh peach crisp recipe, I didn’t actually pick the raspberries from overflowing bushes. I picked them straight from the TJ’s frozen berries section for $1.99 

A nice thing about crisps is that they’re fruit-based and naturally on the healthier side as desserts go. As much as I love peanut butter, chocolate, and caramel things, now that we’re in the height of swimsuit season, lighter is nicer.

If you’re someone who thinks, fruit is not dessert, I assure you this is. The sweet juicy peaches in contrast with the slightly tart raspberries, when paired with the crunchy and crumbly oat-based topping, is just heavenly. So many taste and texture sensations in every bite and I love it.

I’m a sucker for any kind of crumble topping, and when you’re mixing up the topping and sprinkling it on, it looks like a lot. But as the crisp bakes, much of the topping seeps down into the fruit and it turns out to be just the right amount.

The crisp is good enough to stand on its own, and I didn’t add whipped cream or ice cream, although you could probably twist my arm and I wouldn’t say no.

My daughter loved seeing the big red raspberries and their sweet, pink-colored juice staring back at her. I foresee lots of crisps this summer with all different kinds of fruit.

How to Make Peach Raspberry Crisp

In a large bowl, toss together the peach chunks, raspberries, sugar, and cornstarch. In another bowl, stir together the oats, butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt (you’ll need to cut the butter in with your hands or a fork). 

Turn the fruit mixture into a greased pie dish, making sure to scrape any leftover juices into the dish as well (that’s pure flavor!).

Sprinkle the crumble topping over the fruit, then bake the peach crisp until the edges start bubbling vigorously and the top is golden brown. 

Can I Make Peach Crisp Gluten-Free? 

Yes, to make this gluten-free you need to use certified gluten-free oats and either an oat flour or a gluten-free flour blend. This peach crisp recipe is super easy to make gluten-free, and it doesn’t taste any different without the gluten!

Can I Double This Recipe? 

Yes, this raspberry peach oatmeal crisp can be doubled. Simply double the ingredients and bake in a 9×13-inch baking dish.

Can I Use Frozen Peaches?

Tips for Making the Best Peach Crisp

Homemade fruit crisps are incredibly fast and easy to make, but they’re the epitome of comfort food and so satisfying. They’re also incredibly flexible based on what you have on hand.

You want to aim for a total of about 4 cups to 5 cups fruit, mixing and matching as you like. Rather than peaches, you could also use nectarines, pears, or mangoes. No raspberries? Try blueberries, strawberries, or blackberries.

Have a mixture of fresh and frozen to use? Go for it. Baking with frozen fruit is cheaper and it’s available year-round. But if you have fresh, you’re lucky. Use them.

Peach Raspberry Crisp

This peach crisp is impossible to resist! The sweet peaches contrast beautifully with the tart raspberries, and that crumble topping is SO good! 

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Cooling Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 heaping cups diced peach chunks (about 4 medium ripe peaches; I didn’t peel them. Nectarines or mangoes are good subs)
  • 1 1/2 heaping cups raspberries (I used frozen and did not thaw first)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold (3/4 of 1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned whole-rolled oats (not quick cook or instant)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch salt, optional and to taste
  • whipped cream, whipped topping, or ice cream, optional for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9-inch pie dish very well with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add the peaches, raspberries, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, cornstarch, and toss gently to combine until all white traces have disappeared; set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, add the butter, brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, optional salt, and using two forks or your hands (I find my hands work best and it’s the easiest), cut the butter into the dry ingredients until small pea-sized clumps form and some sandy bits form; set aside.
  4. Give the fruit another stir and turn mixture out into prepared pie dish, scraping out and including any juice that collected in the mixing bowl.
  5. Evenly sprinkle the crumble mixture over the fruit. It looks like a lot when sprinkling, but as the crisp bakes, it seeps down into the fruit and it turns out to be just the right amount.
  6. Place pie dish on a cookie sheet (insurance is case there’s an overflow in the oven) and bake for about 45 to 48 minutes, but start checking at about 35 minutes. Crisp should be bubbling quite vigorously near the edges of dish and bubbling to a lesser degree in center. Topping should be very lightly golden browned and set.
  7. Place pie dish on a wire rack to cool for at least 20 minutes, or overnight, before serving. I prefer crisp to set up for a few hours or overnight, but it can be served warm.
  8. Optionally serve with whipped cream, whipped topping, or ice cream.

  1. I have made this several times and each time I am so happy with it. This last time I used quick oats because that’s all I had and I used extra oats to add some more bulk. I also used under ripe peaches which cooked really well had enough sweetness with the sugar and kept a tart firmness almost like an apple. I added a bit extra cornstarch because I wanted it to be more firm/less liquidy especially since I used quick oats and I didn’t want them getting too mushy

    1. Thank you so much for the 5 star review and I am glad you’ve made it many times and are always happy with it! Sounds like you know your way around the kitchen and how to compensate for using quick oats with cornstarch and that your under ripe peaches also worked just fine!

  2. I love this recipe made it as is with raspberries and peaches, added a 1/4 cup more oat flakes, it was excellent.  In the oven right now, peaches and blueberries.  That is what was in the fridge! Thanks, easy and fast to make.

  3. We will be going to South Carolina soon to pick up a truck load of peaches for family and friends. I need to try this recipe. I have never cared for raspberries but our oldest son likes it. 
    Peaches are my favorite fruit. 

  4. Oh yes. I remember mosquitoes while picking raspberries. We also had black raspberries that grew wild on our property when I was growing up and while the fruit was good, the mini-vampires were not so much fun. Anyway, this recipe is right up my alley–yum!

  5. Other than the mosquitos, picking raspberries sounds like fun! A childhood friend of mine lived in Berkeley, and they had a backyard full of blackberry bushes. (No fences either — we could roam into her neighbors’ yards too!) We spent summers picking berries off of the bushes and rubbing off the dirt before popping them in our mouths. Their juiciness was definitely worth the scratches! ;) I love how much crumble topping you used on your crisp; it’s definitely my favorite part of any dessert!

  6. I’ve seen your crisp all over Pinterest and just had to come get the recipe!! This looks so great – the perfect summer recipe!! Although I love that you picked your berries from TJ’s freezer section – that made me laugh! But also so good to know that I can make this delicious crisp year round!!

  7. Hi Averie, this looks divine! I haven’t made a crisp in years! Time to do try one again :) Just wanted to verify that the 1/2c of brown sugar does go into the ‘crisp’ mixture right? Thanks in advance!

    1. Yes the brown sugar goes into the crisp mixture, and I edited the recipe section so it’s clearer now. Thanks & enjoy the crisp!

  8. I wish I didn’t have to follow a dialysis diet…{ sigh } But I’ve let my best friend, my daughter, &;my ex-husband/friend all know about your website. Thank you for sharing.

  9. Raspberries are one of my favourite fruits, love that tart taste. And that crisp texture? I just want to dig in with a giant spoon. :) Gorgeous.

  10. I think raspberries are my absolute favorite fruit. And I love crisps. It’s a midwest thing. We just got back from visiting my in-laws, who made a rhubarb crisp–I thought my kid’s eyes were gonna roll up in their heads as they went into a Crisp Coma.

  11. Ice cream is soo not optional for a crisp!! Love the combo of raspberry and peaches!! YUMMY!

    1. I know, and I wanted to add it, but you know what happens when the camera sees a big blob of white on red? It makes the white look super bright and the red look dark and I just didn’t even want to make more work for myself in editing…ha, so I skipped it for the pics! But in reality, yes, ice cream is awesome with crisps!

  12. Holy sweet, tart, crumbly goodness! Don’t know if it will replace your microwave apple crumble for the #1 spot in my book… guess I will have to try it and find out ;) YUMMMM

  13. This looks so pretty! I absolutely love peaches and raspberries so I really can’t wait to give this recipe a try. It looks like it would be really easy to turn into a vegan recipe too by replacing real butter with Earth Balance vegan butter. Also, you should definitely try this recipe with rhubarb and raspberries. My grandmother makes it like that and it is so delicious!

    1. Super easy to do that and I was going to say it’s also easy to make GF by using GF flour and/or oat flour (certified GF) made from oats. But then I get so many questions and combinations and well what if this and that, and so I just…didn’t. Because I knew people like you would figure that out on your own :)

  14. I love me a good crisp in the summertime, and I’m adoring this combination of raspberries and peaches. I also like how this crisp stands on its own, though I certainly wouldn’t complain about adding ice cream, either. ;)

    Here’s to the summertime, memories and making lots more decadent summer-centric desserts!

  15. I grew up in a fruit & cheese-dessert household; this will most definitely suffice! Gorgeous photos!

  16. Yum, yum, yum. That’s all I can say here, Averie!
    Despite mosquitos and poison ivy, I love picking wild raspberries! Every summer I pray we get plenty of wild raspberries, so far last 2 years have been great. Hope this summer I will pick plentiful as well! Thanks for this awesome recipe! Gonna make it! Pinned and stumbled…

  17. Crisps really are the ultimate comfort dessert. I always gravitate towards making them when I want a warm fruity lighter dessert. I love the raspberry peach combo. Top it with some vanilla ice cream and it’s the perfect summer dessert!

  18. Yep, this needs to happen to my face. And ASAP, too.

    I love crisps/cobblers — nothing is more summery to me, except maybe s’mores. But what s’mores lack, crisps make up for in that bright burst of fruit and that irresistible crunchy topping. Love the raspberry + peach combo!

  19. This looks divine, Averie! I love fruit crisps, but have never tried the peach-raspberry kind. I must add this one to my list! :D

  20. Fruit crisps are my absolute weakness Averie! I especially love peach crisps over vanilla ice cream. So good! And I can imagine adding raspberries puts it over the top. I just made a peach pie yesterday. Loving all the fresh summer fruits right now!

    1. Oh you made a pie, well, that’s awesome! I haven’t had any time for anything like that (I am not a great pie crust maker) and so crisps are so much faster for me but there’s nothing better than homemade peach pie. WOW!

  21. The colors in this look amazing, and there’s nothing like a delicious fruit crisp for a summer dessert!

  22. Crisps are one of my favorite treats! Their versatility is perfection. I can’t resist diving in almost as soon as it comes out of the oven.

  23. This is so pretty! I love these desserts in the summer with lots of fruit! And definitely agree that frozen fruit is the cheapest to cook with! I love the flavor combo of raspberry and peaches – perfection! Pinned!

  24. I haven’t done a crisp in so long. Thank you for the inspiration. Love the colors and the way you shot this. Pinning!

  25. So pretty!! I love crisps!! I’ll be making this one with a nice spray of fat free reddi whip on top! Yum!

  26. I haven’t made a crisp in such a long time. This looks fantastic! It is an easy dessert and my family happens to LOVE crisps. I have never used raspberries but I love the idea of the sweet with the sour and anything with an oatmeal crumble is awesome! Like Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives always says “You could smear that on a flip flop and eat it!” I think he would say the same thing about an oatmeal crumble topping! ;-)

    1. I love that quote from Guy and I love that you’re watching DDD’s since I know you could eat precisely zero diner food but I love that show, too :)

  27. This crisp is gorgeous Averie! Love the raspberry and peach combo- it sounds incredible! The pretty bright color makes this the perfect summer dessert – pinning :)

  28. I have raspberry bushes and I struggle to use them all every year. I should make more crisps/crumbles/cobblers….what’s the difference anwyay?

    1. Crisps – I think of like this, with a ‘lighter’ oaty topping
      Crumbles – I think of with a much heavier, bigger pebbles, more pronounced oat/flour/butter topping, like on a crumb cake
      Cobblers – I know in the traditional sense they’re meant to be like a pile of fruit with big dollops of biscuit dough dolloped on, then baked. They’re southern in the most traditional sense, and so the biscuit dough fits right in

  29. This is super gorgeous Averie! And the colors are so pretty. Your memories made me smile. :)

  30. I love crisps, cobblers and anything with a crust, ok, I really like any dessert except flan. This is a great combo of fruits. I love how you mix fruits together, Averie. I don’t think about putting these two together or the Peach Mango Banana Bread. I find your recipes so inspiring.

    1. Well that’s nice of you to say, Paula! I appreciate it! And mostly it just stems from having made single-flavored things already. After 5 years, I feel like I really need to think outside of the box to not remake what I’ve already made :)

  31. I love fruit crisps especially the edges where the fruit juices kinda caramelize and get sticky so good…I agree with your daughter I love the bright red berries and their juices your pictures are awesome as always..can’t wait to try.

  32. I love any kind of fruit crisp over pie– and it’s definitely because of the crumble topping. I’ve never had a raspberry crisp–what a great berry to use with peaches. There are some raspberries growing at the outer edge of my back yard–but they are tiny and pretty sour, so I’ll go with frozen any day. Your crisp looks beautiful–the red is so vibrant!

    1. I’m jealous you have raspberry bushes! That’s such a midwest/summer thing for me…I will always miss those bushes of my dad’s!

  33. I love crisps! They also remind me of childhood, although we called them
    ‘crunches’. We had a huge strawberry patch and just a few raspberries. Since the raspberries were more scarce, they became my favorite—-and still are. I have never mixed them with peaches. Thank you for the idea. Your photos
    are wonderful!

    1. Thanks for the compliments, Carol, on the images. If you could have only seen it in person. So pretty! I love that you had a strawberry AND raspberry patch – now that’s awesome!

  34. that crumbly topping looks SO phenomenal! love everything about this crisp! yum!!

  35. I have great memories of all kinds of crisps…there’s something special about them! I love the combination of raspberry and peach.

  36. Peaches are sooo good in desserts. I love crisps and this one looks lovely. I too associate berry picking and mosquitoes with summer, don’t really have either of those anymore in SD but I am glad for the lack of mosquitoes here. I do however, miss our mulberry tree :)

  37. I’m soooooobin love with that colour it’s unreal. I have to make this. Uses one of my most favourite flavour combos EVER!!

  38. Wow, this crisp looks absolutely stunning! I know fruit crisps are so difficult to photograph, but your photos are just beautiful!! Love the peach raspberry combo, they’re perfect together!

    1. Wow, that means so, so much coming from you, Denise! Thank you! Wow, so appreciated since your photography is topnotch stunning.

      The sad part is that these images do NOT convey how pretty this was in person. I took a ridic amount of images, yet none really got what I wanted to capture. I mean, they’re ‘fine’, but you know what I mean. When food in person has that total vibrancy that you just cannot quite get. Almost, but not quite :)

  39. The bright colors of this crisp are truly mesmerizing!! This looks amazing – and I don’t know why I’ve never tried using frozen berries, since that would mean being able to make a crisp at any time during the year! Beautiful :)

  40. Crisps are the best part of summer. We can use whatever fruit we like and the dessert is ready in a short time. Love the color in yours, looks delectable!

  41. This is my kind of summer dessert: fresh fruit, crumble topping and a spoon straight to the pan! What? Yes, no plate necessary!

  42. Yummm!!!!! Fruit crisps are one of my favvvvve desserts!!!!! Especially when you’re making the crisp with fresh, seasonal fruits!!!!! It just takes the whole experience to another level! I have never combined peaches and raspberries together and now I guess is the perfect time to do so! <3

  43. Oh, this just sounds AMAZING. I love crisps — apple crisp is my favorite, but peach crisp is a very close second. I’ll definitely have to give this a shot sometime this summer!

  44. This is the perfect summer recipe! It looks so good and I love everything with peaches in it!

  45. I love a great crisp with fresh or frozen fruit. I have to agree with you on the berries at Trader Joe’s – awesome price. Love this, Averie.

  46. Crisps are the best part about summer!! All the gorgeous fruits turned into crisps! Bliss.

  47. Averie, this is so gorgeous! I have great memories of my mom making summery crisps too! I can’t wait for peach season to arrive :)

  48. This crisp looks wonderful! I have a bunch of fresh apricots from my parents tree, and don’t quite have the motivation to make a pie today, but I was just thinking a crisp would be perfect. Now I’m even more convinced that I need a fruit crisp in my life ASAP!
