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.

What’s in This Raspberry Peach Crisp? 

For this fresh peach crisp recipe, you’ll need: 

  • Fresh peaches
  • Raspberries
  • Granulated sugar
  • Cornstarch
  • Unsalted butter
  • Brown sugar
  • Old-fashioned (rolled) oats
  • All-purpose flour
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Whipped cream or ice cream, for serving (optional) 

How to Make Peach Crisp with Raspberries

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 Use Quick Oats in This Recipe? 

Definitely not! Quick oats and steel cut oats would both ruin the texture of this peach and raspberry crisp. Old-fashioned oats (aka rolled oats) are a must here.

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 Mango Coconut Oil Banana Bread — This bread is ridiculously moist, soft, tender, and bursting with tender peaches and juicy mangoes in every bite, with 4 bananas used for rich banana flavor.

Yield: 8 servings
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. Optionally serve with whipped cream, whipped topping, or ice cream.

  1. 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?

    • 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

  2. Delicious! I just love fruity desserts!

  3. 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 :)

  4. 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! ;-)

  5. These pictures are incredible, my mouth is watering thinking of making it! Thank you for sharing :)

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

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

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. The colors and beautiful fruit in this are so captivating!

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

  12. 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!

    • 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!

  13. 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

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

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

  18. 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!

  19. it looks delicious!

  20. love this, averie!! So gorgeous and summery (aka not too heavy)

  21. This is gorgeous! These colors are beautiful! Love this combination.

  22. 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!

    • 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 :)

  23. 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

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

    • 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!

  25. 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.
