Blueberry Peach Crisp
With fresh blueberries, juicy peaches, and a buttery crumble topping, this Peach Blueberry Crisp will quickly become your favorite dessert!
How it is that we’re in the last weeks of August? It seems like it was just yesterday that the seasons were changing, school ended for the year, and the 4th of July was still a long time away. Summer is quickly coming to an end, and fall is just around the corner.
I’m in denial, friends. Although I love fall, and everything having to do with apples and pumpkins, I’m ready to hang onto the warm weather just a teeny, tiny bit longer. Who’s with me?
In an effort to pretend that it’s only the start of summer, I decided to make a classic dessert that just screams warm weather and sunny days. This peach blueberry crisp is sure to delight your senses and fill you up with summer memories in every bite.
With fresh blueberries and juicy peaches tossed with cinnamon and sugar, and a buttery crumble topping, this peach blueberry crisp will quickly become your favorite dessert. And if you’re anything like me, crisps make you weak in the knees. I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Don’t judge, guys, it’s seriously that good!
I decided to incorporate blueberries, as well as peaches, since they’re so delicious this time of year. I will be sad to see the farmer’s markets end soon, so I’m taking advantage of the opportunity to use fresh produce whenever I can.
And the best part about this peach and blueberry crisp , besides the fruit? The topping! I used old-fashioned oats and rice krispies cereal for the crisp layer. Combined with melted butter, brown sugar, flour, and spices, this topping is irresistibly good. And it smells heavenly when baking, too!
Like most of my recipes, this crisp was a breeze to whip up! The hardest part was peeling the peaches, and trying not to pop the fruit into my mouth before it went into the dessert.
If you can restrain yourself long enough to let the easy blueberry crisp cool after it comes out of the oven, you will be rewarded with a deliciously fresh and sweet dessert, topped with a crunchy, buttery topping that satisfies your sweet tooth. I served mine with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, and quickly inhaled it. Go ahead, I dare you not to have a second piece!
Peach Blueberry Crisp Ingredients
This peach blueberry crisp is made with fresh peaches, juicy blueberries, and a good amount of cinnamon. Here’s what you’ll need to make this blueberry peach crisp with fresh peaches:
- Granulated sugar
- Ground cinnamon and nutmeg
- Old-fashioned oats
- Rice Krispies cereal
- All-purpose flour
- Light brown sugar
- Unsalted butter
How to Make Peach Blueberry Crisp
- Gently stir together the ingredients for the peach-blueberry filling. Turn into a greased 8×8-inch baking dish.

Should I Use Fresh or Frozen Blueberries?

How to Store Peach Blueberry Crisp
You can keep this peach and blueberry crisp loosely covered at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Tips for Making Peach Blueberry Crisp
Although fresh or frozen blueberries will work in this recipe, fresh peaches are a must. You may be able to use frozen peaches instead, but they’re often much firmer and less sweet than fresh peaches.
I baked this peach and blueberry crisp in an 8×8-inch baking dish, but you can also use four 5-inch mini cast iron skillets. This would be a great option if you’re hosting a small dinner party!
Note that instant oats and steel cut oats won’t work in the crisp topping. Old-fashioned oats (or rolled oats) are what you should use here.

Well, I definitely need to be reminded of summer, Gayle, because I’m having two this year! (Australia followed by the UK next month) Weird!
Anyway, love that you’ve combined blueberries with peaches … and that you added some rice krispies, too. Well, why not?!
I’m jealous that you get to enjoy two summers, Helen! I agree, weird, yet fun!
I’m with you, Gayle! Today is my first day back teaching and I like that, but I’m not into the temps getting cooler. So let’s hang on to awesome summer desserts like this a bit longer, please! Nothing better than a fruit crisp. Yum!
I hope you have a great first day back, Mir! Hopefully this fruit crisp will help the weather stay a bit warmer and the cold from creeping in too soon!
I’m kind of excited about fall too. Honeycrisp apples and butternut squash? BUT but but…with heriloom tomatoes and corn. Can you arrange that? haha, I’m not willing to give everything up. This looks delicious and I just made a peach dessert too. so good.
Ha ha that sounds like quite a combination, Bri! Maybe with the squash, but the apples might be a stretch! 🙂
I want to hang onto the warm weather longer, too! But the last couple weeks, early mornings here in Boston have been 57 degrees… too cold for August! 🙁
This crisp is the perfect way to stay in summer a bit longer!!
That is too cold! It’s been cooler here at night, too. And while I like cool nights, just not ready for it quite yet! Thanks for the compliments, Sue!
Gayle this sounds so de-licious! I can honestly say that I have never made a Crisp before… pies, yes but not Crisps… I think now is the time I try one… this so looks yummy!… and I agree 1 million percent!!! with a million exclamation points! summer went wayyy too fast and I don’t want it to end yet either!
I’m glad you share my summer feelings, Michele! I love fall, but after that comes dreaded winter, and after the sub zero temps that I’ve had, it can stay away! 🙂 I hope you love this crisp if you try it! So easy to make!
I’ve totally been in the mood for a good crisp these days, like you were saying Fall is in the air, it doesn’t even seem like summer here! I love how you used Rice Krispies in your crisp, I’ve actually need tried that before. And I just love the blueberry/peach combo, can’t wait to try =)
Thanks, Laura! I could eat crisps any time of the year, but just tastes a little better during the summer. And aren’t the Rice Krispies a fun touch? Gives it a little extra crunchiness!
I love blueberry and peach anything! This crisp looks so delicious!
Thanks, Kelly! This was such an easy and delicious crisp to throw together. Peaches and blueberries are my favorite fruit, so it was almost a no-brainer to me to make this crisp!
Nooooo! Don’t talk about Summer being over! Boooo! lolz! I think it totally sucks because the weather where I live, hasn’t even felt like Summer in weeks. Thumbs down mother nature, but a total thumbs up to you and this recipe! Love blueberries and I’ve never tried a recipe like this before! I’m totally tempted now!
I like you’re thinking, Karen! I’m totally going to be saying thumbs down mother nature in the winter! That’s why I want summer to last just a tiny bit longer! I think you would love this crisp if you tried it! So easy to throw together and tastes amazing!
My mind is going to fall food already, but I’m still loving the summer weather and long days. Best of both worlds, right? This crisp is the best kind of summer dessert for me, and I love the blueberry-peach combination! It looks delicious, Gayle! 🙂
Definitely the best of both worlds, Marcie! I can’t wait to make apple and pumpkin desserts, I’ve already started dabbling with that! 🙂 Thanks for the kind words!
Hey, I’m with you on the Summer thing. However, Fall is one of my favorite seasons. This crisp looks delicious and I love the fruit combo. 🙂
Fall is one of my favorite seasons, too! Don’t get me wrong…I love it, just want the warm weather to last just a little bit longer! 🙂 Thanks for the kind words and for stopping by, Pat!
I love love love crisps! They are my favorite! This looks so good!
Thanks, Annie! Crisps are my favorite, too. They taste so fresh and are so easy to whip up!
Love crisps! Yes, I’m with you on holding on to summer a bit longer. I’m seeing pumpkin already and I’m just not ready, lol!
I’m almost, but not quite, ready for pumpkins…though I have started testing a few fall recipes out. But none are going up on my blog just yet! 🙂
I think I’ve been in denial over the end of summer ever since it started. Nothing says summer more than a fruity crisp though. Way to keep it going, Gayle!
Thanks for the encouraging words, Kathi! Crisps are definitely the way to go!
Crisps are my absolute favourite summer dessert. Plus, I think they’re just a great excuse to have a little scoop of ice cream too. Peaches and blueberries are just so vibrant right now and would be AMAZING with those crunchy, buttery crumbs. Excuse while I clean the drool of my keyboard 😉
You read my mind, Allison! Crisps are definitely the perfect excuse to have a big ‘ole scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. And peaches and blueberries together are crazy good, especially with the butttery topping!
I’m all about holding on to summer and this looks like the perfect way to do it!!
Thanks, Julie! I agree…nothing says summer more than a fresh fruit crisp!
What a gorgeous crisp! Not sure if I’d enjoy for dessert or breakfast.. how about both?! 😉
Both is definitely acceptable, Pamela! There’s fruit in it, so it can’t be that bad, right?! 🙂
I know, right?? I can’t believe fall is just around the corner. I also love everything about fall but I just wish summer could be longer 😉
Crisps are one of my favourite summer desserts. This recipe looks great!
Let’s hope that summer is here to stay through mid-September. Then the cool weather can brace us! 🙂 Thanks so much for the kind words, Olivia!
I completely agree with you, I wish summer could last longer it’s gone by waayyy to fast for me this year!
This blueberry crisp is definitely on my list of things to make and soon! I love your dishes in these pictures too, so pretty! Pinning this one!
I know! Why does summer always go by way too fast, and the winters seem to drag? Thanks so much for the kind words and pin, Danielle! All of my dishes in these pictures are from Target (except for the big casserole dish, i think that’s from Bed, Bath and Beyond). I buy a little at a time, and all of the pieces are usually under $4 or so…great to add to my blogging collection! 🙂
Blueberry and peach is the best combination! I’ll take a big bowl of this crisp, please!
Thanks, Ashley! I definitely agree with you, can’t go wrong with these super fruits!
I love blueberries and I love peaches and I LOVE this crisp Gayle. It looks amazingly moist and I bet it tastes even better. And I am secretly looking forward to Fall and apple picking and pie baking. 🙂
Thanks for the compliments, Kathy! It does taste amazing! 🙂 And I secretly can’t wait for those things either…in a few weeks, though! 🙂
Even though I have a weakness for fall food, like you, I am still trying to hang on to summer. I’ve been making berry crisps, cobblers, and pies pretty much every week to try to convince myself. LOL. This crisp sounds SO good, Gayle! I love the combo of blueberries and peaches. 🙂
We gotta hang onto summer while it lasts, right?! And I agree…making crisps and cobblers is a great way to still remind us of the summer, Sarah! Thanks so much for the kind words!
I’m not ready for summer to be over, but I’m ready for yummy crisps the one you featured today. I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert right now. 🙂
This totally counts as a balanced meal, Mary! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Down with pumpkin! Ha ha, I am hanging onto summer with every ounce of energy I have! This crisp looks like the perfect way to hang onto summer. Bet the peach-blueberry combo is lovely 🙂
Thanks, Denise! Blueberries and peaches are one of my favorite fruit combinations, and it pairs so well in this crisp!
This looks amazing! I love how crunchy the crisp looks!
The topping is my favorite part, Medha! Crunchy and full of flavor. Thanks for the kind words!
Oh my yes, I adore crisps and crumbles! The oats and fruits and caramelized juices and sugars is just incredible. I love this fruit combo too!
I’m glad you love crisps and crumbles, too! Definitely a favorite dessert of mine. And using blueberries and peaches was such a tasty combination!
I love fall and all that comes with it, but I am sad for summer to end. Kids go back to school tomorrow. I am trying to use as many summer fruits and vegetable before they are gone. This crisp looks delicious and I love the peach and blueberry combo.
Kids going back to school definitely marks the unofficial end of summer, and I’m sad to see it end, too. But hopefully with this crisps and other fruits, you can hang onto summer just a little bit longer, Cindy!
Unfortunately I don’t have much of a choice about hanging onto summer. It doesn’t usually cool down here until about mid October. As much as I love the summer, I’m so looking forward to the cool fall temperatures, and the pumpkins! The only way I can enjoy the rest of summer is if I have a big bowl is this crisp! It is so vibrant and looks amazing! I love fruity desserts in the summertime!
You do have a late summer, Izzy! And I can imagine that you would be looking forward to the cooler temps sooner, rather than later. Thanks so much for the compliments! Crisps really do remind me of summer, especially when I use fresh produce from the farmer’s markets. Doesn’t get much better than that!
I SOOOOOO agree with you on not being ready to say goodbye to summer fruits just yet! The last of the peaches and plums are making an appearance in the markets and I’m trying to stuff my face with as many helpings of these beautiful jewels before they disappear until next summer! I sooooo have to make this crisp while these fruits last at home! It looks stunning and delish Gayle!!!!! <3 I'm loving the crumble of oats and rice krispies that you've used!!!!!!!! Yummmmm!
I definitely wish summer could last just a bit longer, Samina! Thanks for the kind words! The topping is my favorite part of this crisp (besides the fresh fruit). I think you would love this! So easy to whip up!
I won’t judge if you let me eat it with you for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Sounds amazing. I love fruit crisps. The colors in your pictures look gorgeous. You have such great lighting where you take your pictures. 😉
Ok you have my permission to eat this crisp for each and every meal! 🙂 Thank you so much for the photo compliments! That totally made my day, as my pictures are still pretty rough and I’m learning as I go along!
This looks so crunchy and gooood!! I love blueberries and peaches together! 🙂
Thanks, Jocelyn! Blueberries and peaches are my favorite fruit combination!
Blueberry peach crisp is one of my favorite desserts – I could totally eat it for breakfast, too! I love the combo of peaches and blueberries so much…especially this time of year when they are in season. So perfect for summer!
I could too…it makes a great breakfast! 🙂 Thanks, Keri!
Blueberry and peach is one of my favorite combinations! Love the recipe and the new photos are gorgeous! Pinned to try it!
Thanks for the sweet comment and pin, friend!
Crisps and crumbles are so much fun with all of the gorgeous fruit that summer provides! Thanks for re-posting! Beautiful!
Thank you, Annie!
Blueberries and peaches are MADE for each other! When our peach trees had tons of ripe fruit a few weeks ago, I made a blueberry peach cobbler that was so delicious.
Love your updated photos, and that crisp topping looks so buttery and good! The Rice Krispies are a great idea. 🙂
Thank you, Blair! I would love to have a peach tree one day…how fun!
I’m just loving all of these photo updates, Gayle! There’s just something about your photography that makes me instantly hungry! 🙂 You’re totally right about fruit crisps just screaming summer–and “I’m hungry!!” in my book. 😉 Love the new pics! Can’t wait to see what you update next. Pinned! Have an awesome weekend, my friend. 🙂
Thank you, Demeter!
