Not too long ago, I was picking up a few things from the “dollar store” (Yes! Dollar store!) and I just happened to find these two ramekins (1 cup size) tucked back on a shelf. Well, there was no way I was leaving the store without them. So, when I got home I remembered a recipe that I had seen on Joy the Baker’s website and I thought these would be perfect for my own adaptation of that recipe.
I love a good peach crisp. Surprisingly enough, I love it even more in the morning. It goes great with a little vanilla yogurt on top and a cup of tea or coffee. Let me tell you….it’s good! Not to mention, awesome for a cute little breakfast for two.
Recipe: Serves 2
The ingredients for this recipe aren’t too complicated:
2 peaches (sliced)
1/2 cup of nuts (I used a mixture of pecans, walnut and sliced almonds)
1/2 cup of old-fashion oats
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of organic brown sugar (light)
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter (chilled and cubed)
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of ground all-spice
1/2 teaspoon of organic pure vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt
**Note – with some items I use organic products to ensure they are vegan/vegetarian, but you can substitute them if you don’t care.**
Put the flour in a bowl and add all of your dry spices into it. Give it a stir or two with a fork, and then work/mix the butter into your flour/spice mixture with your hands until the mixture looks like small little peas. Then thoroughly mix in your brown sugar, nuts, and vanilla.
Place your peaches into your oven safe ramekins and then pack on the mixture that you just made.
Place your dishes in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes (or whenever you’re ready for them), so your butter can get cold again.
Then preheat your oven at 350 degrees and get out a baking sheet. Line it with a sheet of parchment paper(this is to make sure your breakfast doesn’t bubble over and make a mess in your over).
Put your cute little ramekins on the baking sheet and let them cook for 20-30 minutes (depending on your oven).
If everything went as planned. They will come out looking like this. Let them cool for a few minutes and then eat them as is, or throw on some vanilla yogurt like me and enjoy!
