Anyone still loving on the final peaches and berries of the season? We’re still enjoying the last hurrah of peaches and nectarines around here. We also just finished up a major feast on berries our family hand-picked from a local farm. Several friends and all our kiddos had quite the exciting day, filling up boxes with fresh-picked strawberries and raspberries.
You would think that a mountain of freshly picked berries would result in a baking extravaganza in our kitchen. It didn’t. Because my berry monsters ate them all.
There is such a thing as getting too much fiber, and knowing this, I tried to intervene. My intervention was a bust. Little – and big – hands kept sneaking into that berry heap, and before I knew it, the berries vanished within 48 hours.
If you are one of the peeps who saw our cargo of berries when we left the farm, you know the craziness I speak of.
It’s all good, though, because these scrumptious bars I’m sharing with you today are made not with raspberries, but blueberries. From the market 🙂
If you love raspberries, these fabulous Berry Pie Bars are your ticket to tummy bliss. I was really craving cooked peaches this time, and opted for these awesome peach ‘n blueberry bars. I think my last peach action was Peaches with Honey Crostini. Which, by the way, was beyond great.
These peach bars are my way of relishing these luscious stone fruits before they’re gone.
These Peach and Blueberry Crumb Bars are all you’d want in a decadent dessert bar. They are perfectly juicy, brimming with ripe peaches and blueberries cooked to perfection.
The fruit filling pairs beautifully with warm spices of cinnamon and nutmeg.
The filling sits on a crust that is wonderfully buttery and melt-in-your-mouth delish.
All of it is amply topped with a crispy, crumbly, mouthwatering topping that boasts a toothsome texture.
I stole a couple of these beautiful bars so I could experiment with how well they freeze. I’ll have to update you on that after I defrost them and gobble them up for breakfast.
If one of you beats me to it, let us all know how well these beauties keep in the freezer. Because wouldn’t it be awesome to have a few on hand whenever the craving calls!
