Blackberry, Peach & Hazelnut Crumble

Whenever we're together, times flies.

Our days are usually filled with checking work projects off our list (we love lists), followed by good, long mind-clearing walks, and finished with a delicious dinner in the company of good friends.

But not all the meals we cook together are elaborately prepared. In fact, few of the dinners or recipes we prepare at home for the people we love are overly complicated. Our secret? Using good quality, fresh ingredients.
Disclaimer: turning up the music a little bit louder and having a dance party in the kitchen always adds inspiration.

That’s why we love this recipe we developed for a summertime fruit crumble. While making this crumble is incredibly simple, it always turns out delicious. And no dessert looks more beautiful or is kinder to your body than a fruit-based dessert. When fruit is heated, the natural sugars caramelize making for a effortlessly healthy and delicious result.

Next time you're on "dessert duty" for a dinner party, pull this recipe out of your back pocket. It’s an absolutely yummy and guaranteed success.

Blackberry, Peach & Hazelnut Crumble


5 ripe peaches, sliced
2 pints blackberries
1 lemon
¼ cup all purpose flour
pinch of salt
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
¼ cup hazelnut flour
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup oats
1/3 cup hazelnuts, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 400 F.

For Fruit Filling:
In a large bowl, combine sliced peaches and blackberries with all purpose flour, zest of one lemon, juice of half a lemon, and pinch of salt. Set aside.

For Crumble Topping:
In a medium sized bowl, combine softened butter with hazelnut flour, brown sugar, oats, and hazelnuts.

Spread fruit into a deep casserole dish, and sprinkle with topping.

Bake for about 40 minutes or until fruit is bubbling and topping is golden brown. Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

Enjoy, preferably with those you love.
