You’re going to feel peachy perfect after eating this one. We’ve taken a healthy twist on the classic Peach Crisp. Here’s what makes this version delicious and tasty:

  • Peaches, obviously. This key ingredient is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but you already knew that. When it comes to peaches, there’s more than just meets the eye. Peaches are a great source of fibre, providing both insoluble and soluble fibre. Insoluble fibre helps prevent constipation and soluble fibre provides food for good bacteria.
  • Maple syrup, eh? It’s a great alternative to white and brown sugar because it has a lower glycemic index. This means that it doesn’t spike blood sugar as fast - preventing that dreaded sugar crash.
  • Oats are in it. This whole grain is heart-healthy. Oats have fibres, including beta-glucans which research shows can help lower cholesterol and manage blood sugar levels. Even antioxidants, specifically those which are only found in oats, are found to lower blood pressure.
  • What’s with the hemp seeds? They’re loaded with healthy fats, protein and nutrients like vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc. They’re a great source of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), which is a skin saviour and can even help regulate PMS and menopause symptoms.

The perfect dessert or snack, this Peach Crisp is perfect for any occasion!

    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • vanilla yogurt or ice cream to top (optional)
