"I personally don't like pie crust. I want the fruit, not the crust (and fat and calories). This has less fat but still gives you the satisfaction of a crust. I also eyeball filling ingredients so they are guesstimates."

"I didn't read the other reviews until after I made this. I just added the omitted sugar in the topping to taste and it came out great. I used brown sugar for the filling and white for the topping and some local butter...Yum! My husband hates pies but loved this. He normally can't stand pie because of the crust so this was perfect. Thanks Holly!"
"YUM! this looks sooo good, but I can't cut it yet, made it for visitors tomorrow night, I shall return when it is cut and tasted!! I should tell you now though, the ingredients for the topping is missing the amount of sugar, it is mentioned in #3 of the instructions to add it, I used about a quarter cup of splenda, and becel margarine instead of butter and had to double the amount of flour to reach a point where it would crumble. I also used splenda in place of sugar in the filling. Nice idea using oat bran instead of oat flakes."
"This is a wonderful recipe. I have always used glass pyrex to bake this in. The only problem I have experienced was sticking to the bottom of the glass; although the kid(s) enjoyed scraping the leftovers that remained in the dish. Have recently gotten rid of the cookware, which by the way was passed down through generations, and replaced it with Lincoln Pie Pan from online retailer ChefFirst.com. Now it's easily removed from the pan. Really to bad for the kids tho'. LOL"
"This is really good although now I wish I would have omitted the nutmeg. I felt that spice came thru a bit too much. I followed Derf's advice about the amount of sugar to add in the topping ingredients as it isn't listed. Also, took her advice and nearly doubled the amount of flour to make enough to scatter over all the peaches. A great peach crisp that deviates from the normal using the oatbran. A nice switch-up."
