Peach and Hazelnut Crumbles

"This is based on a recipe from Better Homes and Gardens Australian Diabetic Living Issue 14 2008 with some alterations. I have made this once and due to not making notes while making times to make have been estimated. Like this with a dollop of thick greek vanilla yoghurt."

Ready In:
2 crumbles


  • 200 g peach slices in juice, drained (reserve juice)
  • 2 teaspoons peach juice (reserved)
  • 14 cup peach juice (reserved)
  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnuts (peeled and toasted, see note in directions and coarsely chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup (I used sugar free)


  • Preheat oven to 160 degree celsius.
  • Divide drained peaches (if large slice finer) between 2 small oven proof dishes.
  • Roast hazelnuts - put on a tray and roast in a 160 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes and then removed and place in a clean towel and rub to remove skins (In doing this I removed about 1/2 the skins and just coarsely chopped the nuts in a mini processor with skins that were left on and it was still good).
  • Mix hazelnuts with oats in a small container.
  • Mix 2 teaspoons of reserved juice and maple syrup and heat in a microwave proof container (about 20 seconds at 50% heat in a 900 Watt microwave) - the original recipe suggested heating in a small pan, my suggestion if you do not have a microwave is put the maple syrup and juice in a heat proof container and heat in a water bath on top of the stove.
  • Add the syrup/juice mixture to the oat and hazelnuts and mix well and then divide this mix over the peaches.
  • Put into the oven and cook for 20 to 25 minutes until crispy and brown.
  • Heat up 1/4 cup of reserved juice (again I suggest the microwave - 20 seconds in 900 watt microwave) or place juice in heatproof container and heat in a water bath on stove top.
  • Pour heated juice equally over crumbles.
  • Serve with a scoop of low-fat icecream or a vanilla low-fat or diet yoghurt.

    This made for a lovely simple brekky served alongside some vanilla yoghurt. I used some hazelmeal I had on hand with the oats and used the microwave for most of the heating which made it simple to make! Thanks Pat!

    I had to use apples for this but crumbles are pretty versatile and this one was great ! The apple worked well with the crumble ingredients and adding the juice to the dry ingredients was a new take for me and I had a fabulous result.

    For those who are watching the caloric or sugar intake, this is a divine dessert option, easy to assemble and with items one might keep in the pantry. I don't have a microwave and simply mixed the juice and syrup together without heating as stated in step 5. I don't think that had any impact on the results as the two liquids blended just fine. I was tempted to add cinnamon to the peaches but glad I did not as I think it would have clouded the crisp flavor of the twice toasted hazelnuts. Scrumptious! Made for Photo Tag!

    Now this is a wonderful peach dessert that is easy to put together! I served it up with a creamy peach yogurt & topped it off with just a very small drizzle of some homemade chocolate syrup! OUTSTANDING ~ Thanks so much for sharing your recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
