Peach and Blueberry Crumb Bars
These are delicious, and the perfect way to showcase that amazing summer fruit we have going on at the moment.
I actually used the last of my canned peaches from last year, but have also made this with fresh peaches and it works just as well (if you need tips on how to easily peel a peach, then pop over here for a tutorial.)
There is something about summer that just makes me crave sweet treats featuring the gorgeous fruit produce available, so expect lots more in the coming weeks. If you need some more inspiration then be sure to check out these little yummy bites featuring more blueberries and peaches:

Can you tell I have a couple of peach trees?
What Is So Good About These Bars?
Ok so these peach and blueberry crumb pie bars are:
- super easy to put together, I get my three year old to help, so it doubles as a quiet time activity when the littlest one is sleeping;
- full of fresh summer fruit;
- full of superfoods: blueberries, coconut oil and chia seeds ;
- use whole grains;
- store well in the fridge and travels well in a lunchbox;
- make a great little treat for little bellies
Plus they taste delicious, so you really can't go wrong.
What have you been whipping up with summer's bounty?

Peach and Blueberry Crumb Bars
- 8 tablespoon coconut oil at room temperature
- 1 ½ cups of chopped peaches
- 1 ½ cups blueberries
- 2 tablespoon coconut sugar
- 2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- ⅓ cup coconut sugar
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 375F
- Use 1 tablespoon coconut oil to grease an 8x8 baking dish
- Place the peaches and blueberries, 2 tablespoon coconut sugar and chia seeds into a small saucepan over med-low heat. Cook down for about 15 minutes, until the mixture starts to resemble a jam (and most of the liquid has cooked out). Mash the mixture every so often. Once cooked down, allow the fruit to cool for about 5 mins
- In a medium bowl, combine the flour, oats, coconut sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in the rest of the coconut oil and combine with a spatula. The mixture should be well mixed but crumbly
- Put half of the oat mixture into the greased dish and press down with the spatula, coming up about ¼ of and inch at the side
- Spoon the fruit mixture on top and spread evenly
- Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture on top, making sure to sprinkle it over as much of the fruit as possible. It does not have to be perfect, it does not matter if there are holes here and there
- Pop in the oven and bake for 30 mins
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely, before cutting into slices and serving

I've only made pie bars a couple of times but I've quickly fallen in love with him. I love that you let your three-year-old help, it's always nice to have your kids doing something like this in the kitchen. I'll definitely be sharing these. they look delicious!
Oh thank you Vanessa 🙂 My 3 year old just loves being in the kitchen - yesterday she was my chief helper in canning some peaches!!

Oh dear, these bars look delicious!! Can't wait till the peach season starts here as well! I went for a hike a couple of days ago. Along the way we picked some cherries - excellent already! Can't wait for more 😀
Oh we have two peach trees, so we are just drowning in peaches atm! How fun to be able to pick cherries on a hike - I have heard there are some wild blackberries along a bike path near my house, so we are going hunting for some this weekend 🙂
I love this combination of fruit and was looking for a recipe that's not too sweet. This one is perfect. It took longer to cook the filling than the recipe says but maybe because my peaches weren't overly ripe. I made it just as written but next time may try just a little freshly grated ginger in the filling and some finely chopped nuts in the topping. But I wouldn't hesitate to make it just as written again.
Oh yum, a little bit of ginger in there would be absolutely delicious! Yeah it can take a bit longer depending on how juicy the fruit is, I should probably mention that in the notes - thanks for pointing it out 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by to let me know how they went, I really love hearing about it, and the little personal touches you add!!
