Who else loves summer stone fruits??? I love them but the rest of my family is luke warm so this recipe was mostly for me 🙂 Savanna will tell you that she really loved the topping. Healthy Summer Stone Fruit Crisp is bubbling with sweet and tart summer stone fruits. It is dairy free, gluten free and has about a quarter of the sugar vs your average crisp recipe. This recipe is versatile and can be made with any combination of your favorite summer stone fruits.

I had planned on making my olive oil stone fruit cake from last year and bought extra fruit but I was in the mood for something lighter. I am in the middle of organizing my recipes into more categories and I realized I didn’t have any crisp recipes on my website and decided that must be fixed. Crisps are also super easy and fast to put together.

And if you never remember the difference between a crisp, crumble and cobbler I thought this would be helpful!
What is the difference between a crumble, crisp and cobbler?
A crumble is a dish of baked fresh fruit, with a streusel crumb topping. The topping is usually made with a dreamy combination of butter, flour and sugar, with the option to include nuts.
Like a crumble, a crisp is a baked fresh fruit dessert, but the streusel topping is less dense and typically includes oats. The oats will crisp up during baking, while crumble toppings stay more dense and cakey.
Cobblers get their name because the dollops of batter or biscuit dough are dropped on top of a bed of fruit, puffing up to look like cobblestone streets. (Who knew?!)
