Juicy, ripe peaches in a warm cinnamon/nutmeg scented crisp is the ultimate comfort food. Substitute peaches for other stone fruits like nectarines or plums, or a mix of any seasonal juicy fruits. This is very easy and quick to put together and a great way to enjoy those tender, flavorful and delicious peaches that have high levels of water and dietary fiber.
- Preheat oven to 190C/375F. Lightly butter a rectangular baking dish, about 25x15-cm / 10x6-inch. Toss the peaches with the lemon juice, zest, vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of whole grain speｌt flour. Spread peaches in the prepared baking dish.
- Stir together rolled spelt, almond slices, flour, sugar, spices, and salt in a bowl, and then work in butter with a pastry blender or your fingertips until mixture forms small clumps. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over fruit.
- Bake in middle of oven until topping is golden and peaches are tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool slightly and serve warm, dusted with icing sugar, if desired.
