Ginger Peach Crisp

This ginger peach crisp is full of flavor and the perfect use for all your summer peaches. The ginger twist packs a punch in the flavor department and is delicious served plain or with a giant scoop of ice cream.

The other day at the gym we were talking about peaches and how they are one of the best summer friends. We all talked about our favorite ways to enjoy them and in the dessert category, I was straight up torn between peach crisp or peach ice cream. Peach ice cream is a straight up nostalgic love for me. My grandfather would have it at most family gatherings and it was always the kid’s job to churn the ice cream. However, crisp is a straight up all my life love. It’s so easy to make and is so good eaten fresh out of the pan. Especially the edges because I love how the topping gets extra crispy.

I also think that peach crisp tastes even better with a giant scoop of ice cream on top – so good! 

So, while I didn’t have the time to make up peach ice cream for this post I instead went the ginger peach crisp route. But, not just any old regular peach crisp this crisp threw in a little ginger. Yes, ginger. I love how it packs BIG TIME flavor and is probably hanging out in your fridge right now. I feel like ginger is one of those ingredients people buy, use once and then have a knob just sitting in the fridge with no plans for future use. Well, not anymore. This crisp is the perfect addition for your lonely ginger! Oh, and I threw in some vanilla bean paste too because what is dessert without vanilla?

The topping on this crisp is perfect too. It made with oats and lots of brown sugar so it gets perfectly crisp and sweet.
