    Blueberry and Peach Granola Crisp!

    At the Governor’s House Inn, we love to share great recipes with our guests and followers.  If you’ve got a craving for a delicious fruit-filled dessert, then you should definitely try out this blueberry and peach granola crisp, from the local palate:


    A simplified version of a classic cobbler, chock full of fresh peaches and blueberries.


    Fruit Mixture

    • 3 ripe peaches, pitted, peeled, and sliced
    • 1 cup fresh blueberries, washed
    • 1/2 lemon, juiced
    • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
    • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg


    •  1 cup granola
    • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • Pinch Kosher salt
    • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cubed

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss the fruit mixture together into a greased cooking pan until evenly combined. Add the topping ingredients in a mixing bowl, cutting the butter into the dry ingredients until you get a coarse crumble. Spread the topping over the top of the fruit mixture and bake for 30_40 minutes or until browned and crispy. Cool slightly before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.
