Homemade Peach Streusel Crumb Bars are always a big hit when fresh peaches are in season. Delicious peach filling is sandwiched between a buttery, brown-sugar, and oat crust and a sweet streusel topping.
This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine. Sponsored items used in this post are from Wilton, Adam’s Extracts, and Dixie Crystals.
It’s my last recipe for #SummerDessertWeek! These Peach Streusel Crumb Bars are super yummy, easy to make, and a favorite in my house. Fresh Georgia peaches were used in this recipe! There is nothing like a sweet, juicy fresh peach to make one think of summer. We are fortunate that we can go right to the orchard to get the peaches when they are in season.
Since this is my last recipe for the week, I want to remind you to enter the giveaway (at the bottom of this post) and to check out all of the recipes from the week! There are so many that you’ll be pinning like crazy to make them this summer.
Wilton generously sent a huge goodie package and I used the square baking pan for these crumb bars. It was perfect and the design on the pan is super fun!
Adam’s Extracts sent vanilla and lemon extracts for us to try. I used the vanilla in the filling and the glaze. Their vanilla extract is the best.
Also, Dixie Crystals definitely is keeping me in stock with brown sugar. I used it in the crust and the crumb topping.
Tips to make this recipe:
This is probably the biggest tip – fresh peaches are definitely better in this recipe, but in a pinch frozen does very well. Thaw the peaches out and drain any liquid. I also will dab the peaches with paper towel to remove excess liquid.
The crust is pre-baked half-way and while it is in the oven, it’s the perfect time to make the filling.
Lining your baking pan with parchment paper (have some hang over the sides) will make removing the bars from the pan easy.
Chilling the bars for about two hours after they are baked (still in the pan) is an important step. You want the filling to set so you can cut them easily without the filling spilling out.
You can drizzle a glaze over the bars, or simply serve as they are. Freezer tip: The baked bars can be frozen for up to 3 months. Simply thaw in the refrigerator before serving.
Peach Streusel Crumb Bars #SummerDessertWeek
For the Crust & Topping
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats or quick oats
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 10 tbsp unsalted butter very cold and cubed
For the Filling
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 medium peaches peeled and chopped into small pieces (about 1.5 cups)
For the Glaze
- 1/2 cup powedered sugar
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment, leave an overhang on all of the sides so that you can easily lift the bars out of the pan before cutting. Spray with nonstick spray or grease with butter. Set aside.
- To make the crust and topping: In a large bowl, whisk the flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon together until combined.
- Cut in the cold butter using a pastry blender or two forks until it reaches coarse, pea-sized crumbs. Remove 3/4 cup of the mixture and put it in a small bowl, set aside.This will be for the streusel topping.
- Evenly press the remaining oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
- While the crust is baking, prepare the filling: Whisk the egg and sugar together until smooth and creamy.
- Add the flour and salt. Whisk until combined and then fold in the peaches.
- Remove crust from the oven after 15 minutes and pour the filling over hot crust.
- Sprinkle with reserved streusel topping mixture.
- Bake for 30-32 minutes or until golden brown on top. Allow to cool in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Transfer to the refrigerator and allow to chill for 2 hours. This will help the bars set and be easier to cut.
- Once chilled, lift the foil out of the pan using the overhang on the sides. Remove parchment paper. Place baked bars on serving plate.
- Prepare the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the powedered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together until smooth. Add another Tablespoon of milk to thin out if needed. Drizzle over each square.
