Fruity Fall Dessert – Peach and Cranberry Crunch

Peach Cranberry Crunch Recipe

This Thanksgiving I have been assigned to dessert duty, in addition to my normal lemon meringue pie I wanted to try something new this year. I decided to come up with a dish that was a little more on the healthy side using the new Del Monte Diced Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar. I didn’t want anything with a crust or frosting, so I started flipping through cookbooks for inspiration. I ended up mixing a few different recipes together and tweaking them a bit to come up with Peach and Cranberry Crunch. I gave it a trial run the other night and thought it turned out great. It was super easy to make and had really good flavor and texture.

The new Del Monte Diced Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar come in individual sized containers that have 70 calories each. While I used them for baking this time around, I also sampled them straight out of the container and thought they were really good. You could put these in a lunchbox or just keep them around for a snack.

I found them at WalMart along side a few other flavors including pear and mixed fruit. For details on my shopping trip check out my story on Google+.

    You know my family is always looking for healthier alternatives and often (like almost always) skip dessert because of this very reason. I wish I had seen this before Thanksgiving because they love these peaches and cranberries and this does look a lot healthier than all of those pies and cakes I see! Adding to the Christmas dinner list now!

  6. Yum…it looks delicious! I love the Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Peaches!
