Ingredients

Filling

  • 5 cups peeled and sliced peaches*
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup raspberry jam

Crumb Layer

  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter melted

Instructions

Filling

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a 9 x 13 inch pan with parchment or foil.
  • Place the sliced peaches in a bowl and toss gently with the lemon juice.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the cornstarch brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle on top of the peaches and stir gently to combine. Set aside.

Crumb Layer

  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the melted butter.
  • Press 2/3 of the mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan, reserving the rest for the top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes and let cool a bit.
  • With a spoon or small spatula, spread the raspberry jam evenly over the bottom crust. Add the peaches with all their juices on top and distribute evenly. Sprinkle evenly with the remaining crumble.
  • Return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 30-40 minutes until the filling is bubbling (it must bubble to activate the cornstarch and allow the filling to set).
  • Cool completely (about 2 hours) and cut into bars.
