Labor Day Crisp

Happy Labor Day!

On our way to Benicia yesterday, we stopped at a produce stand called Pedrick Produce and picked up a bag of 6 nectarines (for only $3!!) and Raspberry Honey almonds. So tasty! Its like a farmers market available every day of the week.

Pedrick Produce
So many amazing vegetables and fruits!

The nectarines weren’t too happy staying in the car all day while we played in Benicia, so we decided to eat them all right away. Enter the nectarine crisp! I adapted the recipe I found here based on what I had in my cupboard. I substituted the flour for additional oats and added coconut oil as an additional binder in place of some of the butter. I also chose to not add sugar to the nectarines because fruit is already sweet enough for me!

Boy did this smell good while it was cooking! Tasted pretty good too 🙂 We topped it with vanilla yogurt for breakfast, but it sure is sweet enough for a dessert if you had some vanilla ice cream on hand. It also came out of the oven pretty liquidy, but after letting it cool, the oats absorbed a lot of the juices = mmm!

I hope you enjoy your day off! Looks like we have some chicken tortilla soup and semi-homemade tortilla chips on the menu tonight. Stay tuned for that post tomorrow! But for now, I’m off to ride the pony and hit up a California Calisthenics workout afterward. Yay for days off!

What are your plans for Labor Day?
