Summer heat means peach season is here, and this year I’m celebrating with these peach pie crumble bars. They have a buttery, shortbread-like base; a layer of sweet, juicy peaches; and a delicious, oatmeal crumble topping. Then I added just a drizzle of sweet vanilla glaze.

These peach bars combine the 2 best peach recipes around – peach pie & peach crumble into one delicious, easy peasy, peach recipe.

The key to any recipe with fresh fruit is starting with the best produce around. You want peaches that are sweet, soft, aromatic, & extra juicy. The kind that you need to eat over the sink because there’s so much juice running down your elbows. And that’s exactly why I always opt for BC Tree Fruits peaches. Start with juicy, fresh peaches for making these peach pie crumble bars

They’re grown in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, and in season from late July til the first week in September. So when you’re grocery shopping, look for the BC Tree Fruits sticker so you know your peaches are premium quality.

These peach pie bars are so easy to make and such a perfect way to enjoy fresh peaches. The bars have 3 delicious layers – but the sweet, fragrant BC peaches are the star of the show.

The base is an easy shortbread recipe made from flour, powdered sugar, a little salt & melted butter. It gets pressed into the bottom of the pan and baked for about 15 minutes before the other layers go on top.

The middle layer is our juicy peaches. It’s basically a peach pie filling made with fresh BC peaches, cornstarch, sugar & a little lemon juice.Peach Pie Bars with an oatmeal crumble topping & vanilla glaze.

Then last but not least – the oatmeal crumble goes on top. It’s a crunchy oatmeal streusel with just a hint of cinnamon. Then the whole thing gets baked in the oven, and once they’re cooled it’s time to serve.

These peach pie crumble bars are delicious with a drizzle of sweet vanilla glaze or a scoop of ice cream. I also like them cold straight from the fridge.

They’re buttery, full of texture, and most importantly – filled with the juiciest Okanagan grown peaches. So head to the grocery store, look for the BC Tree Fruits sticker for the most delicious peaches around, then enjoy these peach pie crumble bars.Peach Pie Crumb Bars are filled with juicy peaches & topped with buttery streusel topping.
