Peach Crumb Bars

Peaches are one of those fruits that just scream summer. The smell alone is something rather intoxicating, reminiscent of picnics, playgrounds and ocean side daytrips. This recipe captures the magic of the peach and combines it with nutmeg and cinnamon, creating a spicy peach pie-like filling. The buttery crust is more on the crumbly side, which makes it a delightful substitute for coffee cake and, let’s face it, a really good excuse to eat dessert for breakfast (although not having an excuse has never actually stopped me from eating dessert for breakfast.) These bars are also perfect for potlucks or picnics, so feel free to spread the summery goodness with your friends and family.
