I am not a huge fan of cooked peaches, but my husband loved this dish. We were both surprised by the banana, it was quite good. You can substitute any fruit or berries in this recipe for a change. I am curious to try adding some chopped walnuts to the topping as well. Because this is so much lower in added sugar than most crisps, it can be a good mid-day snack. But for a real treat, we add a topping of Vanilla soy ice cream.
