sweet treat.

attention: starving students.  the only thing sweeter than these baked peaches is the price of them!

what's better than a healthy version of a delicious classic?  a cheap and healthy version of a delicious classic, of course!  what do you do when you score a bag of 6 perfectly intact peaches for 99 cents?  make a delicious peach and blueberry crisp. what's the best way to top your warm, juicy fruits? with a sweet, crunchy, nutrient- filled topping!  

the goodies:

- 6 peaches
- 1 c. blueberries

- 1 c. old fashioned oats
- 1/4 c. maple syrup
- 2 tbsp. canola oil
- 1/4 c. ground flaxseed
- 1/4 c. uncooked millet
- cinnamon
- salt

the fun part:

* preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

#1.) grease and set aside a 8 x 8 pan.

#2.) cut peaches into bite-sized pieces and mix with blueberries.  toss in your ready-to-go pan.

#3.) prepare crust: mix all 'topping' ingredients together in a separate bowl.  distribute evenly over fruit.

#4.) bake for 30 minutes.  check on the bubbling-peaches/browning-topping status.  bake for longer if needed!

#5.) scoop into cute little mugs and hand them out to your friends.  sharing is caring!

what your body will like:

#1.) vitamin A: if you've been making your hands turn orange by eating too many carrots, why not switch it up and get some vitamin A from peaches?  in addition to improving your eyes sight late into the night, this charming vitamin will do wonders for your immune system.  no sick days for you!

#2.) non-glutinous: for all you celiac/gluten-intolerant kiddies out there, this is a crisp is a gluten-free zone!  millet is a delicious ancient grain that is full of purpose: fiber + complete protein + crunch.  really, what more could you ask for?  toss these seeds in, and you've got all of the above!
