Individual peach blueberry crumble taste like summer in your own little bowl!
I made you some summer in a dish. And the whole thing is for you!
Am I the only one with portion control problems? I cannot have large quantities of sweets in the house. Can’t be trusted. Too tempting. But I have a sweet tooth and so I need a little fix here and there. I get twitchy if there’s not something sweet around for me to have.
And a fruit crumble is one of my favorite desserts, particularly in the summertime when the fruit is so fresh and so juicy. I also love how well peaches and blueberries go together. They just get along. BFF forever.
But when I make a whole pie plate or casserole full of a crumble, I end up eating it all day long, every day. I have it for dessert of course, sometimes with ice cream, but it doesn’t stop there. I’ll dollop some Greek yogurt on it and call it breakfast: fruit, oats and yogurt, right? Totally counts. I’ll also have a few spoonfuls for snack in the afternoon, straight from the fridge cause I even love it cold. It sits there whispering my name until it’s gone. (Which happens way too fast.)
So my quick-fix is these individual ramekins for peach blueberry crumble. Portion control built in.
I can make just 2 little fruit crumbles (maybe not so little) and poof, they are gone at the end of the night and I can have a normal, proper breakfast in the morning.
On the other hand, I must confess that I have made these 4 times in the last 8 days. 😳
The first time for fun since I had the peaches and blueberries. The second time because I really needed to have another one. The third and fourth times it was because my husband wanted them again. And again. I certainly wasn’t going to say no. They are so tasty!
The peaches and blueberries here make a sweet, syrupy base for the buttery oat crumble that covers the top. You get the perfect bite in every spoonful. (Oh, and if you avoid gluten, you can use certified gluten-free oats and sub any alternative flour in this recipe; it’s just 1 tablespoon so it doesn’t really matter what you use.)
You also can double or triple this recipe to suit your needs. These make a lovely way to serve dessert if you have friends or family over.
An enormous fruit crumble is tasty, but not always very attractive when spooned out and slopped onto a plate or bowl. But you place this cute all-in-one dessert in front of everyone at the table, topped or served with a scoop of ice cream (even easy homemade ice cream at that!), and you’ve got a little summer beauty on your table. 😍
Pick up some fresh peaches and blueberries and make yourself a little fruit crumble. And if it’s really just for you, you can halve the recipe (boo, don’t do it) or you can make both of these and save one for breakfast! Just saying…

Individual peach blueberry crumble
Individual peach blueberry crumbles taste like summer in your own little bowl!
For the fruit mix:
- 2 peaches, peeled, pitted and diced
- ½ cup blueberries
- 1-2 teaspoons sugar (see notes)
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
For the crumble topping:
- ¼ cup oats (I use old-fashioned)
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon flour (I use white whole wheat but any kind is fine)
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 375. Coat two ramekins with cooking spray.
- In a small bowl, mix the peaches and blueberries with the sugar and lemon juice. Divide evenly between the two ramekins.
- In a separate bowl, mix the oats, sugar, flour and melted butter, stirring to ensure everything is well-coated. Top each ramekin with the oat crumble mixture.
- Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before eating (cause it will be HOT!)
- Top with ice cream, whipped cream or yogurt, if desired, and enjoy!
I almost always only need 1 teaspoon of sugar here because the fruit is so ripe and so sweet on its own. Taste yours and if you think it needs a little extra help in the sweetness department, go for 1 ½ or 2 teaspoons of sugar in the crumble.

Never tried this fruit combination (peaches & blueberries), but your recipe looks promising. Thank you for sharing!
Oh you gotta try it! Peaches and blueberries were made for each other 🙂 Hope you give it a go!
Olivia @ livforcake
You are definitely not the only one with portion control problems! Most of the stuff I bake goes into the freezer or out to friends. Out of sight out of mind! I love these individual desserts, and the combo of peach and blueberry. Delicious!
Whew, good to know I'm not alone - thanks Olivia! Yes, the freezer is always stocked and I also try to pawn off lots of extras - can't be trusted with it in the house 🙂 Have a great weekend!
Meredith @ The Weekday Gourmet
Looks delicious! I was trying to figure out something to do with my blueberries in the fridge. Do you think I could use quick oats?
Hey Meredith! Yes, I think you could definitely swap in quick oats here. I use old fashioned because that's what I always have around, but quick would work, too. Hope you give it a go! Thanks for stopping by!
Chris @ SimpleFood365
There has never been a fruit crumble or crisp that I didn't like and these look great! I love the single serving sizes but I am afraid I might eat more than one. Lol.
Yes! That's what I'm talking about 😉 Thanks for stopping by, Chris!
I love this combo! Looks yummy! Thanks for sharing!!
Thanks Felesha! They are SO tasty 🙂
Sam @ SugarSpunRun
I definitely have major problems with portion control, so these beautiful, delectable individual crumbles would be perfect for me! So cute!
Thanks Sam! They are a cute, fun little dessert - and definitely save me from going overboard on dessert 🙂
Neli @ Delicious Meets Healthy
This peach & blueberry crumble looks scrumptious! Yum!
Thanks Neli - they are SO good!
Tonia from TheGunnySack
I think I just drooled a little when I looked at your pictures of this dessert!
Thanks Tonia! They are definitely drool-worthy 🙂
Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary
I have serious portion control and food hoarding issues. #FoodBloggerProblems. So I have an abundance of blueberries hanging out in my fridge AND a few peaches chilling out on the counter, just begging to be turned into this crumble! This looks terrific, my dear! However, I'll probably eat like 7 of the individual ones.... again portion control issues. Lol but at least I can hide the evidence! Cheers and happy weekend!! <3
And this is why I love you, Cheyanne! I may or may not make these and not tell my husband and keep them hidden in the fridge for me. 🙂 Or double the recipe and make 4, but pretend like we only have the 2... Can't help it. Hope you're having a great weekend!
You've reminded me that I really don't make crumbles as often enough as I should. The combination of peach and blueberry sounds really wonderful especially when combined with the crunchy topping.
Glad I could inspire you to get your crumble on, Amanda! You'll love this combo 🙂
Steph @ Steph in Thyme
Food in mason jars and ramekins make the world go round. Love these individual servings!
I know, right? I have an embarrassing collection of mason jars stashed for dressings, jams, overnight oats, salads, granola, you name it. And then ramekins, well, swoon - good for so many things! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Dawn @ Words Of Deliciousness
I love the peach and blueberry combination in this crumble. Also I love the individual dessert like this. Looks so yummy!
Thanks Dawn! Peaches and blueberries are probably my favorite summer fruit combo - particularly when you add a little sugar and an oat crumble topping 🙂
Kathryn @ FoodieGirlChicago
I love crumbles and I love individual serving desserts so this recipe sounds perfect! Love the peach and blueberry flavor combo!!
Thanks Kathryn! It's a perfect little summer single-serving dessert 🙂
A fruit crumble in the summer is a must for me! Yours looks simply beautiful, especially paired with that dollop of ice cream!
Thanks Julia! I'm so with you on that - fruit crumbles are always on my summer food bucket list 🙂
Lauren @ Create Bake Make
I think making these in individuals portions is a brilliant idea, that way I don't have to share my dessert with anyone else! Thanks for linking up with us for Fabulous Foodie Fridays, have a great weekend 🙂
Haha, exactly! No sharing! Thanks for hosting such a lovely party Lauren! I hope you guys have a blast at the conference 🙂
love these cute crumbles.. a perfect treat for my kids..
Thanks Fareeha! Yes, they would be a great little treat for kids!
I love peach crumble and adding blueberries can only make even more delicious. The individual servings is a great idea. Visiting from Throuback Thursday. Pinning.
Peach + blueberries is a great combo! Thanks Beverly 🙂
They're darling! I like to make up a bunch of topping and have it in the freezer so I can make things like this whenever I have the odd bit of fruit around....or maybe just whenever!!
Thanks for sharing with us on Throwback Thursday!
Thanks Mollie! That's a great idea to have some topping on hand 🙂
Should these be baked directly on oven rack or on a baking sheet?
Hi Cheryl, I like to put the ramekins on a baking sheet just in case there are any drips or bubble overs. Hope that helps and hope you'll let me know what you think!
Looks delicious! What size ramekins did you use? Thanks!
Hi Joellen! Great question! I use the 4-inch diameter individual-style ramekins for these. Hope that helps!
For your comment above, I haven't tried making a crumble with nuts instead of oats, but I think that should work. Also, the 6 oz. ramekins should be fine. Hope that helps!
I have not tried using nuts in this recipe, so I'm not sure what adjustments might be needed. Would love to hear if you try it!
