Blueberry Basil Peach Crisp

Summer is almost technically over, but it does not feel like Fall yet in Memphis. I’m using up the last of the peaches on sale in the supermarket while I still can. I had a sweet tooth, so I wanted something decadent but also nutrient dense. This crisp is full of antioxidants from blueberries and basil, potassium from the peaches, and some whole grain action with the oats in the crisp. Top with your favorite ice cream (you have to have ice cream!) or dairy alternative and enjoy!
