Recipe by Shelley H.
"I found this recipe calling for only apples or peaches, but found it worked wonderfully with any fruit you have available. Please experiment! If using primarily apples, try a bit of shredded cheddar cheese, sprinkled on top of crumble topping the last 10 minutes of baking. Tastes wonderful with vanilla ice cream."

Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced
fresh peaches - peeled, pitted, and sliced
Everything was good, especially the crumb topping. However, the granny smith apples aren't the best choice. Probably a Cortland or Macintosh apple would be better.
Didn't care for this recipe. I LOVE fruit crisps, but the banana flavors just did not work. I also would not recommend adding the water to the fruit...it made the fruit too soupy after baking. The topping was bland.
This was GREAT! I left out the apples and used about 5 very ripe bananas, and about 6 peaches. I did not need to add any water to the fruit mix. I added coconut to the crumble as someone else suggested. Everyone thought the banana/peach crisp was very unique and the flavours blended together beautifully. I have already made 2 more (and have requests from friends and family for more).
Excellent! My family loved this. I used 2 little packs of instant Raisin and Spice oatmeal instead of plain oats and it came out just as wonderful. A scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was heaven.
I made this with frozen peaches and frozen blueberries and it was very good. Even better heated up that night with ice cream. Thanks for sharing such a versatile recipe.
Used this recipe as my guide, but had to make a few changes based on the items I had on hand. I only had canned peaches & fresh nectarines. I put 2 cans of peaches in the baking dish, 1 with the juice, the other one drained, & added 2 fresh nectarines (sliced). I made the topping as instructed, but just before sprinkling over the fruit I mixed in about 1/2 cup of shredded coconut. Came out delicious!! Thanks for a great base recipe...one I'll have fun playing with!
I concur with others, this is a great way to use the fruit before it's to late. I used apricots, apples, nectarines, banana, blueberries & peaches. I did however, leave out the water as I had fruit that was pretty soft and very juicy.
Smells great baking. I agree with JosieV's comment regarding using Granny Smith apples; I even used (1) sweeter apple to balance it and the Granny's were still way too noticably tart.
The crumb topping was just a bit disappointing, too. I haven't had much experience with crumb toppings, but this seemed too dry to me. Probably needed more butter. However, I will make again this way because it was pretty healthy and still had four star flavor. And Shelley H. is right: it CRIES OUT for vanilla ice cream. I opted for Fat Free frozen topping (did not thaw) to keep the fat calories down.
