Peachy granola crumble

This is a crumble recipe like no other… it features fruit and oats, but from that point on it is rather different. The topping is made of crunchy granola and, given the chance, I would eat it by the spoonful. We made this with some sad specimens of peaches, gone over the top, but the result was still delicious. granola topping - spoonful 20-10-14peaches in the dish - ready for the topping 20-10-14Serves 4

Halve the peaches, remove the stones and cut each half into seven or eight wedges. Put them into an oven dish and squeeze over the lemon juice.
