Mango and Peach Quinoa Crisp

_DSC0356

A half summer, half monsoon kinda weather calls for the best of both the seasons – some delicious fresh fruits turned into something warm and comforting. A cool early morning breeze and a sizzling hot bowl of healthy breakfast fix – its a dreamy and yummy start to the morning. I have started to make crisps quite often given that its super simple to make and versatile. Be it a hectic morning or a relaxed weekend morning, crisps is a one stop solution. And when you have such amazing seasonal produce like peaches and mangoes, this one is a definite crowd pleaser.

Juicy fruits bubbling under a delicious topping made with oats and quinoa, this is my new favorite.
