- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9×13 in. baking pan.
- Core and slice the peaches. Combine them in a bowl with the blueberries, lemon juice, and flour. Toss everything to ensure the fruit is thoroughly coated.
- In another bowl, combine all of the topping ingredients except the butter.
- Quickly cut the butter into pea-sized chunks. Then, use two forks to mash the butter into the rest of the topping ingredients until the mixture resembles course crumbs.
- Pour the fruit filling into the baking dish and top it with the crumble mixture. Make sure both layers are even.
- Transfer the baking dish into oven and bake for 40-50 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the sides are bubbly.
- Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
