For a quick and easy (ready in 5 minutes!) but oh so delicious snack, whip up these gorgonzola peach and blueberries crostini that will satisfy your sweet tooth, yet are healthy and good for you!
Last Sunday around 4-5 pm I was craving dessert. Something sweet to tie me over until dinner. These sweet-treats-munchies can be dangerous because there comes a point when I just can’t wait anymore and need to have something to munch on, be it a piece of dark chocolate or a handful of nuts or dried fruit. Well I knew that my patience was wearing thin and I had to act fast before I stuffed myself with anything I happened to find in the kitchen and that’s when the inspiration for these gorgonzola peach and blueberries crostini was born!
They are incredibly simple, ready under 5 minutes but oh so fancy and delicious you’ll be devouring 3-4 before you realize the plate is almost empty. True story 😉
You only need just a couple of ingredients: some bread/baguette for the crostini, gorgonzola or any other fragrant blue cheese, fresh fruit (I used peaches and blueberries but you can even put pear slices or any other berries (raspberries, blueberries, etc.) on the crostini), some crushed hazelnuts or hemp seeds for some crunch and a drizzle of honey to sweeten things up and voilá, the delicious fancy crostini are ready to be devooured!
- ½ baguette sliced up
- 50 gr gorgonzola (or any other fragrant blue cheese)
- 1 peach sliced up
- ½ cup blueberries
- 3 tbsp crushed hazelnuts or hemp seeds
- drizzle of honey
- Put your baguette slices in your toaster and on a low setting toast them until they are golden and crunchy. (Instead of a toaster you can also toast your crostini in your oven, see notes for more.)
- Place the toasted crostini on a plate or cutting board and let it cool slightly.
- Once the crostini aren't hot anymore spread some gorgonzola on them.
- Top with sliced peaches and the blueberries, sprinkle with the crushed hazelnuts or hemp seeds and drizzle with honey. It's ready, enjoy!
2. These crostini are very versatile, you can mix and match the fruits you use: pears, grapes and walnuts go very well with gorgonzola, but you can get creative and try some other combinations as well.
