Humble Peach Crumble

Living in northeast Florida, we get to enjoy fresh Georgia peaches sold at roadside stands and farmers markets. There's practically one on every corner! This is a recipe I've used for years but have tweaked until I found just the right combination of spices to bring out the best flavor and the most enticing aroma. It's irresistible! Serve it hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, drizzle with a little cream or eat it plain. Whichever way, it's heavenly!

**update- I've added a lower carb version with nutritional info for both down below! Fabulous either way!
