Gluten-Free Peach Crisp
This Gluten-Free Peach Crisp is made with fresh peaches, oats and almond flour for a dessert that is both healthy and delicious. This crisp recipe is even healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast!
Almond flour peach crisp
There’s nothing that screams *summer* quite like a fresh batch of summer peaches.
And while peaches are delicious on their own, they’re also one of my personal favourite fruits to use in recipes. From Peach Iced Tea to Peach Cobbler, peaches can be used in such a wide variety of ways!
Today’s recipe is for a Gluten-Free Peach Crisp. Which also happens to be one of my favourite summer desserts.
A crisp is made with an oat-based topping that is tossed together with a source of fat (usually butter) and some sugar to create a crumbly granola-like topping. This is different from a peach crumble, which is not made with oats, but rather with flour to create a crumble topping.
This healthy peach crisp recipe is also made with almond flour to keep it gluten-free and give it a little added nutrients.

Gluten-free peach crisp ingredients
- Peaches: the star ingredient of this crisp recipe! I use fresh peaches but you could also use frozen or canned peaches. However, keep in mind the crisp won’t be as good.
- Cornstarch: this is mixed with the peaches to help thicken any of the juices from the peaches so the crisp doesn’t become watery.
- Maple syrup: this is optional to add to the peaches if you find they need a little extra sweetness.
- Oats: make sure to use gluten-free certified oats for this recipe.
- Almond flour: this is mixed with oats to create the crisp topping.
- Coconut sugar: this is used to sweeten the crisp. You could also use brown sugar if you prefer.
- Cinnamon: just a little for flavour.
- Salt: a pinch of salt helps to balance out the sweetness of the crisp.
- Butter: you could also use coconut oil. This is what turns the crisp topping crispy!

Expert tips for making a healthy peach crisp
- Use ripe peaches. Ripe and sweet peaches will lead to a sweeter and tastier crisp!
- Don’t over-pulse the crisp topping. Pulse the ingredients together in the food processor just until combined. If you over-process, you’ll lose the texture of the oats in the crisp.
- Use any shape baking dish. Round, rectangle, and square all work well for this crisp recipe!

Delicious and satisfying! I don’t own a food processor, but used a knife to chop the butter, and finished the blending with a fork, as my mom used to do.
Thank you Bonnie, glad you enjoyed!
