Fresh Peach Crisp (Gluten-Free)

Fresh peach crisp with coconut ice cream

Oh, I love these late days of summer! And I love the produce that goes with them, too.

Peaches have been particularly delicious to me this summer, but I’ve eaten plenty of them fresh and cold already. So when I received a gift of a bagful of fresh peaches recently, I knew there was only one thing to do: make a crisp!

I used what was on hand, including gluten-free all-purpose baking mix, Scottish oatmeal, and coconut palm sugar, so this is NOT a traditional recipe. You can try substituting your own ingredients and see how it turns out!

Hope you enjoy 🙂

Fresh Peach Crisp (Gluten-Free)

Ingredients: Crumb Topping

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose baking mix (I used this)
  • 1/2 cup oats (I used this)
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of salt
  • 1/4–1/3 cup unsalted butter, cold

Ingredients: Filling

  • 4–6 fresh peaches, cored and sliced in 1/2-inch pieces (I left the peels ON!)
  • 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose baking mix
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of salt
  • dash of cinnamon

Steps

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, toss the sliced peaches and 1/4 cup coconut sugar to coat. Let sit for 10-20 minutes until juicy.
  2. Combine all the ingredients for the topping in a different medium-sized bowl. Use a pastry cutter or fork to cut in the butter until the mixture becomes crumbly.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  4. Mix together the rest of the filling ingredients in a small bowl, then add to the peaches and toss to combine.
  5. Layer the peach filling in a dish. I used an 8″x8″ glass dish, but you can use what you have that is similar.
  6. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly across the filling until covered.
  7. Bake for 30–35 minutes or until the top is set and turning golden.
  8. Remove from oven and cool slightly before serving.
  9. Tastes AMAZING with coconut “ice cream” — I had it with Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut, and it was DIVINE.

Enjoy! Have a wonderful rest of your summer!
