Fresh Peach Crisp

2013 – Gluten Free Living

Fresh Peach Crisp is an amazing and marvelous gluten free and vegan recipe. Loads of fresh peach slices are buried under a delicious oatmeal and brown sugar topping. Yum, yum, yum! I used all-purpose gluten free flour in this crisp and instead of using butter I substituted coconut oil. When I served this for company a couple of weeks ago, no one even realized it was BOTH gluten free and vegan! Truly, Fresh Peach Crisp is S-P-E-C-T-A-C-U-L-A-R! Of course, it was made even more spectacular by a hefty dose of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream! 🙂

I had a lot of peaches I needed to use up a couple of weeks ago, so I got the idea of using my delicious Apple Crisp recipe but  instead of using apples I would substitute peaches. I also wanted to make it both vegan and gluten free. Thankfully, I hit the nail on the head with this recipe! This is one of those times when everything came together so wonderfully and the finished product was mouthwatering and sumptuous! Years ago, DeLona Laxton brought in a luscious Apple Crisp for breakfast to our Sunday School class one morning. Even though Apple Crisp is traditionally served for dessert, I loved this recipe served for breakfast instead! I couldn’t wait to get the recipe from DeLona, which she graciously supplied. I’ve made Apple Crisp many times over the years and every time we get rave reviews. I was trying to come up with some kind of cobbler or crisp recipe to use up the peaches when I remembered this recipe.  I’m so glad it came to my mind because this was a hit with everyone. I served two peach desserts that night for our company and everyone wanted a slice of each. They loved this scrumptious Fresh Peach Crisp. I did too. I bet you couldn’t tell that! 🙂

If you’re looking for a lovely fruit dessert that is sure to please even the most finicky eater, then consider Fresh Peach Crisp at your next opportunity. Hurry, because peaches won’t be available too much longer! I’m sure you could use three cans of peach pie filling or a couple of large cans of sliced peaches in a pinch, although fresh peaches are so much better. Cook the crisp until it bubbles up really thick and no longer runny – close to an hour–or even longer– for the best results. Top with your favorite vanilla or Snickerdoodle ice cream and you’re good to go!

Fresh Peach Crisp is a marvelous fall dessert especially when peaches are in season.

Lots of peaches in a thick, cinnamon sauce are topped with a tasty oatmeal streusel in this wonderful recipe.

We topped Fresh Peach Crisp with Blue Bell vanilla ice cream, but you can use non-dairy whipped topping if you’re vegan.

Here’s a look at the crisp just out of the oven.

 

Here’s what I did.

I had these whopper peaches I needed to use up. I think 6 of these peaches measured 10 cups! Normally you would need about 10-12 peaches. Peel and dice the peaches and place in large mixing bowl.

Add granulated sugar.

I used gluten free flour in this recipe. If you don’t have gluten allergies you can use regular UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add gluten free flour and cinnamon.

Stir ingredients to combine. Pour peach mixture into a 9×13″ glass baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.Pour 1/2 cup water over top of the peaches.

To make streusel: measure gluten free flour into a mixing bowl. Add brown sugar.

Add oatmeal, baking soda and baking powder.

Add coconut oil. You can melt it if you need to, but it at least needs to be softened.

Stir ingredients to combine. Sprinkle streusel topping over top of peaches in baking dish.

Bake about an hour or until juices bubble up really thick. If you take this out too early the dessert will be runny. So tent the dish with foil if you need to in order to keep the top from browning, but make sure it cooks long enough for the juices to thicken. It may take 1 hour 15 minutes in your oven. Fresh Peach Crisp is gluten free and vegan for those with special diets.

Our company really enjoyed this peachy dessert.

Here’s another look at the crisp without ice cream on top so you can see the texture quite well. This first piece out of the pan didn’t come out quite as nice as I’d hoped. 🙁  But you can still see what the crisp looks like.

I had this outside for only a few minutes and the ice cream began to melt down big time! Doesn’t Fresh Peach Crisp look marvelous?

 

Here’s the recipe.

Fresh Peach Crisp was so amazing to the tastebuds. I had several pieces of this delicious fruity dessert and I don’t usually eat desserts! We like Fresh Peach Crisp with either ice cream or Cool Whip, but you don’t have to serve it with either.

Fresh Peach Crisp can also be enjoyed for breakfast not just as a dessert! Are you salivating? I am. I think I need a piece right now!
