Ingredients for Gluten-Free Peach Crisp

Here are some of the ingredients that make this easy peach crisp recipe so delicious!

  • Oats: Be sure to use certified gluten-free rolled oats for the crumble topping in this peach crisp. This is my favorite brand. Rolled oats work best in this topping!
  • Almonds: Peaches and almonds are a match made in heaven. Adding some almonds to the topping helps it turn out extra crispy. 
  • Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Flour: Pretty much any flour blend will work here! I like to use a high quality 1:1 baking flour. 
  • Fresh Peaches: The most time consuming part of making this peach crisp is cutting up the peaches! Choose sweet peaches that are at peak ripeness. You can blanch the peaches to speed up the peeling process.

How to Make Peach Crisp

Blanch the Peaches for Easy Skin Removal 

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then place about 4 ripe peaches in the pot for 2 minutes.
  • Scoop the peach out of the water with a slotted spoon into a large bowl of ice water. The skin should then easily slide off!

Make the Filling

  • Once you have your peaches peeled, mix them together with the rest of the ingredients for the filling. 
  • Then you’ll pour them into a 9×13 prepared baking dish.

Make the Crunchy Topping

  • In a food processor, pulse 2/3 cup of the oats, flour, brown sugar, sugar, vanilla extract, water, and salt.
  • Add 1/2 the almonds and butter and pulse to form pea-sized pieces.
  • Add the remaining almonds and 1/3 oats and combine with 2 quick pulses.
  • Sprinkle the topping over the filling ingredients, then bake this delicious gluten free crisp!

Make-Ahead and Storage Instructions

MAKE-AHEAD: This gluten-free peach crisp is best eaten the day it’s made. If you want to make it in advance, you can mix together the topping and keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to make the peach crisp. 

Unfortunately the peach filling can’t be made too far in advance, as the peaches will brown once they’re cut. 

STORAGE: Store any leftover peach crisp covered in the refrigerator. 

FAQs

What’s the difference between peach crisp and peach cobbler?

Peach crisp and peach cobbler have similar peach filling, but the toppings differ slightly. Peach crisp is made with an oat strudel topping, while peach cobbler is made with a denser biscuit topping.

How do you make peach crisp?

The perfect peach crisp is made by combining freshly peeled peaches with cornstarch, sugar, and spices. The sliced peaches are then sprinkled with a layer of oats, brown sugar, flour, and butter to make a crispy strudel topping. The crisp is baked in the oven until bubbly and golden brown.

Why is my peach crisp soggy?

Peach crisp will get soggy as it sits and soaks up the peach juices, so it’s best served within an hour or so after taking it out of the oven. You can also try adding a bit more cornstarch to thicken the peach layer.

Expert Tips & Tricks

  • If you don’t have fresh peaches on hand or want to save time, you can certainly use canned peaches. But for best results, use fresh peaches. They really take the dish to the next level!
  • Feel free to swap the almonds for another nut, like pecans or walnuts.
  • Serve this peach crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or even drizzle of caramel. You’ll be in summer dessert heaven!

    Delicious. Picked peaches from our yard and used them for this. So good warm with vanilla ice cream. We had chopped pecans ( no almonds) and it worked out just fine. Thanks for a great recipe that the whole family can enjoy…doesn’t taste gluten free. 🙂

    It’s so hard sometimes to find really good versions of classic desserts GF but this one is spot on! From the filling to the crust we couldn’t get enough!

  3. Just stumbled on this site looking for gluten free peach crisp. My husband adores peach crisp/cobblers but recently I was diagnosed with non-celiac gluten intolerance. This recipe will make both of us happy (will skip anything coconut though as my husband is allergic to it!). Thanks for sharing! I’m definitely giving it a try this week,peaches being on sale at the grocery store this week! Bonus!!!

    1. I hope you liked it! Good luck starting a gluten-free diet! Let me know if I can help with any questions!

  4. Seriously??!!??!! Delicious! The bomb diddy! I made it for the 4th of July and I doubled the recipe to make a huge pan. It evaporated very quickly!

  5. Great recipe – thank you for sharing! Made this for a crowd so I doubled the recipe and baked in three separate dishes. Didn’t have a food processor at the beach house where we’re staying so I used a blender to pulse the oats and a hand blender to incorporate the butter – turned out great and a big hit!

  6. I just made this recipe today and it is absolutely delicious! I used coconut sugar for all the white sugar so there was only 1/3 cup of sugar in the entire thing! Thank you for a great recipe!
