Why I Love This Healthy Peach Crisp Recipe

There are quite a few reasons why I love this recipe:

  • This peach crisp is made without flour, cornstarch and is refined sugar free.
  • It comes together incredibly fast. You only need about ten minutes for the prep.
  • This is a perfect recipe to use up ripe peaches because they don’t store well.
  • This peach crisp is not very sweet and can be eaten as a dessert or snack.
  • It’s a great recipe to make with kids. They can help you make the crumble topping, and you can teach them that no flour or refined sugar is needed to make a delicious dessert.

How Ripe Should the Peaches Be For This Peach Crisp?

The peaches should be pretty ripe. This recipe is made without sugar, so you really want the peaches to be sweet and juicy for the peach crisp to taste good.

If the peaches are still hard, they shouldn’t be used for this recipe.

Should You Peel the Peaches for This Recipe?

You don’t have to peel the peaches to make this peach crisp. Peach skins contain a lot of fiber, so it is better to leave them on.

But some people find peach skins to be tough, so you can also remove the skin if you don’t like it.

How to Peel Peaches

If peaches are overripe, sometimes the skin comes off very easily by itself. If not, here is how you can peel peaches:

  1. Fill a large bowl with cold water and add about one or two cups of ice cubes.
  2. In a large pot, bring water to a boil.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, place the peaches into the boiling water for about 30 seconds.
  4. Carefully remove the peaches from the boiling water and place them into the ice water bath.
  5. Remove each peach from the ice water and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  6. Peel with a paring knife by pulling the skin off.

Can Nectarines be Used Instead of Peaches?

You can use either peaches or nectarines for this recipe. You can also mix them.

Oat Topping Ingredients

Here is what you will need to make the oat topping:

  • rolled oats
  • almond meal or almond flour
  • coconut oil
  • maple syrup
  • cinnamon
  • salt

Can the Oat Topping be Used for Other Recipes?

Absolutely! For example, you can use it to make this Healthy Apple Crisp or this Pear Cranberry Crisp.

  3. To make the oat topping, mix the rolled oats, almond meal, coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt.

This healthy peach crisp is delicious and very easy to make. This dessert contains no flour and no cornstarch and is naturally sweetened with maple syrup. You can also make it gluten-free if needed.


  • 1 1/2 pound ripe peaches
  • 1 1/4 cup rolled oats (choose gluten-free if needed)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Wash the peaches and pat them dry. You can peel them if you think that the skin is too thick. I usually don't do that.
  3. Slice the peaches and arrange them in a baking dish in an even layer. You can first oil the baking dish with a little bit of coconut oil. I don't do that because the fruits are moist and don't stick to my baking dish.

  5. Spread the topping evenly over the peaches.
  6. Place the peach crisp into the oven and bake for about 35-40 minutes until the crumble topping is golden brown.
