06 Sep Peach crisp
We’re still into peach season and just before we switch over to apple season, I want to share this delicious and healthy peach crisp that I make for my kids. They go crazy for it and it makes me happy because it’s not loaded with sugar. It’s actually made with wholesome ingredients and I feel good serving it to them as dessert or even as an after school snack. I’ve made it quite a bit in the last month and I’ve noticed that some peaches release more juice than others and make a juicier version of this crisp all together. When I feel it comes out a little dry, I combine it with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, coconut yogurt or vanilla ice cream. I keep mentioning my kids love it but adults love it as well 😊!
- 4-6 peaches, sliced
- 2 tbsp. cornstarch
- 1 tsp. almond extract
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- ¾ cup old fashion oats
- 1/3 cup almond flour
- 2 tbsp. maple syrup
- 2 tbsp. butter, cut up in little cubes (plus more to butter the baking dish)
- Butter an 8 X 8 baking dish.
- In a bowl, mix peaches with cornstarch and almond extract.
- Arrange peaches at the bottom of the prepared dish.
- In another bowl, mix oats, almond flour and cinnamon well together.
- Incorporate maple syrup and butter cubes.
- With clean hands, mix everything together pressing on the butter so that it incorporates into the mix and forms a crumbly paste.
- Spread oat mixture on top of the peaches making sure that it’s evenly distributed.
- Bake in the oven at 350 F for 30 to 45 minutes, just until the crust becomes golden and the peaches are bubbling.
- Remove from oven and let cool before slicing and enjoying!
