    Peach crisp in a baking dish
  • Bake peach crisp approximately 30-35 minutes, or until topping is lightly browned and crisp.
  • Remove from oven and let cool 5-10 minutes. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream (optional).


  • Peach Slices: Slice your peaches into thick, ¾-inch wedges. Depending on the size of your peaches, you should get roughly 6-8 wedges per peach.
  • Make it Gluten Free: Use gluten-free all-purpose flour or cassava flour.  Make sure your oats are gluten free, too - oats naturally are, but cross-contamination may occur.
  • Make it Paleo: Use cassava flour and coconut sugar. Instead of rolled oats, try chopped almonds or pecans. Use ghee instead of butter.
