Diagnosed with Celiac Disease
I started creating healthy dessert recipes when I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1998, during the Dark Ages of gluten free.
At that point, following a gluten free diet became critical.
Over the years, I’ve learned how important eating low carb is as well, given that celiac and diabetes ride on the same gene –having one increases the likelihood of having the other.
Easy Gluten Free Recipes
This is also why I started following a grain free diet, a couple of decades ago. Almond flour and coconut flour make up the base of my easy gluten free recipes. No corn, potato, or rice flour here!
Recipes with Almond Flour
After testing just about every gluten-free flour available, I can save you a lot of time and hassle when I say that almond flour is far superior to most other gluten free flours in terms of:
- Ease of Use
Easy Recipes for Gluten Free Desserts
And this crisp is another one of my easy recipes for gluten free desserts made with almond flour.
It also has even less added sweetener than the usual peach crisp, with only one tablespoon of maple syrup in the entire recipe.
Recipes for Healthy Desserts with Fruit
Yes, you can have your cake and eat it too! This is important when dessert is your favorite part of the meal and you don’t believe in deprivation.
That’s why I’ve created so many dessert recipes that are easy and healthy.

Apple Crisp Recipe Easy
When I create a recipe, saving time in the kitchen is essential, but preparing delicious and nutritious recipes for my family is just as important.
My Apple Blackberry Crisp can be assembled in 10 minutes!
It’s made with apples, blackberries, lemon juice, and vanilla, then finished off with a high protein almond flour crumble topping, sweetened with a touch of maple syrup.
The boys used to say, mom, would you make us a apple crisp recipe when they were little, and I would chuckle as they fumbled adorably for the proper article while making their request.
Now they’re all grown up and still ask for apple crisp when they come home to visit!

Recipe for Berry Crisp
Bursting with low carb fresh strawberries, my healthy sugar-free Strawberry Crisp is a great keto dessert.
This is a truly simple recipe made with 5 ingredients, where your oven does most of the work.
While baking the strawberries, use your food processor to pulse together the low carb, gluten free topping made with almond flour, slivered almonds, salt, and shortening or butter.
Recipes for Plum Jam
Luscious homemade jam is fruit at its finest. My Sugar Free Plum Jam Recipe cooks down the whole fruit with water, lemon juice, and stevia. Nothing more!
It’s full of fiber, loaded with a healthy dose of vitamin C, and bursting with tart flavor.
I love serving Sugar Free Plum Jam on top of toasted Keto Bread smothered in ghee.

I adore you beyond what you can imagine. You are precious to me. An inspiration and motivator and reminder to me to live my life. You sober me. You are a living example of wholesome, attuned, sensitive living.
Your recipes are absolutely amazing. There hasn’t been even one that has disappointed, although I definitely have my favorites — and share them with everyone I know. I only wish I had your Silver Dollar Pancakes and Berry Syrup while my Father was alive — they are exactly what we always wanted — a healthy pancake that is beyond delicious! I thank you and I wish you all good blessings. I love you Elana.
Diane, I kept your comment in the cue for a long time so that I could read it again and again. Thank you for brightening my day more then you can ever imagine. Sending all my love.
Elena, is there another flour I can use.
Can’t have almond flour.
Marie, I haven’t tried that :-)

Should the peaches be peeled for this recipe?

This was the first time I used one of your recipes and this one is a winner! My hubby loved it and asked for more. I made it just as written but I did spray the dish with coconut oil because I didn’t want it to stick. Can’t wait to try some more of your almond flourvrecipes.
Nutritional Value and how many cups of sliced, thawed frozen peaches?

I hope you have a wonderful day!
I just made this and it is so delicious! I sprinkled a little cinnamon in it because I love the taste of peach cobbler and it was great that way. 5 medium peaches weighed 2 lbs before I sliced them up, just FYI for anyone who does not have a digital scale. It tastes great how it is, but I may experiment with substituting the maple syrup with something sugar-free. It would not be paleo, but it would reduce carbs and sugar by a few grams per serving. Thanks for the recipe, it will definitely be used again and again!
Tracy, thanks for letting me know this is so delicious!
