Paleo Peach Crisp

 Paleo Peach Crisp is made with only six ingredients: peaches, almond flour, salt, butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. This healthy gluten-free crisp is another one of my easy-to-make Paleo recipes that has even less added sweetener than usual. The entire recipe has one tablespoon of maple syrup. Better yet? My boys and their friends devoured it last night.

If you make this healthy dessert recipe with frozen peaches, be sure to let them thaw completely before you make the crisp. When I used frozen peaches they took around three hours to thaw out to room temperature. Of course, it's fantastic with fresh peaches.

I’m a huge follower of your blog. I love how you can make the most delicious recipes using a small amount of simple ingredients!

I love serving desserts made with almond flour to my growing boys (now teenagers) because almonds are far more nutritious than the wheat flour that traditionally makes up such desserts. Almond flour is higher in protein, lower in carbs, and full of more nutrients than its wheat flour counterpart.

My strategy (getting as much healthy food into the boys as I can) seems to be working since ours is the home that my sons and their friends gathered at all summer long and now come to for “snack time” everyday after school.

Sometimes my children and I make this crisp with apples, and then it really becomes a family affair. The boys have been pealing and coring apples for our baking exploits since they began grade school and it is one task that they heartily agree to and enjoy –probably given the pot of gold (in this case dessert) at the end of that rainbow! What kind of crisp will you make? How will you adapt this recipe to fit your needs? Leave a comment and let me know!

  1. 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!
