Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat a 11-by-7-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Toss peaches with cornstarch and 1/4 cup granulated sugar in a large bowl. Spread the peach mixture in the prepared baking dish.

  • Combine almond flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and the remaining 1/3 cup granulated sugar in a medium bowl. Using a pastry cutter or your hands, work butter into the mixture until it's pea-sized. Stir in oats and almonds. Distribute the oat mixture evenly over the peaches.

  • Bake the crisp until golden and bubbly, about 40 minutes.


Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
