Peach Crisp

Healthy Peach Crisp Recipe

If you’re looking for a peach cobbler recipe but are health conscious, consider making this peach crisp recipe with zero added sugar.  

Peaches are a major signal of summer for us, and there’s no better time than now to cut back on sugar, especially because everyone is talking about gaining the “quarantine 15”.

You may be asking, how are you starting a dessert recipe off by saying that you’re eliminating sugar?

Ever since we were introduced to Purecane sweetener well over a year ago, both our minds changed regarding alternative sweeteners. 

What is also important to us about Purecane is the fact that it is non-GMO and is just fermented sugarcane that comes from Brazil.

Now we love reducing both our sugar intake and calories for all our sweets including this zero-added sugar banana bread recipe and these keto-friendly mini raspberry cheesecakes

You can’t notice the difference whether is it one of those dishes or this new recipe for peach crisp using fresh peaches and oatmeal.

What is the difference between peach cobbler and peach crisp?

It’s all about the topping! 

 A cobbler is traditionally made in a deep dish, and the fruit of choice is topped with a heavy biscuit or pie style crust.  

A crisp on the other hand is a topping made with a mixture of oats, butter, sugar (or Purecane in this instance), flour, and cinnamon.  

When baked, a crisp actually gets crispy, and it’s easier to cut through versus a biscuit-like topping. 

They are all similar because none of them traditionally have crust on the bottom like a pie.

Okay well then what’s a peach crumble!?

A peach crumble is similar to a peach crisp but doesn’t use oats!

To turn this dish into a peach crumble recipe, make the topping as instructed but forgo adding the oats.

Our peach crisp with fresh peaches

We love eating fresh peaches all summer long, and we eat them in everything from salads to deserts.  

The one thing about fresh peaches is that they can go bad quickly, and when peaches get too soft for eating we love to make crisps.  On average peaches only last for 3-4 days on the counter, so by day 4 the peach crisp is calling us when they’re too soft for our liking.  

Similar to our banana bread, the more ripe the fruit the better it is for a dessert compared to eating it on its own. 

Peaches

How do you make peaches taste better?

At times, peaches can be hit or miss flavor-wise, sometimes they’re incredibly juicy and sweet and sometimes you get a batch that is a bit sour.

You can bring out the best of peaches by slicing all of your peaches and putting them all into a bowl to allow them to extract their juices with Purecane.

One thing we love about Purecane is the fact that it actually makes fruit flavors pop.  By mixing Purecane with the peaches and allowing the peaches to sit for 30 minutes it will start to pull moisture out of the peaches and emphasize the flavor throughout every slice.

Making peach crisp with frozen peaches

Can you make peach crisps with frozen peaches?  Of course, peaches are very seasonal but we love peaches year-round!  

Frozen peaches are also great because they retain most of their health benefits, and typically they don’t have any added sugar or additives. 

The best way to bake with frozen peaches is to allow them to defrost for a bit, and then discard  any overabundance of juices so they don’t bake super soggy. Or simply add more corn starch to the mix.

Peach Crisp

Peach crisp with canned peaches 

For a super easy peach crisp, just reach for a can of peaches. 

They are already sliced and peeled, which saves you a step in the peach crisp cooking process!

Simply drain the canned peaches before mixing the fruit with Purecane and other recipe ingredients. 

Peach Crisp

Peach crisp gluten free option

Our healthy peach crisp recipe with oats already has zero sugar, but if you’re looking for a gluten free peach crisp, simply swap out the all purpose flour for almond flour.

Oats are naturally gluten free so no other substitutions are required to make this easy peach crisp gluten free.

Additional flavor options:

Add a handful of blueberries to convert this recipe to a peach blueberry crisp.

Consider reaching for raspberries or blackberries to add a tart kick to this peach crisp recipe with oats.

We like making bourbon peach crisp but if you want to skip the alcohol just omit it from our recipe.

The possibilities are endless because this is the best peach crisp recipe with oatmeal!
