Peach Filling – 2 ¼ pounds ripe peaches, peeled and thinly sliced (about 5 to 6 peaches) – ⅓ cup honey – 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch or cornstarch – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon Crisp topping – 1 cup old-fashioned oats (certified gluten free if necessary) – ½ cup almond meal or almond flour, lightly packed – ⅓ cup sliced almond – ⅓ cup packed coconut sugar or brown sugar – 1 teaspoon ground ginger – ¼ teaspoon fine grain sea salt – 4 tablespoons butter, melted – 3 to 4 tablespoons plain yogurt (regular or Greek)


Step 1


Heat the oven to 350°F. The filling: Mix sliced peaches, honey, arrowroot starch, vanilla, and cinnamon in a 9-by-9-inch baking dish.

Step 2

To make the topping, mix oats, almond meal, sliced almonds, coconut sugar, ginger, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in melted butter and yoghurt.

Step 3

Stir the mixture until moistened, adding 1 tablespoon of yoghurt if needed. To evenly distribute the oat mixture, spoon spoonfuls over the filling and break it up with your fingers.

Step 4

Bake until filling bubbles around edges and top is lightly golden, about 30 minutes. Let the crisp rest 5–10 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream or plain yoghurt.
