So I entertained the thought recently of making a peach cobbler with a cake-like topping on the top and bottom, sort of sandwiching the peaches - the works baby!
I have seen some really amazing peach cobblers like Pioneer Woman's (Ree Drummond) and others that Food Network feature. Yum! Can you really blame me???
Nevertheless, seeing how I have been trying to make more simple and healthy (yet still delicious of course) recipes, I decided to make a rather easy peach crisp instead.
I had a ton of Bob's Red Mill gluten free oats (still!) and a lot of fresh Colorado peaches, so I thought,
I wanted to do it different this time though. Yes, I could have used my go-to recipe for a crisp and just substituted the other fruit filling for peach, but I wanted to make a refined sugar free version this time that would still taste great.
So if you have some gluten free oats, peaches, and pure maple, you may wanna give this yummy treat a try this weekend!
8-10 med/large peeled peaches chopped into thin slices (there's a picture below of this).
1/4 to 1/3 cup pure maple syrup, depending on your sweet tooth (I use grade B)
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
A good squeeze of fresh lemon juice
1 cup Bob's Red Mill gluten free oats
1/2 cup pecan halves, in pieces
1/4 cup blanched almond flour
3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 tbsp Earth Balance soy-free spread
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/8 tsp of sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Meanwhile, on the stove - in a large pot over medium high heat add all filling ingredients, and let it cook until filling thickens and has a natural syrup (like canned peaches lol). Stir occasionally. When done, let it sit for 5 minutes
Next, prepare the crumble by adding all ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
Then, pour the warm filling into a pyrex glass baking dish, followed by adding the crisp topping.
Bake the peach crisp in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
This dessert can store in a refrigerator for about 2-4 days comfortably.
The pretty Colorado peaches...All washed and ready to cut!
What I mean by cut them into thin slices - almost like apple slices huh?
Ahh! The final product! Want some?
