An amazing way to make Peach Crisp Healthy!
If peaches are your favorite fruit, then you need this super easy peach crisp recipe. Made with fresh peaches, and topped with a simple cinnamon pecan crumble, it’s fantastic served with vanilla ice cream.
By substituting the butter and brown sugar in the crumble, you can make this peach crisp healthy! A great option if you are looking to watch your calories but still want a delicious fruit dessert.
Here’s how this delicious peach crisp recipe comes together:
How do you make peach crisp from scratch?
Start by adding fresh, frozen or canned peaches to the bottom of a baking dish or individual ramekins. Top the peaches with a crumble that has been made with oatmeal, flour (or oat flour), spices, baking soda, baking powder, butter (or coconut oil) and pecans.
Crumble the oat topping over the peaches, and bake until the crumble is golden brown.
Do I have to use ramekins or can I make one large peach crisp?
Yes. You can make one large peach crisp by using a medium (9×9″) baking dish or pan.
It didn’t take long for the house to smell amazing. Once I pulled these babies out of the oven, I had a bubbly, peachy, pecan goodness! Topped with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, these peach crisps became an amazing dessert!
How do I make peach crisp healthy?
Here are the substitutions I would recommend to make this peach crisp healthy:
- Swerve granular sweetener instead of granular sugar (with the peaches)
- Oat flour instead of all-purpose flour
- Ghee or unflavored coconut oil instead of butter
- Swerve brown sugar substitute instead of brown sugar
Does peach crisp freeze well?
Yes. I would recommend baking the crisp and then letting it cool completely to room temperature. Cover with press-and-seal plastic wrap, or transfer the crisp to a resealable plastic freezer container.
To reheat, place individual servings into ramekins or oven-safe dishes and heat until the crumble is golden brown; about 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
You can also assemble the crisp, but not bake it. Freeze it by tightly wrapping with press-and-seal wrap and another layer of aluminum foil. When ready to bake, thaw to room temperature, and then bake according to recipe directions.
