Peach Crisp is a simple dessert that is naturally vegan and gluten-free. Perfect for making if you picked too many peaches at the local orchard.
Peaches are one of my favorite fruits, especially when they are tree-ripened. I have been enjoying my fair share of fresh peaches from the local farmers market over the past month. They are just too good! Last weekend, we went to the orchard to pick the peaches right off the trees. If you have been following me for awhile, you might have noticed that I have this thing for u-pick farms. From apples to strawberries, I love picking any fruit that I can. We had a great time Crane’s Orchard last weekend picking peaches and can’t wait to go back next month to pick apples.
Crisps have become my go-to summer dessert. They are easy to make and highlight fruit that is picked at its freshest. This Vegan Peach Crisp couldn’t be easier to make. The peaches get tossed with a little lemon juice, cornstarch, vanilla and maple syrup for sweetness. The topping is naturally gluten-free and uses a mix of rolled oats, almond meal, brown sugar and chopped pecans. I don’t bother to peel the peaches; I like having the texture of the peel in the crisp. Plus, it is one less step to do.
This Peach Crisp is the perfect summer dessert. I’m enjoy all things peach before fall is finally here and it’s all about apples and pumpkin.
I highly recommend serving the Peach Crisp with ice cream. There is just something about the combination of the warm crisp and cold ice cream. I actually didn’t have any vanilla ice cream when I made the crisp, but I just had tested out a hibiscus sorbet recipe and figured that peach and hibiscus would pair nicely together. I’m finally finishing up testing and writing the recipes for my Mexican Vegan Ebook. It will be out sometime in September! It has taking me a little longer than I wanted it to, but I hope that you will love it! Be sure to follow and like us on Facebook for more information on the release date!
