Easy Peach Crisp

Try the classic southern peach crisp whenever you need a crowd pleasing dessert.

The recipe is quick to whip up using just a few basic ingredients. And it is great for family weeknight dinners, summer barbecues, baby showers, or brunch with friends.

Growing up, my mom would make this for us almost every week in the summer months, often adding blueberries or blackberries along with the ripe peaches.

What is the difference between peach cobbler and peach crisp?

Peach crumble or crisp includes a layer of sliced fruit on the bottom topped with a crunchy streusel made of butter, sugar, sometimes oats, and flour.

Instead of a crumbly topping, a cobbler calls for a thicker batter that resembles dumplings, drop biscuits, pie crust, or scones.

Easy peach crisp ingredients

You will need: peaches, oats, cinnamon, flour, sweetener, and butter or a neutral oil.

For a peach crisp without oatmeal, there is also a low carb option made with almond flour included in the recipe below.

As a fun variation, you can replace the peaches with apples or pineapple. Or replace up to half of the peaches with blueberries or sliced strawberries.

And feel free to stir a handful of shredded coconut or finely chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds into the streusel after cutting in the butter.

Unlike many other fruit crisp recipes, this one has no cornstarch!

Can you use canned or frozen peaches?

You absolutely can, and this makes the recipe even easier to throw together.

Frozen peaches have already been peeled and sliced. So all you need to do is thaw the packages and wipe away excess water or ice before proceeding.

If using canned peaches instead of fresh peaches, drain the cans fully before measuring out six cups of the fruit.

How to make the best peach crisp

If using fresh peaches, peel and slice them, discarding the pits.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the peaches with the sweetener and cinnamon in a large bowl to evenly coat.

Spread into an eight inch baking dish or cast iron pan, and set aside.

Combine all remaining ingredients except the butter or coconut oil in a bowl. Cut in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter, continuing to break up pieces of the topping until small crumbles form.

Sprinkle the crisp topping over the cinnamon peaches. Then place on the oven’s center rack and bake for 50 minutes or until the peaches are bubbly and caramelized with a golden topping.

Portion into individual bowls. Serve hot or cold, and top with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.

With six cups of vitamins A and C rich peaches packed into the recipe and less than a half cup of sugar for the entire pan, this fruit crisp is a great healthy dessert option.

For a vegan peach crisp recipe, simply use your favorite nondairy butter or the oil option. The dessert is naturally egg free and can be gluten free.

If you’re looking for a dessert with no added sugar, you can substitute the sweetener with date sugar, or with sugar free xylitol or granulated erythritol.

Storage instructions

Peach crisp recipes are best served the day they are made, because the oat topping will have the best crispy texture.

To prevent the dessert from getting soggy, store leftovers in the refrigerator in a covered container, leaving a small opening in the container. This will prevent excess moisture from getting trapped and softening the topping.

The peach dessert can also be frozen. Thaw before serving, and reheat if you wish.

    When you tested with canned peaches, did you need to cook for the full 50 minutes? The recipe doesn’t list a different cooking time for the canned peaches but that seems a long time given canned peaches are already cooked!

    This recipe was fantastic, thank you! We made the peach crisp for the fourth of July, added some sliced strawberries and whipped cream on top, and there were no leftovers!
