When I found out my son and I had a gluten intolerance, especially to oats, I started experimenting with favorite recipes. Peach Crisp is one of the many I’ve worked on and though our family really enjoys it, even my husband who isn’t gluten intolerant, I’ve never shared it with anyone else. So if you end up trying this, let me know how you like it!
Tiffiny’s Gluten-Free Peach Crisp
2-3 sliced fresh peaches (or more if you like)
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sweetened almond butter (use crunchy style for more texture)
1/4 tsp gluten-free vanilla extract
1-1/4 cup brown rice flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup walnuts (optional, for more texture)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Placed sliced peaches in a baking dish (9×9 or 8×8 or comparable). Combine the maple syrup, lemon juice and cinnamon and pour over the peaches. Dot with the 1 Tbsp of butter. Set aside.
Mix all the topping ingredients together until well mixed. Then dot small bits of the topping onto the peaches until the peaches are covered. (You may have extra topping leftover.)
Bake for 25-40 minutes, until peaches are bubbly and topping is browned. A shorter cooking time will make your topping more cookie-like, while a longer cooking time will make it crisper.
Let cool until firm, and serve warm. Yummmmm!
(If you use unsweetened almond butter, you may want to increase the brown sugar.)
This will be my last peach recipe this season. I was going to do peach pie next but why? There are a million peach pie recipes out there so what’s the point. I’m not doing anything new or even trying to make a gluten-free pie. Nope, just using the recipe straight out of my 1956 Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook.
Also I’ve realized since my daughter’s condition has been stable and she’s in remission, instead of trying to find a new normal, I’ve tried to go back to the old normal, which is basically impossible. I’m not sure if I’ve been in my usual overachiever mode or if I’m in denial. Maybe both. Either way, I’ve been really stressed and need to back off on some of the things I’ve been doing. Extra cooking, extra blogging, extra anything, I’m cutting back on. So I may not be blogging as much but I’ll still be here, so don’t give up on me… = )
Until next time, Happy Peach Season!
