Are your kitchens overflowing with ripe, delicious peaches? We think that peach crisp, with the delicious flavor of almonds, is the perfect summer dessert.
To start, peel and thinly slice four to six large, juicy peaches. (If you’re using dried peaches, drain the water and give them a quick chop.) Place the peach slices in a bowl and add 1/2 cup of dried cherries or raisins, 3 tbsp. of all-purpose flour (or coconut flour), the juice and zest of one lemon, 3 tbsp. of packed light brown sugar, 2 tbsp. of organic evaporated cane juice, 1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon and 1 tsp. of pure vanilla extract. Pour the filling into a greased glass baking dish.
In a medium bowl, stir together 3/4 cup of almond flour, 3/4 cup of rolled oats, 1/3 cup of packed light brown sugar, 3 tbsp. of organic evaporated cane juice, 1/2 tsp. of salt and 5 tbsp. of sliced almonds.
Melt 6 tbsp. of unsalted butter and stir in 1/2 tsp. of pure vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon. Pour the butter over the almond flour mixture and toss the topping lightly until it’s evenly coated. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the peach filling.
Bake the peach crisp at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes, or until the filling is thick and bubbly and the topping is golden brown. Serve the warm peach crisp with a big scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt for a tasty, cool dessert.
