Best Peach Crisp Recipe

  • Prep Time: 15 Minutes
  • Servings: 6

Here’s what you need:

Main Ingredients
  • Peaches:
  • 5 ripe peaches - or one 16-ounce can of peaches.
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar - to give the peaches a lovely, sweet coating.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract - vanilla and peaches are a delicious combination!
  • Topping:
  • ½ cup whole oats
  • ½ cup almond flour - to bring extra nuttiness and nutrients into the crisp topping! If you’re allergic to nuts or don’t have almond flour at home, you can use wheat flour instead.
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup crushed walnuts - for that extra crunch! You can use whole walnuts, place them in a bag and use something to gently hit and crush them into smaller pieces. You can leave out the walnuts if you want to, or substitute them for pecans or hazelnuts, for example.
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon - this warming spice will make this recipe so delicious and irresistible!
  • ½ teaspoon salt - to make all the amazing flavors pop!
  • ¼ cup firm coconut oil - this will hold the crisp topping together.


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F and grease the cobbler with coconut oil.
  • Wash the peaches and cut them into slices, removing the pits. Add the slices into a bowl and mix with a tablespoon of brown sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • Next, place the peaches into the greased cobbler.
  • Make the topping in another bowl. Combine the oats, almond flour, brown sugar, crushed almonds, cinnamon, and salt. Mix the firm coconut into the mixture using your hands. The mixture should be moist and crumbly.
  • Sprinkle the topping on top of the peaches evenly.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes. The fruit should be soft and the topping golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let sit for at least 5 minutes. Serve with vegan vanilla ice cream.

Top Tips

  • If you want to make this recipe with ripe peaches, buy the peaches in advance. It is usually hard to find perfectly ripe peaches in the grocery stores, so plan to get them 2-3 days before baking this recipe. 

    When mixing the ingredients for the topping together, it is important that the coconut oil is firm. If your coconut oil is liquidy, measure the needed amount and pop it into the fridge to harden. This way the coconut oil will be ideal for mixing and keeping the topping together. 

    If you’re making this peach crisp recipe on a tight schedule or for guests, you can always make the peaches and the topping ready and then lay them into the cobbler and pop it into the oven when it’s the time. Doing the work in advance is a great way to have more time with the guests!

    Once you take the vegan peach crisp out of the oven, give it around 5 minutes to cool and settle. The ideal temperature for eating is when it’s still nice and warm, but the ice cream doesn’t melt on top of it right away when added. 

    Store your vegan peach crisp in the fridge for up to a week. You can also freeze it - just make sure to seal it well. Allow it to come to room temperature after taking it out of the freezer and reheat at 350°F for 5-10 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

It sure does! Thanks to the almond flour and walnuts, this vegan peach crisp recipe contains many minerals and lots of protein. The oats and the peaches deliver a great amount of fiber and the peaches also contain several important micronutrients, such as vitamins C, A, and K.
It is easy to make this vegan peach crisp with only natural sugar. You can replace the brown sugar with maple syrup, for example. If you want to make this recipe completely sugar-free, you can use a sweetener, like this Sweet Like Sugar Sweetener. Just remember though, peaches contain sugar, so the recipe itself cannot be completely sugar-free.
The peaches give out some liquid during the baking, and if the oven is not hot enough or the peach crisp is not in the oven long enough, it could result in a runny and soggy dessert. Make sure to use the right temperature and to put a timer to have the perfect texture. Also, it will firm up when you let it sit for at least 5 minutes after taking it out of the oven.
