Got ripe peaches? Run, don’t walk, to your kitchen to make this super easy gluten free peach crisp for breakfast ASAP! Gluten free or not, this is simply the best peach crisp recipe made with simple ingredients, plus it’s healthy to boot!

Not breakfast time? It’s ok if you make this gluten-free peach crisp for an afternoon snack or a summer dessert too! Or lunch. Or dinner. I’ve got you covered!

Trying to be much better about cutting back on food waste, I made this gluten free peach crisp for breakfast last Friday on a whim.

You see, I had discovered the “not quite ripe” peaches I bought on Monday, and had placed in a bag on the counter, had suddenly ripened in all their juicy glory.

They were *almost* past their prime, so what better way to salvage them from a trip to the trash can than to turn them into a delectable “dessert for breakfast” meal. This is such a great recipe that’s a real crowd pleaser, and a healthier option to traditional peach crisps or gluten-free peach crumble.

This Easy Peach Crisp is completely acceptable to eat for breakfast, especially when you top it off with yogurt! | Recipe @thespicyrd www.eastewart.com

How to make gluten free peach crisp. It’s so easy!

  1. Gather your ingredients (see below).
  2. Prep your peach filling by combining sliced peaches with chia seeds, a little gluten free flour, a hint of sweetener, and spices.
  3. Make the crisp topping with your dry ingredients-gluten free oats & sorghum flour-plus a little more sweetener and melted coconut oil.
  4. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and serve right away, OR you can quickly prep these ahead of time and reheat them in the oven or microwave the following day for a super quick breakfast.

Easy Ingredient Swaps & Recipe Notes

  • Swap sweet peaches with any fruit of your choice. For summer, other stone fruit, such as nectarines, plums, or apricots, would be delicious in this gluten free peach crisp recipe!
  • Chia seeds add nutrition and help thicken the fruit, but they are optional. So, feel free to omit if you don’t have them on hand.
  • Tapioca starch can be replaced with arrowroot starch.
  • Maple syrup can be swapped with honey. Other sweetener options include coconut sugar or brown sugar. Or, for a lower sugar version, try Lakanto Baking Monkfruit Sweetener.
  • Brown rice flour, almond flour, almond meal, oat flour, sweet rice flour, or any other gluten-free flour can be used in place of sorghum flour. Note: If you’re not following a gluten free diet, you may use whole wheat or all purpose flour.
  • Try cinnamon or cardamom instead of ginger. Add vanilla extract if desired.
  • You can replace virgin coconut oil with high oleic expeller pressed sunflower oil, olive oil, melted vegan butter (i.e., Earth Balance or Melt), or even regular butter.
  • Are you feeling indulgent? Top with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream for a healthy yet tasty dessert!
  • I make my peach crisp in individual ramekins, but you can bake it all together in an 8 or 9-inch baking dish.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. I would have never figured out that combo of ingredients. Excited to try this. Love all the GF/Paleo recipes I found on your site. -Anna

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks so much Anna! So happy you stopped by to say hi!

  2. This is a home run 🙂 I didn’t use coconut oil and it turned out perfect. I’d say it’s closer to 3 good sized portions instead of 4… 😉
    Sprinkle some cinnamon on top and it’s good to go! Great easy breakfast to use up some peaches 🙂

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      So glad you enjoyed the recipe Chase! And, I can totally respect you for turning it in to 3 portions instead of 4 🙂 Cheers!

  3. This is perfect. I just picked 50#s of peaches! This is the crisp I’m making!! Pinned. Making tonight!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      50#####s of peaches? I so wish we were neighbors so you could share some with me 🙂 🙂

  4. Kellie@foodtoglow says:

    Oh my days, this looks so good!! I am never of a mind to do baking for breakfast, but you may tempt me. Or I will have it for dessert. Question: I am a bit in love with malty-tasting brown teff flour. Is this a suitable sub for sorghum flour?

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks so much Kellie! And, I do hope I’ve tempted you to try this 🙂 I think subbing the sorghum flour with teff is brilliant! If you give it a try, let me know how it turns out!

  5. This looks delicious! Love that it’s so easy (and quick) to whip up! :]!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks Farrah! I’m all about “quick and easy” these days 🙂

  6. I absolutely love how healthy this peach crisp is!!!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks so much Laura!!

  7. Tara | Treble in the Kitchen says:

    Cutting back on food waste is ALWAYS something I’m working on. If I can’t use something fast enough…I usually try to freeze it. Regardless, this peach crisp looks so delicious. My kind of sweet breakfast!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Hi Tara! Nice to know I’m in such good company 🙂 It’s something I’m always working on as well. Your tip to freeze foods you can’t use right away is such a good one! Hope you get to make this peach crisp for breakfast soon!

  8. Elizabeth Shaw says:

    I am in love with this! Anything peaches you can surely count me in! I hate it when I do that, too! I put bananas, etc. in place to ripen quickly and then lo and behold, they do! HAH! Nice job on reducing food waste, such an important topic. One time I had such ripe peaches I turned it into a “peach pancake gravy” with a little cornstarch to make an alternative to syrup! YUM!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks Liz!! I know I can always count on you to come up with something super creative~like “peach pancake gravy”!!! Happy Monday friend 🙂
