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.

So, inspired by my favorite Apple Crisp, Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp, and Oatmeal Chia Berry Crisp recipes, I whipped up this gluten free peach crisp in 20 minutes.

You can imagine my kids delight when I told them we were having dessert for breakfast!

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 a Peach Crisp. It’s so easy!

  1. Prep your peach filling by slicing peaches and combining them with chia seeds, a little gluten free flour, a hint of sweetener, and spices.
  2. Make the topping with gluten free oats & flour, a little more sweetener, and a dollop of coconut oil.
  3. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and serve right away, OR you can easily prep these ahead of time, and re-heat them in the oven or microwave the next morning, for a super speedy breakfast.

This Gluten Free Peach Crisp is super nourishing too!

  • The chia seeds & gluten free oats add a delicious dose of prebiotic rich fiber and healthy plant based omega-3s.
  • And, with 16 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per serving {if you top it off with Greek yogurt}, this peach crisp will keep your energy level humming all morning long!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4 servings


  • 4 ripe peaches, seed removed, and cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca flour*
  • 3 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3/4 cup gluten free oats*
  • 1/4 cup sorghum flour, or brown rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil
  • 2 cups yogurt , i.e. Greek, coconut, almond, soy~optional for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 4 ramekins or oven proof custard cups on a baking dish.
  • Combine peaches, chia seeds, tapioca flour, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, ground ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a mixing bowl. Stir well to combine, and spoon mixture, divided equally, into ramekins/custard cups.
  • Rinse out and dry mixing bowl. Add oats, sorghum flour, coconut oil, remaining maple syrup {2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons}, and 1/8 teaspoon salt to bowl. Stir well to combine, then divide mixture equally into 4 servings, and sprinkle on top of peaches.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until oat mixture is light golden brown. Remove from oven, and allow to cool 5 minutes before serving. Top each crisp with 1/2 cup yogurt if desired.


  1. Feel free to omit tapioca flour from peach mixture if desired. It helps thicken the peaches a little, but is not essential.
  2. May use regular oats if not following a gluten-free diet
  3. May substitute sorghum flour with rice flour. Or, use all-purpose flour if desired for a non-gluten free version.

  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

  2. This is a home run πŸ™‚ 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… πŸ˜‰
    Sprinkle some cinnamon on top and it’s good to go! Great easy breakfast to use up some peaches πŸ™‚

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

    1. Hi Tara! Nice to know I’m in such good company πŸ™‚ 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!

  4. 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!
