We are all about the fall harvest and preserving it lately! Last week I gave you my Corn Salsa recipe. This week I have been canning peaches, which I've already told you how to do on this post. But, of course, we have to eat some of those peaches right away and this Peach Crisp is one of the best ways to do that!
Because I was taking dessert to a family gathering on Sunday, I wanted to make my Peach Crisp dessert fit all of the dietary needs in our family, basically vegan and gluten-free. I thought it would be easy because I could use gluten-free flour to replace the regular wheat flour that I usually use. But, to my dismay I found out that I was out of gluten-free flour, so, I decided to substitute corn starch for the flour and it work out great. We always have vegan buttery spread around for Maddy, so that was a no brainer I thought. But, once again, the amount of buttery spread was down to dangerously low levels. I had to get creative again. I used the remaining vegan butter and then added the thick cream of coconut milk to fill it out. Once again, the results were awesome! That is how this Vegan Gluten-free Peach Crisp was born!
The prep work for this recipe happens in 2 steps. First, you peel and slice your peaches into a large pot. Then add the corn starch, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and a dash of salt and cook them until they are thick and bubbly. Then, pour them into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Be sure to spray it first!
Next, create the crumbly topping to put over the top. I used regular oats because my SIL isn't so sensitive to gluten that any cross contamination from processing will bother him. But, otherwise, you should use gluten-free oats.
Here is the printable recipe!
*Oh Dear! Recipe update! Be sure to put a Tablespoon of Cinnamon and a teaspoon of nutmeg in the oat mixture!
There is something extra wonderful about warm peaches! I hope you enjoy this fantastic peach dessert!
