Fruit crisps/bars/crumbles/cobblers are my favorite kind of desserts. I just loooove the warm layer of sweet juicy fruits combined with a buttery topping. So perfect!

Berry and apples (with cinnamon of course) are usually my go to fruits but boy, peaches may have just become my #1.

Is there anything more delicious than a warm juicy peach filling? I wish peaches were available all year round so I could make these babies (and the paleo cobbler coming this month!) again and again!

The ingredients for this one are not your typical flour + sugar + butter as I wanted to make them healthier, with more nutritious and wholesome ingredients (and keep them gluten free!).

The crust/topping base is made with almond flour (which adds a delicious flavor), rice flour and arrowroot flour.

That being said, if you prefer to use regular all purpose flour or all purpose gluten free flour instead of this mix, you definitely can. I understand that not everyone has all these ingredients on hands or willing to buy them, and I want everyyyyone to try these babies!! 😻 enjoy 🙂

Healthier Peach Crisp Bars {Gluten Free + Refined Sugar Free}

Cal: 184 - Protein: 3.6g - Fat: 10.6g - Carbs: 20.5g - Fiber: 2.3g - Sugar: 10g

Ingredients

    Crust + topping:
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour (see notes for easy all purpose regular or GF flour substitution!)
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour (see notes for easy all purpose regular or GF flour substitution!)
  • 1/2 cup tapioca or arrowroot starch (see notes for easy all purpose regular or GF flour substitution!)
  • 1/4 cup coconut or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Filling:
  • 4 peaches, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca starch or cornstarch

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Prepare a greased 9x13 baking dish (you can also use a 9x9 one).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, make crust + topping: whisk together flours, starch, sugar, cinnamon and sea salt. Then add cold and chilled butter, using your hands or a pastry cutter to incorporate into dry mixture. Continue until butter is completely combined. Stir in maple syrup and stir until mixture will clump together between your hands. Set aside.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, toss sliced peaches with lemon juice, coconut sugar and tapioca starch until well-coated. Set aside.
  4. Press 2/3 of the mixture evenly into the bottom of your greased baking dish. Press firmly until flat and even throughout. Then, layer peach mixture overtop in one even layer. Crumble remaining flour mixture overtop. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until fruit it bubbling and topping is browned. Cool for 25 minutes before serving. These bars are best served the same day.

Notes

* For the cust/topping, instead of almond flour + rice flour + tapioca/arrowroot, you can use 2 1/2 cups all purpose gluten free or regular flour (no tapioca/arrowroot).
If you still want an almond crumb, you can use 2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup almond flour.
