First, mix up the peach filling. Wash and cut 8-10 peaches and coat with a mixture of brown sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch.
Next, mix up the oat crumble topping. Melt the butter and combine it with vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Add the gluten-free oats, gluten-free oat flour, salt, xanthan gum, sugar, baking powder, and lemon zest, and mix well.
Layer the peach filling in a greased 9×13 baking dish. Distribute the gluten-free oat topping evenly over the peach filling. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes until the topping is browned and the peaches start to bubble.

Difference Between Crisp, Crumble, and Cobbler?
Many wonder what makes a crisp, versus a crumble versus a cobbler? Let’s clarify. A crisp is a fruit dessert with a crispy topping made by combining oats, flour, butter sugar, and sometimes nuts.
A crumble is similar to a crisp but usually does not contain oats. These 2 terms are commonly used interchangeably.
A cobbler is a fruit dessert baked with a biscuit-style topping.
Can You Substitute Canned Peaches for Fresh?
Yes, you can use fresh, frozen, or canned peaches in this recipe. I prefer using fresh peaches in the summer months because they are so sweet and juicy. This gluten-free peach crisp can be made in the winter months using canned or frozen peaches when fresh peaches are not in season.
Do I Have to Peel the Peaches in this Gluten-Free Peach Crisp?
No. It’s really a matter of preference. I have tried this recipe with and without peach skins. The skin becomes soft and tender as it bakes.
I hope you enjoy this delicious summer recipe. Leave me a comment and let me know when you make it and how it turns out. I love to hear from you.
