I made this 4 ingredient peach cobbler for Father’s Day last weekend and let me tell ya, it was a HUGE hit! I even made it gluten-free (see note below), and no one could taste the difference. Now it doesn’t take much scrolling around here to realize that I’m a huge fan of few-ingredient desserts. I’m talkin’ 4 ingredient banana bread, 5 ingredient healthy cookie dough, and 6 ingredient mug cakes. So ya, I’d say this 4 ingredient peach cobbler fits perfectly into that lineup!

What You’ll Need to Make This Recipe

Fresh Peaches: You’ll need 5-6 large fresh peaches, sliced. Fresh peaches provide the best flavor and texture, but you can also use frozen or canned peaches as an alternative.

Sugar: You can use regular sugar, or swap it for coconut sugar or monkfruit sweetener for a healthier option.

Self-Rising Flour: Use 1 cup of self-rising flour to create the cobbler topping. If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can use all-purpose flour with 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder added.

Butter: You’ll need ½ cup of melted butter for a rich and flavorful topping. For a dairy-free alternative, substitute with vegan butter or coconut oil.

Types of Peach to Use

  • Fresh peaches are ideal for the best flavor and texture. Simply peel, slice, and they’re ready to go.
  • Frozen peaches are a great alternative when fresh peaches are out of season. Thaw and drain them before using.
  • Canned peaches are convenient and work well in this recipe. Make sure to drain them thoroughly before adding to the pan, and leave the sugar out of the filling since canned peaches are already sweetened.

Adjust This Recipe to Your Dietary Needs

Make it Gluten-Free: Use self-rising gluten-free all-purpose flour in place of regular self-rising flour.

Vegan Option: Substitute melted butter with vegan butter or coconut oil.

Make it Sugar-Free: Replace regular sugar with monkfruit sugar or your preferred sugar substitute.

What You’ll Need to Make Summer Fruit Crisp

Summer Fruit – I used fresh blueberries, strawberries, and peaches in my summer fruit crisp, but any fruit will work! Feel free to use whatever you have on-hand, or whatever’s on sale at the grocery store that week. The only thing to note is, whichever fruit you use, make sure it totals to about 5-6 cups for this recipe.

Maple Syrup – This healthy dessert recipe is sweetened with maple syrup! It’s refined sugar-free and honestly so healthy you could get away with eating it for breakfast.

Rolled Oats – Any type of rolled oats will do – old-fashioned, quick cook, etc. The only type of oats you’ll want to avoid for your fruit crisp topping are whole oats, steel-cut, or Irish oats.

Almond Flour – The almond flour keeps this recipe gluten-free! However, if you don’t have almond flour, or want to make this nut-free, you can replace the almond flour with all purpose flour.

Butter or Coconut Oil – Use whichever you prefer in your crisp! I typically just use whichever I have on-hand. Coconut oil is obviously the healthier option, but butter adds a bit more flavor, which I love.

Tips and Tricks

  • Keep this recipe simple! You’ll only need one bowl, which is used to first mix together the filling, then the crisp. There’s no need to dirty any extra dishes for this healthy dessert recipe.
  • This summer fruit crisp is best served warm with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream on top. Though feel free to serve it however you’d like. On its own is delicious, or with a dollop of fresh whipped cream – yum!
  • Store leftover fruit crisp in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. If enjoying leftovers, I recommend reheating in the microwave for just about 30 seconds before eating.

Adjust This Recipe to Your Dietary Needs

Make it Dairy-Free: Use either non-dairy butter, or take the coconut oil option in the crisp.

Make it Nut-Free: For a nut-free dessert, replace the almond flour with 1/2 cup of all purpose flour.

What You’ll Need To Make Peach Crisp

Peaches – Use fresh, not frozen peaches for this easy crisp recipe! Slice each peach in half, remove the pit, then slice them into 1/4-inch pieces. Either leave the skin on or peel them before slicing, it’s up to you!

Corn Starch – Corn starch, arrowroot starch, or tapioca starch will all work in the filling of this recipe. A tablespoon of either thickening agent will help the filling stick together.

Rolled Oats – Any type of rolled oats will work! The only oats you should avoid are steel-cut and/or Irish oats. Or, for a paleo version of this recipe, replace the oats with extra almond flour and chopped nuts!

Tips and Tricks

  • Let the peach crisp cool for 5-10 minutes before serving! This’ll give the filling enough time to set, and prevent those peach juice from running out when served. Also, don’t forget to serve it with a big ole’ scoop of cold vanilla ice cream – it’s simply the BEST!

Adjust This Recipe To Your Dietary Needs

Make it Paleo: For a paleo fruit crisp, use arrowroot starch instead of corn starch in the filling, and replace the rolled oats with an extra 1/4 cup almond flour plus 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans.

Make it Gluten-Free: This recipe is already gluten-free! However, to ensure no traces of gluten in your peach crisp, be sure to use a gluten-free certified corn starch as well as gluten-free certified rolled oats.
