Peach Oatmeal Cookie Crisp {Gluten-free}

Gluten-free Peach Oatmeal Cookie Crisp - The peaches are topped with oatmeal cookies in this cross between a cobbler and a crisp.

Peach Oatmeal Cobbler, Peach Oatmeal Cookie Crisp, Oatmeal Cookie Peach Crisp, Peach Delight… so many name ideas for this recipe. It was hard to come up with the appropriate name for this dessert I created recently.

I got the idea for a dessert like this from a friend a few years back, and then put my own twist on it. I asked my friends on Facebook for name ideas and received all of the above, and more. While it looks more like a “cobbler” does, the topping is nothing like a cobbler topping, which is biscuit-like. In this dessert, cinnamon, sugar and peaches are tossed together and topped with my favorite gluten-free oatmeal cookie dough and baked until cooked through. That’s right, instead of the usual sugar/butter/oats topping for a crisp, this is topped with oatmeal cookies! Served warm, with a scoop of ice cream, this dessert is a perfect summer dessert!

Baking Gluten-free Peach Oatmeal Cookie Crisp

I use a Medium Cookie Scoop to make it super simple to scoop the oatmeal cookie dough onto the peach filling. No mess and super fast!

Make sure you use certified gluten-free oats when you make this. I have several I’ve used and recommend:

I’ve tested this recipe with both Gluten Free Mama’s Almond Blend All Purpose Flour and gjJules flour blends and recommend either.

I love the simplicity of this dish, as it really allows the flavors of the peaches to shine. I’d love to hear from you if you try it out!

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg

Instructions
  1. Lightly spray a 9x13 glass baking dish with cooking spray.

Finding the topping really dry. Maybe we’re doing something wrong? Using coconut oil instead of butter, following everything else exactly. Any tips? Thanks!

(Smells like heaven though.)
