How to Make a Gluten-Free Fruit Cobbler or Crisp
I adapted this super yummy gluten-free peach raspberry crisp recipe from an apple crisp recipe found in the Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen. It is one of my mother’s most used cookbooks of all time.
For this healthy gluten-free fruit crisp variation, I used fresh peaches and raspberries instead of apples, an almond meal instead of flour, maple syrup instead of honey, and I left the spices out. But you are welcome to add any you think would taste delicious.
My daughter didn’t like spices at the time, and I was pleasantly surprised by how good the peach raspberry crisp recipe was without them, so I decided to share it with you. But you are welcome to add any you like to it.
We’ve also made this healthy fruit crisp recipe with blueberries added to it, which is absolutely delicious, so you might also like to try that variation. I hope your family enjoys this healthy kid-friendly dessert’s sweet, tangy flavor as much as mine does!

Gluten-Free Peach-Rasberry Crisp Cooking Instructions
Gather the ingredients from the gluten-free fruit crisp recipe on the list above, and follow the easy step-by-step fruit crisp cooking instructions below.
- Slice and peel the peaches (or apples).
- Pre-heat oven to 375.°
- In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, almond meal, nuts, seeds, and salt. Set aside.
- Melt the butter and maple syrup together in a small saucepan.
- Pour the melted butter and syrup into the bowl with oats and stir or fold to mix.
- Grease a 9×9 inch square pan.
- Place a layer of peaches (or apples) on the bottom of the pan.
- Toss raspberries (and or blueberries, blackberries) in to fill the gaps.
- Add half the oat and almond meal mixture on top of the fruit.
- Place another layer of fruit (peaches and raspberries, apples and blueberries, blackberries, etc.) on top of the oat mixture.
- Crumble the remaining oat mixture on top.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes uncovered @375° (cover if it crisps too quickly). The sides should be bubbling and the top golden brown when finished.
My family thinks this gluten-free cobbler recipe tastes delicious with the peels on or off. It is quicker and easier for kids to make this fruit crisp if you leave them on, but I like it better when the peaches or apples are peeled. I like to bake this gluten-free fruit crisp recipe in our convection oven to make a slightly crunchy yet deliciously chewy top to go along with vanilla ice cream–Yum!!
