Peach Blueberry Crisp - Vegan, and Gluten-Free  ©Deborah Barr



8 ripe peaches, sliced


1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

1/2  cup brown rice syrup or honey  
1 tsp. ground cinnamon  

1/2 tsp. ground ginger

pinch of unrefined sea salt  

2 TB. kuzu or arrowroot


Crunch for Bottom and Topping


1 1/2 cps. gluten free rolled oats


1/2 cp. gluten free flour

1/2  cup brown rice syrup or honey  
1/2 cp. chopped almonds or walnuts  

1/3 cp. vegetable oil or coconut oil or Earth Balance

pinch of unrefined sea salt  




  1. Combine sliced peaches, berries, cup of water, and next five ingredients in a saucepan (dilute the arrowroot in cup cold water) and cook, stirring constantly until thickened, about 4-5 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, nuts and salt. 

  3. In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk the oil and rice syrup and add to the oat mixture. If using Earth Balance or coconut oil, melt it first.

  4. Oil a 6 x 10 baking pan. 

  5. With wet hands, press enough of the oat crust (about two-thirds) into the bottom of the baking dish to form a solid layer.  Pour fruit mixture evenly over the crust and sprinkle with the remaining crust.  Bake 20 - 25 minutes at 350 degrees until topping is golden brown.

Note: Apples, Pears & Raisins make a nice combination.  You can make this recipe with nearly any fruit.  Get creative and enjoy!

I don't usually add any sweetener to the peaches and berries.  The fruit is sweet enough for me.
