This almond peach crisp is super easy to make and tastes as delicious as it looks! It's also gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and paleo! The grain-free topping is more dense than a traditional crumble. Part rolled oats could be used in place of the desiccated coconut and almond flour (e.g. omit the coconut and use 1 cup oats plus 1/2 cup almond flour plus 1/2 cup sliced almonds plus the remainder of the topping ingredients). It's all up to you! Whatever you choose, you have to try making this almond peach crisp –– it will definitely be a crowd pleaser at any family holiday party!
