Peach Crisp Recipe with vanilla ice cream

Peaches, Peaches, Peaches!

Millions of peaches, peaches for ME! Don’t you just love that song? It always gets stuck in my head, especially when I am eating peaches and I have been eating a lot of peaches lately. They are one of my favorite summer fruits and they are so good right now! I eat at least one a day.

I also love turning peaches into something magical. A few favorites include my Peach Raspberry Crumb Bars, Peach Pie, or this heavenly Peach Crisp. It is the BEST way to enjoy summer peaches. The juicy sweet peaches are so good with crispy cinnamon almond oat topping!

Picking the Perfect Peach

This crisp is best with fresh peaches. You can use frozen in a pinch, but fresh is always best!

Look for firm peaches that have a little give when gently pressed with your thumb. A good peach should smell sweet. Avoid peaches that have brown spots, shriveled skin, or peaches that feel mushy.

If the peaches are hard, you can place them in a paper bag with a banana. Close the bag and let the peaches ripen on the counter for a day or two. They should ripen beautifully!

How to Peel Peaches

Blanching is the best way to peel peaches. Sure, it takes a little extra time, but the skin will slip right off!

  • To blanch peaches, place 2 to 4 into a pot of boiling water for about 30 seconds.
  • Remove the peaches from the boiling water and immediately transfer to bowl of ice water.
  • The ice water bath will shock the peaches and stop them from cooking. The skin will peel right off! It’s magic!

How to Make Peach Crisp

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine sliced peaches with the flour, sugar, corn starch, and vanilla. The cornstarch will help the juicy peaches thicken up. Gently stir and pour into prepared dish.
  • To make the topping, make sure you start with COLD butter.
  • Combine the oats (use old-fashioned oats for the best texture), brown sugar, flour, salt, and cinnamon. Stir until well combined and the brown sugar clumps are broken down. Add the cold butter pieces and mix in with your hands until you have a crumbly mixture.
  • Stir in the chopped almonds. The almonds add a nice crunch!
  • Evenly sprinkle the crisp topping over peach filling and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly!
  • Remove from the oven, place on a wire rack, and cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Serving Suggestions

I also like a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! You can’t go wrong with a bowl of warm Peach Crisp and vanilla ice cream. I love when the ice cream starts to melt into the crisp! Mmmm! The perfect summer dessert!

This crisp is technically a dessert, but if you find yourself eating it for breakfast, don’t be ashamed. It has almonds, oats, and fruit. Sounds like a breakfast of champions to me!

How to Store

The crisp is best the day it is made, warm out of the oven, but it will keep in the refrigerator for up to two days. Reheat before serving in the oven or microwave.

  1. Crisps are my go-to Summer dessert, because they are so simple and delish! I’ve actually never tried a peach version, but I bet this is SO bomb with those nuts! Pinned!

  2. I made an apricot crisp last week, so will definitely have to try this one now! Do you leave the skins on the peaches, or peel them?

    I did complete the survey (although I am in the UK) and FYI I found that the question asking you to tick the box if you have recently bought blue diamond almonds or almond milk can’t be left blank… so you will find 100% of responders will say they have bought one even if they hadn’t, which may mess up your results. Maybe adding a “neither” option would solve that?

    And on the off-chance I win the visa card, I am coming to the US this fall for a vacation, so a dollar based visa card would still be super appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I leave the skins on because they don’t bother me, but you can peel the peaches if you don’t like the skin. Thanks for letting me know about that question. I will see if they can change it!

  3. These almonds sounds ah-mazing! I love peaches and have been eating two everyday. I need to make thus crisp now!

  4. Completed the survey. I have made your peach blueberry crisp, it’s the best recipe I’ve ever tried and I’ve made many!

  5. I completed the survey. This recipe sounds great. I was looking for a dessert for Wednesday night and I just found it here! Thank you!!

  6. Peach Crisp is one of my favorite things in the world and those almonds look like PERFECTION!! The perfect addition.

  7. Love the use of peaches in this crisp! I have an abundance sitting in my kitchen right now so now I know what to make with it ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I did the survey. Going to make this tonight with the peaches on my counter…probably the last ones of the season…boo hiss!

  9. Completed the survey. Love your recipes, I usually get them off Facebook. Looking forward to making this recipe as I LOVE both peaches and cinnamon almonds. I also love cobblers with vanilla ice cream.

  10. I did the survey.

    Millions of peaches, peaches for FREE!
    Holy moly, I haven’t heard the presidents of the united states in years!! I loved that song when I was younger!! Ha, good times!

    This recipe looks delicious! I’ll have to try it, thanks a lot!

    You’re going to have me singing that song now while I’m baking this.
    Moving country gonna get me lots of peaches… ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I completed the Blue Diamond survey..,and will definately make the Peach Crumble with Blue Diamond honey almonds and vanilla ice cream!!

  12. I love getting new ideas from 2 Peas. Sometimes I have trouble having enough time to read as much I want to (or cook as much as I want to.

  13. I did the survey. And I was just surveying all the peaches on the counter picked from our trees and our daughter’s, and said that I’ve got to look up a Peach Crisp recipe and make it tomorrow. And there your yummy recipe is! Made me feel like a spoiled brat to get my wish almost instantly fulfilled!

  14. I completed the survey and love your recipes, your blog, and your dedication to fitness and balance in life.

  15. I completed the survey!
    Thanks for the great recipe.
    I plan on making it next week for company.
    Why do you add the corn starch to the fruit?
    I have never done that before when making fruit crisps.
    Thank you.

  16. did the Blue Diamonds survey. Will try the honey cinnamon almonds for this recipe. This one sounds easy to make and good flavors. thanks for the foodies

  17. Sometimes there’s nothing better than fruit and a crumb topping. Case in point, this crisp. Simple perfection!

  18. The farmers market the weekend before last was packed to the rim with peaches! They were everywhere! I’ve got to go back and get more because we went right through them…ok I…I went right through them and I need to make this!

  19. Where do you purchase the Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Cinnamon almonds? I have gone to four grocery stores near me and none of them carry this flavor. I am anxious to try them, and to try this recipe out. If I cannot find them, I am thinking I might have to try the recipe with the Coconut flavored almonds, my favorite.

    I also took the survey. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Did you try Target? If you can’t find them, the coconut ones would be good or their plain almonds!

  20. Yum!! Glad I pulled up the recipe so I could see the chance to take the survey. Just completed it. Can’t wait to try this!!

    1. I recommend using cold butter to create a thick streusel topping. You work the butter into the other ingredients.
