These healthy peach crisp bars with almond flour crumb topping are gluten-free, naturally sweetened and packed with juicy peaches! The perfect guilt-free summer dessert to bring to parties, BBQs or picnics!
In a large mixing bowl, make crust + topping: whisk together flours, starch, sugar, cinnamon, and sea salt. Then add chilled butter, using your hands or a pastry cutter to incorporate into dry mixture. Continue until butter is completely combined.
Stir in maple syrup and stir until mixture will clump together between your hands. Set aside.
Press 2/3 of the mixture evenly into the bottom of your greased baking dish. Press firmly until flat and even throughout. Then, layer peach mixture in one even layer. Crumble remaining flour mixture over top.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until fruit it bubbling and topping is browned. Cool for 25 minutes before serving. These bars are best served the same day.
EASY FLOUR SUBSTITUTION: For the cust/topping, instead of almond flour + rice flour + tapioca/arrowroot, you can use 2 1/2 cups all purpose gluten free or regular flour (no tapioca/arrowroot).
If you still want an almond crumb, you can use 2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup almond flour.
