Low-Sugar and Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Peach Crisp found on KalynsKitchen.com

In Utah, peaches are amazing this time of year, and when my friend Trina brought me some gorgeous peaches recently, I was excited to try the recipe for Slow Cooker Peach Crisp I’d spotted on my friend Karen’s blog, 365 Days of Slow + Pressure Cooking.  Karen is young, gorgeous, and skinny, so she probably doesn’t care about the whole low-sugar thing, but I wanted to create a version of peach crisp without much added sugar, and since I was adapting Karen’s recipe anyway, I thought I’d substitute almond flour to turn the recipe into Low-Sugar and Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Peach Crisp.

Desserts are not my specialty, but I was thrilled with how this turned out.  (Well, maybe a little *too* thrilled, since I ate the two servings you see in these photos with in a few minutes after I finished photographing them, and the leftovers didn’t last long in the fridge either.)  If you have fresh peaches, you must make this right away!

Steps for Making Low-Sugar and Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Peach Crisp:

(This is just a summary of the steps shown in the photos above; scroll down for complete recipe.)

  1. I used six small peaches to make 4-5 generous servings of peach crisp.  (A few more wouldn’t hurt if you have a lot of peaches.) Peel peaches and cut into slices or half-slices.
  2. Spray the slow cooker with nonstick spray before you put the peaches in.
  3. I’m not a baker, so I don’t have a pastry cutter, and I don’t use butter often so it’s always in the freezer at my house.  I solved that problem by grating the frozen butter on the large side of a cheese grater.
  4. Mix together the almond flour, oatmeal, sweetener of your choice, brown sugar or Golden Monkfruit Sweetener, cinnamon, nutmeg, and grated butter to make the topping.
  5. Spread the topping over the peaches in the slow cooker.
  6. Then put a paper towel over the top of the slow cooker and cover it with the lid.  (This tip was from Karen, visit her blog for more great tips like this one. Thanks Karen!)
  7. Then cook on high for 2 hours.  You can see from this photo how the paper towel helps absorb the moisture.
  8. Serve hot. This would be great with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if you want to splurge on that, but I thought it was really delicious just as is.

Low-Sugar and Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Peach Crisp

Low-Sugar and Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Peach Crisp is delicious made with fresh peaches.


  • 6 peaches, peeled and cut into slices
  • 1/4 cup butter (frozen if you don’t have a pastry cutter)
  • 1/3 cup almond flour (I used Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour)
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (be sure to use gluten-free rolled oats if you need it to be gluten-free)
  • 1/3 cup sweetener of your choice
  • 2-3 T brown sugar (or see notes for a low-carb sweetener with brown sugar flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of freshly-grated or ground nutmeg


  1. Spray the inside of a 3.5 or 4 quart slow cooker with nonstick spray.
  2. Wash peaches, peel off skins, remove pits, and cut the peaches into slices.
  3. Put sliced peaches in an even layer in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  4. If you don’t have a pastry cutter, use a large grater and grate the frozen butter into a small bowl.
  5. If you have a pastry cutter, just add the softened butter and cut it into a few pieces with a knife.
  6. Add the Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour, rolled oats, sweetener of your choice, brown sugar or Golden Monkfruit Sweetener, cinnamon, and nutmeg and use a pastry cutter or a fork to combine the mixture until it’s well mixed.
  7. Sprinkle the topping mixture over the peaches.
  8. Put a piece of paper towel over the top of the slow cooker so it’s completely covered, then put the lid over that.
  9. Cook on high for 2 hours.
  10. Remove lid and paper towel carefully so the accumulated liquid doesn’t drip down into the peach crisp.
  11. Serve hot, with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
  12. This will keep for a day in the refrigerator, although you may have a hard time not eating it all right away.


I used my Crock-Pot 3-1/2-Quart Slow Cooker for this recipe, but any size close to that would work. I used to add a touch of brown sugar to most of my baked goods, but now that I’ve discovered Golden Monkfruit Sweetener I would use that instead.

This recipe adapted from Slow Cooker Peach Crisp at 365 Days of Slow Cooking.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Slow Cooker Peach Crisp could never be sugar free, because the peaches are naturally sweet, but made with an approved sweetener, I would eat this for a “once-in-a-while treat” for Phase 2 or 3 of the South Beach Diet. It would probably still be too high in carbs for a low-carb diet plan.

  1. This tastes good, but even with putting a paper towel under the lid, it didn’t crisp up. More like peach mush. 😉

    • No things can’t get crisp in the slow cooker, but the towel helps so it’s not swimming in liquid. You’d have to make it in the oven if you want the top to get crisp.

  2. Angela, that would be fine. (If you check my copyright notice it states there that I give permission for that kind of use as long as the recipe is not reprinted. But thanks for asking!)

  3. This looks so yummy! Do you mind if I use a photo and link in a roundup post?

  4. Barb I don't think Blogger comments have ever supported them, at least I have never seen any.

  5. Hi Kalyn…I noticed that the emoticons I had in my comment don't show up and I was wondering why that was.

  6. Barb, so glad you liked it!

  7. Hi Kalyn…..the timer just went off on the slowcooker and I tasted it right away. ? I'm giving it two ??. I will be making this again for sure. I bet blueberries would be good too. I used Splenda granular and only used 1/4 c. I also used Splenda brown sugar and used 1 1/2 T. of it. I have a Hamilton Beach slowcooker that comes with 3 different sizes of crocks (a 2, 4 and 6) and I used the 2 qt. and it was perfect. Thanks again Kalyn for another keeper recipe.

  8. I can't say for sure how it will be without the butter, but I have to think it would still be pretty good!

  9. can I ommit the butter?

  10. Nupur, you *need* a slow cooker, even if you only use it to cook beans. But baking will definitely work.

  11. Ooh Ooh I'll have to try this while peaches are still in season here! But I don't have a slow cooker- I'll bake it in a cast iron pan or something.

  12. Joanne, that's true, although I think this would need a little added sugar for the topping.

  13. Peaches can be so sweet that you wouldn't want to mask their natural flavors with excess sugar anyway! Looks delicious.

  14. Lydia, as I said, this might have been a little *too* good!

  15. I have yet to make a great dessert in the slow cooker, though I've tried. This recipe looks like guaranteed success! I have pears from my trees, waiting to have something done with them….
