Low-Sugar and Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Peach Crisp!
In Utah, peaches are amazing when they’re in season, 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:
(Scroll down for complete recipe with nutritional information.)
- 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.
- Spray the slow cooker with nonstick spray before you put the peaches in.
- 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.
- Mix together the almond flour (affiliate link), oatmeal, sweetener of your choice, brown sugar or Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link), cinnamon, nutmeg, and grated butter to make the topping.
- Spread the topping over the peaches in the slow cooker.
- 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!)
- Then cook on high for 2 hours. You can see from this photo how the paper towel helps absorb the moisture.
- 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.

I used my Crock-Pot 3-1/2-Quart Slow Cooker (affiliate link) for this recipe, but any size close to that would work. I used make this recipe with partly sweetener and a touch of brown sugar, but now that I've discovered Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) I would use all Monkfruit sweetener instead. Look for Almond Flour (affiliate link) at Costco if you have a Costco near you! Nutrition information is automatically calculated by the Recipe Plug-In I am using.

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 original South Beach Diet. It would probably still be too high in carbs for a low-carb diet plan.
