Peach Crisp

Peach Crisp made with Gluten-free Rolled Oats

I was cleaning out my pantry when I noticed that I had a can of peaches tucked in the far back. I don’t usually buy canned fruit and I couldn’t remember why I had purchased them in the first place. It was probably for some recipe that I never got the chance to make. I then was craving some sort of a warm peaches desert. I put them aside and kept organizing until I came across a big bag of rolled oats. There it was, a savory peach crisp waiting to be made.

I continued to clean, taking out each ingredient one by one, laying them out onto the counter. When I was finished, I got started on my dessert. As it was baking, my kids ran downstairs from their virtual learning sessions, asking me if I was making cookies and if they could have one. Much to their surprise, they became more excited after they found out what I was baking. Dessert was served before dinner that night and my husband and kids had no problem with that. Now I can’t wait to make a baked salted caramel apple crisp with fresh picked apples from our local farmers market.
