Here’s a yummy, simple, in-season recipe that will satisfy your sweet tooth without heating up your house. It easily adjusts to be dairy-free/vegan: just use coconut oil in place of the butter.
It’s great either way. Enjoy!
Crock Pot Peach Crisp
- 4 heaping cups sliced fresh peaches (I don’t peel them, but you can if you prefer.)
- 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2/3 cups flour (I use whole wheat.)
- 2/3 cups rolled oats
- 2/3 cups brown sugar (or sucanat)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup butter (not margarine)
Combine peaches with maple syrup, lemon juice and vanilla. Place in a greased 3 or 4 quart slow cooker.
In a bowl, mix remaining ingredients except butter. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over peaches and press down slightly.
Cover the crock pot with a paper towel. Put the lid over the paper towel and seal the crock pot.
Cook on HIGH for two hours. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

have you ever made this in the oven, I want to make some on
Thursday night but in the oven,
same amount for the ingredients listed?
for say a 9×12 casserole dish?
Thank you! I am going to try this soon. I LOVE using my crockpot.
Is the Maple Syrup a necessity or is there a substitution? I don’t care for it and don’t keep it in the house!
You could try using honey or sugar, or just leave it out completely.
If I were to use a 6 quart crock pot, I could probably double this, right?
It looks yummy and like the perfect recipe to take to our church lunches! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
I would double it if I was using a 6 quart. Should work fine!
This looks delicious. I love crockpot recipes. I’ll definitely give this a try. Yum!

My favorite dessert ot make in the crockpot is Apple Pie dessert—it’s a huge it with my husband and 4 teenagers!
This is so easy to make, and it takes only three ingredients.
Looks delicious! Can you tell me approximately how many peaches are in 4 cups?
Somewhere around 6 medium peaches. It definitely depends of the size of your peaches, though.
Or 7… Since it is 4 “heaping” cups. 🙂
Ah, yes…I see the family resemblence in the bio 🙂
😉 well, considering Crystal is WAY more amazing than me, I’ll take that as a huge compliment!
I see vanilla in the instructions but not listed in the ingredients. How much do you use?
I was wondering that too.
Good catch! It should be 2 teaspoons vanilla.
Perfect timing, I was needing a quick dessert recipe for company tonight! Except I’m going to try substituting apples, since our trees are abundant this year.

How did it turn out with apples? I was just wondering if that would work
I just purchased a box of peaches from the farm stand. I think I will make this for our dessert for our barbecue this weekend. Thanks for sharing your recipe, it looks really good.
Do you think it would make a huge difference if I used canned peaches instead?
I would guess it wouldn’t, although I haven’t actually tried it that way.
Why do you need to cover the crockpot with the paper towel?
It helps absorb the moisture on top, allowing the topping to get a little crispy while the underneath part stays yummy and gooey. 🙂
Could canned peaches be used????
I would think so, although I haven’t actually tried it. As long as they are drained well, you should be fine. Let me know if you try it and it works. 🙂

This looks delicious!
One question…why do you cover the crock pot with a paper towel? I use my crock pot all the time, and have never had a recipe call for that. It’s interesting! 🙂
I’ve used a paper towel a few times in order to soak up some of the moisture, so that the dessert doesn’t get “mushy”.
It helps absorb some of the moisture on the top so that the topping can get a little crispy on the edges, while still staying yummy and gooey underneath .:)
