Peaches are glorious right now and this is a delicious way to eat them - under the cover of a crisp crumb topping.

We have a nondairy-gluten-free version based on a recipe from Lauren Hoover, chef, and author of No Wheat No Dairy No Problem!

This is an easy but absolutely irresistible strawberry crisp! The naturally gluten-free topping is made right in the food processor with whole oats, spices, nuts, and butter or coconut oil (for a vegan version). It gets sprinkled on top of vanilla-laced strawberries. A touch of cardamom is optional, but it gives the crisp a beautiful aroma (try it!). Feel free to swap out the strawberries for other summer berries (or do a mix of several!), such as blueberries, raspberries and/or blackberries. It's important to let the crisp cool slightly before serving to allow the juices to thicken. Serve it with a dollop of whipped cream (or coconut cream) or ice cream for a dessert that will make you swoon! The crisp also makes for a fabulous breakfast when topped with plain yogurt.

These irresistible gluten free granola bars are packed with oats, coconut, flax, chia seeds and nut or seed butter, and are sweetened with maple syrup, honey and chopped dark chocolate. They’re similar in flavor to store-bought bars, but are much more nutritious and delicious (they pass the kid test with flying colors!). The bars are easy and fun to make, especially if you have little hands around to help you. Be sure to use quick cooking oats, not old-fashioned, which won’t hold together.
Healthful cookies with toasted nuts, gluten free oats, dried fruit, and a touch of honey.
For me, there are few aromas that are as enticing or welcoming as homemade granola baking in the oven—toasted oats and nuts, cinnamon, vanilla, almond and a hint of coconut… irresistible. This healthy, fiber-rich recipe is packed with wholesome ingredients and is lightly sweetened with honey (or you can use maple syrup or a mix of both). It comes together easily and makes a batch that’s big enough to last weeks. Be sure to let the granola cool completely before adding the dried fruit (you can use any dried fruits you like, although I’m partial to cherries and currants). Enjoy the granola with milk or yogurt for a healthy breakfast or snack, or sprinkle it over roasted fruit or frozen yogurt for a delicious and nutritious dessert!
When it comes to recipes I couldn't live without, these banana oatcakes rank high on my list of must-haves. They're a cinch to pull together, and they're a perfect grab-and-go breakfast or sweet snack. They're also sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free! The batter is made simply with old fashioned rolled oats, banana puree (made by blending whole bananas), nuts, flaxseed (for a bit of extra fiber), coconut oil and vanilla. You can cook them as they are, or doctor them up with chopped chocolate, raisins or dates. They can be stored in the fridge for up to a week (they're even better the next day), or in the freezer for a few months. I like to reheat them in the toaster oven before serving, allowing them to crisp up on top.

This gluten-free apple crisp is as welcome on a weeknight as it is at a dinner party! Whole and ground oats are used in place of white flour, and are combined with pecans, maple sugar and spices for a tantalizing topping that would be delicious draped over nearly anything (think berries in the spring, peaches in the summer…). It also has nearly half the sugar and butter of regular crisp recipes, but I promise you won’t miss them! A hint of cardamom and vanilla paste lend aromatic sweet warmth, but are optional. For a vegan version of the crisp, swap out the butter for coconut oil and serve the crisp with a dairy-free coconut ice cream. You can either bake the crisp in an 8x8-inch (or similar-sized) baking dish, or in smaller individual baking dishes. While the crisp takes slightly longer than an hour to make because of the baking time, the prep process is really easy!
