Warm, tender fruit nestled under a blanket of cinnamon-scented, crumbly topping is the very definition of summer dessert. In each bite of sun-kissed peaches, you can taste warm rains, and dirt, and languid afternoons. – Melissa Joulwan



  • 1 pound peaches (2-3 medium), cut into 1/2-inch dice (about 4 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 4 dried dates, pitted
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, chilled until solid, then diced
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the peaches, lemon zest, and lemon juice with a wooden
  3. spoon. Allow to rest at room temperature while you prepare the topping.
  4. Place almond flour, dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in food processor. Pulse until combined.
  5. Sprinkle the chilled coconut oil chunks over the flour. Pulse about 10 times, then process on high for 5-10 seconds, until there are no lumps.
  6. Pour the topping into a bowl and use a fork to mix in the sliced almonds.
  7. For an 8-inch square pan: Pour the fruit into the pan, pressing it gently into place with the back of a wooden spoon. Sprinkle the almond topping over the fruit and lightly press it into the fruit with the back of the spoon.
  8. For individual ramekins: Place 4 ramekins on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spoon generous 1/2-cup servings into individual ramekins, pressing the fruit into the ramekin with your hands. Press about 2 tablespoons of topping onto each ramekin.
  9. Cover the crisp lightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  10. Remove foil and bake 5-10 more minutes, until browned.
  11. Enjoy!
