Grain-Free Peach Crumble Cookies Recipe

Chocolate chip cookies are a favorite of mine, and I have been missing them so much since I cut out honey and maple syrup. I’ve been using a homemade apple syrup to sweeten things, but that doesn’t really go well with a chocolate chip cookie, plus, I don’t have any safe chocolate chips to use. For my food bloggers challenge this week, I needed to create something using peaches. The first thing that came to mind was cookies – since I haven’t been able to eat them in so long, I am of course thinking about them a lot.

For this recipe, I took the idea of my Red, White, And Blue Crumble and turned it into a cookie! I know I’m a little biased because I made them, but I can honestly say that they are one of the best cookies I have ever had, and I really don’t miss chocolate chip ones since eating these. They are slightly crispy on the outside, yet moist on the inside. And, they literally taste like a peach crumble. You’re welcome ;)

Grain-Free Peach Crumble Cookies Recipe

Makes about 18 cookies.



1 lb (16oz) peaches – fresh or frozen

3 cups almond flour

¼ cup softened ghee (You can also use butter or coconut oil.)

¼ cup honey (You can also use maple syrup or apple “honey”, which is what I used. The apple “honey” would make this recipe sugar-free, with the exception of the natural sugar in the fruit.)

2 teaspoons alcohol-free vanilla extract

3 teaspoons cinnamon

¼ teaspoon baking soda

⅛ teaspoon sea salt

3 tablespoons ground flaxseed + 6 tablespoons water (or use 1 egg) – I did not use this ingredient in mine, but have added it here as an optional ingredient because a few of my cookies fell apart. I thought an egg or egg replacer may help with that. If you decide not to include this ingredient, add 2 more tablespoons of ghee/butter/coconut oil so that you have enough liquid in the recipe.


Making It:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. If the peaches are frozen, defrost them, then dry up as much of the liquid from them as possible. If the peaches are fresh, peel them. Then slice the peaches into tiny pieces
  3. Mix all of the ingredients together.
  4. Put dough in 1” balls on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, then flatten slightly.
  5. Bake for about 15-17 minutes.




  1. I’ve never used ghee before. I need to give this a try.

  2. […] 22. Peach Crumble Cookies It’s not too often you see peach being used in a cookie, and here they’ve managed to make it delectable without the need for grains, dairy, or processed sugar. Of course this starts off with fresh peaches, and it uses almond flour instead of general purpose flour. The sweetness comes from honey, and the buttery flavor comes from ghee, two items that you’ll find on the Paleo approved foods list. Even the use of sea salt instead of refined salt makes a difference to your overall health and feelings of wellbeing. […]
