A few tips and frequently asked questions about making healthy peach crumble bars
Do I need to use fresh peaches for the peach filling?
Jarred peaches may be swapped for fresh peaches. I wouldn’t recommend frozen peaches as they tend to hold more water and may make the filling watery.
Should I remove the skin prior to dicing the fresh peaches?
For this peach crisp bar recipe you do not need to remove the skin prior to dicing the peaches.
What kind of nut butter should I use for these peach crisp bars?
You can use your favorite nut butter for this peach pie bar recipe. Almond butter, peanut butter or cashew butter would be a perfect choice.
I chose pecan butter from my absolute favorite nut butter company Georgia Grinders. Pecan and peach just screamed southern peach pie to me!
I love the flavor that pecan butter gives these healthy peach crumble bars. Pecan butter has a rich pecan flavor that pairs beautifully with the fresh peach filling.

Using a food processor, pulse all of the oatmeal crust ingredients together. Once made into a mealy texture, press one half of the crust into an 8X8 glass baking dish lined with parchment paper.
Drain the peach mixture of excess liquid and add to second layer. You can add an additional sprinkle of coconut sugar to the peach layer.
Top with last layer of oatmeal crumble and then bake at 350F for about 40 minutes.
