Healthy Peach Bar Ingredients

To make the recipe, you’ll need flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, sweetener, butter or coconut oil, cornstarch or arrowroot, and diced peaches.

Bars use white all-purpose flour, spelled flour, some brands of gluten-free all-purpose flour, or oat flour for peach oatmeal bars. I have never tried whole wheat or almond flour, so I recommend it over coconut flour here.

For peach bars without refined sugar, choose coconut sugar, date sugar, or evaporated cane juice. Alternatively, for bars with no added sugar, you can use granular erythritol or xylitol.

Feel free to use a neutral granular sweetener or liquid sweetener in your peach fillings. Options include pure maple syrup, honey, agave, regular sugar, brown sugar, or stevia baking blend.

You can use butter or plant-based butter, softened coconut oil, or softened almond butter for the pastry crust or crumb topping. For a low-fat peach cobbler bar, replace the extra butter with 3 tablespoons of your favorite milk.

To make a vegan peach bar, simply use dairy-free butter or optional coconut oil and optional dairy-free milk. This bar, of course, contains neither eggs nor whipped cream.

Coconut oil gives it a slightly crumbly texture. Almond butter or low-fat milk options are slightly sticky. All variations are equally delicious.

Next on my baking list is experimenting with adding cream cheese to the filling to make a peach cheesecake bar.

Frozen peaches, raw peaches, canned peaches

The great thing about this easy homemade peach dessert is that you can enjoy it all year round, not just during peach season.

Buy fresh peaches sliced ​​in the summer, and canned or frozen peaches if it’s not fruit season. Whether you use yellow or white peaches, peeled or unpeeled is up to you.

For peach bars using canned peaches, first drain the sliced ​​peaches. Wipe off excess water with a paper towel. Then it’s ready to use in recipes.

If using frozen fruit, thaw the slices first. Wipe off any remaining ice with a paper towel to prevent the finished peach bar from sticking.

You can also substitute some or all of the peaches with fresh or frozen strawberries, cherries, mangoes, raspberries, or blackberries to change up the taste of these summer dessert bars. Blueberry peach pie bar? Yes, please!

how to make a peach bar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an 8-inch square baking sheet with parchment paper or grease well. Set the pan aside.

Combine cinnamon, flour, salt, sugar and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. If using unsalted butter, or for the coconut oil version, add 4 more teaspoons of salt.

Add butter or oil and optional milk using a pastry cutter, wire whisk, or fork. You can also pulse the ingredients in a food processor for a quick and easy recipe.

Continue crumbling dough until small, uniform crumbles form.

Press half of the pastry dough firmly into the bottom of the prepared mold to form a crust, setting aside the rest of the dough.

In a new bowl, mix chopped peaches with cornstarch and 2 tablespoons sweetener. Spread this peach pie filling over the dough on the baking sheet.

Sprinkle the reserved dough evenly over it. Firmly press down on the top of the streusel.

Place the mold on the center rack of the oven and bake for 50 minutes. Peaches are bubbly and caramelized.

Allow the recipe to cool before slicing it into bars, as it will solidify as it cools.

Tips for using food scales

If you prefer to measure your baked goods in grams instead of the cups and tablespoons mentioned in the recipe box below, here are the gram measurements to use.

200 grams flour, 2 grams cinnamon powder, 130 grams sugar, 150 grams butter or coconut oil, 45 grams milk or additional fat source of your choice, 360 grams diced peaches (peeled or unpeeled), 6 grams cornstarch, 30 grams sweetener.

Don’t forget to add salt and baking powder. The amount is too small to measure with a food scale.

Firmly press about two-thirds of the dough into the bottom of an 8-inch mold lined with parchment paper. Mix peaches with cornstarch and liquid sweetener. Spread over the crust.

Let cool before slicing into bars.The coconut oil version is more crumbly, so we recommend chilling the peach bars before cutting for clean slicing.View nutritional information
