Gluten free blackberry peach crumble

This amazing dessert is pretty simple… toss fruit with a thickener, a sweetener, and some acid, plus a pinch of salt, then mix together a quick dough with gluten-free flour and drop it on top, followed by sugar and nuts. You could just as easily use apples and add cinnamon and nutmeg at the beginning, or go for blueberries and raspberries. If you don’t have almond flour, use any gluten free flour. If you’d prefer a thicker sauce at the end (this version goes amazing over vanilla ice cream), double the cornstarch you add at the beginning and it will thicken up great. This is a very versatile recipe, allowing endless tweaks based on personal preference.
