Yum! This is a delicious tweak of a recipe that we made before; Baked Pear with Granola. Follow this link to see the original recipe: https://marialuciabakes.com/2016/05/25/baked-pear-with-granola/
The summer is full of sweet delights; with peaches being just one more of those delicious fruits that taste amazing only really when they’re in season and at the peak of ripeness. A bland, floury peach is a real disappointment so, as much as I’d love to have them all year round, I stick to my little pocket guide that tells me when most fruits and vegetables are in season in Ireland. You can easily find all of that information online through one quick search. I really recommend keeping an eye out for what is in season in Ireland as it will taste miles better than the stuff coming from half way across the globe and it’s nearly always cheaper too!
So now that that’s out of the way, please do try these baked peaches, they taste absolutely divine 🙂 Even after years of running a business making granola, I am still in love with the mixture of sweet fruit, tangy plain yogurt and crunchy granola for breakfast and nearly even more so as a dessert treat. It’s a combination made in heaven. I hope my dinner guests still appreciate it as much as I do 😉 I’ve used our Ancient Grains Granola in this variation of the original recipe. It’s completely oat free, meaning that it is suitable for all coeliacs.
120g Ancient Grains Granola
3 flat peaches (sometimes called donut or Saturn peaches)
100 ml of fruit juice (we used a cloudy apple juice but use whatever you like or have)
300g natural yogurt
- Preheat the oven to 180°C
- Cut the peaches in half and take out the core (I cut them at their widest circumference but there is no right or wrong way)
- Place peach halves on a small baking tray and pour the juice on top
- Cover with tin foil and place in the oven. The baking time can vary from 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the ripeness of the fruit to begin with. The fruit should come out as tender but not pulpy, so the best thing is to test it during the baking by probing the fruit with a knife
- Take the peaches out of the oven, let them cool off slightly before placing them on a serving dish
- Put a spoonful of yogurt on each half, drizzle with the left over juice and sprinkle the granola on top
- Enjoy while the fruit is still slightly warm
