It’s peach season and these grilled peaches make the best summer dessert!
Fresh peaches offer a ton of flavour from their natural sugars which come out when grilled.
Topped with an easy oat crumble and vanilla ice cream, I think you might want to make these this weekend! Grilling summer fruits is one of the best ways to bring out their natural flavours.
Peaches are great for grilling because they are sturdy enough to hold up to the grill.
And, when they’re in-season it’s a pretty magical dessert in no time!
How to make grilled peaches
Grill pan or barbecue: You can use a grill pan or a barbecue to make this dessert making it very versatile. You’ll want the grill to be fairly hot to get those lovely grill marks!
Olive Oil: Make sure to brush olive oil on the peaches just before grilling so they don’t stick.
Peaches: You’ll want just-ripe peaches that still have a bit of a firm touch to them; this makes it easier to slice. Use a small, sharp knife to cut the around the peach through to the pit. Then, hold the peach in your hands and twist gently until the two halves separate.
Honey or Maple Syrup: Amps up the natural sweetness when drizzled on the peach slices just as they come off the grill.
Oat Crumble: A mixture of oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and flour for a quick oat topping that adds the perfect crunchy topping to the peaches.
So let’s make your new favourite summer dessert!
Grilled Peaches with Oat Crumble & Vanilla Ice Cream
Grilled peaches are a simple & delicious summer dessert! Topped with an oat crumble & vanilla ice cream for the perfect summer bite.
- 4 peaches, pitted and cut in half
- olive oil
- honey or maple syrup for drizzling
Oat Crumble Topping
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tbsp all purpose flour
For the oat crumble topping: mix all topping ingredients together, spread an even layer on a baking sheet and broil on low for 3-4 minutes until bubbling and starting to turn golden brown. Set aside to cool. Break into crumbs before serving.
For the peaches: Once peaches are pitted and halved, preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat and brush with olive oil. Grill the peaches for 3-4 minutes until char marks appear, then flip and grill another 3-4 minutes.
Remove from the grill and drizzle generously with honey or maple syrup. Serve warm with ice cream and oat crumble.
*Sometimes peaches can be difficult to halve. If you've got a tough peach, you can simply slice the peach instead and grill the slices. Then top with the crumble and ice cream!
When those peaches come off the grill, drizzle them generously with honey or maple syrup. Then serve immediately with ice cream and don’t forget the oat crumble!
These grilled peaches are such a treat in the summertime because they involve very little cooking.
So, fire up the grill and get those peaches on! Such a perfect way to celebrate one of the fruits of summer.
Until the next cooking adventure,
