Baked Peaches are DELICIOUS and EASY! Fresh peaches with maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon, baked until warm and tender. Add ice cream or caramel or enjoy them just as they are!

Ingredients

  • 3 fresh, very ripe peaches — halved and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tablespoon brandy — bourbon, or rum (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar or light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Vanilla ice cream, Greek yogurt, or heavy cream, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9x9-inch or similarly sized baking dish that’s large enough to hold the peach halves in a single layer with nonstick spray. Pick a dish that's sized to where your peaches fit comfortably side by side, but there isn't too much excess room around them. Arrange peaches cut-side up in the dish.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the oil, maple syrup, brandy, coconut sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Spoon the mixture over the peaches, filling the center and letting it run over the sides.
  3. Bake peaches, uncovered, until the peaches are cooked through and fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Serve warm, topped with vanilla ice cream, Greek yogurt, or a pour of heavy cream, as desired.

Recipe Notes

  • TO STORE: Place your Baked Peaches in an airtight container in the refrigerator for four to five days. You can also place any maple cinnamon topping you may have leftover in the refrigerator and use it to top the peaches when you reheat them. 
  • TO REHEAT: Lay your Baked Peaches cut side up in a bowl or on a plate, and microwave gently for 30 seconds or longer as needed. You can also reheat your peaches in a baking dish in the oven at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.  
  • TO MAKE VEGAN: Use maple syrup.
  • TO MAKE PALEO: Omit the coconut sugar and use an extra tablespoon of honey or maple syrup.
