Baked Peaches Stuffed With Crunchy Oats

A bake peach cut in half with the seed removed. Inside is granola and honey topped with whipped cream.

My family and I spend summers in Montana and on weekends we love visiting the area farmer’s market. Sometimes we even set up a little booth for my youngest son to sell his homemade lemonade (he has a blast and it’s a great way to instill important life lessons). One thing we always do at the farmer’s market? Grab tons of fresh meats, veggies, and fruits! Well, this year, I’m heading straight to the peach stand so I can make this amazing baked peaches dessert recipe by Ciarra, founder of the food blog Peanut Butter Plus Chocolate.

These Baked Peaches Stuffed With Crunchy Oats are made with fresh ingredients—no refined sugar—and are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! While you can certainly make your own crunchy oats in the oven, if you don’t have the ingredients or time to prep a homemade mix then you can simply stuff each peach with your favorite store-bought granola. I promise your diners won’t be able to tell the difference!

Make these peaches for a weekend brunch treat or serve them as a healthy dessert. Since the Kentucky Derby is coming up, these are great to serve and fabulous if you are throwing a watch party! For an extra kick, add in a tablespoon of your favorite Kentucky bourbon! Jazz up your Derby party by pairing the baked peaches with my Low-Sugar Sangria!
