Spring and summer are my favorite seasons for many reasons. These seasons mean warmer weather, outside activities and fresh produce. Peaches are beginning to come into season, and I’ve started to experiment with new ways to use them. I love peach pie and peach cobbler, but wanted a healthier, lighter option. These honey roasted peaches have all the sweet and juicy flavor of peach desserts without calorie-filled crust or crumble topping.
I love to eat these peaches warm on yogurt, or ice cream if I want to indulge. They are also delicious on top of pancakes or granola or, yum, on crepes (seriously, drooling right now thinking about a great European-style crepe with these peaches rolled up inside). Ripe peaches work best, but if your peaches are still firm, the roasting process creates a soft texture and sweetness. I can’t wait to try this technique with other fruits like strawberries, pineapple or even apples.
