This easy recipe for grilled cinnamon peaches is quick to make and absolutely delicious.
This is a great way to turn the humble peach into something a little more showstopping. The flavours of the peaches, cinnamon and coconut sugar work beautifully together and result in a comforting, yet light dish.
This is a really versatile recipe as it works well as a light breakfast or snack but you could also make this on an evening and enjoy it as a healthy dessert. For breakfast, why not try this with additional granola and yogurt and, for dessert, use crumbled up gluten free ginger biscuits instead of granola and serve with a dairy free vanilla ice cream. I think this would work really well as the base for some kind of peach crumble or crisp so I do plan to experiment with this recipe more in future.
The lovely hint of citrus from the lemon thyme works so well in this recipe, however, this ingredient is completely optional so you can omit it entirely if needed. Alternatively, you could experiment with flavour pairings and try this using regular thyme instead.
I have noted that this recipe serves two people, however, I have eaten this amount to myself multiple times in the past, it just depends on how big your appetite is. It is easy to increase the serving size of this recipe by simply sticking to the rule of one tablespoon of granola and half a teaspoon of coconut sugar per peach. Use your intitiative when coating the peaches in melted butter and sprinkling the cinnamon over the top of them.
If you want to make these but you do not have any coconut sugar to hand, this recipe will work well with a light brown sugar too. You could use white if this is all you have in but brown sugar is the best substitute and will not affect the taste.
If you want to try this recipe but peaches are not really your thing why not make my Cinnamon Baked Apples instead? These peaches are best eaten when they are freshly made, and, as they are so quick and easy to throw together there shouldn’t really be a need to make them in advance.
