That’s just Peachy!

June 17, 2011 in Sweets and Treats

Oh the peaches (and nectarines) were amazing! About half the size of a grocery store peach and about 100 times the flavor!

So good that hardly any made it into the house!

I did manage to wrangle about 12 of them and make a peach crisp, which got the double thumbs up from Shane!

 

PEACH CRISP (Adapted from ELANA’S PANTRY)

Approx. 12 small peaches or 6 large ones. Sliced ( I did not peel them)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons arrowroot powder

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups almond flour

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup honey

Toss peach slices with lemon juice, arrowroot powder, and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, salt, oil, and honey. Place peach mixture in a baking dish, and top with almond flour mixture. Cover and bake for 45 minutes at 350, then uncover and bake a few more minutes to get a nice crispy topping. Enjoy!

 

Side note:

I would seriously think twice before buying conventional peaches as they are heavily sprayed with pesticides which are detrimental to our long-term health. Feel free to google it if you do not believe me!

Here is a great list which shows which products are most heavily contaminated. For those at the top, buying organic should be your only option despite the little extra it costs.
