  • 1/2 Cups Spelt Flour
  • 1/2 Cups Old-fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 Cups chopped Pecans, Almonds, Walnuts or other nuts
  • 1 1/2 to 2 Tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 Pinch of Salt
  • 1/3 Cups Organic Cane Sugar

  • 3 Large Peaches, organically grown, always better
  • 3 Tbsp. Butter, unsalted
  • 1/3 Cups of Plain Yogurt, Greek-style is better
  • 3 to 4 Tbsp. Water

When you have more peaches than you can use before they start going bad, this recipe will be ideal. Peaches are sweet and juicy naturally, so there is already a lot of flavor in them. Little needs to be added to make this dessert divine. Give it a try and don’t be afraid to replace honey with agave syrup, maple syrup or another type of sweetener. Most people choose to use peaches raw in this kind of a dessert, but I prefer to cook them down with a little bit of water and honey. This approach really makes the peaches taste great, and the honey adds that additional complexity to the fruit.

Instructions

  1. 1Slice your peaches into quarters and half them. Put a heavy saute pan or a skillet on medium heat and add your peach slices. Add about 3 or 4 table spoons of water and the honey. Combine it all and stir occasionally to make sure peaches are cooked evenly. (Note: I prefer to use a cast iron 3 qt. casserole with a cover to make this in).
  2. 2Turn on your oven, and set it to 350 deg. F.
  3. 3Combine all dry ingredients together and mix well. Add butter cut into small cubes and work it into the mixture with your hands. Now add the yogurt and stir it well.
  4. 4When a little liquid is left and the peaches appear soft and give off a light and sweet aroma, turn the heat off. Level out the peaches and spread your mixture over the top of the peaches.
  5. 5Put your saute pan, skillet or a casserole into the oven and if you have a top, put it on. Cook for about 15 minutes with top on. Remove the top and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the top is brown and crusty looking.
  6. 6Let cool to room temperature and enjoy!
