Peach Custard Granola Bake


  • 1 peach, halved
  • 1/2 cup granola (or oatmeal/leftover cookies) mixed with 1 finely chopped fig
  • 1/2 cup freshly made whipped cream, sweetened with1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 squirt of juice from a small lemon wedge
  • a pinch of fresh lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter or coconut oil, melted
  • Sprinkle finely chopped nuts or green apple with granola (optional)
  • 3 fresh mint leaves, finely chopped (reserve for garnish)


  1. Grill peach until grill marks appear. Turn off grill and close lid over peach so it softens.
  2. Mix granola with honey, fig and warm butter or coconut oil (serve over peach).
  3. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle mint on top.
    CUSTARD: To make the recipe above extra special, you can make homemade custard to drizzle on the peach:
  4. Melt 1 teaspoon butter in a saucepan and add finely chopped fig.
  5. Add 1/4 cup cream to the saucepan.
  6. Bring to a simmer.
  7. Slowly add half of butter and cream mixture to a bowl with an egg yolk, and whisk. (This is called “tempering.”)
  8. Pour egg yolk and the other half of the butter and cream mixture back into the original pan and turn off heat. Continue to whisk until thick.
  9. Drizzle on top of grilled or baked peaches and enjoy!
  10. For both recipes, peaches can be baked at 350°F for about five minutes instead of grilling, or until desired softness is achieved.
