Serving Up a Single Serving of Peach Crisp

 

IMG_7549.JPG

Excuse me while I go buy more peaches so I can make seconds and thirds . . . . This Single Serving Peach Crisp is BOMB. It satisfies any dessert craving and you’re not tempted to eat the whole pan. It took make maybe 5 min to whip up and then I was immediately drooling as the fragrant smells of peaches, cinnamon and coconut filled my studio. It’s low in sugar, oil and butter free and just plain good. Can’t wait to try this with apples, maybe pears, and whatever else floats my fancy.

Late Summer Peach Muffins with a Pseudo-Streusel

IMG_7388.JPG

Happy meal prep! Class is about to start up again after a two week hiatus. Having 9 am to 9 pm class on Mondays is going to be a wee bit rough, so obviously I need some new muffins in my life. I concocted a batch of Almond Peach Protein Muffins since I love fresh, ripe, juicy peaches with almond extract in the summer. Topped with a little brown sugar and chopped almonds, the muffins aren’t overly sweet and hit the spot with just a hint of summer as we move to the fall.

Just Peachy Overnight Oats

Almond Peach Overnight Oats

With the unseasonably warm weather during the end of May here in Boston, this take on the overnight oats was a no brainer: peaches and almond. When I was little, the minute peach season rolled around, my mom would serve Almond Peaches for dessert, as a side for dinner, as a snack . . . you get the idea. Why not for breakfast? The almond extract perfectly balances with the peaches and almond milk. Hence, Almond Peach Overnight Oats were developed. To make it even better, I think i’ll toss in slivered almonds next time I make it for a crunch, but I promise, it’s perfectly balanced as is.

The Perfect Combo: Peaches & Pistachios

White Peach & Pistachio Granola

I haven’t made granola in a while, but having a snow day during my second week of work with nothing to do, this sounded like my best option. Plus, I’d have a delicious snack come the rest of the week. I went to Trader Joe’s for the first time and found dried peaches when I was looking for mangoes. They’re so delicious. I also had pistachios from the move and naturally White Peach & Pistachio Granola evolved. Toss in some nutmeg and viola! The perfect cold weather snack.

Over the Moon for Overnight Chia Seeds

I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical about chia seeds. My mom made a chia seed pudding, and it was not something I enjoyed, but these breakfast bowls are delicious. The mashed banana adds its own natural sweetness, as well as a thickness to the breakfast bowl; you won’t even need to add a sweetener. The addition of vanilla extract provides a rich flavor and maximizes the vanilla from the unsweetened vanilla almond milk. The chia seeds are high in protein, fiber, omega-3, calcium, potassium and iron (see more here from the Cleveland Clinic). This Chia Seed Breakfast Bowl is especially great because you can make it the night before, literally roll out of bed and viola! breakfast is served. Add fresh fruit and nuts and enjoy a tasty and satisfying breakfast!

Tickled Pink for Peaches

photo 3-2

This is a classic “dessert” at home. (I say “dessert” sparingly because this has been a constant argument between my mom and then me and my dad. She thinks dessert automatically equates with fruit. Not to say it doesn’t at all, but not to the extent to which she so fervently believes.) My grandmother made this for my mom, and now she’s made these Almond Peaches for me for as long as I can remember. It’s perfect as a side, as a snack or even as a dessert. It can even be added to other berries, such as strawberries or blueberries and is even be delicious as a topping for oatmeal, vanilla ice cream or a shortcake. As a topping or a alone, these almond peaches are just a classic, quick and extremely delicious dish to add to your repertoire.
