If you can, buy slip-stone (sometimes called free-stone) peaches. With these varieties it is very easy to remove the stone without bruising the peach. Of course if fresh peaches aren’t available, you can use drained, canned peach halves. And pecans can be used instead of walnuts or use a combination of your favourite nuts.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
spray oil
2 tablespoons wholemeal plain flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
20g light margarine
1/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons rolled oats
2 tablespoons brown sugar
6 peaches, halved and stone removed
low-fat vanilla ice cream, to serve
honey, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to hot, 200ºC. Spray a deep muffin tray with oil.
  2. In a small bowl combine the flour and spices. Rub in the margarine using your fingertips, then stir in the walnuts, oats and sugar.
  3. Place the peach halves, cut-side up into the muffin tray. Divide the nut mixture evenly among the peaches. Bake for 15–20 minutes until golden and tender.
  4. Serve the peaches warm with ice cream and drizzled with honey.

Super ingredient: Walnuts

  • A source of omega-3 polyunsaturated fats, associated with reduced blood cholesterol and blood pressure – walnuts are a must for a healthy heart. Like all nuts, they are also a source of fibre and vitamin E as well as the minerals potassium, magnesium, zinc, copper and selenium. A serving is a tiny handful – about 30 grams.
