I’m always looking for quick and easy healthy recipes and recently discovered Mayo Clinic as a great resource. I love how they organize the recipes by ingredients, servings, and meal. I couldn’t resist this yummy peach dessert. Whole wheat flour and oatmeal in this recipe help keep the calories down and focus the flavor on the fresh fruit. You can also find a nutritional breakdown after every recipe. This dessert is surprisingly healthy!
- 8 ripe peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
Juice from 1 lemon
1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup whole-wheat (whole-meal) flour
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons trans-free margarine, cut into thin slices
1/4 cup quick cooking oats
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray.
Arrange peach slices in the prepared pie plate. Sprinkle with lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour and brown sugar. With your fingers, crumble the margarine into the flour-sugar mixture. Add the oats and stir to mix evenly. Sprinkle the flour mixture on top of the peaches.
Bake until peaches are soft and the topping is browned, about 30 minutes. Cut into 8 even slices and serve warm.
