Nectarine Honey, Ginger Crisps

I don’t often venture into the world of dessert making…mostly because I like dessert eating. Sometimes though, I get an idea in my head and I just have to go with it. This dessert came to mind after my most recent Costco trip because they had flats of organic nectarines. We try to eat as organic as possible, so I’m always excited to see new organic things at Costco.

If an apple and a peach had a baby, they would call it a nectarine. A nectarine has a texture halfway between the 2. If you can’t find nectarines, peaches will certainly do the trick. Personally, I can’t stand the texture of apples, so I probably wouldn’t like them unless they got super soft in the oven.

Nectarine Honey, Ginger Crisps — makes 2 servings

1 Nectarine
3 tablespoons Butter, if vegan substitute with coconut oil
Honey, if vegan substitute with agave
1/2 cup Oatmeal
1/4 cup Flour, if gluten free blend oats into a powder
1-2 teaspoons Ground Ginger

Preheat oven to 375°F
Cut the nectarine in half lengthwise and remove the pit, keeping both halves intact
Sprinkle a little salt on each half
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat
Pour half of the butter into a small bowl, leaving the rest in the skillet
Place both halves face down in the skillet
Cook for 4-5 minutes, until the faces begin to turn golden
Place the nectarine halves in a small baking dish, face side up
In the bowl with the butter, add your oats, flour, a pinch of salt, 2 teaspoons of honey and 2 teaspoons of ginger
Stir everything together and taste a little bit of it, adding more ginger and/or honey to suit your taste
Drizzle a little honey and sprinkle a little ginger on the face of each nectarine
Divide the oat mixture between the 2 nectarine halves, being sure to fill the ‘well’ in each half
Bake for 15 minutes, serve warm
If you’re feeling extra feisty, serve with vanilla ice cream

    Can I add in some slivered pistachios?

  2. I am excited to try this as we have some peaches that are a little past the point of anyone grabbing them to eat. Maybe a little hard one handed but k and I could do it together. We are out of ginger. Thinking about replacing with cinnamon.

      Awesome! I hope you guys like them! Since peaches are a lot softer than nectarines and if they’re really ripe, they probably won’t need to cook quite as long. And cinnamon would be amazing with these! Very autumn-y!
