How to Make these Easy Baked Peaches
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the peaches in half and remove the stone. Place them in a casserole or other glass dish.
- In a small bowl mix together coconut oil, honey, and cinnamon. Glaze the peaches with it and bake them in the oven for 30-50 minutes. Depending on how ripe your peaches were and how juicy you want them to be. I would check after 30 minutes and poke them with a fork to check. You could use this time to baste them as well.
- Once the peaches are done to your liking, serve them with a tablespoon of coconut yogurt. Another option would be ice cream or coconut whipped cream.

My Favorite Toppings
- Coconut yogurt or yogurt if you tolerate dairy: This is my favorite because the tartness goes so well with the sweetness. If you use coconut yogurt the brand you choose is crucial to this dip tasting either fantastic or not so great. Cocojune is my absolute favorite brand, Anitas and Coyo are great as well. Choose the plain/natural variety. When looking for a regular yogurt opt for full-fat from grass-fed cows. For both coconut yogurt and regular yogurt check the ingredients listed in the back and stick to the general rule of thumb: The fewer ingredients the better. The best coconut yogurt brands will only have coconut, water, and probiotic cultures, sometimes tapioca or cassava. This is an example of some of the names that can be listed as probiotic cultures B. bifidum, B. lactis, L. acidophilus, L. casei, L. delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, L. rhamnosus, Streptococcus thermophilus. Don’t be scared by these complicated names, those are great for you. If you live in NYC check out Farm to People. I get most of my stuff from there.
- Ice cream: For those who like it sweeter ice cream is a great addition. My favorite dairy-free brand is Coconut Bliss. It does have guar gum so it is not perfect and not AIP.
- Whipped cream: Coconut whipped cream is a really easy way to make this dairy-free. Simply chill a can of full-fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight and scoop out the top. You don’t necessarily have to whip it. You can just mix it with a spoon. If you would like you could add some vanilla and honey to make it sweeter.
How to Store Baked Peaches
Simply store them in a glass or stainless steel container in the fridge for a couple of days. Warm up the peaches whenever you want to enjoy them.
