Baked peaches with coconut date crust

IMG_1915

Yes, It’s peach week. Can’t help it. You have to eat them when’s the season. So, I was thinking of making an easy dessert. In autumn we usually make baked apples or apple crumble. I wanted something similar, with a summer twist. With peaches.

Since I’m trying to make desserts without any sugar, peaches are pretty great. They’re so sweet you don’t have to add any sugar at all. It’s a bit more complicated when it comes down to making crusts. But a couple of dates will help. When finely chopped, they get sticky enough to bind all the ingredients. And they add a wonderful caramel flavor when baked.

Rolled oats and coconut work great together. The oats add a lovely rustic flavor and texture, and coconut reminds you of summer.
