grilled peach & walnut crumble

Grilled Peach & Walnut Crumble // loveandlemons.com

It’s going to be 106 degrees here today, so needless to say, summer is on. If you’re cooking out this weekend, I have the perfect simple dessert for you. No baking is required, just toss some peaches onto your already-hot grill and you’re nearly done.

I, myself, will be having a “cook-in,” making this on my grill pan in my temperature controlled kitchen.

A note about this walnut crumble topping – it’s become my go-to lately for quick desserts. Top it on any kind of fruit, add a scoop of ice cream & dig in.

Yield: serves 4

grilled peach crumble

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 3-4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter (I use vegan earth balance)
  • a few teaspoons flour*, if necessary for the crumble
  • 4-6 peaches
  • ice cream (I used coconut, use what you like)

Instructions

  1. Make the crumble by crushing the walnuts together with the brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. I did this in a plastic bag using a wooden kitchen mallet, a rolling pin would also work. Add the butter and, using your hands, crumble it into the mix until just combined. If it’s too moist and not crumbly, add a bit of flour.
  2. Slice your peaches and grill for a few minutes on each side.
  3. Serve the peaches with some of the crumble and a scoop if ice cream.

Notes

The crumble can be made ahead, store at room temp for up to a couple of days.

*I used spelt flour, oat flour (gluten free oat flour if necessary), whole wheat, or white would also be fine.

    Perfect dessert for the Texas heat! I”m not looking forward to the 106 degree heat here either :(

  5. this would be an amazing summer snack with all the fresh peaches right now – or even a more amazing breakfast for me!!!

  6. I love doing this with pineapple too! The charr marks are so pretty and add their own smoke hue to the stone fruit. I like using seed and nut combos for a mix flavour and serve it with good thick yoghurt. Lovely
