Peach Affogato & some link love

Peach affogato is a simple summer dessert. Top the peaches with ice cream and a simple maple-cinnamon oat granola. Drizzle with cold brew coffee and enjoy!

Peach Affogato

Remember way back in the day when blogs were new and everyone did “Follow Friday?” I’m thinking of bringing that back because sometimes I’m just so excited about what other talented folks are doing. Yes, I do realize that today Saturday… but regardless, here’s a list of things I’ve loved and drooled over this week. And P.S, if you need one darn simple way to enjoy peaches, scroll down for this pictured Peach Affogato.

This luscious Pecan Roasted Beet Dip with Sage makes me so excited for fall… mmm, sage.

These colorful tortillas! So creative!

Ten Lunch Ideas that Spark Joy.

Craving cozy Black Beans & Rice ever since I saw this post go up.

Speaking of simple things that I really want to eat, I love these non-recipe posts that Jessie of Faring Well has been writing lately.

Cotter Crunch is a new-ish-to-me (gluten free) blog that I’ve been loving lately and these Dirty Chai Dark Chocolate Brownies are calling my name!

I follow exactly 1 YouTube channel and it’s called Hot For Food – you have to check out this video of Lauren’s clever Vegan Back to School Bento Boxes. I love how she uses the leftovers from one recipe to make the next.

I’m a guest judge for this Boos Cutting Board Photo Contest. They make the best cutting boards!

I’m getting totally excited for hot soup season, but I’m still enamored by this idea of Cold Summer Ramen.

For a good dose of wanderlust, scroll through Laura’s gorgeous photos in her Kyoto Travel Guide. Makes me want to jump on a plane to Japan!

And in non-food news, these corgis on a waterslide made my week 🙂

Serves: serves 4
Ingredients
  • 2 large ripe peaches, pitted and sliced (optional: grill them*)
  • 4 scoops of ice cream (non-dairy, if desired)
quick granola crumble:
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • drizzle of coconut oil (~1/2 tsp)
  • drizzle of maple syrup (~1/2 tsp)
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • Bake the granola at 325°F for 10 minutes or until toasted.
  • Assemble each affogato in a short glass with peach slices, a scoop of ice cream, and a drizzle of cold brew coffee. Top with a sprinkle of the granola crumble. Serves 4
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. On the baking sheet, toss together the oats, walnuts, coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt. Spread the mixture into a flat layer and bake for 10 minutes, or until toasted.
Notes
*This isn't pictured in the photo, but the peaches are SO delicious grilled. Place peach halves onto a hot grill. Don't touch them for about 5 minutes or until char marks form. Flip and grill the other side for a few minutes or until soft. Serve ½ grilled peach per person.

    Last night, I was preparing for a small dinner party. I had Trader Joe’s frozen desserts being thawed in the fridge, waiting to be served. Then this peach dessert recipe popped into my inbox. I thought: oh, I have all the ingredients. I can totally make this. I cut up the peach, mixed the rolled oats, and put them in the oven. It was ready by dessert time, and it was a hit! It looks so elegant and fancy too. Thanks.

  6. Ha – i love these and totally remember the old follow friday posts! Just opened up all these links now about to have a browse… thanks for distracting me deliciously on a Mon morn Jeanine 😉

    Ah I want to try this one tonight, estimated cooking 15min its probably took me more than that 😆

  12. Hey, Jeanine!
    This affogato looks divine, I think it will be my breakfast this Sunday! I mean, it has fruit, dairy, oats, and nuts, so it is qualified as breakfast, right? And I totally agree about grilled peaches! 🙂
