Down Home Summer Peaches
A chewier version of a no-bake peach cobbler or peach crisp. I make this for my husband in our 'down home' farming community where Calhoun County peaches are extra-sweet! The peaches must be in their peak season to be sweet enough; canned peaches will not be as good!
- Serves: 2 persons
- 3tablespoons butter
- 4cups quick-cooking oats
- 1tablespoon maple syrup, or to taste
- 1tablespoon corn syrup, or to taste
- ¼cup brown sugar
- ⅓cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- ½teaspoon almond extract
- ½teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2fresh peaches, pitted and sliced
Step 1Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour quick oats over butter; cook and stir until oats are warmed, about 30 seconds. Drizzle maple syrup and corn syrup over the oats and stir to coat. Sprinkle brown sugar over the oats and immediately remove skillet from heat; stir mixture until the sugar melts and the oats are coated, 1 to 2 minutes.
Step 2Pour the oats mixture into a bowl; add chocolate chips, almond extract, and vanilla extract. Gently stir the mixture to distribute chocolate chips throughout the oats mixture; spread onto a flat, shallow pan to cool completely.
Step 3Divide peach slices between 2 bowls. Sprinkle oats mixture over the peaches.
