Maple Roasted Peaches

Maple Roasted Peaches

So the last dessert I shared was on the complete opposite end of the dessert calorie spectrum.

(Grilled Doughnut Strawberry Shortcakes.)

Take a moment to go and drool.

And if you’re in the market for something sweet, delicious and not so high in calories, to end your summer meal, look no further. I feel like this recipe is somewhat oxymoronic…as who wants to heat up their kitchen in the summer…but peaches are cheapest and tastiest most tasty in the the summer. But I’m sharing it, because well…I’m feeling oxymoronic these days.

I supposed that you could grill these babies over indirect heat. I wouldn’t turn them upside down (like in this Grilled Pork Chops with Peaches recipe), as the butter and maple syrup would drip right off. But you could grill them “seed side up” for a few minutes, until they soften. Then serve.

Either way…a delicious low-cal dessert y’all!

I wonder if you could do them in the crockpot like apples. That would prevent heating the kitchen plus surround the peaches with concentrated heat.

This looks like such a delicious recipe. I hate to say it – I’m thinking about topping mine with homemade whipped cream.
