Peaches for Pirates
Tonight was a night of comfort food and this capped the night off perfectly!
Slice 4 peaches in half and pit them. Place them, flesh side up, in an 8x8 oven safe pan.
Lightly sprinkle brown sugar over the peaches
In a bowl:
1 heaping tbsp of coconut oil
1 tbsp of agave nectar
1 shot of spiced rum
1 dash of nutmeg
1 dash of ginger
1 dash of cinnamon
1 dash of salt
1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
Warm mixture up slightly so that the coconut oil becomes liquid. (I just use a warm bowl)
In a small bowl mix:
1/2 cup of crumbled nuts (almond, pecan or walnut)
1/2 cup of oats
Evenly sprinkle the nut oat mix over the peaches
Evenly pour the coconut oil rum mix over the peaches
Lightly sprinkle brown sugar over it all.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes and serve warm over vanilla ice cream!
You could use whiskey or bourbon to make this a true southern dessert. If you do this, then remember to use pecans!
