Ingredients

Alright, let’s talk ingredients. You only need a few simple items:

  • Peaches – Choosing fresh peaches makes all the difference. They get all soft and caramelized, which is exactly what you want.
  • Brown Sugar – This adds a sweet depth to the peaches. When it melts, it creates that gorgeous caramelized topping.
  • Cinnamon – Cinnamon and peaches are a classic combo. Cinnamon adds a warm, spicy note that’s just right.
  • Butter – It adds a lovely, rich flavor to the peaches.
  • Coconut Oil – To grease the air fryer.
  • Optional Toppings – Try honey, maple syrup, ice cream, yogurt, or mint leaves.

How to Air Fry Peaches

Making air fryer peaches is simple and results in a delicious, summery treat. Here’s how to make them:

1. Preheat and prep. Turn your air fryer to 350°F. Halve and pit the peaches, then pat the cut sides dry.

2. Mix the sugar and cinnamon. Whisk together brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.

3. Butter and season the peaches. Brush the cut sides of each peach half with melted butter, then generously sprinkle them with the sugar-cinnamon mix.

4. Grease and arrange the peaches. Lightly grease the air fryer with coconut oil. Place the peach halves inside, cut side up.

Recipe Tips and Variations

Here are some tips and tasty variations to make your air fryer peaches even better:

  • Ripe peaches are key. They should be soft enough to yield a bit under pressure but not mushy.
  • Get the butter just right. Soft butter blends smoothly with other ingredients, enhancing the peaches’ flavor without being overpowering. Don’t use melted butter.
  • Try a quick test. Air fryer models vary, and so do peach textures. Do a fork test to see if they’re cooked to your liking.
  • Spice them up. For a spicy twist, add red pepper flakes to the peaches before air frying.
  • Make ’em kid-friendly. Peel the peaches if the texture is a concern. It makes them more palatable for those sensitive to different textures.
  • Ditch the dairy. Skip the butter and serve with honey and Greek yogurt for a dairy-free option.
  • Get a little nutty. Mix in finely chopped peanuts or pecans with the brown sugar for extra crunch.

How to Store and Reheat

It’s super easy to keep these peaches fresh and tasty:

To Store: Keep leftover peaches in an air-tight container and refrigerate. They’re best eaten within 2-3 days for that just-made taste.

To Reheat: For a quick reheat, zap the peaches in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Add your favorite toppings like granola, honey, or ice cream, and they’re ready to enjoy again.

Note: Don’t freeze air fryer peaches. They lose their texture and become too mushy once thawed.

  • Ice Cream – Vanilla ice cream with air fryer peaches is a timeless combo. Frozen yogurt works great, too.
  • Pancakes – Imagine starting your day with pancakes topped with these caramelized peaches. Delicious!
  • Waffles – Air fryer peaches on waffles bring a sweet, juicy contrast to the crispy texture. Perfect for brunch!

These air fryer peaches are a healthy treat everyone will love! Seasoned with cinnamon and brown sugar, they’re a sweet treat you can whip up in no time.

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe peaches, halved and pitted

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

  • Melted coconut oil, for greasing

  • Honey or maple syrup for drizzling, optional

  • Vanilla ice cream or yogurt for serving, optional

  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the air fryer to 350° Fahrenheit (175°Celsius). Prepare your peaches. Once they’re halved and pitted, pat the cut sides dry with a paper towel. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Brush the cut sides of the peach halves with melted butter. Generously sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the butter.
  • Lightly grease the air fryer with coconut oil. Arrange the peach halves in the air fryer basket, skin side down, sugar side up. You may have to fry them in batches.
  • Air fry them for 8-10 minutes or until the peaches are soft and the edges are slightly caramelized. The sugar will be golden and caramelized.
  • Let the peaches cool slightly. Then, serve warm with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup and vanilla ice cream (or yogurt). Garnish with fresh mint leaves and enjoy!

Notes

  • For best results, use ripe peaches that are still firm to touch. Overripe peaches may become too mushy when cooked.
  • Depending on the natural sweetness of your peaches and personal preference, you can adjust the amount of brown sugar used.
  • Experiment with different spices, like nutmeg, cardamom or ginger, for a unique flavor twist.
  • You can use olive oil spray or more melted butter instead of coconut oil to grease your air fryer basket.
