Grilled Peaches with Skillet Granola is the perfect healthy summertime dessert. Grilled peaches get topped with ice cream and a quick, simple walnut and ginger skillet granola!
| vegan + gluten free + dairy free |
We are finally in the heat of summer (lame pun intended)! And summer means cool food and no ovens. Also, we have to grill everything we possibly can while it lasts.
Because if we’re grilling salads, why not grill fruit, too?!
Or why not grill…

- Adobo Chicken Tacos with Yogurt Slaw
- Shawarma Hummus Bowls
If you’re going to eat peaches, THIS is the way to do it. Brushed with butter or coconut oil, grilled to perfection, topped with ice cream (or yogurt), and a SUPER easy skillet granola.
It’s kind of dessert but also breakfast if you serve them with yogurt!
Peaches are the perfect thing to toss on your grill. Sweet ripe peaches meet grill’s smoky char? It’s a thing of dreams. But if you want, grab some plums and nectarines while you’re at it, and have a grilled stone fruit party (or make Panzanella!)!
Or pineapple! Oh gosh, yes.
Do yourself a massive favor right now, and don’t skip the granola! It’s the PERFECT touch to these grilled peaches!
It requires one skillet and a handful of ingredients already hanging out in your pantry. It takes less than 10 minutes to cook everything up, and maybe another 10-15 minutes to let it cool down for that crispy granola we all know and love.
I’m also calling these Grilled Peaches with Skillet Granola healthy. Here’s why:
- Peaches provide both soluble and insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber can aid in proper digestion. They’re also high in Vitamin C!
- Walnuts are a fantastic source of omega-3 fats, the good kind that fight inflammation. They’re so good for brain health, helping to prevent against cognitive decline.
- Oats are a whole grain, high in fiber, also helping out with good digestion. At minimum, we should be consuming about 30 grams of fiber daily, and oats are just one great way to get there.
- Ice cream: I mean, c’mon. Ice cream.
These Grilled Peaches with Skillet Granola are vegan, gluten free, and dairy free. If you’re going to top them with ice cream (which I obviously highly recommend), make sure your ice cream fits your dietary needs. I like Nada Moo or So Delicious (but really, have you SEEN some of these flavors?!)
Oh, and if you want a Paleo version, replace the oats with nuts instead! I suggest sliced almonds and pumpkin seeds! Orrrrrr make this amazing Paleo granola.
Let’s talk about how to make this skillet granola AKA one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made (besides chia pudding!).
First, toast the oats, nuts, and spices in a skillet over medium heat. When they’re nice and fragrant, add the coconut oil and maple syrup. Stir for a minute, then remove from heat and spread the granola onto some parchment paper to cool. Once it’s cool, it should break in little clusters. Ta-da! Granola in 10 minutes without ever turning on your oven.
I’m all about that.
These Grilled Peaches with Skillet Granola are one of the easiest summer desserts you could ever make. Plus, they’re great for feeding a crowd!
I mean, how can you resist that?!

A healthy summer dessert topped with ice cream and a 10 minute crispy skillet granola. Gluten free & vegan!
- 1 c. gluten free rolled oats
- 3/4 c. chopped walnuts (or almonds)
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
- Pinch salt
- 2 Tbsp. coconut oil or dairy-free butter, divided
- 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/3 c. dried fruit or unsweetened coconut flakes, optional
- 8 medium peaches, halved, pitted
- Ice cream, for serving
To make the granola, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oats and walnuts. Toast, stirring often, until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cinnamon, ginger, salt, and 1 Tbsp. coconut oil. Cook another 1 minute until spices are fragrant, then stir in the maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir to coat, then remove the pan from heat and stir in any dried fruit or coconut flakes, if using.
Pour the granola onto a parchment-lined baking tray to cool while you make the peaches.
Halve and pit the peaches. Melt the remaining 1 Tbsp. coconut oil or butter in the microwave and brush each half of every peach with coconut oil.
Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. When hot, place the peaches flesh-side down onto the grill. Grill 4-5 minutes or until slightly soft and grill marks appear. Remove to a plate.
Serve the peaches with a scoop of ice cream and skillet granola.
