How to make Air Fryer Peaches
Firstly, with a sharp knife, I slit the peach all around it.
Secondly, with the help of both my hands, I twisted it and separated the two halves.
Next, I removed its seeds and placed it in the prepared air fryer basket with its skin at the bottom.
Thereafter, I air fried for 5 minutes at 350-degree Fahrenheit.
Once done, I took out the basket and drizzled maple syrup on each of them and sprinkled cinnamon.
Then, I topped them with oats and nuts.
Afterwards, I attached the basket again to the air fryer and turn it on at 350-degree Fahrenheit for another 7 minutes.
Once done, I detached the basket and placed the grilled peaches on the serving plate while they were still hot.
Lastly, I scooped vegan vanilla ice cream over them and served immediately.
We devoured it thoroughly and I make it quite frequently on short notices.
What to serve with air fryer peaches
- It is important to buy the right peaches so make sure to buy firm peaches that’s ripe but not mushy.
- Most importantly, make sure to size your parchment paper as per your air fryer basket. Any extra parchment paper may cover the top of peaches while air fryer which would lead not uncooked peaches.
- Make sure to drizzle maple syrup over the peaches while they are still hot.
This taste best when served immediately.
You may refrigerate the leftovers to be used the next day but freezing will not work. Oats might get soggy and nuts may lose its texture too. If you refrigerate then air fry it again for 1 minute or so until its warm again but do not cook again or else will have burnt taste.
I recommend using fresh peaches for the best results and fresh taste.
