Sunday bake series: Baked nectarines

23 Sep

I took the day off from running and actually had a great day all by myself. Mark was at work so I was free to do things at my own pace. I walked around the farmer’s market, watched a movie and had a whole afternoon of cooking. I made a sweet potato soup, roasted vegetable tart and, for dessert: baked nectarines.

(That blob in the middle is yogurt that was engulfed by the soup)

These baked nectarines are super easy and can be made with peaches too.

Ingredients:

  • 2 nectarines
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of oats
  • 1 egg white
  • handful-ish of sliced almonds

Directions:

  1. Cut nectarines in half, removing the pit. Place halves in a baking dish, drizzle with honey and some water. Bake at 425F for 30min.
  2. Mix oats, cinnamon, egg white, and almonds in a small ramekin.
  3. When nectarines are baked, place oat mixture in oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Place a spoonful of oat mixture on the nectarine, drizzle with extra honey if desired and serve.

It’s so easy and kind of a healthy-ish dessert.

This weekend was the town’s annual fall fair so Mark and I checked it out. We rode the ferris wheel and were amazed by the farm animals – we’re such city folk. One work horse in particular was very pretty. Mark snapped a photo of her and it almost seems as though she is smiling.

We sat through the end of the truck pulling competition. Mark wanted to see the demolition derby but the country girl inside me has limits.

Now it’s time to enjoy a beautiful, sunny Sunday.
