With Fresh from farm Peaches, no sugar and no refined flour, this dish is a dream for weight-watchers. Super simple healthy dessert recipe made with a simple technique.

This World Environment Day, I attended a talk at The Imperial, about growing your own food by Sangeeta Khanna,  noted food and nutrition consultant. With major emphasis on using local grains, adding more greens to our diet and growing our own food, the talk was truly inspiring. Gurjas, currently obsessing over farming and its various techniques, learnt so much from Shabnam Kapur, co-founder Khetify, who also spoke at the same event regarding the importance of connecting with nature.

Later we gorged on Purple quinoa, Parsley, Pomegranate and Millet salad, Avocado, lime, tomato and cilantro along with dehydrated banana chips. Also having Buckwheat Scones, Gramflour pancakes topped with micro greens and Raw Papaya Salad from their Green Hi-Tea, made me learn so much about intelligent and delicious food pairing.

As Gurjas and I were leaving, Aparupa handed over some lovely peaches from her charming abode in Uttarakhand, The White Peaks, while Ruchi gave me a bag full of Healthy goodies.

All pumped up, I decided to come back and bake something healthy. As I didn’t want to use refined flour (maida), sugar or excess of butter, I decided to use the Moringa Honey, from the healthy goodies bag. Organic, nutritious and an ultimate superfood, the honey, I felt, would ably compliment the fresh from peaches in my dessert.

The recipe is fairly simple and keeps the integrity of the ingredients intact. It respects the freshness of the peaches and retains juiciness and deliciousness. The honey adds just a hint of sweetness and a unique flavour. The crumble on top, made with Almond flour, is healthier than the one made with refined flour. This is one of the best recipes if you’re following a paleo diet.

Usually, I don’t make such healthy desserts, however, this is one recipe where I have tried to experiment with my choice of ingredients and pairing. So, you too put on your apron and think of using ingredients that add value to your well-being.

Ingredients:

Ingredient Quantity
Peaches 8-10 pieces, peeled and sliced
Almond Flour 1 ¼ Cups
Sea Salt 1/8 Teaspoon (TSP)
Butter 2 Tablespoon (TBSP)
Moringa Honey* 1 TBSP
Vanilla extract ½ TSP
Blackcurrants 25 grams

Method:

  • Preheat the oven at 150 Degree Celsius.
  • In a bowl, combine almond flour and sea salt, mix them well together.
  • In the same mix, add butter, Moringa honey and vanilla extract. Give it a good mix by using a spatula.
  • Wash, peel and slice peaches and place them in a ceramic dish. Make sure you grease the dish with butter before placing the peaches in it.
  • Sprinkle blackcurrants on top of the peaches.
  • Sprinkle the Almond flour mixture over the fruit and make sure it’s evenly spread.
  • Put it in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • Once the top is golden brown, take it out of the oven. Keep it to cool. You can eat it just as it is or (if you don’t mind some calories) serve it with custard or ice cream.

 * In case, Moringa Honey is not available, you can use normal honey or maple syrup.
