Down Home Summer Peaches


A chewier version of a no-bake peach cobbler or peach crisp. I make this for my husband in our 'down home' farming community where Calhoun County peaches are extra-sweet! The peaches must be in their peak season to be sweet enough; canned peaches will not be as good!

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 4 cups quick-cooking oats

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup, or to taste

  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup, or to taste

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 fresh peaches, pitted and sliced


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour quick oats over butter; cook and stir until oats are warmed, about 30 seconds. Drizzle maple syrup and corn syrup over the oats and stir to coat. Sprinkle brown sugar over the oats and immediately remove skillet from heat; stir mixture until the sugar melts and the oats are coated, 1 to 2 minutes.

  2. Pour the oats mixture into a bowl; add chocolate chips, almond extract, and vanilla extract. Gently stir the mixture to distribute chocolate chips throughout the oats mixture; spread onto a flat, shallow pan to cool completely.

  3. Divide peach slices between 2 bowls. Sprinkle oats mixture over the peaches.
