Baked Peach Recipe
We happen to have the best neighbor. You see, he has this huge peach tree and every summer he gifts up a large bag of fresh, homegrown peaches.
This works out well for my husband, as peaches happen to be his favorite fruit. And even though he eats keto the majority of the year, peaches are one of his few weaknesses. Whether he is eating them fresh from the bag or we are in the kitchen creating a dish, he will make room for this orange fruit.

How to Roast Peaches - Step by Step
This roasted peaches recipe may look impressive and possibly intimidating, but I promise you it isn't! You will be amazed at how quick and easy this crowd-pleasing dessert comes together.
To begin, preheat oven to 375F and make sure the oven rack is in the center of the oven.
Wash and dry the peaches, then cut the peaches in half to remove the pits.
***Note: You do need to keep the outer peel on the peaches for baking. While typically for a peach pie you'd want to peel the peaches before baking, when you're making baked peaches, you keep the peel on. Why you might wonder? It helps to keep the peach half shape as the peaches break down with baking. Without the peel to help keep the fruit intact, you'd just end up with blobs of cooked peaches!
Place the 8 peach halves in a baking dish.
Top each peach half with ½ teaspoon salted butter and 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar.
Sprinkle the peaches with ground cinnamon.
Bake your prepared peaches at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes until the inside of the peach can be easily pierced with a fork. The timing will vary based on how ripe your peaches are.
Serve the baked peaches warm as-is or with whipping cream or vanilla ice cream. Caramel sauce and granola also make a great addition!
- Be sure you are working with fresh, ripe peaches. Not too firm, not too soft.
- Wash and dry them but make sure you leave the skin on the peach halves.
- Experiment with additional baking toppings such as rolled oats or almond slices.
- If serving your baked peaches a group be sure to offer a variety of additional toppings such as whipped cream, caramel sauce, additional cinnamon, roasted almonds, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
We don't recommend using canned peaches to make this dessert as the skin is necessary for baking but you of course can cook canned peaches as a peach crisp.
In small amounts, peaches can be part of a keto lifestyle. With 8-grams of net carbs per serving, you are going to have to watch your carbohydrate intake carefully, but you can include them in your keto eating plan.
Peaches are a relatively low-carb fruit, so in moderation, they can be a part of a low-carb lifestyle. To make a low-carb version of this baked peaches recipes, simply use a low-carb brown sugar substitute such as monkfruit or brown erythritol. Top with a keto whipped cream and enjoy!
