  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8 sundaes 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Toasted Oats

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Honey Peaches

  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) unsalted butter
  • 4 peaches, halved or quartered
  • 8 scoops of vanilla ice cream

Instructions

  1. In a stainless steel or cast iron skillet set over medium heat, toast the oats for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the 1/4 cup of butter and stir so the oats are evenly coated.
  3. Add the 1/2 cup brown sugar and stir again to coat.
  4. Let cook for about 5 minutes, or until the sugar and oats have caramelized.
  5. Remove to a plate or sheet pan and spread in an even layer.
  6. Sprinkle with the 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp cinnamon and stir to coat.
  7. In the same pan over medium high heat, place the 3/4 cup honey.
  8. Stir frequently for 3-5 minutes, until the honey is thin and fragrant.
  9. Add the 1/4 cup butter and continue stirring. The honey should darken and thicken, caramelizing in the process.
  10. Add the peaches flesh side down and cook for 2 minutes on each side. If your peaches are pretty firm, cook 4 minutes each side.
  11. Remove from heat and set aside.
  12. In stemless wine glasses or small bowls layer about 1/4 cup of the toasted oats (reserve a pinch for sprinkling on top), a scoop of vanilla ice cream, then half or two quarters of a peach.
  13. Spoon some honey on top and then sprinkle with the reserved oats.
