    If you’ve never had baked peaches before, then you’ve definitely been missing out on this naturally sweet and delicious dessert. We love making this baked peaches recipe during the summer when peaches are ripe and juicy.

    While peaches can be enjoyed raw, baking them in a hot oven makes them even more tender and sweet. We also love the contrast of cool frozen yogurt or ice cream with the warm peaches.

    Not only that, but peaches are an excellent source of vitamins and antioxidants and will satisfy your sweet tooth without loads of sugar or food additives.
