Ingredients

  • 3 pounds fresh peaches, peeled, halved and sliced 1/2 inch thick

  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar, divided

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided

  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract

  • ½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour

  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • ¼ cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

  • ¼ cup slivered almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Gently stir peaches, 1/4 cup brown sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon salt, vanilla, ginger and almond extract together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. Spoon the mixture into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.

  2. Stir flour, oats and the remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a medium bowl. Add butter and toss the mixture, using your fingers to rub in the butter, until it begins to hold clumps when compressed. Stir in almonds. Sprinkle the flour mixture evenly over the peach mixture.

  3. Bake until the topping is golden, the filling is thick and bubbly and the peaches are tender, 45 to 50 minutes. Cover loosely with foil if the top begins to brown too quickly. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
