Servings: 8 sundaes


For the sundaes:

  • 4 large peaches halved
  • 1 quart vanilla bean ice cream
  • cinnamon butter (recipe below)
  • cinnamon granola (recipe below)
  • canola or vegetable oil for grilling

For the cinnamon butter:

  • 1/2 stick butter salted, softened
  • 1/2 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the cinnamon granola:

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats not instant!
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


For the granola:

  • If using the homemade granola, you'll want to start that first to give it time to cook. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Add nuts and oats to a large bowl. In a separate small bowl, add the oil, salt, honey, cinnamon, and vanilla extract and whisk together. Pour mixture into bowl with oats and nuts. Stir together until well-mixed.
  • Pour granola onto large baking sheet and spread evenly into one layer. Bake 12 minutes and remove. Stir mixture and return to oven for another 12-15 minutes, until the mixture is golden brown. Remove from oven to cool.

For the cinnamon butter:

  • Add ingredients together in a small bowl and mixture together with a spoon. Set aside while we grill the peaches.

For the sundaes:

  • Preheat grill (or grill pan) to medium heat. When the grill is really hot, brush grill and the cut-side of the peaches with oil so they do not stick. Place cut-side down onto grill. Cook until the tops of the peaches become tender and warm to the touch, about 7-10 minutes. To ensure great grill marks, do not disturb the peaches.
  • Once peaches are cooked, remove from grill and arrange cut-side up. Spoon cinnamon butter into the center of each one. Place each half into a bowl and scoop 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream over each half. Top with cinnamon granola and serve immediately.
