Pumpkin seeds and almond flour add wholesome nuttiness to this summer dessert, which is drizzled with an anise-flavored spirit (or brandy) before baking. The recipe was created by Nettie Colon, head cook at Chef Camp in Minnesota.


  • 2/3 cup regular rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 large ripe peaches, halved and pitted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup Xtabentun*, Pernod or Galliano (brandy works well if you are not a fan of anise).
  • Vanilla ice cream or cold heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a gas or charcoal grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Brush olive oil over peach halves and sprinkle with salt. Place peaches, cut sides down, on grill rack and grill, covered, until slightly roasted and beginning to char, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a greased 3-quart roasting pan (cut sides up) and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, combine oats, almond flour, brown sugar, pumpkin seeds, butter and maple syrup. Pulse until combined. Set aside.
  3. Drizzle half the Xtabentun over peaches, then top with oat mixture. Drizzle with remaining liqueur. Bake until topping is golden brown, about 45 minutes. Cool for at least 30 minutes before serving with ice cream or a drizzle of cold heavy cream.


  • *What is Xtabentun? Sourced from Mexico's Yucatan region, Xtabentun is a licorice-y liqueur made from rum, anise seed and fermented honey produced by bees from the nectar of xtabentun flowers. It's pretty hard to find (unless you bring it back from your next trip to Cancun). Swap in Pernod or Galliano, or you can skip the anise flavor altogether and use brandy.
