Nectarine + Cinnamon Vanilla Oat Cookie Bake

Vanilla bean + cinnamon with oat cookie along with seasonally fresh nectarines. SO good. Top it all with vanilla ice cream + serve with fresh mint! It's a meal - OR dessert!


I love a good crumble - love it! BUT I kind of wanted something a little different than a crumble topping. I liked the idea of a thicker more cookie like component to go along with the juicy nectarines. This recipe delivers just that.


This recipe can be made with peaches or apples too!



Nectarine + Cinnamon Vanilla Oat Cookie Bake

Make 4-6 jars


1 stick butter, room temperature + softened

1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 cup gluten free oats

1 cup gluten free flour blend

1 large pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste, divided in half (or vanilla extract works too)

10 Nectarines, sliced in 8 pieces each

fresh mint for garnish

vanilla ice cream, always


Preheat oven to 350F.


In a mixing bowl, combine the butter + 1/2 cup of brown sugar (omit the 1 tablespoon for the nectarines). Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, incorporate until all the sugar is blended into the butter.


Add in the oats, flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon + vanilla bean pasta (or extract). Stir until everything comes together + looks like cookie dough.


In another small bowl, combine the sliced nectarines + 1 tablespoon brown sugar.


Using small jars, ramekins or ball canning jars, place 1 tablespoon or so of the oat cookie dough to the bottom. Press so that it flattens slightly. Add in 4-6 slices of nectarines. Top with another 1 tablespoon of cookie dough. Add in another 4-6 slices of nectarines.


Crumble any remaining cookie dough on top of the final layer. Drizzle any liquid left over in the nectarine bowl on top.


Arrange the jars on a baking tray. Place in the preheated oven + bake for 16-18 minutes - or until browned on top + bubbling. Remove from the oven + let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.


Serve with ice cream + garnish with fresh mint.


Enjoy!
