These Air Fryer Peaches 🍑 are the BEST and you don’t have to worry about firing up the grill! These beauties are made in the air fryer and only takes 10 minutes from start to finish. They’re best with fresh, seasonal slightly ripe peaches and a great way to use up the bounty of the season. They’re naturally sweet, but I like the addition of a bit of 🍁 maple syrup as well. Plus, they get beautifully caramelized, with a slight char that brings out that sweetness even more. They’re just simply irresistible!

Why You’ll Love Air Fryer Peaches

The 🍑 peaches are juicy and sweet, with a hint of maple and little crispy bits of 🔥 caramelization that are irresistible. You can not only serve these sweet peaches for dessert (topped with ice cream or whipped cream) but you can also add them to a fresh salad or serve with burrata cheese as an elevated appetizer. Keep any leftovers refrigerated and add them to your morning yogurt with granola or on top of 🥞 pancakes or waffles. They’re the ultimate in ☀️ summer sweetness!

How to Prepare Air Fryer Peaches

🍑 First, use a sharp knife to cut the peaches in half and remove the pit. Then add the peach halves to a mixing bowl.

🥥 Now, melt a bit of coconut oil on the stove and then add it to the bowl.

🍁 Next, add in a sprinkle of cinnamon and a touch of maple syrup and then stir it all together, making sure the peaches are evenly coated.

🔥 Now, add the peaches to the air fryer and air fry at 400F (200C) for 7-9 minutes depending on your air fryer.

🍨 Finally, top the peaches with a touch of ice cream and enjoy!

Nonna’s Tip

For even cooking and caramelization, don’t overcrowd your air fryer. Depending on the size of your air fryer basket, it may be best to cook the peaches in batches.

Common Questions

Which air fryer do you use?

I love my COSORI Pro II Air Fryer Oven! It’s large and cooks everything really well. The cooking time may vary depending on the brand of your air fryer, so watch them carefully.

Yes, you certainly can still make this recipe without an air fryer. Coat them in the oil/cinnamon/syrup mixture and then place on a hot grill (indoor or outdoor) instead.

What type of ice cream do you suggest to serve these with?

You can serve these Air Fryer Peaches with anything you like. I love a coconut-based ice cream (that’s plant-based) but it’s up to you.

what fruit can i use instead of peaches?

I think you could absolutely use nectarines or plums in this recipe instead. Even apples would be delicious!

I don’t suggest making these Air Fryer Peaches with canned peaches because I think they would just be too ripe and soft once cooked.

I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
