Jeanine here, with a super simple dessert to accompany your Father’s Day cookout or any summer BBQ. Once you’re finished with burgers & steaks, toss some fresh peaches onto the already-hot grill for a seasonal dessert.There are few things I love more in the summertime than ripe juicy peaches, but trust me… grilling takes them to the next level — the sugars caramelize and they become that much sweeter. I sprinkled them with this no-bake walnut crumble topping, perfect for hot summer nights when the last thing you want to do is turn on your oven. Scoop some vanilla ice cream on top and pass around the spoons.

Grilled Peach Crumble

*serves 4, scale accordingly


  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt (unless you’re using salted butter)
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • a few teaspoons flour, if necessary for the crumble
  • 4-6 peaches
  • ice cream


  1. Make the crumble by crushing the walnuts together with the brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. I did this in a plastic bag using a wooden kitchen mallet, a rolling pin would also work. Add the butter and, using your hands, crumble it into the mix until just combined. If it’s too moist and not crumbly, add a bit of flour. The crumble can be made ahead, store at room temp.
  2. Slice your peaches and grill for a few minutes on each side.
  3. Serve the peaches with some of the crumble and a scoop if ice cream.

    Sounds and looks absolutely delicious. I just made a recipe on my blog with grilled nectarines. Love the idea of the crumble. Great dessert option.

    I love grilled peaches. Funny enough for us peaches are a very late summer, early fall dish…that’s when our exquisite Ontario peaches are ready. They are amazingly good!

      Oh right, I grew up on juicy Michigan peaches that were out (I think) in July/August… Our little Texas peaches happen in the late spring and then they’re gone quickly.

    I love grilling fruit. When you grill or roast fruits and vegetables, it is able to really bring out such amazing flavor. We grill peaches, nectarines, plums, pineapple, anything really! Great recipe.

    • Jeanine Donofrio June 28, 2013 at 9:31 am

      me too… I’ve found that it also helps forgive slightly unripe peaches.

    Looks so delicious! I love everything that is crunchy, this dessert is perfect! And peaches are divine, especially with ice cream!

    • Jeanine Donofrio June 28, 2013 at 9:32 am

      me too, I think a perfect dessert is both creamy and crunchy 🙂

    Perfect. We sometimes drizzle the peach flesh with balsamic vinegar before placing them on the grill, caramelizes it into a lovely, tart flavor. Will definitely add this crumble topping next time : ) Miss TX peaches, my family used to go peach-picking in Fredericksburg at the beginning of every summer! They don’t taste as good anywhere else I’ve lived!

    • Jeanine Donofrio June 14, 2013 at 4:30 pm

      I love them with a little balsamic too (I have a little bit of a balsamic addiction).

      You’re right, nothing is like those Fredericksburg peaches, I’ve been obsessed with them ever spring since I moved here.

    Hi! I just used this recipe after I found it come across my feed on Pinterest but made a slight modification. I didn’t have any nuts so I substituted some oats instead. It was divine! Thank you!
