Air Fryer Peaches – Elevated!
I am one of those people who’s always late to a trend. Air fryer peaches were viral on TikTok last year, but of course it took me a year to try it out.
They are definitely worth the hype! So easy to make, and so delicious.
The trend last summer was to just add some honey, butter, and cinnamon to the centers of the peach to give them a sweet glaze.
With an extra couple of minutes, you can whip together a buttery, crunchy oat topping. Add it to the centers and make the most adorable mini peach crisps!
What You’ll Need
- Freestone Peaches (not too ripe! They need to be firm or they will get mushy in the air fryer. Cling peaches are difficult to remove from the pit and don’t leave a nice “hole” in the center for the crisp topping!)
- SunButter No Sugar Added
- Coconut Oil
- Maple Syrup
- Cinnamon & Ginger
- Sea Salt
- Optional Add-ins: Flax meal, coconut, or chopped nuts (like pecans or walnuts)
This crisp topping has the best flavor and texture, like an oatmeal cookie! I use a similar topping on my Healthy Blueberry Crisp.
The magic is SunButter! It’s a great addition to gluten free baked goods, adding healthy fats, and a mildly nutty flavor. My very favorite cookies are these Vegan Oatmeal Cookies made with SunButter.

How to Make Air Fryer Grilled Peaches
Step 1: In a small bowl, combine the SunButter, maple syrup, coconut oil, cinnamon, ginger and sea salt. Mix together well.
Step 2: Add in the oatmeal, and optional coconut, seeds, or nuts, and mix to combine. Set aside.
Step 3: Cut washed peaches in half, and remove the pits.
Step 4: Preheat air fryer to 350º F for 5 minutes.
Step 5: Place peaches cut-side down in the air fryer basket, and cook for 7 minutes. This starts to caramelize the peaches around the edges.
Step 6: Flip peaches over, add 1 tablespoon of oatmeal topping to the centers, and return to cook for another 5 minutes.
Step 7: Serve peaches hot with ice cream!
How to Store Leftover Peach Crisp
This recipe makes enough crisp topping for 4 servings (8 peach halves). If you’d like to make a smaller serving, I recommend making the full batch of crisp topping, and storing it in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
When ready to enjoy this healthy peach crisp, slice a peach, air fry it, and add in some crisp topping!
If you make too many air fryer peach crisps, store the leftovers in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Enjoy cold (with Greek yogurt!), or reheat in the air fryer at 350º F for 5-7 minutes.
Do the peaches need to be ripe?
Overly ripe peaches will become mushy in the air fryer. Unripe peaches won’t have a great sweet flavor, since this recipe is very low in sugar.
Find peaches that are just starting to ripen, but haven’t gotten too soft yet.
Other Fruits that work in an Air Fryer
Can I substitute peaches for another fruit? Nectarines or plums would work well in this recipe!
Or choose to make mini apple or pear crisps. These harder fruits would need extra time in the air fryer, so air fry cut side down until the fruit is softened, about 10-12 minutes, prior to adding the crisp filling.
Make Simple Air Fryer Grilled Peaches
Instead of the crisp topping, keep this super simple by brushing peaches with a combination of coconut oil, maple syrup (or honey), and cinnamon.
In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil (or butter!) with 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Air fry peaches cut side down for 7 minutes. Flip them over, and brush each peach with the mixture. Continue to caramelize the peaches for 5-7 minutes, until browned around the edges.
