Air fryer peaches, an easier take on outdoor grilling peaches, have the same delicious taste without the time involved.

Not only is this recipe perfect for serving with ice cream, but juicy, soft peaches are also a great choice for sweet fall and peach summer salads.

Air Frying Peaches is a Quick and Easy Snack

Peaches may get a reputation for being the perfect summer dessert, but they are easily enjoyed in the fall as well. There is nothing more exciting than a ripe, juicy peach added to soft vanilla ice cream.

When I say heaven, I mean heaven.

Sweet and easy, this recipe is a 10-minute peach dessert with tons of natural sweetness.

3 Ingredients

  • Sweet peaches—choose a medium peach or a large peach with a sweet flavor. Stay away from frozen peaches or canned peach slices for air-frying. Additionally, look for peaches without brown spots.
  • Honey 
  • Ground cinnamon

How to Air Fry Peaches

  1. Cut the slightly ripe peach in half and remove the pit.
  2. Place each of the peach halves onto a piece of foil large enough to fold and wrap around the peach.
  3. Fold the foil halfway around the peach and top the peaches cut-side-up with honey and cinnamon.
  4. Continue to fold the remainder of the foil around the top of the peach.

When are peaches in season?

Every year, I seem to go to the store too early for peaches!

The peach season falls between May and September, but the latter part of that gets the peaches in some states. I always find that July to September is the perfect time to get the most delicious peaches.

The best way to serve air fryer peaches.

Serve air fryer peaches with toppings like a drizzle of honey, caramel, crunch nuts, or sweet agave.

Peaches also go great alongside a scoop of vanilla ice cream, in addition to a cobbler, or with a sprinkle of the brown sugar mixture on top.

What types of peaches go into an air fryer?

Like most fresh fruits, there are many kinds to choose from. I love white peaches because of how sweet they are. But any peach, yellow peach, or white peach will do just fine in the air fryer.

  • Peaches can either be a little firm or a tad ripe (with a bit of give) before being put in the air fryer. Make sure they are not too hard or too soft.

You neither want a peach that will be impossible to cook nor one that will fall apart in the heat. The idea of the perfect peach is just underripe, and it continues to soften in the air fryer.

How long does it take to air fry a peach?

The cooking time can vary depending on the size or ripeness of the peach. While we cook our fresh peaches for 8 minutes to fork-tender, you can cook for as long as 10–12 minutes to bring the peaches down to the perfect level for you.

Test peaches with a fork and remove them when you feel they have reached the desired doneness.

  1. Did i miss the amount on honey and cinnamon

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Lisa, in this case there isnt an amount that needs to be sprinkled on. Its just to taste so drizzle as much honey as you want and sprinkle as much cinnamon as you want. Its more of a personal preference.
