Peach Almond Polenta Squares
Serves: 15 squares
I only use eggs from local farms where I know the hens are free to roam
  • 3 medium ripe peaches, skin on, rinsed and sliced
  • ½ cup extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil
  • ⅓ cup pure cane sugar
  • ¼ cup roasted unsalted almonds, freshly ground (that's 4 Tbsp ground)
  • 3 Tbsp stone-ground Polenta
  • 3 pasture-raised large eggs*
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  1. Preheat the oven to 370 F.
  2. Place the olive oil, cane sugar, ground almonds, polenta, eggs and vanilla in a medium bowl and stir well with a spoon.
  3. Add the whole wheat pastry flour and baking powder and stir well again.
  4. Pour the batter in a 10.5" by 7" rectangular baking dish, lightly greased with a drizzle of olive oil.
  5. Place the sliced peaches on top of the batter.
  6. Place in preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  7. Let cool and cut into 15 squares (5 by 3).
