This all came about because I bought peaches at Costco and they all became ripe at the same time! Neccesity is the mother of invention and that is often how things come about in my kitchen. This isn’t a traditional pie of course – no fattening ingredients were used in this Pie. No added sugar either just lots of delicious fresh peaches, some oats, amazing Gingerbread spice from Local Spicery and a couple bananas and some other ingredients and ooh la la that is how we end up with a Perfectly Peachy Pie!
Of course a slice of Perfectly Peachy Pie is even better when served warm, a la mode with delicious Banana Nice Cream made in the Champion Juicer!
I got out a deep dish pie plate and cut those washed peaches into bite size pieces until the deep dish pie plate was heaped with peaches! I didn’t count how many it took. Maybe 6 -8. Just use as many as it takes to fill your pie plate.
I tossed the peaches with 2 teaspoons of Local Spicery Gingerbread Spice, (could sub cinnamon – write Nutmeg Notebook in the comments section at check out when ordering from Local Spicery and they will include 2 free samples with your order! Check out their SOS FREE Spice Blends) 1 tablespoon of California Balsamic Fig vinegar and 1 tablespoon of white chia seeds to thicken the peach juices. You can use any flavor of balsamic vinegar you like the best but use one that is thick, syrupy and sweet.

Put the flavors you want to try in the comment section as well.
The white chia seeds look prettier in this than regular black chia seeds. I found white ones at Whole Foods and I like to use them to thicken things that are lighter in color.
The topping was easy to put together using my Quinoa Banana Oat Muffin Mix. Two cups of muffin mix plus 2 small bananas mashed and about 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce, 2 teaspoons Local Spicery Gingerbread Spice mix (could sub cinnamon), 2 tablespoons date paste – optional mix all together and spread evenly over the top of the peaches. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake until golden brown – about 40 minutes.…
