Instant Peach Pie in the Microwave!

I love a good, single-serving dessert. I do my best to avoid having lots of sugary food laying around, especially when I‘m avoiding grains, but sometimes I get the midnight munchies. I wanted to create something simple to assemble that involved fresh fruit and no grains. Enter, the Instant Peach Pie!

I was unsure at first how the peaches would hold up in the microwave, but they do fantastically as long as you don't overcook them. If you adjust the cooking time slightly (I would suggesting going 30 seconds to a minute longer), you could also use your favorite in-season apple variety. You can even make this dessert Paleo or Whole30 friendly by simply substituting the butter for ghee and the agave nectar for chopped dates.

This recipe also leaves room for you to experiment with your favorite toppings. I would recommend shredded coconut or chopped dates. Chopped walnuts would also be an excellent source of crunch!

The finished product: buttery, warm peach pie filling for one!

  • 1 peach (medium to large is best)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon salted butter
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

I prefer agave nectar in this recipe because it has a lower glycemic index, which means it won't spike your blood sugar the same way table sugar will. If this is a midnight snack, the last thing you want before bed is a sugar rush!

If you don't have agave nectar on hand, you could also use brown sugar or honey.


  1. Dice peach into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Add peach slices, agave nectar, brown sugar, and cinnamon to a medium-sized mug or small bowl.
  3. Slice the room-temperature butter and place on top of all the other ingredients in the mug or bowl.
  4. Microwave between 60 to 90 seconds, depending on the strength of your microwave.
  5. Let cool. Enjoy!
