Roasted Nectarine Slices with Coconut Sugar

I love stone fruit–peaches, nectarines, plums, cherries–in baked goods, savory dishes, fresh, and especially roasted. A nectarine is similar to a peach in flavor, minus the fuzzy pelt.

Roasting brings out the sweet-tartness of ripe nectarines and gives them a unique texture that pairs well with a variety of foods.

Nectarines are a good source of fiber, vitamins A and C, niacin, and potassium.

Make a batch of roasted nectarine slices to top your Greek yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes and waffles or to serve alongside pork or chicken dishes.
