Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 8 minutes | Serves 4

Ingredients :

2 egg whites
1 tablespoon water
¼ cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons brown sugar
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 cup crisp rice cereal
2 medium, very firm peaches, peeled and pitted
¼ cup cornstarch
oil for misting or cooking spray

Directions :

1. Preheat air fryer to 390 ° F.
2. Beat together egg whites and water in a shallow dish.
3. In a food processor, combine the almonds, brown sugar, and almond extract. Process until ingredients combine well and the nuts are finely chopped.
4. Add cereal and pulse just until cereal crushes. Pour crumb mixture into a shallow dish or onto a plate.
5. Cut each peach into eighths and place in a plastic bag or container with lid. Add cornstarch, seal, and shake to coat.
