Preheat oven to 400 degrees
With a fork; mix in a medium size bowl the brown sugar, flour, rolled oats, cinnamon, pecans and 2 tablespoons butter till crumbly.
Spray with cooking oil a 9×9 casserole dish and pour half of the crumb mixture into the dish; drop the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter over the crumbs.
Wash and peel peaches; slice and layer on top of the crumb mixture; cover with remaining crumb mixture and granola.
Bake for 30 minutes; remove and garnish the top with the fresh peach slices; return to oven for an additional five minutes. Remove and let cool for 8-10 minutes; serve warm with vanilla ice-cream or fresh whipped cream and a sprig of fresh mint.
Note: Apples and Pears work well with this recipe also.
