    Brush the tops of peach halves with olive oil then brush grill lightly with olive oil and grill flesh side down about 3 minutes or until they have nice grill marks, then carefully rotate (use a grill spatula as they may stick a little) and grill about 3 minutes longer, or until peaches have softened but still hold their shape.
    Remove from grill, add a spoonful of the mascarpone to each peach (using two spoons, one to scoop and one to scrape and drop it).

    Drizzle with honey, sprinkle with about 1/3 of the granola over top (just so you don’t cover the peaches entirely) and garnish with a raspberry and mint.
