Paleo Peach Cobbler
I love sweets, but nowadays I know how to eat them in moderation and/or adapt them to be gluten/dairy free. Being from the South, I grew up with sweet, decadent desserts like banana pudding, pecan pie, and one of my favorites… peach cobbler. I love eating peach cobbler during the summer when peaches are in season. Luckily, I’ve found a grain and dairy free version which leaves out ingredients like sugar and flour that weigh me down. Thanks to ovenloveblog.com for this delicious recipe!
Ingredients (serves 4-6):
*2 cups peaches; peeled, pitted and sliced
* ¼ cup water
* 4 tablespoons butter (I actually used ghee) or coconut oil
* ¾ cup almond flour (I use @bobsredmill )
* 1 egg
* ¾ cup full-fat coconut milk
* ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons raw honey (I used maple syrup)
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
*cinnamon and nutmeg, for topping
*full-fat coconut milk or cream for topping (I used @thaikitchen )
1. Preheat the oven to 350.
2. In a saucepan, add peaches and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, slice the butter into pieces and place them into 4-6 small ramekins or an 8×8 baking pan. Place the ramekins or baking pan in the oven and let the butter melt.
4. While the butter is melting and peaches simmering, mix the almond flour, coconut milk, egg, honey and vanilla until well-combined.
5. Remove the baking dishes from the oven and pour the batter on top of the butter and do not mix. Drain the peaches and spoon them evenly over the mixture. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over the top.
6. Bake the cobbler for 25-30 minutes or until they look brown and bubbly.
7. Serve warm with a drizzle of full-fat coconut milk/cream.
