Paleo Peach Cobbler

Gluten Free | Dairy Free |Refined Sugar Free

Peach season is on its way, so I thought what better to make than a yummy peach cobbler?!

I have always loves cobblers, mostly because I love warm desserts with cold ice cream served on top. This peach cobbler is a crowd-pleaser, and nobody will ever guess that it's gluten free, dairy free or refined sugar free. Serve it warm with your favorite non-dairy ice cream on top- I love it with So Delicious brand vanilla ice cream. 

Ingredients:

For the peach filling-

  • 2 lbs sliced peaches (this is either (2) 16 ox bags of frozen peaches or ~ 8 fresh peaches) 

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract *see notes

  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot powder  *see notes

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/3 cup honey

 

For the crust-

  • 2 cups almond flour

  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder

  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar

  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1/2 tsp pink salt

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Place the peaches in a large bowl. Add the lemon juice, vanilla, honey, and cinnamon, and stir well. 

  3. In a small bowl, mix together the water + arrowroot powder until dissolved.  Add it to the peaches mixture and stir well. Pour everything into an 8x8 pan.

  4. In another bowl, add all the dry ingredients for the crust (almond flour, arrowroot flour, pink salt and cinnamon. Add the coconut oil in, using your fingers to mix the crust into a nice crumble. Sprinkle the crumble on top of the peaches mixture, doing your best to cover all the peaches (no biggie if you leave a few holes).

  5. Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust starts to brown a bit. Be careful to watch it because oven times will vary. 

  6. Bring it out of the oven and allow it to cool for ~10 minutes, then scoop into bowls and serve with your ice cream of choice on top!

Notes:

Vanilla- pure vanilla extract is technically not paleo (vanilla beans are though), but since it's used in such small quantities many paleo followers still consume it. There are paleo-approved vanillas out there, just do a quick google search. I'm not a super strict paleo, so I just use a high-quality pure vanilla extract in my recipes.

Arrowroot flour- Just wanted to highlight this ingredient since some people are unfamiliar with it. Arrowroot flour comes from, you guessed it, a root vegetable and is a great starch to help thicken recipes. I use it in place of cornstarch, since it's much healthier and very easy to digest. Most cornstarch is GMO and I personally choose to avoid corn products most of the time since they don't offer any health benefits. You can find arrowroot flour in most grocery stores now (in the baking section) and use it in place of cornstarch in any recipe!
