Super Simple Peach Cobbler

It might already be Fall officially but some of us are still trying to hold on to those fresh summer flavors…. like peaches! This peach cobbler recipe features juicy  fresh peaches (although frozen would work fine) plus a combination of Paleo-friendly flours to make this a nutritious, grain-free treat! Not only that, but it tastes so similar to a traditional gluten-filled cobbler! I think the key to this cake-like topping is cassava flour. It might not be super easy to find BUT it is a grain-free flour that can be used in almost a direct replacement for wheat flour! I find mind either on Amazon, Thrive Market or Vitacost. Sometimes you can find it at health food stores. It isn’t as low-carb as almond or coconut flour so if that’s a concern, just use almond flour to replace it!

2 cups peach slices (about 4 large peaches, peeled and sliced)*
1/4 cup coconut sugar (or honey)
Topping
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup cassava flour
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1/4 cup arrowroot starch
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup coconut sugar (or honey)
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil, palm shortening or butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt

  • In a greased 2 qt baking dish, combine peaches and 1/4 cup coconut sugar.
  • In a bowl, stir together coconut sugar, honey and oil (or butter, palm shortening) until smooth. Add in egg and vanilla and stir to combine.
  • Gently stir in almond flour, cassava flour, coconut flour, arrowroot starch, baking powder, salt and nutmeg until no lumps remain.
  • Pour batter over peaches and spread evenly over top.
  • Bake at 350F for about 20-25 minutes or until topping is cooked through and slightly brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool about 10 minutes before serving.

*If using frozen peaches, let thaw before using. *
