Healthy Eats: Paleo Peach and Blueberry Cobbler

The other day my mom gave me about 3 dozen peaches and nectarines. I told her it was too many for just the two of us, but she insisted that I take them all. She had buckets full in her kitchen, so I think she wanted to unload them on me. I took to eating one peach a night, and soon realized that I would never make it through the lot. So I scoured Pinterest for an easy peasy cobbler recipe and found this one on Paleo Fitness Mama’s website. It stood out to me because it was simple, required few ingredients, and no added sugar.  The part that took me the longest was cutting all the peaches.  For a non-baker, this recipe was awesome to follow for its simplicity.  Sad news is: it turns out that about 5 peaches is all it took to make this cobbler (I still have a good amount of peaches left.)

Here’s her recipe:

Ingredients
For the filling:
  • 5 cups peaches (sliced)
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 – 4 tbsp honey 
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder (not required, but will help thicken the juices)
For the topping:
  • 1½ cups of almond flour
  • ¼ cup of melted butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of cinnamon is desired
 
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients for the filling and gently toss (hands work great)
  3. Lightly grease pan with butter or coconut oil.
  4. Pour into an 8 in. by 8 in. baking pan.
  5. In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients for the topping and then spread evenly over the top of the filling mixture.
  6. Bake until the topping is slightly golden (about 40 minutes)
voila!

voila!

I left out the arrowroot powder and it came out fine.  The only thing I will say about this recipe is that the peaches didn’t soften enough in the oven.  Next time I’ll use over ripened peaches.  The crumble part of the cobbler seems to be the tastiest bit (of course), I might increase the amount of topping I make next time.  And there will probably be a next time.  If you have an easy and tasty peach recipe, send it my way.  I’ve got quite a few to go through yet.
