Paleo Peach Cobbler (Vegan)
When life gives you peaches, it’s time to make this tasty cobbler that you can share with Paleo and vegan friends alike!
There’s nothing like fresh peaches to sweeten up the end of summer. At The Paleo Diet®, we count the days until fresh, ripe peaches show up at our local farmer’s markets. There’s a huge taste difference between peaches that have been sitting in cold storage waiting to be ripened, and just-picked fresh fruit.
When peaches are in season, we recommend baking them up in this cobbler! Ripe peaches only last a day or two, so it’s best to eat or cook them as soon as possible to retain their freshness. In this recipe, peach slices are tossed in fragrant vanilla and coconut, then topped with a naturally sweet and nutty crust.
Start by making the filling: slice up your peaches and toss them in a combination of melted coconut oil, cinnamon, organic apple juice concentrate, arrowroot starch, and vanilla extract. Mix gently, until the peaches are evenly coated. Keep the ingredients out on the counter, as we’ll use many of the same ones for the topping!
Next, start the topping by pulsing pecans in a food processor until crumbly. Add more of the coconut oil, cinnamon and apple juice concentrate, then add almond flour, shredded coconut and ground flax. Pulse again until just combined.
Pour the peaches into an oven-safe skillet or baking dish, and top with the pecan crust. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and crispy and the peaches are bubbling. Let your peach cobbler cool a bit before serving. Enjoy it while it’s warm!
