Peach Cobbler (Gluten Free, Paleo + Vegan)
- 5 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
- 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon tapioca flour
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ cup almond flour
- ½ cup tapioca flour
- 1½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used almond)
- ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar + ½ teaspoon cinnamon, to sprinkle on top
- Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare a small baking dish or three small ramekins by greasing with a bit of coconut oil and setting on a baking sheet.
- In a bowl, combine the peaches, coconut sugar, tapioca flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir to combine. Pour the fruit into the prepared pan or ramekins, dividing evenly if using more than one ramekin.
- In a different bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, coconut oil, non-dairy milk, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon coconut sugar. Mix until smooth and then dollop over the peaches.
- Combine the remaining tablespoon coconut sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the batter.
- Bake for 25 – 35 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the pastry comes out clean. Serve with dairy-free ice cream!
I’ve had a lot of peach cobbler’s in my life and I could honestly say that this is one of the best ones I’ve ever had. And it’s grain free, sugar-free, egg free, and dairy free! The crust taste’s like a sugar cookie and the filling is warm and gooey. For me, a good peach cobbler has good spices, a custard-y filing, a crust that is not soggy, and this cobbler really did have all of that. The crust had a good crunch too it which was really nice. Maybe the only negative thing about it was my Dad ate a piece of it and said he thought it had an odd flavor, but he also said he’s not used to eating food with alterative ingredients. I’ve had food allergies for about 4 years and have been eating paleo and vegan for a while and I didn’t seem to notice anything odd about the flavor.
I did not have fresh peaches so I used homemade canned peaches. I used about a jar and a half. The peaches weren’t mushy, but they still had a good flavor for not being fresh! So a lots of wins in the kitchen today!
Overall, I highly recommend it! Having food allergies or having a special diet does not have to be a negative thing! Because there is great food out there!
