A CLEAN Recipe for Peach CobblerThe two most important things to keep in mind when buying the best peaches for your cobbler are:
- Buy organic. Year after year, peaches land on the Environmental Working Group’s notorious Dirty Dozen List. And once again they made it this year too.
- Go local! If you’ve heard the saying about “bruising like a peach”, it’s not hard to imagine why you wouldn’t want your peaches to be crammed in a truck, piled on top of other peaches and driven halfway across the country.
- Look for vibrantly colored peaches and avoid the lackluster dull ones. Although not always the case with produce, when it comes to peaches, if it doesn’t look good it probably won’t taste good either.
Gluten Free CLEAN Recipe for Peach Cobbler
- Prep Time: 15 minutes
- Cook Time: 45 minutes
- Total Time: 60 minutes
- Yield: 6 to 8 1x
- 12 organic peaches (chopped)
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon (divided)
- 1/4 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
- 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (divided)
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons arrowroot
- 2 1/2 cups gluten-free oats
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup organic (extra virgin coconut oil, at room temperature)
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- Vanilla dairy-free ice cream (optional (see notes below for brand suggestions))
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix together the peaches, 2 1/2 teaspoons of the cinnamon and a pinch of salt. In a separate small bowl, use a fork to whisk together the 3 tablespoons of the maple syrup, the vanilla and lemon juice. Add in the arrowroot and mix to combine. Pour the maple syrup-vanilla mixture over the peaches and use your hands to coat the fruit. Transfer the peaches to a 9-inch deep pie dish. Set peaches aside.
- In a separate medium-sized mixing bowl, mix together the oats, brown rice flour, coconut flour, measured salt and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Add the coconut oil to the bowl and use a fork to work the oil into the flour mixture. Add the remaining 1/4 cup maple syrup and pecans; use your clean hands to mix the ingredients together.
- Use your hands to crumble the flour mixture over the peaches. Cover the pie dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, and bake 15 to 25 minutes longer or until the topping is golden and the fruit filling is bubbling a little. Set cobbler on a wire rack to cool and “set” for at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve warm with vanilla dairy-free ice cream.
I have tried a number of different dairy-free ice creams, but the cleanest and, in my opinion, best-tasting is Coconut Bliss.
