Healthy Peach Cobbler

Healthy Peach Cobbler

A spin on the classic southern dessert recipe. This Healthy Peach Cobbler is perfected into a healthier version for you to enjoy as breakfast or dessert. 

I thought of saying goodbye to the summer with this delicious Peach Cobbler recipe. Every bite is layered with late summer pitches, rich almond butter, warming cinnamon and coconut sugar. The peaches are juicy while the crumble topping is crispy and buttery. And as intimidating, it might sound it is just so simple to make! What a better way to say goodbye to the summer than enjoying this cobbler top with coconut ice cream. 

How to Make Peach Cobbler: 

  1. In a medium bowl toss together peaches, lemon, cinnamon and a pinch of salt and set aside. 
  2. Melt coconut oil and coconut sugar in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add peach mixture and cook, stirring occasionally until caramelized about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. 
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  4. In a large bowl mix together oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the milk just until combined. Add the peaches and stir. Pour the mixture into a baking dish and set aside. 
  5. For the crumble: Mix the almond flour, coconut flour, oats, coconut oil, and almond butter. Spoon the crumble on top of the baking dish and place in the oven. 
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. 
  7. Serve warm with a scoop of coconut ice cream.

Almond Joy Overnight Oats Ingredients

Almond Joy Overnight Oats
Almond Joy Overnight Oats

Gluten Free Oats- If you are not celiac or have a gluten intolerance regular oats would work just fine. Just use rolled oats and not the quick oats version.
Chia Seeds- Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium.
Coconut Milk- I use the can version since I have noticed it has a lot more flavor.
Almond Butter- Avoid using the ones that have added sugars and oils.
Cacao- Make sure you use cacao and not cocoa. They are two very different things. Cocoa has been processed, therefore for it has been stripped from a lot of its nutrients. Plus most of the time some sort of sweetener has been added.
Date Syrup- Date syrup is a thick, caramel-colored sweetener made from dates. You can either buy it or make it at home. If you decide to make it at home cut the dates and place them in water in a medium saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium heat for about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow it to cool down. Transfer the mixture into a blender and blend until very smooth. You can add more water to reach desired consistency.
Optional Protein Powder- I use a Plant Base Protein Powder but any protein of your choice works.
Toppings: You can top with any fruit you like. I also added some shredded coconut and cacao nibs for extra flavor.

As you all know I love having dessert for breakfast. I just feel that having something sweet in the morning allows me to start my day off with deliciousness and ready to tackle my day.

However, during the week I don’t have that much time to cook since we have to leave home pretty early to get to our daily activities. Which is why I like preparing our breakfast the day before.
