I love a good cobbler! Growing up blueberry cobbler was my favorite, but any version is a winner. There's something about warm, cooked fruit underneath a sweet bread-like topping!
This recipe for paleo peach cobbler uses fresh summer peaches! Of course, it's soooo yummy, you'll want to make it even when peaches are not in season. 😉 It's perfect for a BBQ or July 4th cookout.
A great way to serve this would be to top it with vanilla ice cream. Yum!! There are plenty of dairy free vanilla ice creams now, some made with cashew milk, others with almond or coconut milk. There are even some paleo versions too, but you may have to search a bit longer for them, or make them at home!
Since it's a paleo cobbler, that means it's dairy free, soy free, gluten free, and grain free!
The cassava flour is my favorite paleo cobbler. I prefer to use it in as much paleo baking as possible. In my area at least, it is also the cheapest paleo flour.
Almond, plantain, cashew, or any other paleo flour seems to be priced way higher.
An exception may be coconut flour, but coconut flour is very difficult to work with as it's a "thirsty" flour, and typically you would need a LOT of eggs and liquids to balance it out.
The cassava flour rises nicely and stays moist. It's seriously good!
As with almost any paleo flours, not all Cassava Flour is created equal. Some brands, like Terrasoul Cassava Flour, come out PERFECT and moist and delicious.
Others still come out delicious, but may not be as moist or easy to work with. Play around with different flours and, if needed, the ratio of ingredients too.
It's always a hit with people on the standard American diet too, who eat gluten and sugary foods often.
To keep things paleo, I'm using coconut sugar. It's low on the glycemic index, and is definitely a healthier sweetener.
However, cane sugar definitely works here too! I've tried it when that was all I had on hand and it tasted delicious! The only downside is that cane sugar is NOT considered to be paleo, so making this recipe with cane sugar would technically take away it's paleo label.
Cane sugar is also higher on the glycemic index.
Paleo Peach Cobbler
- 6-7 peaches approximately 6 cups
- ½ cup coconut sugar cane sugar works but is not paleo
- 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
- 1 cup cassava flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup palm shortening softened but not melted
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 egg
- 4 tablespoon almond milk
- Peel and chop the peaches into small pieces.
- Place peaches in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Add the sugar and tapioca and mix.
- Let the mixture simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. It should be thick and syrup like.
- Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with palm shortening and set aside.
- To make the topping, mix the dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.
- Add the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
- When the peaches are softened, pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Evenly spread the topping over the peaches.
- Bake the cobbler for 40-45 minutes, or until the cobbler is bubbly.
- Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
Need more paleo desserts? Try out this paleo strawberry skillet muffin! Or, these gluten free blueberry muffins (they're paleo too)! I love using fruit in desserts, and they feel more "paleo" that way too! All of these are naturally gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free, and dairy free, so you know you are safe with these! You'll be healthier just for indulging in these desserts! 😉
Palm shortening has gotten a bad rap from how it's produced. It's true, some companies horribly mistreated, even killed, animals while harvesting and producing crops. There are brands I like to use to avoid supporting other companies with low to no ethics, look for the right labels when shopping that show the product is eco friendly and sustainably sourced.
I strongly dislike consuming food that I know comes with bad practices or mistreatment, so when I can I always choose to purchase better quality brands with high ethical standards. It's definitely a process and I'm not where I'd like to be, as most of those companies are sadly smaller and have to charge a higher price.
