I love a good cobbler! Growing up blueberry cobbler was my favorite, but any version is a winner. This recipe 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.
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’s 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, just so sweet and peachy.
Make this next time you have to bring dessert to a cookout! I for one will be making this alllll summer long! 😉 If you make it, tag me @thecleanhappylife on Instagram!
Paleo Peach Cobbler
- 6-7 peaches approximately 6 cups
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar cane sugar works but is not paleo
- 1 tbsp tapioca flour
- 1 cup cassava flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup palm shortening softened but not melted
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 egg
- 4 tbsp 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 8×8 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!
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 two brands I like to use to avoid supporting other companies with low to no ethics. The Spectrum brand and Nutiva-Nurture Vitality both use sustainable practices toward animals and the ecosystem. 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.
