Fit Peach Cobbler
2 cup chopped strawberries or blueberries
2 Tbs cornstarch
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp stevia powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs agave
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
0.5 tsp stevia
1/4 tsp salt
2Tbs apple sauce
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon agave
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Halve the peaches, remove the pit, and scrape the bitter red area out with a spoon. (Note 1) Slice the peaches in bitesized pieces. Remove the greens from the strawberries and slice. Place all the fruit into a large mixing bowl.
Mix the cornstarch, cinnamon, and powdered stevia together in a small bowl. Mix into the fruit, then add the vanilla and agave. Put the filling in a 9×9 glass pan. Its not necessary to grease the pan.
Mix all dry ingredients together then mix in the applesauce, vanilla, almond milk, and agave until just combined. Spoon the topping over the fruit filling then bake at 350°F for 30 min or until the topping is golden brown. Let cool for about 20 minutes.
Serve warm by itself or with vanilla dairy-free ice cream. Makes about 6 servings.
“I want a pie. I want a peach pie. I want a nice cobbler” -Creed Bratton
Note 1: The red part of the peach, close to the pit, becomes much more bitter after being cooked. scrape it out to ensure a nice taste. Just try to get most of the red part out.
Note 2: The agave in the filling and topping can be swapped out with a few different things: brown sugar, maple syrup, granulated sugar, date syrup, or coconut sugar. Using just a bit of sugar helps to conceal the aftertaste of the stevia.
Note 3: The very vanilla So Delicious cashew milk ice cream is a super tasty addition to this dessert.
Note 4: You may swap out the strawberries with whatever kind of berry you like. At first I was skeptical of using strawberries. I thought blueberries would be the best match with the peaches; and while the blueberries tasted amazing, in this recipe, the strawberries tasted even better.
Note 5: You may remove the skins form the peaches if desired but I found that keeping the skins is easier and does not alter the cobbler experience.
Note 6: Check off 5 out of your 24 items on the daily dozen checklist with just one serving of this cobbler.
