Gluten- Free Peach Cobbler

I was flipping through my third cookbook, Celebrations, last week preparing for Father's Day and I came across this recipe. Naturally, it stopped me in my tracks, and I had an instant craving for it! My Celebrations book is great for holidays, but it's also great for seasonal favorites! This cobbler is in the Father's Day chapter, but it's perfect for any summer night!

Did you know that Peach Cobbler was the overwhelming choice when I polled all of my readers about which summer dessert they would want to see most in Celebrations?? Obviously, it's not just me that feels nostalgic about this dessert and summertime.

When I came up with this recipe, I thought about traditional peach cobbler, and that classic buttery taste came to mind. The ingredients are essentially flour, butter, and sugar. Since none of those are regulars in our household, I had to come up with something that could mimic the buttery consistency. The first alternative I could think of is cashew. The creaminess of cashews makes for a perfect base! Just like the original, it gives you the perfect balance of crispy and soft baked topping. Then the hint of lemon pulls all of the flavors together so well with a decadent finish. This recipe is entirely satisfying, and I don't even miss the real thing!

SERVES: 8

Ingredients:

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Put the ghee in a 9 by 13-inch baking dish and place it in the oven to melt.
  2. Combine the sliced peaches, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Combine the cashew butter, arrowroot, coconut flour, maple sugar, baking powder, and coconut milk in a stand mixer fitted with the beater attachment or use an electric handheld mixer. Mix on medium speed until well combined.
  4. To assemble, spoon the peach mixture into the hot baking dish. Spoon dollops of batter over the top.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Serve warm with whipped cream.

Make it Ahead

The cobbler can be assembled up to 2 days in advance and stored, tightly wrapped, in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before baking.

Tidbits

I never peel my peaches for cobbler because I love the color and tart flavor that the skin imparts, but you’re welcome to peel them before cooking if you prefer. Frozen sliced peaches can be substituted for the fresh peaches. There is no need to thaw them before putting them in the saucepan.
