Paleo Peach Cobbler

This summer I couldn't wait to get my hands on some fresh, ripe peaches so I could make a paleo peach cobbler!  I feel like summer hasn't been fulfilled until I've eaten many bowls of this amazing dessert.  I researched paleo and raw peach cobbler recipes to get ideas of how other people made the recipe and then invented my own version based on how I would like it most.  Feel free to modify in any way, I always taste test as I go to achieve my personal perfection.  Enjoy!!

Serves: 1 person 10 times
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 35-40 minutes


- 8 Ripe peaches, sliced
- 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 Tbsp vanilla

- 1/2 c. Honey or 3/4 c. Maple syrup
- 1-1 1/2 c. Coconut flour (1 c. makes the crumble more moist, 1 1/2 makes it a little drier)
- 1 c. Chopped pecans
- 1/2 c. Unsweetened coconut flakes
- 3/4 c. Melted unsalted butter or coconut oil (or both)
- Cinnamon to taste
- Salt to taste


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Toss the sliced peaches in fresh lemon juice and vanilla.
3. Put fruit mixture in a large glass casserole dish.
4. In a medium sized bowl, combine coconut flour, pecans, coconut flakes, cinnamon and salt.  In a separate bowl melt unsalted butter (or coconut oil) and honey (or maple syrup).  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl and mix well to make a crumbly dough topping.
5. Crumble topping over fruit.
6. Bake for 35-40 minutes until top is golden brown, if the top turns brown too soon just take it out and using a wooden spoon, overturn the top layer of crumbles, since the coconut flour will cook differently than normal baking flour.
7. Take out of oven, dish out and serve hot and steamy with vanilla or butter pecan ice cream (the ice cream part is definitely not paleo, I know)!

It's all about the quality of your ingredients.  I shop as organic and local as possible, and the flavor is so much better for everything I cook!  Peaches you have to watch out for, because they are on the top of the Dirty Dozen list because of pesticide contamination, so I bought them organic and they are juicy and delicious.
When you're sprinkling salt to taste, the more you use, the more it will bring out the savory-sweet flavor of your honey or maple syrup.  The less you use, it might trick you into thinking you need to add more sweetener in.
Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Bean ice cream = to die for.
I am currently going back for my third bowl.
